Bob Dylan – Rough and Rowdy Ways

He goes from me being nought, but when I was a kid I hated Bob Dylan. I knew the hits, but it just went in and out. Blood On The Tracks was the first album I really liked, I had an epiphany when my friend Philip and I drove to Florida one night, then a live album with The Band, and then a few years ago he made an album called Modern Times which I really loved, with this band that sounded like this old broken toad, really beautiful. This new record I've had in the car for the past two years, along with Kraftwerk – James Endeacott tweeted about this 16-minute Bob Dylan track about the 60s and it was basically a record about my childhood, but from Dylan's point of view. An incredible band, the voice is here but it's croaky. Delicious. I've seen Dylan a few times and generally I've gone to sleep, I may have taken a Mandrax or something.
