Thoughts on Bob

What’s your favorite Bob Dylan album? The early Freewheelin’ album is hard to beat and a few months ago I managed to source an original edition of the front cover photo showing Bob and his girlfriend Suze Rotolo walking through the streets of downtown New York. This and Bringing It All Back Home are two early favorites.

Blood on the Tracks is hard to beat and the bootleg album of the Rolling Thunder Revue in 1975 is a favorite. I have recently been listening to Empire Burlesque which I think is a hidden gem and is worth looking at again. The writing’s cool, the melodies are strong and Bobby’s voice is intriguing. And "Tight Connection To My Heart" is right up there.
