Barry Goldberg & Bob Dylan's Secret Gem

Michael Simmons, Huffington Post, 18 March 2010

ONE OF THE QUIET GEMS OF 2009 was an album originally produced by Bob Dylan in 1973. Other than his own work under the pseudonymous Jack Frost, it's the only album Dylan ever produced. It's not, however, a Dylan record, it's a Barry Goldberg record. Even if you've never heard of Barry Goldberg, you've heard Barry Goldberg. Keyboardist/songwriter/producer, he wrote a #1 hit ('I've Got To Use My Imagination' by Gladys Knight & The Pips) and played on another ('Devil With A Blue Dress') by Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels).
