Full Dylan Album Covered: Bob Dylan – Blood On The Tracks

 

Blood on the tracks is my favourite Bob Dylan album, and it is the one of his albums I play most often. I love it, one of the best albums ever recorded.

October 2: Happy 50th Birthday Gillian Welch

gillian welch

Each person comes to have this musical experience, this moment with us, where they get to sink into our world for a little while. It’s this very unhurried world. It’s fairly quiet, it’s contemplative, but it can be quite panoramic. I think people think interesting thoughts at our shows, and they go rather deeply into some personal experience of their own. I’m really proud that our music seems to connect, because it’s not for everybody. But for the people that our music works for, it really gets down pretty deep in there.
