The Week's Best News & Posts

  • Don Was on Detroit, Dylan, and Rolling Stones (Stereogum) [8]
    • “Don Was discusses his experiences touring with various artists, including his work with Bob Dylan. Since COVID, he’s figured out something about how to keep his vocals on top of the mix and to have the band support the vocals. It’s made for a better show, I think. You can hear it. He’s thoroughly engaged in the songs every night in the storytelling.”
  • Inside Bob Dylan’s Masked and Anonymous (Uncut) [5]
    • The article delves into the making of Bob Dylan’s film ‘Masked and Anonymous,’ exploring its themes and production challenges.
  • 30 Years Ago Today, Dylan Sang with a 64-Piece Japanese Orchestra (Flagging Down) [10]
    • “We did the show over three nights. Three times. At the end of the third night, when he came off, he said to me that was the best he’d sung for 15 years. I don’t know whether that’s true, but that’s what he said to me.”
  • MusiCares Speech 2015 (Various Mornings and Nights) [10]
    • “If you had sung that song as many times as I did, you’d have written “How many roads must a man walk down?” too.”
  • Not Dark Yet: Bob Dylan’s Influence (Power Line Blog) [5]
    • “I wonder how Dylan could have absorbed all the strains of American popular music in a town as remote as Hibbing. The radio was apparently Dylan’s indispensable source, but the development of his gifts seems incredibly unlikely. How could he have formed the ambition to become “Bob Dylan” from his roots in Hibbing?”
