Pitchfork said: “The music legend returns with a companion piece
to 2001’s Love and Theft, offering new tracks of jazz-inspired, rockabilly-
scamming, ragtime-aping rock’n’roll, more heavily indebted to blues
and honky-tonk than Woody Guthrie and Folkways.”
Full review here. Score: 8/10.
Turn Up The Volume: My all-time favorite singer-songwriter goes back
to the 50s/60s on this one. Several musical genres that inspired his
extraordinary career are featured. Retro rather than modern times,
but Dylan is a supreme retro master.
