Today I had a meeting with my english mate-teachers and time was running real slow....real slow.....
:)
....but I happened to have my RS Special Collector Bob Dylan copy with me, so I did this:

I took the 100dylan songs list and I calculated what is the ultimate chart of Dylan albums and of Dylan track per album if one follows those numbers strictly.
In other words, I assigned a score of 100 points to song number 1, 99 to song number 2.....till 1 point to song number 100.
That's what I came up with:

LIST OF DYLAN ALBUMS (songs per album in the top 100)

1 - Blonde (13 songs in the top 100)

2 - Blood (10 songs)

3 - H61  (8)

4 - Basement
     Another
     Bringing (7)

7 - Freewheelin
     Desire (6)

9 - Times (5)

10- Planet (4)

11 - JWH 

      Infidels

      Nashville

      TooM
       Street (3)

 

16 - Shot
       Morning

       Mercy  (2)

 

19  - LAT

       Garrett

       Slow Train

       Empire

       Modern

       Tempest (1 song)

 

 

Then, assigning (as I said) 100-1 points to any song from number 1 to 100, I calculated how many points any single album scores.
Which is a more thorough calculation, as it takes into account chart position, stating that, for example, an album containing song#1 is better than an album containing thrre songs in the top 100 but placed at n.98-99-100.

 

That is the list of the albums per points

 

1 - Blonde 673

2 - H61     595

3 - Blood   478

4 - Bringin  459

5 - Tapes   418

6 - Freewh  408

7 - Another 360

8 - Times    280

9 - Desire    273

10- Infidels  163

11- Nashville 160

12- JWH      159

13- Planet    129

14- TooM     108

15- Shot      102

16- LAT         80

17- Pat Garr    76

18- Morning    63

19 - Slow       58

20- Mercy       34

21- Empire      21

22- Modern     18

23- Street       17

24- Tempest     8

 

 

 

What to add?

Personally, I think this is one of the most balanced lists I've ever seen.
Not too much ModBob, not only 60s Bob either.
I can't understand how they can have ignored:
Black Coat, Workingman's and the Jack Of Hearts.
And, for the albums, I wouldn't have excluded Under The Red Sky.
