My Another Self Portrait Review 1 Year, 1 Month ago  
Wrote this the week it came out, but well that's the publishing biz.

Thanks for that Peter - your usual clear-sighted view of things. Makes me want to listen to it again (first time since yesterday). I remember first hearing an old vinyl bootleg of the Isle of Wight concert - around 1980? - and being as blown away as you by Wild Mountain Thyme.

Re:My Another Self Portrait Review 1 Year ago  
A lovely review indeed, Peter, thanks for writing it and sharing it with us. It is indeed a really nice release, and its simple charms are a tonic in these troubled times.

Just one question:

Has anyone asked Bob yet whether he really does think he looks anything remotely like the Jerry Seinfold bloke on the cover? I can only assume the painting a massively complicated joke, on a level us normal humans will never comprehend.

By the way, if anyone's thinking of going to see the mini exhibition of Dylan portraits currently showing at the National Portrait Gallery here in London, don't bother. It's shit.

Thanks Ben, and I have a feeling no one asks Bob such questions.

Sadly, I suspect you are right, Peter.

I also want to know why Bob didn't just get the hint and sod off when the Gypsy wished him well before even saying hello? What's all this hanging around lobbies looking moody about?
