  •  It's astounding, looking back over 50 years of Bob (2+ / 0-)

    how many fine albums and classic songs he's come up with. But my two favorite peaks of his are Bringing it All Back Home/Highway 61 Revisited/Blonde on Blonde and, a decade later, Blood on the Tracks/Desire/Street Legal. In both periods he was really feeling his oats, and stretching out in a few longer songs on each album. Desire has such fine songs on it. Hurricane was his most socially/politically engaged song since he'd crashed his motorbike and retreated from society a decade before.
