A New Dylan Album This Year?

Allan Jones

Thanks for your comments on my Tangled Up In Bob blog, from last week. I was especially intrigued by a post from Mr Sweetwater Johnson, who hints at a new album from Dylan before the end of the year, possibly scheduled for autumn release.

I don’t know where Mr Johnson gets his information, but he thinks there’s a new collection called Blue Eyes In The Darkness, presumably already recorded. Could it be from the same sessions that produced Modern Times.

Has anybody else heard anything at all about this or have any more information to pass on? I’m all ears, as it’s the first I’ve heard of it.

Thanks also to Lucky Oceans, who wrote about bumping into former Never-Ending Tour guitarist Larry Campbell in New York. Great story!

Meanwhile, I’ve been scanning the set lists for Bob’s Scandinavian dates. At first glance, the sets lists seem less volatile than on the dates I saw last October in America, with more of the same songs played from night to night. ‘Cat’s In The Well’ seems to have become a regular opener, for instance.

At a second glance, it’s intriguing to see that ‘Visions Of Johanna’ featured at the Copenhagen show, where ‘Man In The Long Black Coat’ also made an appearance in the set list. Overall, however, there don’t seem to have been radical night-to-night changes to the shows’ contents.

Anyway, full details of the last three concerts follow. And if you haven’t had a moment yet to have a look at the Uncut questionnaire we have on line, maybe you could answer a few questions for us by going to:

There’s a prize to be won, so it could be worth your while!

There's a song on this new Purling Hiss album, playing again now, that sounds more or less like "Debaser" played by Dinosaur Jr. Along with the intensely spirited debut by Mary Timony's Ex-Hex and a comp of the pre-...
