Reaching Back to my 8 track days

This album - Oh my goodness.

I thought it was a Greatest Hits Record for a minute there in the 70s. Bob did some god work after this but in general there was one or two good tunes per album afre this on - Except "Infidel" which is also fantastic for three quarters of the album.

Sorry, got distracted. "Blood on the Tracks" is songwriting perfection IMHO.

I know that there are folks I respect that HATE Dylan (Hi Unblock! ) or who thought he had peaked as an artist in the 60s (Hi Argyl! ) but I believe they are wrong.


Now would usually be when I prove my point with 2 or three perfect choices from the record.

Maybe "Shelter From the Storm" "Your Gonna Make me Lonesome When You go" Or "Idiot Wind"

BUT NO - I cannot because - Youtube keeps this Album behind a PAYWALL. You have to pay to listen to this record - I decline. You assholes already make me watch fucking Trump Commercials and other nonesense.

So pissed off

5. I bought a land yacht Plymouth Fury III

in the late 70s and abandoned it with my brother when I left for boot camp. What a hog that thing was.

The previous owner had installed an aftermarket 8track player and 2 Jensen speakers in the back. I was a musical BADASS with my 8 track- 8 watt monster sound system!

I had a big box of tapes that changed weekly since the tapes only lasted a few weeks. But I had a couple of Dylan tapes CSN CSN&Y Merle Haggard Allman Bros Nazareth Patsy Cline and some Various artist Collection tapes bought in gas stations in southwestern PA and northern West By God VA
