128k, 95 minutes, deep listening to Bob Dylan's Christian songs
Put aside your prejudices and open your ears. I am no believer but these are great songs. Dylan's gift for melody is more apparent than ever, and they are combined with intelligent, heartfelt lyrics that help us see the world in new ways. A discussion of history and music.
All performances by Bob Dylan, except for a brief version of "Saved" from the Gene Scott Orchestra. Do Right to Me, Baby / Trouble in Mind (unedited original take, contains verse cut from 7") / Precious Angel / When You Gonna Wake Up / In the Garden / Man Gave Names to All the Animals / When He Returns / Gotta Serve Somebody (16 November 1979 Warfield Theater San Francisco) / Jesus Rap from Tempe AZ / A Satisfied Mind / Saved / Are You Ready? / Pressing On / Intro and Solid Rock (20 April 1980 Massey Hall, Toronto)
Special thanks to my friend Steve Streight, my listeners, and killradio. The photo is of Dylan on stage at Massey Hall on 20 April 1980. Please tell me what you think of this program.
