'Murder Most Foul', starting with JFK's murder, contains more than 70 references to other songs
Bob Dylan unexpectantly dropped a previously unheard 17 minute song, 'Murder Most Foul' last night. He says it was recorded a while back and it begins with what seems like a straightforward account of JFK's assassination.
What it then does, though, is take us on a journey of the whole sixties from The Beatles to the 20th century.
It's a beautiful, moving tale of what Dylan has been hearing his whole life, the stories he has absorbed and subsequently told, the music he has listened to and the music that has passed from The Who's 'Tommy' to Billy Joel.
