This evening’s musical listening pleasure has to be Jokerman. It is the obvious April Fool’s Day choice, I know, but it is the very best of 80’s Bob. It was a pretty dark decade, but Dylan’s still got it, those lyrics come flowing.
Ain’t nobody there would want to marry your sister, sings Dylan. Did anyone bother to ask her? I feel we are shut out of half the joke. Bob was always the divine fool, the imperfect redeeming Fisher King, The Jokerman himself.
