Bob Dylan :: Too Many Mornings (Revisited)

Last year around Bob Dylan’s 80th birthday, we celebrated with a megamix of various renditions of “One Too Many Mornings.” Since there’s no such thing as too many “One Too Many Mornings,” here’s a sequel of sorts for Bob’s 81st — 24 different covers of the classic tune from a wide variety of artists, spanning the decades. Just as Bob never quite settled on a stock arrangement for this one, the interpretations here vary wildly, from gentle folk to raucous garage rock to soaring orchestral pop. Like the song says: “You’re right from your side and I’m right from mine …”

Bob Dylan :: Pretty Good Stuff | Ep. 15 – Live Time Out Of Mind

Dylan’s Time Out of Mind turns 25 this year. Produced by Daniel Lanois, the album won three Grammy Awards and provided a new batch of songs—meditations on love and loss—that Dylan almost immediately began to work into his Neverending Tour setlists. This episode of Pretty Good Stuff explores those live versions of the songs from Time Out of Mind, with performances stretching from a week after the album’s release to the edge of the pandemic, when Dylan temporarily paused his relentless touring schedule. Rediscover how Dylan turned the studio masterpiece into a killer batch of road-tested Pretty Good Stuff.

Bob Dylan :: Springtime In New York: The Bootleg Series, Vol.16 (1980-1985)

Is it possible that the latest in Dylan’s Bootleg Series feels … a little slim? Here’s what we get with Springtime In New York: two discs of rehearsals and outtakes from the tail-end of the so-called “Gospel Era”; two discs of Infidels session outtakes; and one disc with a smattering of live performances and studio alternates from 1984 and 1985. It clocks in at well over four hours, but it isn’t quite the immersive deep dive into this Dylan era that fanatics have been dreaming of for many years.

Strike Another Match :: Dylan Translated

Bob Dylan turns 80 years young this month … so let’s get the celebration started with something a little on the bizarre side.

Bob Dylan :: Rough And Rowdy Ways

I’m on my fourth listen, sitting on my porch, sipping Heaven’s Door Straight Rye. I have a house rule that while you’re drinking it, you can only talk about Bob. But no one ever visits, and now they can’t even visit if they wanted to …
