Fifty-one years ago, fueled by pills and all-night sessions in a Nashville studio, Bob Dylan recorded Blonde on Blonde. Released as a double album, back when such a thing was basically unheard of (the Beatles would release their self-titled “White Album” two years later), Blonde on Blonde isn’t just one of the greatest records in Dylan’s long and prolific career—it’s one of the greatest records ever made. In tribute to this 50-year milestone, Nashville string band Old Crow Medicine Show recorded a Blonde on Blonde tribute album and are taking these songs on the road. It makes sense for OCMS to helm this project, as the band is best-known for their adaptation of the uncompleted Dylan song “Wagon Wheel,” which has since become all but mandatory for every would-be folk singer to cover in the last decade. Until Dylan transitions from his current phase of lamentable Sinatra standards, this show might be the closest we’ll get to a direct experience of that “thin, wild mercury sound.” SANTI ELIJAH HOLLEY
