A Series of Dreams --- Happy Birthday Bob Dylan!

A tip of the hat to Bob Dylan, who turns 68 today. My husband re-introduced me to Dylan 18 years ago. Since then he's been like another member of the family.

Check out Youtube for the wonderful Dylan video Series of Dreams. It's fun to shout out when you see the other famous people. I sold Donavan a ring in 1986 - one degree of separation!!

Bob also recorded a song in 1973 entitled "Hazel". This helped greatly in my affection for him. Here he is singing "Hazel" at The Last Waltz concert with The Band. Unfortunately Scorsese did not use it for the film.

Worthing checking is for other great videos. And please check my next post, which features a recipe from Bob Dylan's mother.

He changed my life. When I actually got over the fact that his voice wasn't the norm and listened, actually listened to his words, it changed everything about me in 1974!

Can't believe I missed this post when you first published. I love Dylan and the cover of Nashville Skyline which came out when my then boyfriend, now husband, and I were in high school. He was, at that time, the biggest Dylan fan ever and we took a Music Appreciation class in h.s. and did our thesis on two Dylan songs: "Boots of Spanish Leather" and "With God On Our Side". I learned so much but our teacher was, shall we say, underwhelmed and gave us a "C". He wanted classical music interpretations.

I'll take Dylan's poetry any day and match it with the best of the best. He was, at the time, a genius.
