Well Bob’s new record, Modern Times, has been begging and getting a lot of airplay in our home since it was released earlier this week.
This is not an in your face record, but it’s a presence that can’t be ignored either. My favorite tunes are the almost eight minute long laid-back Spirit on the Water, the stark ballad, Workingman’s Blues #2, and the Katrina inspired The Levee’s Gonna Break.
The reviews have been outstanding and many are saying that Modern Times is the third in a string of records (Love and Theft and Time Out of Mind) that compares to Dylan’s most productive periods. I think that may be true, but right now, we are enjoying Modern Times. And I expect it’s going to get a lot of airtime this fall.
