On this episode we look at the weird and wonderful record 'Desire', possibly Bob's most interesting sounding album ever, it's a record full of stories featuring outlaws and exotic landscapes. There's some brilliant collaborations here, playwright Jacques Levy brings some great ideas, while Scarlet Rivera gives us a unique violin sound throughout. There's some interesting interviews with both of them, detailing working on the album Jacques Levy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hs_NRbODKtM Scarlet Rivera: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E24qy7J5_W0&t=196s Don't forget to follow us on social media: instagram: https://www.instagram.com/bobdylanpodcast/?hl=en Twitter: https://twitter.com/bobdylanpodcast // https://twitter.com/benburrell Thanks for listening!

On this episode we look at one of Bob's best albums in this later stage of his career, an album that feels strangely confident and striding but with a sense of age and death. It would be a highly controversial album too.

This week we have a special episode looking at the song 'Hurricane'. We looked at this as part of Episode 2 on 'Desire' but It's an epic that deserves more attention, here we discuss why it's so important.  This is a great live performance: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QfiK17FhP4g Don't forget to follow us on social media: instagram:  https://www.instagram.com/bobdylanpodcast/?hl=en  Twitter: https://twitter.com/bobdylanpodcast https://twitter.com/benburrell  Thanks for listening!

On this episode we look at the album that saw Bob return to secular music after his infamous Christian period. It would be a watershed moment in his career.

Hi Ben I love your podcasts, many of which I have listened to several times, and all of which raise comments and questions in my mind that I feel like throwing into the pot. So here is one... For some time I've wondered about the influence of Walt Whitman's poetry on Bob Dylan's lyrics, especially their shared habit of using lengthy lists. Bob is a poet and a lover of poetry, and he will know American poetry well. With Murder Most Foul, Bob's list is as long as many of Walt's but another possibility has intrigued me: Whitman famously wrote in memorial of the assassinated President Lincoln and, with Bob being young at the time of JFK's death might he have deferred until he came up with something worthy of a national tragedy...but the moment passed? Now, as an elder statesman of American letters and as a Nobel Laureate living in a world where JFK's reforming optimism is increasingly denied and forgotten, Dylan may have felt more comfortable about commenting in his own way about Kennedy's murder as a pivotal moment from the decade through which he hurtled and changed the culture of the USA and beyond for years to come. Thanks Peter
