Bob Dylan – Desire VG+/VG+

$40.00

Desire¬†is the seventeenth studio album by American singer-songwriter Bob Dylan, released on January 5, 1976, through Columbia Records. It is one of Dylan’s most collaborative efforts, featuring the same caravan of musicians as the acclaimed Rolling Thunder Revue tours the previous year (later documented on¬†The Bootleg Series Vol. 5). Many of the songs also featured backing vocals by Emmylou Harris and Ronee Blakley. Most of the album was co-written by Jacques Levy, and is composed of lengthy story-songs, two of which quickly generated controversy: the 11-minute-long “Joey”, which is seen as glorifying the violent gangster “Crazy Joey” Gallo, and “Hurricane”, the opening track that tells a passionate account of the murder case against boxer Rubin Carter, whom the song asserts was framed. Carter was released in 1985, after a judge overturned his conviction on appeal.

A well-received follow-up to¬†Blood on the Tracks,¬†Desire¬†reached¬†No.‚ÄČ1¬†on the¬†Billboard¬†Pop Albums chart for five weeks, becoming one of Dylan’s bestselling studio albums, and was certified double Platinum; the album reached¬†No.‚ÄČ3¬†in the UK. It claimed the¬†No.‚ÄČ1¬†slot on NME Album of the Year.¬†Rolling Stone¬†named¬†Desire¬†No.‚ÄČ174¬†on its list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. It was voted number 761 in the third edition of Colin Larkin’s¬†All Time Top 1000 Albums¬†(2000).
