30 Days of Dylan, Day 2: Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat


"Well, you must tell me, baby / How your head feels under somethin’ like that / Under your brand new leopard-skin pill-box hat" Lyrics. From Blonde on Blonde. I do believe I could listen to this song on repeat all day long. Love the dueling guitars and Bob's snarling, smiling vocals.

30 Days of Dylan, Day One: Pretty Saro

Day One: Pretty Saro
Click to listen on Spotify.
"Pretty Saro" is an English folk ballad from the 1700s. The song has been recorded by dozens of artists, including six times by Bob Dylan. But none of his versions were released until the song appeared on the Bootleg Series, Vol. 10, Another Self Portrait. This is the first of 30 Dylan songs from my April playlist. Want to skip ahead? See the full list now.

30 Days of Dylan: Change in the Weather

Welcome to April. It doesn't feel like spring in northern Illinios yet, but it doesn't feel like winter either. We're gaining daylight and warmth, even if it's a little bit at a time.

This change of seasons brings me back to some of my favorite Bob Dylan music. Looking forward to sharing these songs with you this month.
