228. Old Crow Medicine Show on Bob Dylan 'Infidels' (1983)

Old Crow Medicine Show frontman Ketch Secor joins me to relive his Bob Dylan awakening, as we delve into the underrated 1983 classic 'Infidels'. Ketch explains how his 12 year old brain was primed to fall for the record, how it awakened new emotions in him when he didn't really understand the lyrics, why middle-aged Dylan was his epitome of cool, how 'Union Sundown' fits amongst the union song tradition, what it's like to co-write with Dylan twice in the same unconventional way and whether the next OCMS album will be their 'Infidels'. 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.
