Bob Dylan - Tangled Up In Blue: Comeback Album

In 1975, Dylan recorded a self-produced album titled Blood on the Tracks. It was the first album of his that he'd produced. He went back to his home state of Minnesota to record it. It is often considered as good as any of his other albums from any period. It includes the songs Tangled up in Blue, Idiot Wind, and Shelter From the Storm. After Blood On the Tracks, he came out with an album called Desire which opened with the song Hurricane. It was arguably a drop from Blood On the Tracks and the albums after that progressively got less popular.

In late 1966, just after Bob Dylan's European tour, Bob Dylan returned and in a matter of weeks got in a motorcycle accident. This accident affected his career greatly. He lived a much more quiet lifestyle and his music also got much quieter. He went back to his roots and made a couple more country-like albums (John Wesley Harding, and Nashville Skyline). They were much less critically acclaimed. The songs were shorter and less deep.

Bob Dylan Like a Rolling Stone 1966 live

At this point, Bob Dylan was at one of the many heights of his career. He had been using drugs and touring around the world. He had gained many fans because of going electric but also lost a lot. His previous fans liked that he was a folk revival artist and when he went electric they thought that he had gotten too "poppy". This period is often considered his prime because he came out with 3 of his best records (Bringing it All Back Home, Highway 61, and Blonde on Blonde).
