We’ll never stop being surprised by what a few superfans can accomplish, given a little time and a whole lotta dedication. Beatlemaniacs are perhaps the worst offenders, but fans of folk enigma Bob Dylan aren’t far behind.
Not to criticise, we think it’s amazing what these people do in order to extend the legacies of their favourite artists.
Ever wanted to dive deep on Bob Dylan’s discography in chronological order? Thanks to a Dylan superfan, you finally can.
A Spotify playlist put together by Samuel Huxley Cohen has surfaced, containing 763 Bob Dylan tracks in – relatively – chronological order. The playlist begins with 1963’s You’re No Good and ends with last year’s Fallen Angels.
In and of itself, the fact that Dylan has released over 750 songs across 50 years is fucking unbelievable. That’s 15 songs per year, give or take. Truly, a gargantuan feat.
As pointed out by Open Culture, there are a few chronology issues with the playlist, mainly that they’re organised by date of release, rather than date of recording. Nonetheless, it’s the closest you’ll get to a perfect representation of Dylan’s career.
