When the deal goes down

new tune avec video by good old weird Bob, from his new collection, Modern Times....

Here's a short review of the CD:

First, let me say that I have a soft spot for the strange old fart. That off my chest, I love this album. It has a similar flavour to Love & Theft. His voice is (for Bob) in fine gravelly form. The songs are fabulous, and the album feels like something that's been floating around for 50 years.... Dylan produced Modern Times himself, as Jack Frost. The band is his road band, guys who play with him every night, and it feels that way.

I rate this one: a full case of extra smokey imported salties. Better add this one to your collection.

I agree totally, great album! Dylan has taken a strong interest in the old bluesmen in the last few years, and their influence is strong this album and the one before.

heard the album the first time a couple of days ago on one of the country's best college radio stations, WGCS in Goshen (Goshen College) IN
