A Dylan for our time?,
This review is from: Mesabi (Audio CD)
Tom russell is the most compelling song writer to come along in a generation. This CD knocked my off my feet. The emotion is intense. The amazing thing is that Tom referrers to people, places and events that happened, or were popular, when he was just a toddler. His sense of history is amazing, as are his songs. If you are in your 60's or 70's you will understand his references much better than young folks who might have to look up Bobby Driscoll on Google.

Cool, but Tom Russell is almost as old as Dylan: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Russell

True, but Tom's songs are for now, Bob's where for then.
