Via Wired: Starting Tuesday, the latest music from Bob Dylan will be available on NPR. The album is Tell Tale Signs, another addition to his bootleg series of rare and unreleased recordings. Mississippi, the tune available on Wired, is a beautiful acoustic rendition of a song Dylan recorded (but didn’t release) on his great album Time Out of Mind. It was first released by Sheryl Crow on her Globe Sessions CD in 1998. “Stayed in Mississippi a day too long.” My sentiments exactly. For lots more on Bob, read Erik Anderson’s wonderful blog, Expecting Rain.
I've just started reposting here after a nine month absence. Look for some nice changes to the site and regular updates on U.S. intelligence, privatized spying, Korea, Japan and music. My pages section at the top (just below that incredible photo from South Korea in 1960) includes links to much of my work on Korea, Japan, etc., over the years. Meanwhile, follow me on Twitter @TimothyS and read my blog at TheNation.com.
