Yes, Dylan and the Dead both have stellar archival programs.

While some say that one Stones show is too similar to another to warrant multiple releases from a single tour, a la the Grateful Dead, I think one could cherry pick some great shows from each year that would keep the rabid fan satisfied.

Dylan will release the next volume of his famous 'Bootleg Series' in late January. It will be a 10LP/5CD box and it features the Time Out of Mind Sessions.
There will be a new mix of the original albums as well as live tracks recorded between 1998-2001. Most likely the three CDs will feature alternates and outtakes.

see:

Hallelujah. thumbs up

So as I make my way thru the enormous catalog of Mr. Zimmerman, so far my absolute favorite album is Bringing It All Back Home, and my new favorite song is Love Minus Zero. Wow. Stellar all around.

Hard to beat that album!

Outside of the well-known elite Dylan albums (BIABH, BOTT, Hwy 61, Blonde on Blonde), I especially enjoy Nashville Skyline, New Morning, Planet Waves (w/ The Band), Basement Tapes (w/ The Band), Bob Dylan, Another Side of Bob Dylan, Time Out of Mind, and Infidels.

There are more, but those are my standouts. Let me know what you think.

I don't really know what's elite and what's not. I do know that Highway 61 and Blood on the Tracks are supposed to be masterpieces. I started with Blood because my 18yo son loves it. To me, it was meh. He was floored LOL. Then I went back to the beginning, and I've been going in order chronologically. Didn't care for his debut, but Freewheelin' was great!! As are Another Side and Highway 61. Good I'd say are Blonde and Times A-Changing. Nashville was Decent. On Self-Portrait now, and it can't be over fast enough!

For framework......prior to this undertaking, the only Dylan that I have in my vast collection are Biograph, the 30th Anniversary concert cd (more for who else is on it), and some of his albums with Mick T - not even sure I have them all. None of these items are revisited often, and none of it is on my iPod.... So really I am probably about as close to a Virgin Dylan listener as one could be as a Rock Dude LOL

For one thing they don't have to put out entire concerts. You could do a Live Rarities album easily. Songs rarely played. They don't have to be in any chronological order.

Bringing It All Back Home is the album that turned me onto Dylan. I knew of his earlier albums but they did nada for me when people played them. The late Rick Nelson said when he heard BIABH it turned him completely around in terms of the music he wanted to play. Nelson and The Stone Canyon Band did some very good covers of Dylan songs. The last three songs on BIABH are pure poetry to my ears. It's All Over Now Baby Blue remains my all time fave Dylan song. There are so many Dylan songs that are worth finding, his versions and others. If you aren't already aware of it there's a Dylan site worth checking out regarding his Bobness - www.expectingrain.com

I've seen some pics and videos and it looks like a wonderful book. I began reading it (on a pdf file) and I'm liking it so far. In some parts I read with Bob's voice in my head, like in his Theme Time Radio Hour shows.

I still have to listen to a lot of stuff from his immense catalogue.
For the moment i'm madly in love with 'Blood on the Tracks' and my favourite songs are 'Tangled Up in Blue' and 'Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts'.
Then i'm addicted to these terrific live version of "It's all right ma.."

To me BLOOD ON THE TRACKS is one of the strongest and most effective albums ever done. But I don't listen that very often (unlike many other Dylan albums). It is so strong, deep and dark, and going through such painful, nasty, awful, bitter emotions that one needs to have a certain mindset to handle it. And I don't have that that often, thankfully. It is not like great blues music that starts from a pain, but turns that into a joy, the funerals into fiestas. Dylan offers no way out, but just directs us deeper in the pain. To feel it plain and with no compromise. It's like what Nietzsche once said, 'what is not written with blood, is not written at all'.

Probably some other Dylan albums are a bit like that - OH MERCY, TIME OUT OF MIND, the latest - but I think none of them go so deep and thoroughly into painful, mixed human feelings as BLOOD does.

It is an unique masterpiece but I understand very well what Dylan means by saying that he can't understand why anyone can 'like' that album.

But I guess it was the last nail in the coffin when I get to know the album to realize that 'this dude is in the class of its own as an artist as far as pop music goes'.

I like Self Portrait too. I understand why some don't, but I've always found it to be a very enjoyable listen. Definitely not a concept album, but a quirky quilt.

Regarding "You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go" brought to mind a great cover of the song by Miley Cyrus. This woman knows how to do country. Check out her "The Backyard Sessions" on utoob. Here's her cover of "You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome".

I'm much more a Dylan than an Stones fan… but I have to admit that 'More Blood More Tracks' is the one of the rather boring Bootleg Series deluxe releases (not as boring as 'Another Self Portrait, of course). Reasons are: 1. 'More Blood' features no new original Dylan songs, 2. a hell lot of the songs on this release have already been officially released on BS 1-3 and on 'Biograph', 3. The 'Blood On The Tracks' session have already been widely bootlegged before, 4. When Dylan recorded 'Blood on the Tracks' he had a more or less clear idea what he wanted (although he changed his mind and rerecorded quite a few songs). Unlike in the 60s he didn't come with rather loose ideas to the sessions and write/finish the songs and lyrics in the studio
(please don't tell my friends on Expecting Rain what I wrote here…winking smiley )

I should be able to relate to it then, having been blindsided with a 2nd divorce this year, and finding myself aimlessly wandering for months in some of my darkest of places. Alas, the whole damn thing just didn't resonate with me.

BOTT is clearly a dark album, but for me, Time Out of Mind is even darker. Bone-chilling.

Great thoughts, Doxa. BOTT is so powerful and relatable. I can understand why Bob doesn't like revisiting the feelings written there, though. It's still my favorite album of Bob's. It hurts so good.

I totally agree, NB. TOOM is a different kind of masterpiece. Written with the wisdom of decades of experience. Just think "It's not dark yet, but it's getting there" was written 25 years ago now and Bob still marches on. It's simply amazing.

I have to put in a vote for "Love and Theft" as THE ultimate late era Dylan record. That album is like a juke box of musical styles from the 20th century, and while the different styles could create a jarring effect, the production gives it a tremendously clear and unified sound. Worth a listen.

BOTT is clearly a dark album, but for me, Time Out of Mind is even darker. Bone-chilling.

Agreed.

While Blood is indeed a dark masterpiece, Time Out of Mind will always be the one for me.

Blood on the Tracks was released when I was just 12 years old, and I didn't have that life experience to fully relate to it until much later.
Time Out of Mind on the other hand was released when I had just turned 34, and I happened to be in the midst of a turbulent relationship that ultimately dissolved.
That album spoke volumes to me, and still does. It's a tough one on many levels, but it's art at it's finest, and probably my all time favorite album by anyone for a variety of reasons.
When I revisit it today I'm right back there again...love sick...walking down that dirt road until my eyes begin to bleed...standing in the doorway crying with blues wrapped around my head...
still a million miles away...trying to get to heaven...and on and on...ultimately realizing my hearts in the highlands at the break of day, over the hills and far away....

Excellent choice. The vibe is a total 180 from TOOM, but very enjoyable. Maybe my favorite Dylan album of the new millennium.
