There was a lot of info in that headline, I know, but I mean, I can’t bury the lead. Yes, Bob Dylan is putting out his first Christmas Album, titled Christmas in the Heart, and all the artists U.S. proceeds are going to benefit those in need in the US and around the world Â for perpetuity. Â Sounds like someone is bringing the Christmas Spirit to the fall. Â Can ya dig?
The album is Dylan’s 47th and first Christmas Album. Who doesnt want to hear the legend croon Here Comes Santa Claus, Winter Wonderland and Little Drummer Boy (though I can’t imagine kids will enjoy his singing. WhenI think Dylan I don’t think warm hearthside family time with cocoa at the holidays, but maybe this album will change that.)
In any event, it is nice to see that poet helpful spirit is continuing in his work and deeds. He will feed millions around the world this holiday season and beyond as future royalties will give sustenance to people year round.
Guess he is getting us all to think a bit earlier about how we are giving this Holiday Season?
Dylan is playing the Hollywood Palladium October 13, 14 and 15th.
