Michael Gray invented analysis and criticism of Bob Dylan songs with the 1972/3 release of Song & Dance Man. And over the last 50 years and through two major updates of that book, he has remained one of our best and most eloquent of the Dylan scholars.
In this episode we talk about the Good As I Been To You / World Gone Wrong chapter from Song & Dance Man III. The discussion is centered around quotes from the book, I read them and Michael reacts and expounds on his thoughts. We cover 10 of the album's 13 songs.
What you'll hear, in the excerpts in in Michaels comments, is a masterclass on Bob Dylan criticism and analysis.
