Americana singer-songwriter Courtney Marie Andrews joins me to talk about one of high watermarks of Bob Dylan's career - his 1975 breakup album 'Blood on the Tracks'. We talk about why this album is Dylan at his most emotionally transparent, how the album captures all the different colours of a relationship - and its disillusion, how Dylan has maintained his mystique for over 50 years, how turn a song written from trauma into something you can sign night after night, and why Courtney wishes she was compared more often to men. My Favorite Album is a podcast on the impact great music has on our lives. Each episode features a guest on their favorite album of all time - why they love it, their history with the album and how it’s influenced them.
