Friday Mixtape: Bob Dylan

Now, this one was damn near impossible.  Doing The Beatles was really hard, and they were making music for less than a decade.  Dylan?  Try 50-plus years.

I wanted to include at least some representation from each phase of his career, but as you'll see below, ended up pretending that the years between "Blood on the Tracks" (1975) and "Good As I Been To You" (1992) didn't exist.  That's probably unfair, but you tell me which of these songs to drop in order to throw in "Groom's Still Waiting at the Altar" or "Every Grain of Sand."

Here we go - 87 minutes of Bob Dylan:

The Times They Are-a-Changin'
A Hard Rain's a-Gonna Fall
Maggie's Farm (live version)
Like A Rolling Stone
Ballad of a Thin Man
Visions of Johanna
Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat
Lay Lady Lay
Knockin' on Heaven's Door
Tangled Up in Blue
Tomorrow Night
Two Soldiers
Cold Irons Bound
High Water (For Charley Patton)
Thunder on the Mountain
Scarlet Town
The Lonesome River (with Ralph Stanley)

How does it feel?
