February 23rd, 2014

Hi All,

My 2014 Dylan kick continues.  Got this for Christmas and the goal for the year is to listen to every record from start to finish--in one sitting and with headphones (that's one record per sitting…not 47 at once, though that does sound like a good road trip).  Though Blonde on Blonde so far.

In the mood for some Dylan this morning, and so played side one of this one--uninterrupted.  Man…

Where to go from here is no easy task, but the show went like this…

1) Gurf Morlix; If I Could Only Fly; Blaze Foley's 113th Wet Dream
2) Jason Isbell; Alabama Pines; Here We Rest
3) Son Volt; Livin' On; Honky Tonk

5) Bruce Springsteen & Alejandro Escovedo; Always a Friend; Magic Tour Highlights
6) Bruce Springsteen; Stolen Car; The River

7) Los Lobos; Tin Can Trust; Disconnected
