June 24: Bob Dylan: Glasgow, Scotland 2004 (videos)





bob dylan glasgow 2004

One of the worst things people can say when writing a book like this is “You really had to be there”. Yet, for, “Like A Rolling Stone”, that night, “you really had to be there”. Dylan’s voice was a blurred burr and yet powerful and compelling as it competed with a deafening crowd throughout this epic song.

Kris Kristofferson and Bob Dylan Mutual Admiration – Happy Birthday Kris Kristofferson





Happy Birthday Kris Kristofferson (born June 22, 1936)

“Dylan’s probably my biggest hero as an artist, songwriter and singer”
– Kris Kristofferson

We have chosen to take a look into the relationship between Kris Kristofferson and Bob Dylan, and as expected it is harder to find quotes from Dylan than Kristofferson.

Dylan and Kristofferson go back a long time. Kris Kristofferson was a janitor in a Nashville studio when Dylan was recording Blonde on Blonde in 1966. They both appeared in the 1973 film “Pat Garrett and Billy The Kid” and they have recorded and performed each others’ material. Dylan covered Kristofferson’s  They Killed Him on his album,  Knocked Out Loaded.

June 10: Empire Burlesque by Bob Dylan was released in 1985

June 10: Empire Burlesque by Bob Dylan was released in 1985

Empire Burlesque is singer-songwriter Bob Dylan’s 23rd studio album, it was released by Columbia Records 10 June 1985. The album peaked at #33 in the US and #11 in the UK.

Allmusic (Stephen Thomas Erlewine):

“Say what you want about Empire Burlesque — at the very least, it’s the most consistent record Bob Dylan has made since Blood on the Tracks, even if it isn’t quite as interesting as Desire. However, it is a better set of songs, all deriving from the same place and filled with subtle gems — the most obvious being “Tight Connection to My Heart (Has Anybody Seen My Love?),” but also “Emotionally Yours” and “Dark Eyes” — proving that his powers are still there.”

I’ll Remember You (my favorite version from the movie Masked and Anonymous):

Bob Dylan fans and music critics continue to debate the album’s merits, especially when compared to the styles he pioneered in the 1960s and 1970s. It is one of Dylan’s most discussed albums in terms of quality, having a distinct “80s style” production to the songs. There are some really great songs on this album, but they seem hidden under the “80s sound”.

The sessions for Empire Burlesque were held in New York and Hollywood from July 1984 to April 1985.

May 24: Happy 76th Birthday Bob Dylan




bob dylan 2015

Crimson flames tied through my ears
Rollin’ high and mighty traps
Pounced with fire on flaming roads
Using ideas as my maps
“We’ll meet on edges, soon,” said I
Proud ’neath heated brow
Ah, but I was so much older then
I’m younger than that now

he not busy being born is busy dying
