For Anderson, Dylan's magic rests in the lyrics

Lincoln, Neb.--Eighteen words.

That's all it took to put Scott Anderson onto a path to becoming a Bobsessive.

In spring 1987, Anderson was putting the finishing touches on a master's degree at Northwestern University and decided to use a few extra dollars to buy a turntable, amp and "really nice set" of speakers. The first album he played on that stereo was a newly purchased copy of Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits.
