Best Bob Dylan Albums
The best Bob Dylan albums are a matter of personal preference. He has had so many great albums that it is hard to narrow it down, but these are some of those that are commonly declared to be his greatest.
- "Highway 61 Revisited." This is Bob Dylan's sixth album. It includes popular songs such as "Highway 61 Revisited" and "Like a Rolling Stone."
- "Blonde on Blonde." One thing that makes this one of the best Bob Dylan albums is that it is a double album. The more Dylan, the better it is. This album includes the beloved song "Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again."
- "Blood on the Tracks." This is one of the 'must have' Bob Dylan albums. It was released in 1975 and is a favorite among critics. It is one of the albums to which they compare his later recordings.
- "The Times They Are a-Changin'." This is an early recording that was released in 1964. This is a very political album and the title track was a favorite among Bob Dylan fans.
- "The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan." This was his second album. It was released in 1963 and included one of his trademark songs, "Blowin' in the Wind."
- "Bringing it All Back Home." Another one of the best Bob Dylan' albums, this gem was released in 1965. It included the well known song, "Mr. Tambourine Man."
- "Nashville Skyline." This was an experimental album that was released in 1969. It contains the hit, "Lay Lady Lay" and a duet with Johnny Cash.
- "New Morning." This album, released in 1970, was well accepted by Bob Dylan fans. They felt somewhat let down about his preceding album, "Portrait," and were quite relieved with this release.
- "Love and Theft." This was released in 2001. It was declared to be one of the best Bob Dylan albums and one the best albums overall by Newsweek and Rolling Stone Magazine.
- "Slow Train Coming." Released in 1979, this one surprised and turned off a lot of Dylan fans, but was well accepted by the Christian community. He recorded this after having a religious experience. It includes the title song and probably the most popular song on the album, "Gotta Serve Somebody."
