Bob Dylan / Slow Train Coming

Overlook any Bob Dylan album at your own risk; even if you do not appreciate it in the moment, in years’ time its brilliance reveals itself. Jaws dropped when his Bobness dropped this Christian rock collection during the ’79 punk, disco, corporate rock zeitgeist. Waxed in Muscle Shoals with producer Jerry Wexler, bassist Tim Drummond and drummer Pick Withers (Dire Straits) lay down killer swamp-funk pocket grooves which bolster Dylan’s spiritual libretto and Mark Knopfler’s pickery. Don’t miss the soulful chorus of Carolyn Dennis, Helena Springs, and Regina Havis. What would be most gospel artists’ signature work is just another Dylan masterpiece.
