    Those are my favorite, too, and for the same reasons. No bass player, on any album, funk or jazz or otherwise, drives the bus home like McCoy does on JWH.

    There's probably 10 more verses to " Desolation Row" that didn't make the cut!
    Just like "Chimes of Freedom" ( song structure) each verse>chorus is a whole song!
    Bob is something else!

    So much Bob, it's hard to pick any one; I do greatly enjoy the later era 4-pack run having lots of rollicking roadhouse blues in Time Out of Mind, Modern Times, Together Through Life and Tempest ... this vid of Thunder on the Mountain from Modern Times has a great collage of film clips from throughout his career, a fun watch!

    There's been songs through every phase of his career that I've really liked a lot, and most of them have popped up in this thread (did I miss "Gotta Serve Somebody"?)

    I've always liked this one too.

    I was looking over what I have in my library of Dylan’s last week and thought of this. It arrived today.

    I bought it when it first came out but traded it later. I came to Dylan late and this was my introduction. It’s a great compilation. And the booklet makes for good reading.

    I agree, although I think he saw through the phoniness of a lot of that movement (just as some people are seeing through the phony self-righteousness and hypocrisy of the current "woke" movement). I have always admired Dylan for deciding not to be a mouthpiece for a lot of single-issue people on the sidelines. I think he could just sense that his music (and his whole career) could be co-opted if he didn't watch out. So to remain independent - as he has always wanted to be - he had to completely walk away from the early folk crowd.

    I wish more people would wake up too, but I can't stand to see people being shamed, coerced and canceled into supporting something in a specific way. It's not helpful - it's divisive.

    Can't possibly pick a Dylan song as my "favorite", but I've always loved this:

    Too many great ones through all of his various phases, and that’s just what made it to official releases. There are countless bootlegs and alternate takes out there that should have made it to a release.

    Most folks gloss over Dylan’s 80’s works I’ll add: I and I, Most of the Time, Man in the Long Black Coat, and Emotionally Yours.
