BOB DYLAN Released His 18th Album ‘STREET-LEGAL’ 40 Years Ago…

Going back in sonic history looking for memorable albums…

13 June 2018



Released: 15 June 1978 – 40 years ago

ALL MUSIC wrote: “Arriving after the twin peaks of Blood on the Tracks and Desire,
Street Legal seemed like a disappointment upon its 1978 release, and it still seems
a little subpar years after its release. Perhaps that’s because Bob Dylan was uncertain
himself, not just writing a set of songs with no connecting themes, but replacing the
sprawl of the Rolling Thunder Revue with a slick, professional big band, featuring a
horn section and several backing vocalists.”
– Score 3.5/5 – Full review here.

TURN UP THE VOLUME says: An average Bob Dylan is still a great one
compared to countless other singer/songwriters’ work.
