GUEST,Gern Various Artist doing Dylan's Gospel (48) RE: Various Artist doing Dylan's Gospel 04 Apr 03

Talk about thread drift. Back to the question, I've been a Dylan fan since '63, although often with some chagrin and no antidote to people who think he stinks. I have not appreciated every turn of his career, but who could? Nonetheless, I think his 'gospel' albums were superior efforts. Although the lyrics were polemic and not to my orientation, he obviously was studying his scripture. SAVED is full of specific references and some thoughtful comment on this most overdiscussed theme. But, musically, these albums are among his best. I saw the SERVE SOMEBODY tour and dug the chorus work and some brilliant littly guy on melodic lead guitar who turned out to be Mark Knopfler. Those who can get by his stridency should revisit these albums, as well as SHOT OF LOVE.
