I was at my local bar the other night and someone asked me if I were ever to be stranded on a deserted island and could only bring five Bob Dylan albums with me on my iPhone, which ones would I bring?
I couldn’t answer him right away, and not because I had already had a good buzz after drinking four bottles of Miller Lite (note: I’m a lightweight), I had to think about that for a while because I really love Bob Dylan. Wait, let me rephrase that, I REALLY LOVE BOB DYLAN! For anyone even remotely aware of American pop culture over the past 40 years, it would be tough to miss the direct impact and lasting influence of Dylan’s songs. I needed time to get back in touch with ALL things B-O-B!
So after spending a WHOLE week revisiting all my Dylan albums in iTunes, I compiled these 5 as the very ones I’d like to have with me if I were stranded on a deserted island. And with this list I hope I can introduce the genius of Dylan to people walking around now who’ve never heard of the guy, or have no awareness of him beyond simple name recognition.
