Definitely Dylan is back after the summer break! Back in the Resonance FM Studio, Laura and Robert catch up on everything that went down in the Dylan world since the last episode, before diving into some current Dylan favourites, including two songs with a Hank Williams connection.
Here’s a link to the article by David Browne about “Love & Theft” and its pre-rock sound.
Regarding the musician personnel playing on Can’t Escape From You, the recording info mysteriously doesn’t even mention an organ. Bob Dylan is credited as “Bob Dylan (vocal, guitar & piano)”, but I think we can safely assume that he was also responsible for the droning organ.
Edit: a mystery rarely stays a mystery for long in the Dylan world, and so I’m pleased to add some further information on the line about the Christmas Pie in Can’t Escape From You, courtesy of the great Scott Warmuth: http://swarmuth.blogspot.com/2008/10/tell-tale-signs-dispatch-1.html?m=1
Gonna Change My Way Of Thinking (Rehearsal with Horns)
Help Me Understand (Soundcheck)
Can't Escape from You (Unreleased, December 2005)
Edit: As a few people kindly pointed out, Help Me Understand was not written by Dylan after all, but is in fact a song by Hank Williams, sung by his alter ego Luke the Drifter.
