Dylan's 60's output was at an amazingly high level....cracks showed with the horrible "Self-portriat" & "Dylan" releases and after "Desire" he found fundemental Christianity and the bottom abruptly fell out....Dylan was basically worthless from 1977 on save for the one possible comeback teaser that would pop up here and there (of which, "Oh Mercy" is one).......that is what I ment when I stated that.
