From the rough, spontaneous energy of the rehearsals that open this box to the set’s barely-tamed-tornado climax, on stage in Montreal, Bob Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Revue barely lasted a season: seven weeks in the frenzied autumn of 1975. And no song captures the distance and velocity of Dylan’s legendary touring phenomenon across these 14 CDs, between concept — a loose-limbed rock & roll medicine show — and its swinging vengeance on the road, better than “Isis.” Written by Dylan in July, 1975 with his collaborator at the time, theater director Jacques Levy, and recorded that month for the singer’s next album, Desire, “Isis” was a parable of separation and reunion greased with autobiography: the tensions and flux of Dylan’s failing marriage.

“It’s really hard to get arrested in New Orleans,” says Dylan LeBlanc, rapping a heavy silver ring he’s wearing on the table in front of him for emphasis. Somehow, though, the singer-songwriter managed that feat in 2014. “I got into some sort of scuffle in the street and I was super drunk, and I spent the night in jail,” he says, recalling darker days during an interview in Nashville, where he now lives. “The scary thing is you’re in OPP, which is Orleans Parish Prison, because there is no city jail in New Orleans. Being a privileged dude — that’s white and a male — to be in that world, it was one of the most frightened I’ve ever been in my life.” Even so, LeBlanc relates to those who operate outside the norms, or even laws, of society. It’s why he titled his superb new album Renegade and sings about such characters in the LP’s moody title track. (“Police car radio howling out an APB/some … [Read more...] about Dylan LeBlanc Stares Down Sobriety, Organized Religion on New Album ‘Renegade’
