I just started teaching a freshman writing class on the music of Bob Dylan. They’ve yet to get rolling on the blog, but once they do you can follow them here at Hiway 61. Today’s Street Parade, then, was mostly early Dylan since that’s what’s on my brain these days (with just a bit of Billy Bragg thrown in for fun):
Billy Bragg/Wilco: “California Stars” from Mermaid Avenue
Billy Bragg/Wilco: “Hoodoo Voodoo” from Mermaid Avenue
Bob Dylan: “Stuck Inside of Mobile With the Memphis Blues Again” from Blonde on Blonde
Bob Dylan: “Love Minus Zero/No Limit” from Bringing It All Back Home
Bob Dylan: “Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues” from Highway 61 Revisited
Bob Dylan: “Desolation Row” from Highway 61 Revisited
Bob Dylan: “Mr. Tambourine Man” from Bootleg #4, 1966
Billy Bragg/Wilco: “One by One” from Mermaid Avenue
Yea, sure, not a lot of variety in terms of artists here, but all good stuff!
See ya next week.
