Blonde on blonde. That is the perefect Dylan voice for me. In John Wesley Harding is not very different.
No! Blonde on blonde was a good voice, very stoned and lazy sounding. Almost constipated at times. Maybe a little constipated at times but not really. JWH was more aggressive and melodic. JWH is him transitioning into the Nashville voice. There's not a hint of it on BOB.
Desire / At Budokan. In both albums sound similar to me.
No! Desire was clear and articulate. Almost going back to Highway 61 and BIABH but not really. Budokan/Street Legal was the new, burnt pretzel voice. IT was down hill from there. The last great voice from Bob, IMO, was the Oh Mercy voice. Somehow he rose to the occasion. After that- I'm out.
