"Love and Theft" is singer-songwriter Bob Dylan's 31st studio album, released by Columbia Records in September 2001. The album continued Dylan's artistic comeback following 1997's Time out of Mind, and was given an even more enthusiastic reception. Though often referred to without quotations, the correct title is "Love and Theft". The title of the album was apparently inspired by historian Eric Lott's book Love & Theft: Blackface Minstrelsy and the American Working Class, which was published in 1993. Read more on Last.fm.
