Cover art included, liner notes not included

Bob Dylan's 1989 release Oh Mercy is often considered a comeback record for him and for good reason, it is his strongest album of the decade along with Infidels released earlier in 1983. The swampy, organic and hazy atmospheric production is courtesy of Daniel Lanois and was influenced by the location of the recording — New Orleans — and the local musicians who played on it. By this time Dylan had rediscovered his song writing chops and the record is uniformly strong, featuring stand out tracks such as "Ring Them Bells," "Most Of The Time," "Man In The Long Black Coat" and "Shooting Star." Oh Mercy placed at No. 5 in The Village Voice's Pazz & Jop Critics Poll for 1989 and reached No. 6 in the U.K. and No. 30 on the Billboard chart capping off the decade on a positive note for Bob.
