If you are even remotely aware of American pop culture over the past 4 decades, then it would be hard to miss the impact of Bob Dylan and his songs. He is considered as one of the greatest artist in modern American music. We all need more time to get back in touch with all things D-Y-L-A-N!
I recently spent an entire week revisiting all my Dylan's CDs to complile my Top 3 Bob Dylan's albums; in case anytime soon I'm stranded on a desert island ( but still have access to iTunes for ordering CDs).
Here's my list:
1. Slow Train Coming - Bob Dylan's 19th album. Considered as his 1st attempt since he has become a born again Christian; with songs stressing the importance of Christian philosophy and teachings, and where he expressed his personal faith. Here, Dylan has done the unexpected. The single from this album "Gotta Serve Somebody" became his very first hit in 3 years. Most songs have a Christian theme to it, but you don't need to be a Christian to enjoy it. With the release of this album, a lot of Christians were drawn to his fan base.
2. Blood on the Tracks - This album marked Dylan's return to Columbia after 2 album detours with Asylum Records; considered as the greatest comeback collection of all time. Most of the lyrics in the album tells about anger, heartache and loneliness and is now seen as one of his greatest albums.
3. Blonde on Blonde - Dylan's 7th album released by Columbia records. This album marked the end of Dylan's rocking/electronic period. The songs have his brand of rock and blues with surreal lyrics and eclectic sound. This album earned went double-platinum - as befits such superb musc.
