Tangled Up in Bob

One of the great albums of our era, Dylan's Blood on the Tracks, released on this day in 1975.  I'd heard a different version a few days earlier, with different color and liner notes, at Crawdaddy (indeed the whole album had been re-recorded).  It would make most of the #1 Best Album polls at the end of year.   It's impact was so profound because many had given up hope that he'd ever make another great album.  Here's clip from Renaldo and Clara, the infamous doc on his subsequent Rolling Thunder tour (I was at the kickoff, in Plymouth).  He was already changing the lyrics, changing pronouns at will.   Below that, for fun, Miley Cyrus covers "You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go." -- G.M.
