Bob Dylan back in spotlight

Filed under: Music News — rat September 6, 2006 @ 11:15 pm

Bob Dylan‘s new album, Modern Times, claims the top spot on this week’s SoundScan sales charts, making it his first #1 album since 1976’s Desire. It is also his best sales week and highest-charting record since Nielsen SoundScan started keeping track of such numbers in 1991, according to Billboard. Modern Times sold approximately 192,000 copies in its first week on-sale in the States and debuted in the top three in many other countries around the world. This makes him the oldest person to ever release a disc at #1 !bob dylan

Bob Dylan has been recording since the year I was born (1962) proof seen here with such hits as “Blowin` in The Wind”, “Corrina Corrina”, “Delia”, “House of the risin’ Sun”, “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door”, “Lay Lady Lay”, “Little Maggie”, “Maggie’s Farm”, “Mr. Tambourine Man”, “Precious Memories”,”Sittin’ on Top of The World”, just to name a very few. See complete collection here. Those songs alone make him a legend in his own time and he has my respect and I am glad to see him back in the spotlight again, perhaps he can one day record from the grave like a few other of my favorite legends. Way to go Bob !
