Hello. I did the same poll for Slow Train Coming, so I thought I should do the same for other two gospel era albums.

Now, what do you think is the top three tracks on the album Saved? Look forward to seeing how you think.

As for me, I'm not really familiar with Saved, so I can't say which the best songs are, but for me Saved sounded pretty great and appealing.

Pressing On

Covenant Woman a strong contender

What Can I Do For You

In The Garden

Saved

I found the choice quite difficult. The standard of these songs is far higher than many give them credit for. I hope that their live renditions on the box-set will reveal this to the sceptics.

What Can I Do For You
Solid Rock
In The Garden

Personally, I love Saved. It's much better than the credit it's given.

It took many years before I dived into Saved, mostly because everybody kept telling me how bad it is. When I finally gave it a chance, I found it to be a really nice collection of songs. Lately it feels like it has started to get the reputation it deserves. Not a masterpiece, but a well crafted album.

A Satisfied Mind, Saved, and I guess What Can I Do For You?


To show how far this album is down the pecking order though. None of these 3 songs would be among Dylan's Top 200.

Normally I donĀ“t have much trouble doing this, but I do with Saved. I like pretty much all the songs equally

An impossible poll, this is. Seven indispensable songs and we're supposed reduce the list to our favorite three?

I chose:

What Can I Do for You
Solid Rock
In the Garden


But mainly because those are the ones I play on my guitar the most.

Covenant Woman is legitimately a great song, which is rare on an album full of just okay ones, ignoring Pressing On--which I still think isn't a great song considering, but it is noteworthy and passionate.

My list too. WCIDFY is the prize of the album. PO is good, could possibly put CW in it's place if we only pick three. SR has some good lines here and there with a credible pass at 'born again' fervent to the music.

Are you ready?

This list might look differently tomorrow. All the songs on this album are on a equally high level.

No offense intended and I hope you don't mind, WrittenInMySoul, but I edited your post to correct it.

No favorite here either. Someone I respect convinced me to re-listen to Saved a couple of years ago. It was a struggle. It's front-to-back terrible. The album has no redeeming qualities other than it being necessary for obsessives to own to complete the collection.

My feeling is that if someone asked me (again) for a good Bob album to listen to, I would never mention Saved. It's not a good Bob album, a good Christian rock album, a good Gospel album, a good Rock album. It's just NOT GOOD. The best part about it is it's relative brevity.

Stop beating around the bushes, Harry. Do you like Saved or not?

A Bob Dylan album about salvation has no redeeming qualities...


You didn't really say that, did you?

Perhaps you should try them again while singing along, joyously at the top of your lungs so that you can feel yourself lifted to the inner sanctum of heaven itself... Maybe then you'll appreciate Saved.

And while you're listening to it, remind yourself that if Dylan was right when he wrote these songs, Trump and his minions will spend eternity in hell. If that doesn't bring a smile to your face, nothing will.

Hell is listening to SAVED.

Have to agree--it's just a life-sapping experience listening to Saved.
