It’s been said that the road to Time Out Of Mind began when Dylan recorded two solo acoustic albums in the early 90’s. Good As I Been To You and World Gone Wrong were yet another unexpected twist in Dylan’s path, but by playing alone, at home, on songs he’d known for years, the feeling is Bob reconnected with some important basics that allowed him to regroup and then go forward to write the amazing songs that came out in the late 90’s and through the 2000’s.
In this first episode of Season Two, we start our look at these two albums, placing them in time, hearing a bit about what it was like to make them, and rediscovering the first reactions of some well known critics and reviewers.
There is a longer version of this episode available. See details below.
A special highlight of this episode is an interview with GAIBTY and WGW engineer Micajah Ryan. This interview was done in 2017 by Brian Sword of The Double Stop podcast. In the full interview Micajah talks about his entire career for about 90 minutes, but here we just feature some of his discussion of working with Bob Dylan. Big thanks to The Double Stop podcast and Brian Sword for permission to include that interview in this episode.
