Each has his past shut in him like the leaves of a book known to him by his heart, and his friends can only read the title.
When Bob Dylan took to the studio in 1989 to record a new album, expectations were not very high for the outcome. Following poor reviews for his recent couple of albums, Bob needed a new direction to rekindle the fire in his creative belly. The outcome of his New Orleans collaboration with producer Daniel Lanois was a triumph, and once again, the Zimmy train was back on track and rolling forward. There is a mural by street artist Trotsky, at 9th Avenue and 53 St, New York, a one time Chinese restaurant, but now transformed into Georgio`s Country Grill, used as the cover art for Oh Mercy. If you stand by it and listen real hard, you might be able to hear the lingering sighs of relief coming from the spirit of Bob Dylan, at the triumph of his classic album.
