I'm clearly not the biggest Bob Dylan fan you'll stumble across.  I certainly admire the man's talent, but I find most of his music catalog to be challenging and his voice is what folks refer to as an acquired taste - one that I've never managed to acquire.  And then you come to this 1970, double album set.  I can certainly appreciate a slice of Picasso-styled modern art and you can clearly figure out what Dylan was drawing.  Still, the cover of "Self Portrait" was simply funny.  Yeah, Let's buy this one for the amazing cover art ...
