The Week's Best Dylan News & Posts

  • Bob Dylan Pays Tribute to Former Bandmate Robbie Robertson (Pitchfork)
  • Jerry Garcia’s Last Recording Was Dylan’s Jimmie Rogers Tribute (Jambase)
    • Dylan Letter to Jerry: “My record company (a very limited one) is doing a Jimmie Rodgers tribute record – you don’t have to yodel – there’s plenty of songs where he doesn’t yodel but if you want to yodel, that’s ok too –Anyway one of the performers on this record will be me and of course the perfect song for me is Blue Eyed Jane. And it’s included with this letter – Did ya hear my version of “Two Soldiers”? Anyway if it’s not too much to ask, think about a Jimmie song – let me know something in some kind of incalculated amount of time – whatever you decide is ok with me – All the best – Bob”
  • Ask Greil: Aug 8,2023 (Letter In the Ether)
    • “I didn’t have time to look at, let alone go into, the archives when I visited the Bob Dylan Center in June and I doubt I will when I’m back for a book event in late October. Some day—or week—I’d love to. Maybe. Or not.”
    • Lots of other good Dylan mentions.
  • Tough Guy Angels: The Larry & Charlie Harmonies I (Flagging Down The Double E’s)
    • “Between 1999 and 2002, Dylan’s guitarists Larry Campbell and Charlie Sexton joined in on quite a few songs. Their vocals were raw and rootsy (rough and rowdy?), but powerful. They sang on a ton of covers — the bluegrass-gospel numbers that opened the show always a high point — but quite a few Dylan originals too.
    • Includes Free Download of Live Music Collection
  • NEW Cover: Make You Feel My Love (Richard Shindell)
  • NEW Cover: Wiggle Wiggle (Neil Matthew Fox)
