Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Gotta Serve Somebody

Answer: Slow Train Coming

Dylan released "Slow Train Coming" in 1979. The album made number two in the UK and number three in the USA and had a strong Christian flavour. Released as a single, "Gotta Serve Somebody" reached number 24 on the US Billboard chart. It won the Grammy for Best Rock Vocal Performance by a Male.
2. Lay Lady Lay

Answer: Nashville Skyline

Bod Dylan's ninth studio album, released in 1969, "Nashville Skyline" had a country & western theme. The album topped the UK charts and reached number three in the USA. "Lay Lady Lay" was a top ten US single and became a live favourite of Dylan's over the ensuing decades.
3. Just Like a Woman

Answer: Blonde on Blonde

"Blonde on Blonde" was Dylan's first double album. Released in 1966, it made number three in the UK and number nine in the USA. Over the years, it has consistently been highly placed in lists of the greatest albums of all time. "Just Like a Woman" was released as a single, reaching number 33 on the US Billboard chart. Manfred Mann did a cover version of it that reached the UK top ten.
4. Maggie's Farm

Answer: Bringing It All Back Home

Released in 1965, the vinyl version of "Bringing It All Back Home" consists of an acoustic side and an electric side, which alienated many of his conservative fans. The album topped the UK chart and reached number six in the USA. "Maggie's Farm", from the electric side, was released as a single in the UK, reaching number 22. Dylan's rendition of the song at the 1965 Newport Jazz Festival began the backlash from some of his fans.
5. Hurricane

Answer: Desire

The 1976 album "Desire" topped the US chart and made number three in the UK. The songs were mostly co-written with Jacques Levy, and many are quite lengthy compared to most of Dylan's output. "Hurricane" opens the album, and is a controversial protest song about the imprisonment of boxer Rubin "Hurricane" Carter.
6. Knockin' on Heaven's Door

Answer: Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid

The 1973 album "Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid" was a soundtrack album for the Sam Peckinpah film of the same name. Dylan actually appeared in the movie. Many of the tracks are instrumental, but not "Knockin' on Heaven's Door", which made the UK singles top ten, and reached number 12 in the USA. The song has been covered by numerous artists, including Eric Clapton and Guns 'n Roses.
7. Tangled Up in Blue

Answer: Blood on the Tracks

"Blood on the Tracks", released in 1975, topped the US albums chart and reached number four in the UK. The album was heavily influenced by Dylan's marital problems at the time. "Tangled Up in Blue" was the only single released from the album, reaching number 31 on the US Billboard chart. Dylan would often sing alternate lyrics to this song when performing it live.
8. All Along the Watchtower

Answer: John Wesley Harding

"John Wesley Harding", released in 1967, topped the UK album chart and reached number two in the USA. The album is named after a nineteenth century Texas outlaw whose last name was actually spelled Hardin. "All Along the Watchtower" is one of Dylan's most played concert songs, and has been covered by artists such as Jimi Hendrix and U2.
9. Blowin' in the Wind

Answer: The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan

Released in 1963, "The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan" was his second album, his first to top the UK charts, and the first to chart at all in the USA, where it reached number 22. The album contains a mixture of political and love songs. "Blowin' in the Wind" was released as a single but failed to chart; a cover version by Peter, Paul and Mary reached number two on the US Billboard chart.
10. Like a Rolling Stone

Answer: Highway 61 Revisited

The 1965 "Highway 61 Revisited" cracked the top five on both sides of the Atlantic. Dylan has dipped into this album for songs on his live sets throughout the decades. "Like a Rolling Stone" was the only single released from the album, and it made number two on the US Billboard chart, and number four in the UK.

The track has regularly appeared near the top of polls of "greatest songs of all times".
