None. Has Dylan made history as an interpreter? Hardly.
As a songwriter & performer of his music? Yes & yes

Obviously Christmas in the Heart II, that goes without saying, but other than that!

Maybe an unpopular opinion, but I would be thrilled if Dylan followed through with his notion of doing an album of “religious songs” that he mentioned in his Tempest interview. Something along the line’s of Johnny Cash’s “My Mother’s Hymbook.” Dylan has expressed his love for these songs, even recently (his Music Cares speech for instance). Songs like those he’s mentioned—A Closer Walk With Thee, Rock of Ages, etc.

I agree. All the greats have done such.

Seems like the only sensible way forward to go, new originals would be nice but if there's nothing in the can then new interpretations of some of the classics he still plays live would be fine with me.

An 'under the covers' album of his own songs but with an erotic, late night, Barry White, groove.

Irish, Scottish and English folk ballads. Don't care if it's acoustic or not, Bob could find a way to make it work. I especially want to hear him belt out Nottamun Town, a late medieval nonsense song that reads like it could have been penned by the man himself and from which he pinched the melody for Masters of War. Makes my hair stand thinking this song is from the medieval period.

It's not going to be better than the Bert Jansch version though. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wp0gRrO-l8c

An album of songs about pizza. There's actually quite a few to choose from.

The only cover album I would be interested in would be one in which Bob covers Bob songs.

I would agree that we are long overdue with the follow up. If he doesn't do that maybe he would do a best of the 70 s - Greaest Hits by Artists of the 70s.
