  1. Excellent podcast, i appreciate how you compared Slow Train to a protest album. I’ve said before this was Bob’s last great protest album, I like how you compared this album to Times Are A-Changin’. I see this as almost a companion song to ‘Restless Farewell,’ both are the final songs on their albums, even having parallel verses:

    Truth is an arrow and the gate is narrow that it passes through
    ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
    But if the arrow is straight
    And the point is slick
    It can pierce through dust no matter how thick

  2. Great show, and a classy discussion fellas. I know I’m always comparing Dylan to Cash, but that’s my wheelhouse, so I have to say this sounds like a slightly softer version of Johnny’s “When the Man Comes Around.”

    And his vocal does sound great here.
