Last year, for Bob Dylan’s birthday, Slate posted a map of every place Dylan has mentioned in a song.
From Oxford Town to Tangier, Morroco, from Cripple Creek in the Rocky Mountains to Acapulco, Mexico, they’re all on the map.
And guess what? The map lives!
It’s alive an well over at The Slate site.
So if you haven’t spent time with the map before, or even you have, there’s no time like now.
And while you’re checking it out here, why not listen to Dylan and The Band sing one of my favorite Basement Tapes songs, ‘Goin’ To Acaplulco.”

Plus an incredible version of “If You See Her Say Hello” from the Rolling Thunder Review:

Thanks. Fantastic stuff musically and fascinating map. Regards from Thom at the immortal jukebox (plenty of bob there!)
