Just realized I don't have this album.
Some people regard it as his best
That ain't right - you have to have that one if you like Dylan.
I just ordered a CD from Amazon and am listening to the album now.
Oddly enough I gave this one several tries. I heard it was one of the best but I just couldn't get into it. Same with Blonde on Blonde.
I always liked his first albums the best as a youngster, Bob Dylan and The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan.
Now that I'm a bit older I really like Blood on the Tracks and Blonde on Blonde is my favorite. The Old Crow Medicine Show live album of Blonde on Blonde is also fantastic.
I'm one of those folks...…
Also, you reminded me I printed off the chords to this song a while back and I dug 'em up and have been puttering around. thanks
Gonna listen it right now on my way to work , Deffo one of his best works !
I don't have this and always have heard good things about it. Going to get it. And, Blonde in Blonde is my favorite.

My favorite Dylan album, hands down. Sounds even better around 2 a.m. on the back porch. If you're really into it, and him, there are lots of interesting outtakes and alternative takes available from those sessions. Different melodies, different lyrics, different instrumentation.
I know I'm not playing the songs in the correct open (E?) tuning Dylan may used...
but I love this album and over the last few years ( along with many other earlier Dylan tunes) ' ear taught ' myself the following Blood on The Tracks songs.
(just like to play the guitar parts ( and down load lyrics, if I ever actually iSING the songs!)
Tangled Up in Blue- A
Buckets of Rain- E
Simple Twist of Fate-E
Idiot Wind- G
You're a Big Girl Now- G
Somewhere on You Tube there is a lesson for playing Simple Twist of Fate in an open tuning. I learned it at one point, but can't remember it now.
When I was around 14 my friends and I would stack Blonde on Blonde and The Byrds 5D on the record changer and play them over and over again. I still remember when Blood on the Tracks came out. We bought it right away and listened to it almost as much as Blonde on Blonde. It was like Dylan was back to form again after he did all of the country albums.
There were 5 songs from BOTT that Dylan recorded in New York in open tuning that were not on the album but are available on the official bootleg series vows 1 to 3, Biograph etc., plus the new one, which has every track recorded for BOTT. It’s called More Blood, More Tracks.
the chords for those tunes in open tuning can be found on the dylanchords.info site.
My favorite album of all time
