Shot Of Love by Bob Dylan
Released: Aug 1981
Label: Columbia
The last of Dylan's three Born Again albums, Shot of Love features fewer odes to Jesus and fire and brimstone, and even includes a song celebrating Lenny Bruce, and one about a woman, "Heart of Mine." As with his other religious albums, it's the conviction with which he sings and his insightful use of both Old and New Testament passages that make the record much more than a detour in his career. Plus, the band behind him bumps in all the right places and there is only the barest hint of '80s studio slickness. Shot of Love is more proof that Dylan doesn't have any bad records.
