4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (45 customer reviews)

Highway 61 Revisited
2.  Highway 61 Revisited by Bob Dylan

Blonde On Blonde

Blood On The Tracks

John Wesley Harding
7.  John Wesley Harding by Bob Dylan

4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (37 customer reviews)

The Times They Are A-Changin'
8.  The Times They Are A-Changin' by Bob Dylan

4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (38 customer reviews)

Another Side Of Bob Dylan
9.  Another Side Of Bob Dylan by Bob Dylan

4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (22 customer reviews)

Oh Mercy
10.  Oh Mercy by Bob Dylan

4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (38 customer reviews)

Time Out of Mind
11.  Time Out of Mind by Bob Dylan

4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (55 customer reviews)

Love And Theft
12.  Love And Theft by Bob Dylan
The list author says:
  "Steeped in Americana, bluegrass, swing, delta & hard edged blues, this album is hugely entertaining. Lyrically & musically rich & derivative, as the title suggests, for all the right reasons."
£4.19   Used & New from: £2.08
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (59 customer reviews)

Modern Times
13.  Modern Times by Bob Dylan
The list author says:
  "A close relation to Love & Theft which delivers yet again. Ginsberg once observed that Dylan had become “identical with his breath” in the 60’s – witness this again on the majestic ‘Ain’t Talkin’."
£9.99   Used & New from: £1.03
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (90 customer reviews)

Nashville Skyline
14.  Nashville Skyline by Bob Dylan
The list author says:
  "27mins of pure joyful country-a strong argument for less is more! Not political enough for critics/fans at the time but Dylan proves most beautifully that he was a ‘Song & Dance Man’ first & foremost."
£5.00   Used & New from: £2.44
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (42 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Pat Garrett & Billy The Kid
15.  Pat Garrett & Billy The Kid by Bob Dylan
The list author says:
  "A gorgeous meditative soundtrack to Peckinpah’s motion picture of the same name. The tambourine in the blissful opening theme sets the pace beautifully like crickets chirping across Frontier America."

4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (18 customer reviews)
