Yes, this is one of the least essential Dylan albums, as digale1974 pointed out. I t has been superseded by an allegedly complete 6 CD set in the Bootleg Series, so you need that instead, now. This Basement Tapes album was messed around somewhat by the producer. However, the 2009 remix and remaster is said to have righted those errors, and will probably make an interesting, if inessential, companion to the 6 CD set.

This is one of the least essential Dylan albums. There are a couple of OK tunes but this was never meant to be an album in the first place. I do like the fact that at the time that most of this was recorded in 1967 Dylan had for the second time in his career stopped moving in the direction everyone expected and wanted him to move in. As everyone else was emulating Sgt Pepper or immersing themselves in psychedelia, Dylan made John Wesley Harding which is the antithesis of Sgt pepper, and these recordings were made. He'd had a bad motorbike crash and by now had two kids too, he had changed. In the words from Maggie's Farm "I try my best to be just like I am, but everybody wants you to be just like them"...Ain't that the truth Bob
