      I received a copy of his CD the other day and played it through twice today while I was working at my desk. Both my husband and I really enjoyed it. Favorite tracks were the last two, "The Doldrums" and the title track, "Lost & Found".

      I also appreciate that Dylan did his own cover art (he is a visual as well as a musical artist!)

      My only criticism was that it was too short... I wanted it to go on longer.
