Who do I like? Well, from the title of the post you may have guessed that I am a big Dylan fan. I figured I should get that out of the way at the beginning so if you are one of those people who refuses listen to Dylan because he can't sing you can skip the rest of this post and every other edition of Eddy Music.
Anyway, since he just won a Pulitzer, here's a list of some lesser-known Dylan tunes I really like:
- I'm Not There - From the soundtrack of the new movie. Maybe the quintessential cult Dylan song. Check out Greil Marcus's book about the Basement Tapes for the whole story on this song.
- Blind Willie McTell - "I'll tell you one thing, nobody can sing the blues like..."
- Lilly, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts - Underrated epic (seems like an oxymoron) from Blood on the Tracks.
Okay, that's it for now. If you like Dylan, try these babies on your next trip to the river. They won't disappoint.
