Wheezing It All Back Home

My old Crawdaddy colleague Jon Pareles with full review of new Dylan album at NYT site.  I knew about the 14-minute Titanic song but not the take on John Lennon's murder, described as the album's true "clunker."  If you've never seen the long-hidden, then bootlegged, now on YouTube film footage of the notorious 1966 Dylan-Lennon car ride while totally stoned/drunk. It was shot for, but obviously not used, for Bob's also long-unreleased film "Eat the Document."  This segment opens with reference to Johnny Cash "in my film."  Later Dylan blows lunch.
