Comment: "Twas my first Dylan acquisition...

(See in situ)


"Twas my first Dylan acquisition...

on vinyl [Live 1975] as a new release. I had Greatest Hits and Desire on 8-track already, but I hadn't yet gotten Blood on the Tracks, so this version of Idiot Wind was the one I first came to love and know. It's far more seething and ultimately more effective than the studio version.

There's a lone soldier on the cross
Smoke pouring out of a boxcar door
He didn't know it, he never thought it could be done
But in the final shot he won the war
After losing every battle

Having these words planted deep in my marrow set me quite naturally to a life of footsteps behind the likes of Ron Paul...
