Idiot Wind, It Is A Wonder . . .

I've been in a bit of a Dylan mood lately. These things can take a while to pass. You get caught up in the poetry and storytelling and the ease with which he puts together these amazing back up bands and the next thing you know you realize you haven't listened to anything else for weeks. Current obsession: Hard Rain, a live recording (and the only one issued by his label Columbia) of the Rolling Thunder Review. As one reviewer on Amazon put it - "suburban garage rock with the best lyrics ever written." This is a very raw recording. Dylan, at times very off key. But Idiot Wind, Memphis Blues and She's A Big Girl Now are great recordings of Dylan classics.
