70 Years and 70 Songs

Check out the May 26th issue of Rolling Stone at the library.  Bob Dylan is on the cover and in honor of his upcoming 70th birthday, Rolling Stone asked the world's Dylan experts to pick 70 of his best songs.

The number one spot goes to "Like a Rolling Stone" from the "Highway 61 Revisited" album which was released in 1965.  There is also an introduction which describes what makes a "Great Dylan Song".

Can't even come up with 70 individual songs?  Well there are that many -- and more!

Also new to the library's Dylan Collection is a piece of original art painted by Madame Claude Angele Boni.  She is also the author of "Stuck Inside of Mobile with a Rhapsody for Bob Dylan".  The painting arrived from France a couple of weeks ago and is now on display in the library's Dylan Room.
