Bob Dylan is copying Dan Bern

I first saw Dan Bern like a decade ago at Falcon Ridge Folk festival. He was invited up to do one song by Greag brown & slammed out Jerusalem & left. I was like "ummm...what was that?!" Then I bought the album and was like "That was that!". Dan's music is smart, deep and sharp. I have followed his growth and seen probably about a dozen shows- best one: some punk club in New Haven with smashed TVs and black walls- Dan gave out olives like giving communion to the crowd. Always entertaining. Wasteland is my favorite- I saw the best of my generation playing pinball.

Not to be missed

One of my absolute favorite albums of any genre. This is a rock record for the ages and a snapshot of life for so many of us who grew up in the 80's and 90's. You will find yourself listening again and again, singing along with Dan's twisted voice and lyrics. Absolutely worthy of comparison to Dylan, and in this listener's opinion, a much needed dose of non-conformity in whichever catagory you choose to place it.
