    Hard one, but I'll say Isis just because I'm in the mood for it.

    Completely stumped by this. Of all the albums I have known and loved, this is best swallowed whole.

    Another album of equal favourites on an under-rated album.
    I selected as a favourite "One More Cup of Coffee", but could have been "Isis".
    Most enjoyable on the album would be "Mozambique" and "Black Diamond Bay" - great toe-tappers.
    It's unfortunate that "Abandoned Love" wasn't recorded for the record.

    And here is what the album looks like:

    Hard to choose.
    I went with Sara, because it's an awesome closer.
    No weak track on that record.

    My favorite SONG here is "Isis," but I'm not wild about the performance on the LP. (The live version that starts with the "This is for Leonard...." comments just nails it, I think.) My favorite track, as it appears here, is probably "Oh, Sister." Too bad Rita May didn't make the cut, as that song's a total hoot, IMO.

    Voted for "Sara", a great album that's aged well.

    Both "Rita May" and "Abandoned Love" should have been on there, but hey, it's a Dylan album! My favourite track is "One More Cup of Coffee followed by "Isis".

    was there no vinyl reissue of this in past few years?

    When In Rome It's far from being all over...

    Great atmospheric sounding album! I love all of them, that's for sure. Hurricane for it's sheer tour de force storytelling and both Joey and Isis for their dramatic almost cinematic feel, there's many strong contenders for me on this album but the one I always comeback to and find myself absent-mindedly humming is 'Black Diamond Bay'. Love the song writing and imagery on this one in particular, especially the way it all turns around at the end from being neck-deep in the turmoil and panic to ol' Bob just watching '.. another hard luck story' on the news on his TV. I love it! In fact, once again thanks to these threads, I'm off to listen to it!

    Yeah. From the album, I had to go with Hurricane but that live version of Isis you mention takes the cake.

    "Sara" is his most naked song, and the image of him singing it to her through the control room glass, eyes locked on hers, is one of the most striking in his career.

    I voted for "Coffee" though. Because violin. And Emmylou.

    Isis, though One More Cup of Coffee and Sara are right on its heels.

    Isis because it's just a great freaking track. Love em all though

    Isis is so good, and live versions of it are fantastic. Sara is also a favorite--Stayin' up for days in the Chelsea Hotel writing sad eyed lady of the lowlands for you.....

    But the entire album is great.

  24. Very consistent album, apart from "Mozambique" or "Black Diamond Bay" I could pick anything really. Today it's "Sara", a beautiful closer.
