About Bob Dylan, although I'm not a huge fan, I've always liked him and listened to his music; but lately I seriously started to listen to his classic albums more carefully. My favorite record is The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, I think it contains his absolutely best songwriting; those songs are so good that only his voice, an acoustic guitar and an occasional harmonica are enough to shine. Bringing It All Back Home and Highway 61 Revisited complete his Holy Trinity in my opinion. Blonde On Blonde is great, but I'd put it on a second level. John Wesley Harding is an album I really enjoy listening to. Another Side Of Bob Dylan is an amazing songwriting effort. Nashville Skyline gets the best of country music. The Times They Are A-Changin' is minor in quality but still substancial. And New Morning is usually an over-looked album, I really like that record too.
I still need to listen more carefully to other of his classic albums like Blood On The Tracks and Desire, but for the moment they didn't get to touch me like his previous stuff.
