Bob Dylan’s Christmas Album Reviewed

Monday, November 16th, 2009

This week I’m honored to have been invited to be the guest author on the Jewish Book Council Blog. I’ve put together a four-part series on Christmas in the Heart, Bob Dylan’s curious new album of holiday favorites. In the postings, I discuss the tradition of pop-music holiday albums; the significant contributions of Jewish-American artists to this genre;  and examine Dylan’s album for how it fits in context with his own work, what it means (if anything) about where Dylan’s head is at these days; and, finally, I tell you what I really think of it. Please take a look.
