[quote=“for-a-samosa”]I think his albums only get better. These days I only listen to the past decade – I think all of these albums are brilliant:
Time Out of Mind, Love and Theft, Modern Times, Together Through Life
If I listen to the old stuff, it’s strangely – Shot of Love (from his born-again days?). I love the backing gospel singers and maybe it’s the recording, but he just sounds so driven.
Here’s a random Dylan fact I just remembered, speaking of gospel: I think Dylan dated Mavis Staples in the 60s – I remember listening to her talk about him when she was a guest on the NPR show Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me – very funny.[/quote]
I really like Shot Of Love, and I thought Modern Times was, uh what’s the word…charming?
You gotta love the whole Bootleg Series, so much insight into the different phases of his career.
Hey, I got at least two Bob threads that should be spun off from here, I bet you dudes got a bunch too…
What are the chances of getting a dedicated Bob Dylan forum???
I’ll bet Mr. TomHill and Mr. jimipresley would Mod it.
I’d volunteer, but as Mr. Maoman has mentioned many times, I can’t even fuckin Mod myself…
