    "Lay Lady Lay". I almost chose "I Threw It All Away" but my favorite version is the intense live performance on "Hard Rain".

    What a beautiful album. I chose the last track, because it is so fitting as a last track of an album.

    LLL, all the way!
     
  7. This was a somewhat tough decide, but I ended up going with "Tonight I'll Be Staying Here With You". This was one of the first Dylan acetates I added to my collection... A true beauty- 10" Columbia label with "Drifters Escape" on the other side! Rare, as most 10" lacquers are one-sided generally. Just a coincidence, I would pick the song either way.

    Loved NS then, love it now. NS appeared as a breath of fresh air in 1969, free of the excess of the whole "Woodstock Nation' and 'Flower Power' crap.
    Named by Rolling Stone as Album of the Year for 1969 (with Let it Bleed).

    Like all the tracks, but picked the Cash duet.

    "Nashville Skyline" is my all-time favorite album by Dylan and that is simply because I loved his voice on this one and GOD how I wish that he would have stuck with it!

    I love every song on this album for different reasons, but the one that has always stood way out for me is "One More Night", as it is such a departure from the usual Dylan type of song and it is somewhat "commercial". The next best track for me is "Tonight I'll Be Staying Here With You", followed quickly by "Tell Me That It Isn't True".

    Tonight I'll be stayin here with you. I think it's one of bobs best vocals ever. Love the album as a whole though and could've picked country pie or tell me it isn't true

    Sorry Dave Gilmour's Cat for making an identical poll of your Nashville Skyline Poll thread that you made, my bad. It was unintentional. Love this album and your thread. I picked the entire album. I had Hoffman Gorts close (delete) my Skyline thread.

    Hope your thread goes on for a long time, like 10,000+ comments. Hey we could all dream. :edthumbs:

    Tonight I'll Be Staying Here with You is my fave Dylan tune, this and New Morning are great underrated records.

    Lay Lady Lay followed by I Threw It All Away.

    One of my favorite Dylan albums.

    Thanks! That's kind. I hoped they could be merged rather than anything being deleted!

    It's a wonderful album, for sure. It's given me a lot of pleasure over the years.
