Song Of The Day by Eric Berman – “No Time To Think” by Bob Dylan

“Street Legal” is one of the most underrated records in Bob Dylan’s canon. When it came out in 1978, it had the tough task of following both “Desire” and “Blood On The Tracks,” two of Dylan’s most respected studio albums and comparatively speaking, it did not fare so well. It was then followed by the 1978 “Vegas” tour dubbed so because of the female vocalists he brought along and the garish outfits Dylan chose to wear on stage. In retrospect, the tour featured some of Dylan’s most impassioned vocals ever, and the record included some of his greatest songs including “Senor (Tales Of Yankee Power),” “Changing Of The Guard,” “New Pony” (recently covered by Jack White with Dead Weather), “Is Your Love In Vain?” and this amazing track. Dylan would secretly marry Carolyn Dennis, one of the background singers on the album and the tour in 1986.
