I wasn't aware that "Another Side Of Bob Dylan" isn't a favored album. My first listen to it floored me. The piano of "Black Crow Blues", the lyricism of "Spanish Harlem Incident" and "To Ramona", the humor of "Motorpsycho Nitemare" and of course the greatness of "It Ain't Me Babe" and "My Back Pages". I learned to perform on guitar "All I Really Want To Do" and "I Don't Believe You" 40 years ago.

I consider this an important Dylan album, not just because it's a transition and a lead-up to "Bringing It All Back Home", but for all the reasons you cited.

Thank you.
