Choosing a Bob Dylan album was difficult, but Blood On The Tracks won the battle; his 1975 masterpiece was too good to deny. For one thing, it kicks off with one of my all time favorite songs of his, Tangled Up In Blue. After that, it just cascades through all of these emotional peaks and valleys, a study of love and relationships going bad, but absolutely compelling. Dylan is of course widely recognized as one of the greatest songwriters of the modern era, and this project was full of treasures, like Idiot Wind, Buckets Of Rain, Simple Twist Of Fate, and the sublime You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go.
