What, what

Today I listened to the Dylan album Selfportrait for the first time in long years... and was ASTOUNDED by The Boxer.

Some of you may recall. It's sung by two Dylans, who in fact are one, yet utterly distinct one from the other. A beautiful-voice Dylan and that dirty coarse sounding Dylan.

It's so uncanny when you really listen to it. It reveals a structure of our voice; always on two levels on the way to go apart.
