The Week's Best News & Posts

  • Joan Baez: ‘It feels good to have changed the world’ (Independant) [8]
    • “She reached out to Barbaro when she heard about the film, to offer a few words of advice. “I just talked about my dependence on Bob, and how I always felt below him,” she says.”
  • Time Out Of Mind – Bob Dylan (Together Through Life) [8]
    • “This is the debut album by the modern Bob Dylan. This is the starting point of the Bob Dylan character that we still see on stage today. The cowboy. The gambler. The rambler. The risk-it-all trickster. King of the leering and the lurid. King of the violent, bloody, gruesome and threatening.”
  • Real Life Rock Top 10 (Letter In The Ether) [8]
    • “They remain as unknown as if they only surfaced yesterday and don’t have titles yet, which allows this anonymous collective the ability to play them as if they’re not by Dylan or anyone else, just stuff they found in a dumpster that looked like songs.”
  • Once or Twice: Lay Down Your Weary Tune (Untold Dylan) [5]
    • “There is also the notion from Paul Williams that, “we hear Dylan struggling to put into words the melody that haunts him” but again I don’t hear that. I hear music that is clearly constructed, and to which the lyrics fit perfectly.”
  • Rory Block Celebrates Bob Dylan On Positively 4th Street LP (Tinnitist) [8]
    • ““I remember the hat, and the youthful face. He was not yet famous, so at that point he was among the many interesting people stopping by. He may have recently been signed to a label, but I don’t think his first album had come out yet.”
