Think mine has to be "The Ballad of Frankie Lee and Judas Priest" or "Isis"

Coming up closely behind are:
Positively Fourth Street
My Back Pages
Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues
Percy's Song

When you're lost in the rain in Juarez
And it's Eastertime too
And your gravity fails
And negativity don't pull you through
Don't put on any airs
When you're down on Rue Morgue Avenue
They got some hungry women there
And they really make a mess outta you.

B. Dylan

I think my answer to this question changes just about every day. I've been playing Tempest quite a bit these past few months... Long And Wasted Years has to be the album's stand-out.

Too many different moods/styles, too many amazing songs and too many amazing versions of amazing songs to answer this one definitively.

That's like picking your favourite parent, or your favourite child. I'll have to pass

The triad of Bringing it all back home,Highway 61 Revisited and Blonde on Blonde rank as his most creative period,with such heights not being approached again until Blood on the Tracks.

Highway 61 Revisited is his masterpiece and arguably the best album of all time.

"It's all right Ma I'm only bleeding" from Bringing it all back home is a killer song with acoustic instrumention,so the lyrics have to carry it
Lines like "money doesn't talk it swears" give this song immortality in the eyes of singer songwriters.

With Highway 61,my picks would be "Ballad of a Thin Man'' with Bob's great piano playing and Al Kooper's outstanding atmospheric organ,and the riches to rags of "Like a Rolling Stone."



"An artist never really chooses when and where they will play.It is for promoters to make offers.It comes down as to whether tours are financially viable." Quote John Mayall.

No one can write songs as well as Dylan but Scott still writes great lyrics!!

When you're lost in the rain in Juarez
And it's Eastertime too
And your gravity fails
And negativity don't pull you through
Don't put on any airs
When you're down on Rue Morgue Avenue

And they really make a mess outta you.
