Done Crossed Over – Belated Notes on Holy Days and Dylan’s Conversion

Passover is my favorite Jewish Holiday. It’s neither high nor holy. Rather than on temple and authority, it centers on a meal with family. One tradition is always to have a non jewish guest at the table, where the food is good and the story better. Revolt from slavery, exodus, good guys and bad, vengeance, plagues.

STOCKHOLM 04.05.2002

Just a few days after performing at the 2002 Grammy's, Bob Dylan recorded a new re-write of "Gonna Change My Way of Thinking" for "Gotta Serve Somebody: The Gospel Songs of Bob Dylan" with longtime friend Mavis Staples. One month later he would kick off a new tour in Stockholm Sweden and perform Solid Rock (what many consider the theme song to his gospel era concerts) for the first time in 20 years. Dylan would continue to perform this rousing song as well as other gospel era songs at numerous concerts across Europe and beyond. The two-time Grammy nominated compilation would be released on Sony/Columbia one year later on April 1, 2003.
