My thought for the morning was this. Reading Craig McGregor's gusher about Bob in Spectrum. Stuff comparing Bob to Homer annoys me almost as much as Bruce Elder at the other end of the scale. Anyway. He refers to Blood on the Tracks and Desire as "mid-period". But of course in 2005 those albums are part of the first 1/3 of his recording career. Mid period now is Empire Burlesque or Oh Mercy.
My goal is for he and I to live long enough that Love and Theft is "mid period."
MP3: I am the Man Thomas -- Bob Dylan (4.2mb Atlanta Feb. 9 2005)
MP3: Sugar Baby -- Bob Dylan (11mb Same gig.) This one is GREAT.
