Last Thursday you read it here first: A video has been shot for Must Be Santa from Bob Dylan’s forthcoming album Christmas In The Heart. It will feature Dylan himself and the finished product may also include, among other things, a fight scene. More details were reported yesterday on a messageboard and are elegantly excerpted by Fred Bals at Dreamtime: ’50s Polka In a Decrepit Mansion, Russians, And a Fight Where Someone Gets Thrown Through A Window.
The thirty-second clip we’ve heard of Must Be Santa sounds riotous, and so it is apt that the description of the video shoot is, well, a riot. (… continue reading …)

Oddly, the preview clips of Christmas In The Heart that were on Amazon UK have been removed. Naturally they had already been copied and someone has posted them on YouTube. It’s hard to imagine how having the clips out there can do anything but stimulate interest in the album that’s going to be released just over three weeks from now, but maybe they were intended to be unveiled with another big press release.

Best wishes to all celebrating the Jewish new year. I sure hope that there will be more to cheer about in 5770 than there was in 5769. At a minimum, it has to feel good to finally leave the ‘sixties behind.
