For me.... First one I bought on day of release was John Wesley Harding. Absolutely bowled over. Next.... Nashville Skyline. Initial reaction from me and my friends.... "huh?" Next.... New Morning. Thought, it was ok, pretty good. "If Dogs Run Free" was fun. Then... Planet Waves. Again, ok, pretty good. "Forever Young" was immediately memorable. Next.... Blood On The Tracks. Initial reaction... "well this is a step in the right direction." Time has added greatly to its cachet. My wife loved "Idiot Wind," which is still my least favorite song on the record. Then.... Desire. Loved loved loved it right off the bat. Except for "Joey." Yuk! And then.... Street Legal. Didn't know what to make heads or tails of that bad boy. Today it's the Dylan album most often in my rotation. But back then... horns? backup singers? WTF? Skip waaayyy ahead to Love and Theft. Very disappointing I thought, with the exception of "Mississippi," a classic number. Then for some reason I got sucked into buying The Next Two Releases (sorry can't remember their names). Underwhelmed to say the least.... Thus ended my days of Buying Dylan Releases on first day of release. Thank you for listening.
