Playlist: The Very Best Of Bob Dylan '80s

Playlist: The Very Best Of Bob Dylan '80s by Bob Dylan
Released: Jul 2012
Label: Columbia/Legacy
Let's face it: the '80s was a strange decade for Dylan. It began with yet more sacred music (Saved), closed with a stunner (Oh Mercy) and boasted titles in between that range from very good (Infidels, Empire Burlesque) to utterly mediocre (Knocked Out Loaded). This collection does a fine job of spotlighting the best material from all these records, but what makes it a truly interesting listen is the inclusion of several outtakes and alternate versions. Probably the best is "Blind Willie McTell." For reasons that have never been fully explained, Dylan left this stunning ballad off Infidels.
