“Tangled Up In Blue” — The Lyrical Evolution (1974 to 2014)

July 20, 2015

On Sunday, July 19th, I had the great pleasure of returning as Guest Host of Lisa Finnie’s radio program, The Dylan Hour, on KCSN.

This time I chose the 40-year lyrical evolution of “Tangled Up In Blue” as my theme and dedicated the show to my friend, Seth Winston, who passed away recently.

If you missed it, I’ve posted it here. It’s divided into 2 sections to help minimize the file size. I’ve also provided 3 additional versions, which I didn’t have time to play on air. Hope you enjoy it!
