So once again no Nobel Prize for Bob. Though he stands in one of the most ancient traditions of literature - that of the bard or minstrel who goes from town to town to tell the news in rhymes, as Allen Ginsberg put it. Guess we`ll have to wait some more years.
The Christmas album is out. I was rather sceptical about this project but after listening to it several times I must admit I like it. Bob seems to be having fun and sounds relaxed on most of the songs. And, above all, it`s a charity project so what can we complain about?
