Reply to "Albums turning 50"

Although the OP was about albums from 1971, it has drifted a bit into a 1960s vs 1970s discussion.  In that regard, I find it a bit curious that one artist, who defined and redefined rock music has not been mentioned even once (although I might have missed it).  He released in the 1960s more great music than all the other artists mentioned combined (in my opinion...admittedly very biased).

1963    The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan

1964    The Times They Are A-Changin'

1964    Another Side of Bob Dylan

1965    Bringing It All Back Home

1965    Highway 61 Revisited

1966    Blonde on Blonde

1967    John Wesley Harding

1969    Nashville Skyline

And he is STILL going strong.  His new album (OK, "CD") is fantastic.
