Michael Laffey, media professor and advisor to KSCL at Centenary College, Shreveport, recommends the soundtrack to *I'm Not There*, Columbia-Sony. He says, "Todd Haynes' film presents six Bob Dylans; the soundtrack delivers 34 more. Few twentieth century artists performed the cultural work of hide-and-seek with more depth and dimension than the man from the North Country.

Just as Dylan once lived, played, then ultimately transformed & re-designed the revivals of the 1960s (folk, blues, etc.), the 2 discs in this collection offer contemporary listeners a sprawling treasure map promising riches that listeners are barely beginning to appreciate."

This is the first in a series of holiday music recommendations from the gang at KSCL, 91.3 fm.
