"I won't underestimate you, if you won't underestimate me..."
This show came up quickly out of a discussion with departing DJ Cousin
Kevin about Bob Dylan & Route 78 West. The Columbia 'Bootleg' Series
has done a great job of releasing early sketches, live recordings and
outtakes, but the wealth of other unreleased material of merit is still
quite the 'collectors choice'. We decided to do a fast overview, with
personal anecdotes of what these songs mean to both a young graduate and
an old greying navel-gazing mystic. We hope you enjoy some of these obscurities.
This one is another
chapter in the 'Gift to The Listeners' (#3) and there is more to come.
I think it's time we devoted a whole show to just the "Basement Tapes"
from 1967. Let us know what you think...
