Retro Easter Sunday: 8

Bob Dylan: Blood on the Tracks

"Townes Van Zandt is the best songwriter in the world and I'll stand on Bob Dylan's coffee table in my cowboy boots and say that."
Steve Earle

Not even close to the greatness of 'Blonde on Blonde' or 'Highway 61 Revisited' but still a great album, though dismissed as 'functional' by The Rolling Stone magazine in 1975, it seems to have gained gravity with the passing years.
Watching Everton dismantle Man Utd with the sound down with this as the soundtrack.
'Blood on the Tracks' seems oddly appropriate for this car crash of a performance.
And now 'Idiot Wind' plays as Rooney mouths off at a team mate...
Ha! 'Tangled Up in Blue' indeed.
