Delectable

This podcast was recommended by my son who knows my passion for Dylan’s music (and shares it as much as a 31 year old can). I’ve listened to several albums, just finished the Blood on the Tracks podcasts. Ben Burrell knows his stuff, knows how to use clips from songs to support what he is explaining. I’m learning a lot, and over the years I’ve read a bunch of books on Dylan. Ben’s presentation, how he talks about the material…it’s very easy and pleasant to listen to.

Highly recommended

A simple twist of fate brought me to this podcast From my first “another side of BD “ LP bought as a 10th grader living in Paris . I have had an off and on love affair with his music since 1964 I love this - fond memories of older tunes I listened too so much and later cassettes which I owned by didn’t play so much Even bought some of the CDs... Few can write a tune with lyrics that slay me Your knowledge and take is so interesting . We thank you so very much

Ben

It’s a little galling to have listened to Dylan albums as they came out in the 60’s, to have a guy in his 30’s explain to me what I’ve been listening to. But Ben is the best. I don’t know where he gets the depth of knowledge about something created 30 years before he was born, but he’s got the goods. Thanks Ben, keep it going, and thanks.
