055 - "Tell Ol Bill"

By Sign on the Window

Sign on the Window isn't the Bob Dylan podcast you need, but it's definitely the one that you want! Each week we select a Dylan song at random, live with the song for a week (or two) and then get together to discuss. This week we listened to "Tell Ol' Bill" off the North Country soundtrack and an alternate (and superior) version off The Bootleg Series, Vol. 8: Tell Tale Signs. This week, we talk Dylan's epic "Tell Ol' Bill Sessions," which you can watch on YouTube; we talk about "turn arounds" and "an air" and the professionalism of the NET band; Kelly talks about colonial New England; and Daniel cannot shut it about how grandiose the Tell Tale version is! As always, full show notes at our website ( You can also follow along with our weekly real-time Spotify playlist (search "See That My Playlist is Kept Clean") and join the conversation on Twitter (, message us on Facebook (, like on Instagram ( and reblog on Tumblr ( And if you're loving us, consider our Patreon ( For as little as one dollar you get early access to every episode we do as soon as they're edited (and a dedicated feed just for you) and exclusive content that'll only ever be on Patreon.
