You know it!  Before Bob came around with his harsh lyrics and re-tooling of the classic "love" song to include themes of despair and distaste, well it was mostly "hold my hand" or "so good together" type songs. 

And for all those who don't "get" Bob's songs; here's to you and your life without lost love!  I for one, having hurt and been hurt, unfortunately feel his songs right in my soul.  Like it was written by him, for me, and I wish I could also say "I don't get Bob's music."

Alas, here I am, more than 50 years after this came out, still feeling his pain and enjoying his parting shots.  PEACE and Long Live RP!!

Another Dylan track in which the title of the song is never in the lyrics. Rainy Day Women and others.

I don't recall where I heard it but seem to remember the lyrics were aimed at Richard & Mimi Fariña.

Why doesn't anybody remember Johnny Rivers these days?  He had a whole bunch of hits (some were covers), but they still sound nice on the rare occasion when I do hear one . 

 
Agreed!  Mountain of Love and Poor Side of Town come to mind.

After weeks and weeks of hanging around 
I finally got a job in New York town
In a bigger place, bigger money too 
Even joined the union and paid my dues

Now, a very great man once said
That some people rob you with a fountain pen
It don't take too long to find out 
Just what he was talking about
A lot of people don't have much food on their table
But they got a lot of forks and knives
And they gotta cut something

This is the most perfect line:

And now I know you're dissatisfied
With your position and your place
Don't you understand
It's not my problem?
I wish that for just one time
You could stand inside my shoes
And just for that one moment
I could be you
Yes, I wish that for just one time
You could stand inside my shoes
You'd know what a drag it is
To see you

That is if I ever felt the need to tell someone just exactly that.  It is a classic line.

So if Bobby now decides to turn his back on RnR and go back to exclusively playing folk, does he write another 4th street to piss off all the RbR fans?

This song was evidently not written about the woman who 'discovered' His Bobness, but did introduce him to record producers, the public  the limelight and her stage, only to have him refuse her any of the same courtesies in return. 
After 44 years BD finally said he felt bad about the breakup (in Toronto} but notably, not to her. 

Now we need to hear Diamonds and Rust.

Aud, remember this sign when you walked in?  It was a great way to get two albums (usually about a year old or so) for about 5 bucks. You'd play them once or twice (unless it was "Never Mind the Bollocks", which will be 40 years old in 2017, but is still considered unsafe for ears here, there and everywhere) and then they'd get filed away for years!

So, a couple of nights ago during dinner, we're playing Rhino's original Nuggets compilation among which is "No Time Like the Right Time" by Blues Project with Al Kooper on organ. I explained to my daughter's best friend, who is a college DJ, that this was the same Al Kooper who wrote "This Diamond Ring" and played keyboards, mostly organ, on Dylan's electric coming out, Bringing It  All Back Home, Highway 61 Revisited, and this seminal single. "Al who?"

 
In defense of your daughter's friend, Kooper by his own admission didn't have much business playing the organ during those recording sessions. He thought he'd be able to play guitar on them until he heard Mike Bloomfield play. Kooper says he brazened his way into playing the organ on the disorganized sessions for "Like a Rolling Stone" and only stuck because Dylan liked the strange way he played.

There's a new radio station in Chicago (87.7) playing songs from the 60's & 70's which haven't been beaten to death like the same 250 or so songs you always hear on regular "oldies stations", and I punch it up occasionally driving in.  

Heard BS&W's version of Goffin & King's "Hi-De-Ho" yesterday for the first time in YEARS, and it sounded great.  But I'm pretty sure Al Kooper was gone by then, right?

Many teenage male found this the ultimate summation of feelings toward restrictive parents. I heard doors slam and this song, particularly last verse, played very loudly. Perfect "Loose You" response vs todays more angry and violent response to limitations of youthful tugs of exploration and calls to adventure.

Do they even teach "Call of the"Wild" any more-? Did it lose out to more urban tales of some -ism-?

Great music list this morning. Dylan, "Positively 4th Street", CCR, "Bad Moon Rising", Jill Barber, "Oh My My".
Outbreak of "Happy Feet at RP-?  

Please keep it up...

I find his voice intolerable, his tunes sophomoric and his lyrics pseudo-intellectual masturbation.

Maybe somebody will write a nice song or message ala Bob Dylan about me now.

For all the ridiculous haters out there, and I know you are just a very loud minority, you apparently like rock and roll.

Ok - so please find a comprehensive set of interviews where your favorite rock and roll performers/artists discuss their musical influences.

Good - now, since this is already 2014 check out interviews of these first level influences on who influenced them.

OK - great - now tell me in percentages, how many of these influencers  A) Worship Dylan B) Hate Dylan or C) Don't mention Dylan

My expectation is that his musical sons and daughters and grandsons and granddaughters are so numerous that the numbers will come out something along the lines of: A) 80-85% B) 0 - 5% and C) 10% - 20%

Report back when you are done.
