Interesting choices you got there, oldbrownshoe. I think many people would probably reach for Highway 61, Blonde on Blonde, Freewheelin' and Blood on the Tracks before any of those 3 albums, but I'm a big fan of them as well.

I don't think I could humanly limit myself to only listen to 3 Dylan records for the rest of my life, but if I was FORCED to, I think I'd pick Blonde on Blonde, John Wesley Harding and Bootleg Series 4: Live '66 at "Royal Albert Hall'.

Right.  And if I were allowed only one, it would be Blonde On Blonde.

In my case, I need the 9 albums I mentioned before; but this would be my ranking, more or less:

1. The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan
2. Bringing It All Back Home
3. Highway 61 Revisited
4. Blonde On Blonde
5. John Wesley Harding
6. Another Side Of Bob Dylan
7. Nashville Skyline
8. New Morning
9. The Times They Are A-Changin'

Same here. One of the greatest albums ever recorded; the Dylan encyclopedia in all its might.

I love listening to John Wesley Harding right after Blonde on Blonde, the effect is staggering. By Dylan standards, they're opposite in almost every possible way - long vs short, warm vs cold, instrumental variation vs instrumental conservatism, otherworldly lyrics vs down-to-earth lyrics etc., yet they're equally emotional and powerful (but again, in different ways). A similar effect is The Who's Quadrophenia followed by Who By Numbers.

Ah!  His daybyoo album.
 

It daybyooed here for me today! I certainly didn't need the sticker on the front (whose residue I'm still trying to remove) to tell me that it's an epiphanous daybyoo album, especially considering this definition of ephiphany: a moment in which you suddenly see or understand something in a new or very clear way.

I reckon John Lennon got this idea from that...

Right down to the open snap! I once saw a hat like that at an auction. After I looked at it and decided it was too big for my head I sat down and heard the lady behind me say to her husband, "You know, John Lennon used to wear a hat like that". Of course that was like an open invitation to turn around and talk to her. We all had a nice chat but I regret that I didn't bid on that hat anyway.

Just got his debut (I refuse to say daybyoo!) and gave it 2 listens. Really liked it - was expecting it to be much more formal and uninteresting. Both 'In My Time Of Dying' and 'House of Rising Sun' have struck me as amazing and 'Freight Train Blues' has got to be one of the funniest things I've heard lately.

I originally wanted to buy this because of "Talkin' New York" but when I was ordering it and saw that "House of the Rising Sun" was on it I was doubly excited. Every time I hear that track I like it more.

So, Blind Reverend Gary Davis taught Ian Buchanan You're Gonna Quit Me Baby in the late 1950s...


You're Going To Quit Me, Baby





And Ian taught it to me in 1972...


You're Gonna Quit Me Baby - Ian Buchanan 1972






Bob Dylan performed it in 1993...

That's interesting. And speaking of interesting so is Dave Von Ronk's voice. I like it and how he did House of the Rising Sun. I can see why Dylan used his version.


For the last several days I've had
"Turned on my record player—
It was Rock-a-day Johnny singin’, “Tell Your Ma, Tell Your Pa
Our Love’s A-gonna Grow Ooh-wah, Ooh-wah”
stuck in my head. I love that line but I was kind of disappointed to discover that the only Rock-a-day Johnnys I could find on Google was a puppet and Elton John, who was credited that way on a Jackson Browne album. I thought there was a new-to-me artist to discover!
