Discovering Bob Dylan

It think it's safe to say that Bob Dylan is pretty unique. From simple folk roots to the voice of a generation and then legend, Bob Dylan has done so much and has a huge back catalogue.

It's a pretty mixed bag though so you have to be very careful where you start.

That 'unique' voice hasn't always hit the right notes and to be blunt, there are some awful albums in his collection. He also went though some pretty dire times in the 1980's. 

That's not necessarily a bad thing though, as he's recorded more classic albums than most acts could ever dream of. There so much to discover, so here's where I suggest you start your musical journey.
