Hey Melinda, and your album production and publicity crew!
Congratulations on the presentation of your beautiful new album-cover, as seen on your site! Your lovely presence graces any setting!
When I first saw your cover, I was immediately reminded of the cover of Bob Dylan's The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan from 1963, the breakthrough album on which the then-young then-folk singer first filled two sides with his own songs. Upon closer inspection by myself and other of us (ahem) "older" backups, we noticed one resemblance after another, from the layout of the track titles to the main title coloring. While Coming Back to You is, for you, too, a "breakthrough", for the first time presenting you on an album of your own, choosing your own repertoire, you have never heretofore mentioned Bob Dylan as a formative influence, and we would love to hear from you about how this (apparent?) homage to another top-notch "American Original" came to pass. As you know, Bob Dylan is one of my own most formative influences and gurus/idols, and he remains a favorite of Ange and Vicki and others here, too.
So, if you'd like, we'd sure like .... to hear your telling of the connection between The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan and Coming Back to You!
Bernie, for the Backups, who all love you and can't wait for the third of February!
