Christmas In The Heart: revealing a supreme vocal stylist

Thanks to Jane Swann:

“Listening to Christmas In The Heart on You Tube tonight strengthened my view that that the songs themselves are simply not worth listening to.

“But, less expected, it confirmed that Dylan is a supreme vocal stylist – I’d hesitate to call him a singer any more – his vocals express real emotion, he seems to have plenty in reserve and he makes the carols his own. Great voice: who cares if the range is so narrow?

“And the album is surely an important statement about Dylan’s religious beliefs these days.

“I’ll be buying!”
