Some of Bob's finest country-tinged moments are here, especially "Early Morning Rain," which is I agree is simply delicious.

You can't blame him for making this. It's a shame it was the beginning of a long gradual decline.


Aw, c'mon, "long gradual decline"? What about the massive peaks that punctuate the decline: Blood on the Tracks and Street Legal for starters? Even Planet Waves has two or three songs that blow away anything on Self Portrait.

Yes, I was much too harsh. "Desire" & "Street Legal" are stonkers.

"Slow Train Coming" onwards marks the decline. ("Infidels" notwithstanding).
