Studio, live, bootleg are all eligible.

1. Blonde on Blonde
2. Bootleg Series 4 - Live at "Royal Albert Hall"
3. Blood on the Tracks
4. Bootleg Series 5 - Rolling Thunder Review
5. Tempest

I had to leave some great albums off this list. #5 could easily change depending on my mood!

In some order I'll go with:

Bringing It All Back Home
Blonde on Blonde
Highway 61 Revisited
Time Out of Mind
Love and Theft

I truly think Dylan has 10 or 11 studio albums that are pretty much perfect, 10 out of 10 albums.

Lost on the River by The New Basement Tapes (Elvis Costello, Rhiannon
Giddens, Taylor Goldsmith, Jim James and Marcus Mumford). Produced by T
Bone Burnett, this is an album of songs based on newly (as of 2014)
discovered Bob Dylan lyrics written in 1967 where the original "The Basement
Tapes" took place.    These artists were given the lyrics and they collaborated
to create some awesome music. Seriously one of my favorite albums from the
last 10 years.

The title track by Rhiannon Giddens just gives me chills.

Personally, I would add Good As I Been to
You (been listening to it the last couple
of days!). Probably Tempest as well.

I've been listening to Good As I Been to You lately too. Absolutely adore "Hard Times" (but I prefer it live).

The thing about Dylan's albums is that there's probably not one that I wouldn't change a few tracks for alternate takes or songs. And, even when he got the best studio take for the right song, sometimes I prefer it live.

In no particular order:

Time Out of Mind
Blonde On Blonde
MTV Unplugged, just for the live versions of Dignity and Desolation Row.
Bringing It All Back Home
Empire Burlesque (for it's flaws, this one hit me at just the right time)

Dylan's UNPLUGGED is criminally underrated.  One of my very favorite live albums by any artist.

I didn't want to start a new thread, but for those that have heard it, what did you think of Dylan's last two offerings - Shadows in the Night and Fallen Angels? While I think Dylan sounded great on both, I just don't care that much for the choice of Sinatra covers. Maybe I just need to listen to them more...

They're fun.  Obviously I'd take an album of all-new material over an album of standards but I'm happy with just about anything Bob is willing to give us.  They prove he really can sing too!

Speaking of what Bob's willing to give us...I ordered the 36 disc box set the and the morning it officially went on sale (11/11) it was back-ordered already through Amazon!  ARGH!!!!

I like those Sinatra albums too, but then I like those songs. And yes, His Bobness certainly can sing.

Unfortunately, I can't afford the 1966 box so soon. Hopefully next year!

I'll probably pass on the '66 box, and
will pick up the real Albert Hall Concert.
In a similar vein, I would like to have
the Pink Floyd Early Years box, but the
$500 price tag will prohibit it's
purchase.
