Dirt Road Blues is a special song on the Time Out Of Mind Album for a number of reasons. Longtime Dylan Fan/Writer Matthew Zuckerman talks to us today about this song and how it fits – and doesn’t fit – on the album.
Zuckerman is a freelance writer who has written for the International Herald Tribune, the Dylan fanzine Isis, and many others. He’s currently working on a memoir of blues musician Kevin Brown, and is the co-convener of music events for the Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institute where he has presented on Bob Dylan as well as Louis Armstrong.
