039 - "Yea! Heavy and a Bottle of Bread"

By Sign on the Window

Sign on the Window is a weekly podcast where we randomly select a Bob Dylan song, listen to it for a week, then report back. This week, we listened to “Yea! Heavy and a Bottle of Bread” from the legendary BASEMENT TAPES (our 4th of the season). We talk context, we talk bread and bread (6:15), we talk coded language and free-writing and the logistics of having one foot in reality and the other in a Dalí painting (20:00). Paul Williams described this as one of Dylan’s “most charming performances” and we’d have to agree. While we’d understand if this didn’t exist, we’re very happy it does exist! Full show notes, per usual, at and we’re @sotwpod on Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook — come check us out, follow, and like, subscribe, show us some love. Next week: our season finale on a South Dakota farm.
