A few days ago I got an e-mail from Robbie Fulks letting me know about the next installment of his ever-changing, always inventive and entertaining weekly Hideout residency on Mondays, which is now into its fourth year. I had already noted the show and planned to write something about it here, but I was still surprised to read his message, which read, in part, “just wanted to let you know your comment on Street-Legal, way back when I was preparing Slow Train Coming, stuck in my head . . . for like a year . . . and now I’m doing it, finally.” Fulks is referring to two consecutive albums by Bob Dylan made in the late 70s. In May of 2010 he and his band performed the music from his popular Slow Train Coming, the first product of the singer’s short-lived born-again Christian phase. At the time I asked him what he thought about Street-Legal, the 1978 album that’s one of the most reviled records in Dylan’s deep catalog. It was the first record I bought by him with my own hard-earned paper route money, and it has always held a special place in my heart.
