Bob Dylan Slow Train Coming LP
Reissued On Vinyl LP!
Bob Dylan's 19th studio album, Slow Train Coming is a result of Dylan's
conversion to Christianity. The album may have alienated some previous fans but
at the same time drew in countless more. "Gotta Serve Somebody" became his first
hit in three years winning Dylan the Grammy award for Best Rock Vocal
Performance by a Male in 1980.

intensity of past debates about Dylan.
"Bob Dylan has, at long last, come back into our lives and times, and it is with

re-evaluation. He wanted — and after so many weak efforts and near failures,
perhaps felt he had no choice — a commercial success. He was also smart enough
to see that this thrust might even be the only road left for his return to
