3 Baseball Media Members, Craig Calcaterra, Steven Goldman & Mike Ferrin share their thoughts on Bob Dylan's work and legacy.
Episode 25--Clinton Heylin
A special anniversary edition of "Everything is Broken", as Steve, Craig & Mike welcome Clinton Heylin, Dylan biographer and author of "The Double Life of Bob Dylan: Volume I: 1941–1966 A Restless, Hungry Feeling." We nerd out talking to one of the foremost Dylan scholars and researchers. It's like a Birthday present for ourselves.
EPISODE 24-John Wesley Harding
Steven Goldman, Craig Calcaterra & Mike Ferrin talk about outlaws, biblical figures, and the desire to be one's huckleberry with Bob Dylan's 1967 album John Wesley Harding. The album ran counter to the counter culture of 1967 music but wasn't really pop culture. It makes for an interesting album & potentially interesting discussion
EPISODE 23-Shadows in the Night
Steven Goldman, Craig Calcaterra & Mike Ferrin Open the Great American Songbook, and find, stuffed deep in the spine on page 3781 Bob Dylan, and his 2015 Ode to Frank Sinatra "Shadows in the Night"
EPISODE 22-Planet Waves
Steven Goldman, Craig Calcaterra & Mike Ferrin talk about the 1974 "reunion" album, Planet Waves. Dylan & The Band got together in the studio for some laughs, hijinks, and a very uneven collection of recordings that came ahead of their "Before the Flood" tour
EPISODE 21-Highway 61 Revisited
Craig Calcaterra, Mike Ferrin, & Steven Goldman, mostly discuss, Highway 61 Revisited. "Mostly" because, really, what can be picked apart from an album that holds up well and still, well, owns.
EPISODE 20-Street Legal
Craig Calcaterra, Steven Goldman & Mike Ferrin talk about Bob Dylan's 1978 release Street Legal. It's the first real studio run for "The Dylanettes". It has a saxophone. It's got a really bad reputation. But, the album doesn't always miss and the panelist use it to learn how to love again.
