Alright, let’s do this! This is the first episode of the new side of Definitely Dylan! It’s still all about Dylan, still featuring rare recordings and beautiful performances, but everything else is more off the cuff (while I’m working hard on bringing you a quality podcast full of analysis and commentary).
This week I’m joined by American singer songwriter Robert Chaney, whom you might remember from episode 22. Together we’re talking about the Dylan songs we’ve been particularly enjoying lately.
Here are some links to some things we talked about:
You can listen to the few unreleased tracks that are circulating from the Bromberg Sessions here.
Here’s a video of an interesting live performance of Hard Times from the Willie Nelson TV Special “The Big Six-0” from 1993. It’s worth noting that this was around the time Dylan and Nelson recorded their co-written song Heartland, which I played in the episode on Dylan’s duets.
And of course you should really check out that unreleased version of the Jimmie Rodgers song My Blue Eyed Jane, featuring Emmylou Harris on harmonies.
