Here is a show I did 5 years ago to the DAY!
So obviously it is NOT the latest album by Bob Dylan, but it was back then.
There is a lot of strangeness involved in this show.
For one thing, although I tried to hide it- and did a good job in this first half- I was in mourning, and this was the first show I had come back to do.
More about that in Part Two.
Listening to it now, it is evident I was distracted.
But that takes nothing away from the music.
Since the CD was over an hour and longer than the show, I played selected cuts from this critically acclaimed album- and it is/was terrific!
A few guys like Dylan seem to be rocking harder than ever as they get older- Leonard Cohen comes to mind, Tom Waits is another.
And at 65, Bob Dylan was the OLDEST living person to EVER have an album enter the charts at # 1.
We’ll have some rockers that set the tone, beginning with the opening track, and even a jazzy, crooning Dylan (HUH?).
More to follow.
