I have the house to myself this weekend, so am planning to enjoy some drinks while listening to some magic sounds.

What pairings of albums and alcohol do you recommend?

I've listened to The Basement Tapes ('75 release) while drinking rum so many times that I almost feel a contact buzz when listening to it at the grocery store with headphones! Does anybody else have distinct memories of drunkenness paired with a specific Dylan song, or is it just me? There's a roster of songs that I immediately can flash back to a moment of inebriation experienced while listening to that song in the past.

I think OP wanted specific alcohol/album pairings, not just what song is good with alcohol (isn't every song?)

Another one I've enjoyed recently is Desire and some nice cold gin. If your throat doesn't feel hotter than the violins in Black Diamond Bay, you're not drinking enough!

Time Out of Mind--Bordeaux
Street Legal--Gin
Blonde on Blonde--Absinthe
Hard Rain--Bourbon. Dickel or Beam. Lots of It.
Nashville Skyline--Beer
Desire--Rum
Saved--Kool Aid spiked with moonshine
Under the Red Sky--Long Island Iced Tea

Those are my suggestions, but you might be better off looking to Bob for clues:

Highway 61 Revisted--Burgundy, then the harder stuff.
Blonde on Blonde--Railroad Gin
Blood on the Tracks--A beer in a strip club.
Tempest--Whisky and Gin, with a morphine chaser.
etc.

I got really drunk and listened to 'Black Diamond Bay' on repeat last night so that's something. Lager, Buckfast.

Dylan is marijuana music. You can drink, but without cannabis you won't get the full effect.

No alcohol for me while listening to Bob, just water. Or if its a hot day, maybe iced tea or lemonade. It is best to have one's faculties fully engaged, uninhibited or influenced by anything to fully appreciate every note and vocal nuance when listening to, for example, Knocked Out Loaded or Christmas In the Heart.

At least, that's how I see it...

Correct. Bob Dylan was right when he told us "everybody must get stoned". Though alcohol is indeed "the nectar of the gods", it's a much heavier, potentially deadly and actually addictive drug. Alcohol is not for the lightweights - the risks are deep. Pot is life enhancing while alcohol dulls life.

However, I'm sure Bob is well aware of the huge windfall George Clooney just had in selling his Tequila company, "Casamigo, for 3/4 of a billion dollars. And Sammy Hagar Sold Cabo Wabo Tequila for 80 million dollars. The whiskey market is hot right now, but I don't think it is on fire like Tequila.

Always appreciated Pat Garrett with coffee on a weekend morn if ever home.
Maybe one could throw in some Bailey's and call it a pairing?
