    I feel like he started coming back into his own in 1992 with Good as I been to you. and by 1997 had his shit back on point through 2012.


    I like songs between '73-'78, but I really prefer everything up through Blood on the Tracks much more.

      fair enough, Bob's got something for everyone. I find my favorites' of Dylan's change as time goes by.

        Holy crap. Dylan put out another song and announce his first album of new material in 8 years.

            After twenty-four years of being a huge fan...
            still, my fav song is "Like a Rolling Stone." (gulp)
            I think "No Direction Home" (Scorsese) cemented that.

            My favorite album is "Bringing it all Back Home."
            It was "Its Alright, Ma" that tipped the scales that way.
            #2 is Blonde on Blonde

              I'm about the same number of years in as a crazy fan. There's really not a time frame of his that I haven't thought at some point "well, this is the best Bob ever". Even the 80s, which is pretty lean in the studio album department, produced some unreal stuff on his bootlegs from that period. His work from the the early 90s blues cover albums to Rough and Rowdy Ways this spring (sans those Sinatra albums) is insane good.

              In one of my fanboy FB clubs someone asked folks to list their favorite songs of his that weren't on actual albums. That list alone is a HoF career. Just a crazy talent.

                  NEW YORK (AP) — To many music lovers, Bob Dylan's songbook is priceless. Well, now he's put a price on it...



                  WELL, F*CK...

                      The real question is "for how much"? I had originally heard $300M, which seems insanely low considering other similar situations.

                        My initial thoughts:

                        1) the price of tickets for the Dylan museum will either undergo a significant increase or there might not be any of Bob's music to be heard.

                        2) UMG could/will start blocking any videos with his music in it, despite fair use laws.

                        3) These are the same jackals that let thousands of master tapes burn in 2008, and we're expected to trust them with the legacy of America's Poet Laureate?

                        4) Bob is getting up there in age, I hope this wasn't motivated by a downturn in his health.

                          I'm far from a completionist of Bob Dylan albums/bootlegs, but I have soooo many albums and bootlegs that whatever UMG does has zero effect on my listening life. And I know where to get more obscure stuff anytime I want it. Hell, I have every Dylan show I've been to with one lone exception that I just can't find....yet.

                                    but, if you want to hang onto your little ou team, at least understand how to use a restroom, the mute button, your kitchen or a home bar.....

                                      Cover Me counts down the 100 - yes, 100 - best Dylan covers of all time, from very famous classics to the very obscure gems.

                                                Bob Dylan is being accused in a new lawsuit of sexually abusing a 12-year-old girl in 1965. He strongly denies the allegation.

                                                Driving the news: His accuser, identified in court documents as "J.C.," alleges the 80-year-old Nobel-winning folk music legend gave her drugs and alcohol before sexually abusing her.
                                                • The woman, now 68 years old, accuses the singer-songwriter of sexual abuse, battery, false imprisonment, and infliction of emotional distress.
                                                • The suit, filed Friday and first obtained by the New York Post Monday, alleges Dylan, born Robert Allen Zimmerman, "exploited his status as a musician by grooming JC to gain her trust and to obtain control over her as part of his plan to sexually molest and abuse."
                                                • She claims his alleged "provision of drugs, alcohol and threats of physical violence, leaving her emotionally scarred and psychologically damaged to this day."

                                                What he's saying: A representative for Dylan said in a statement to news outlets, "The 56-year-old claim is untrue and will be vigorously defended."

                                                "The 56-year-old claim is untrue and will be vigorously defended," Dylan's rep said.

                                                      Okay, here's my take:

                                                      I'm not saying ol' Bob is perfect or hasn't done bad things. But the accuser is really going to have to bring more than just a lawsuit to persuade me on this particular claim. I mean, in 1965 Bob Dylan's entire life was under a microscope. People have pretty much documented his daily life that year (and many others, but ESPECIALLY 1965). I mean, DA Pennebaker filmed the entire trip to London from April 26th to June 2, 1965. Dylan went electric that summer, which is widely documented.

