Ten essential albums of the 1960s
3. Bob Dylan - Blonde on Blonde
Within the span of fifteen months, Bob Dylan would record three albums (Bringing It All Back Home, Highway 61 Revisited and Blonde on Blonde) that would forever alter the path of rock music. Combined with a grueling tour schedule, mounting pressure from the burgeoning counter-culture, and enough amphetamines to kill a brontosaurus, this creative fever nearly killed Dylan. His martyrdom was inevitably our reward, leaving us not only with endless documentary fodder, but with inspired tracks like "I Want You," "Just Like a Woman" and "Sad-Eyed Lady of the Lowlands."
