Robyn Hitchcock is a broadly respected singer-songwriter with a lifetime of connections to Bob Dylan. He saw Bob Dylan perform at the Isle of Wight as a teenager in 1969, became the kind of songwriter that could only exist in the world after Dylan, and has regularly performed and recorded Dylan songs – for decades now.
We asked Robyn to join us as part of our series of discussions with songwriters and performers on Time Out Of Mind, to get his insights on Dylan in the years before TOOM, his first reactions to the album, his thoughts on the production and songwriting, and much more. We heard from a thoughtful man who’s deeply considered Dylan and his work – and was kind enough to share those thoughts with us.
Robyn’s latest album is called Shufflemania, released by Tiny Ghost Records, is being released on Oct 21, 2022. (Links below)
There is an Extended Version of this episode, and a video available. Details below.
