Given that at the last count there were already 21 Bob Dylan albums on the shelves and that I already own over three quarters of the songs on the Essential Bob Dylan was it really necessary for me to acquire it in Newton Stewart?
This of of course a purely rhetorical question given that there can only be one answer.
Some reasons as if they were necessary:
- It's Bob Dylan
- It was only a pound
- I don't have some of the songs
- I only have some as downloads
- It has Blind Willie McTell on it
- You can never have enough Bob Dylan
There you are. Totally justified.
Here are two of the songs that I didn't have - Everything is Broken from Oh Mercy and Dignity from the Touched by an Angel soundtrack album.and Blind Willie which I only previously had digitally.
And finally something to ponder.Can an album with only 36 songs really be described as The Essential Bob Dylan?