                                                      This pretty well sums up my current thoughts that the accuser is both ignorant and lying:

                                                      Bob Dylan Biographer: Alleged Sexual Abuse ‘Not Possible’ Due To Timeline

                                                      Author Clinton Heylin says the singer was in England and Los Angeles for much of the period in 1965 when the abuse allegedly took place in New York.

                                                      Bob Dylan is being accused of sexually abusing a 12-year-old girl in 1965, but a man who has written nine books on the singer says the allegations don’t make sense chronologically.

                                                      The accuser, a 68-year-old woman identified as “J.C.” in a lawsuit filed Friday, alleges that Dylan befriended her in April 1965, and that over a six-week period he plied her with drugs and alcohol and sexually abused her at his apartment in New York City’s Chelsea Hotel.

                                                      A spokesperson for the musician told the BBC that “the 56-year-old claim is untrue and will be vigorously defended.”

                                                      Dylan biographer Clinton Heylin told HuffPost he is skeptical about the allegations. His most recent book, “The Double Life Of Bob Dylan: A Restless, Hungry Feeling (1941-1966),” covers the period when the abuse allegedly happened in considerable detail.

                                                      Heylin said he can’t figure out when any meetings between Dylan and the accuser could have taken place.

                                                      “It’s not possible. Dylan was touring England during that time, and was in Los Angeles for two of those weeks, plus a day or two at Woodstock,” in upstate New York, Heylin told HuffPost. “The tour was 10 days, but Bob flew into London on April 26 and arrived back in New York on June 3.”

                                                      “If Dylan was in New York in mid-April, it was for no more than a day or two,” he added. “Woodstock was where he spent most of his time when not touring. And if he was in NYC, he invariably stayed at his manager’s apartment in Gramercy, not the Chelsea.”

                                                      Heylin also said the singer didn’t start living at the Chelsea Hotel until autumn of that year.

                                                      The alleged abuse would have occurred while a film crew was following Dylan around 24/7 for what became the 1967 documentary “Don’t Look Back.” Heylin said he is skeptical the singer could have gotten away with the alleged abuse during the most documented time of his life.

                                                      During the period in question, Heylin said, Dylan’s future wife, Sara Lownds, was pregnant with their first child, Jesse. Dylan was also seen with Joan Baez, Nico and Marianne Faithfull, among others.

                                                      While Dylan was spotted in the company of many women around that time, Heylin said, none of them were preteens or remotely close to that age.

                                                      Attorney Peter Gleason, who is representing the accuser, told HuffPost he’s been getting calls from Dylan fans who keep citing the timeline. However, Gleason said, “we stand by the pleading.”

                                                                              1. The insane lady that claimed Dylan sexually harassed her in 1965 dropped the case in late July after she was caught deleting important text messages and suggested "monetary sanctions" were necessary.

                                                                              2. Dylan is releasing a new book on Nov 1. About The Book

                                                                              The Philosophy of Modern Song is Bob Dylan’s first book of new writing since 2004’s Chronicles: Volume One—and since winning the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2016.

                                                                              Dylan, who began working on the book in 2010, offers his extraordinary insight into the nature of popular music. He writes over sixty essays focusing on songs by other artists, spanning from Stephen Foster to Elvis Costello, and in between ranging from Hank Williams to Nina Simone. He analyzes what he calls the trap of easy rhymes, breaks down how the addition of a single syllable can diminish a song, and even explains how bluegrass relates to heavy metal. These essays are written in Dylan’s unique prose. They are mysterious and mercurial, poignant and profound, and often laugh-out-loud funny. And while they are ostensibly about music, they are really meditations and reflections on the human condition. Running throughout the book are nearly 150 carefully curated photos as well as a series of dream-like riffs that, taken together, resemble an epic poem and add to the work’s transcendence.

                                                                              In 2020, with the release of his outstanding album Rough and Rowdy Ways, Dylan became the first artist to have an album hit the Billboard Top 40 in each decade since the 1960s. The Philosophy of Modern Song contains much of what he has learned about his craft in all those years, and like everything that Dylan does, it is a momentous artistic achievement.

He won the Nobel Prize in Literature and has been awarded the French Legion of Honor, a Pulitzer Prize Special Citation, and the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the country’s highest civilian honor. His memoir, Chronicles: Volume One, spent a year on the New York Times bestseller list.
