Bob Dylan, Knocked Out Loaded (1986)
Pretty sure this is the worst Bob Dylan album. I have them all – and I’ve found more to enjoy on Down In The Groove (released next; so clearly a rut – The Travelling Wilburys pretty much saved him). But it’s better to have this on vinyl than CD – because then you can play the one track that everyone raves about from this album – side two, track one. And you can just bask in that – or even let the other two shitty/average songs that follow play on after. But there’s no need to inflict side one on yourself or anyone. Bob was struggling here. Something fierce.
Sample Track: Brownsville Girl
