The Sound Opinions Weekend Listening Report: "Bob Dylan, one of the most iconic American artists of the 20th century, just turned 75 this May. Jim and Greg examine the extraordinary career of the music legend in the first of a two-part series. This week, they explore Dylan's folk days to the moment he went electric."

I have argued for years that Dylan is the greatest artist who's ever lived. Who else? Shakespeare? Da Vinci? Dylan. Not everyone understands the depth, breadth and reach of his art.
