  1. You guys are doing a service here. I can’t say that I’m a Dylan fan. Much like people who are Shakespeare or History buffs, they don’t know ALL…they know quite a bit about their favorite bits. I have only heard three albums of Dylan in their entirety. However, I have heard those songs maybe a hundred times each. Sometimes one song is like a full blown album to me. At times I am floored by a line, leaving me to have to stay on one song before I can move on to the next song or album. I heard this song later in life at a cafe called Agave. It captured my attention like all of the characters in the song.

    Your conversation about The Ballad of a Thin Man was both entertaining and informative. Thanks!
