Well played with the Lisa Hand quote, Christy
Doesn’t the expression sum up these times so well?! D
Have fun in Bob world, Rebecca- here’s some info – if you/other Bobcats want to share info via my email, dive in… email@example.com
‘Rough and Rowdy Ways’ is superb and shows Bob’s depths/knowledge of literature etc- also, well analysed on Anne Margaret Daniel’s website – along with numerous other pieces of interest from her writing.
Bob’s book -‘Chronicles’ is a great read and an ‘official bootleg’ CD recorded in NYC ,Live in 1964, shows how far he’d reached by age 23…(the booklet with the CDs is excellent as well)
Loads of other great tips by posters here – so,enjoy everything you can access.
Covers of Dylan are always interesting too – Christy’s lockdown sessions are superb and have brilliant takes on two classic early Dylan songs – ‘The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll’ (episode 4) and ‘I Pity the poor Immigrant’ (episode 6) -regularly played in this bunker…
All the best,Christy – greetings to all companeros – ‘keep on keepin’ on’.
Morning Christy! What is it about a new week that brings a new sense of hope, of better times, of the thought of gigs returning, crowds assembling, the craic, the venturing beyond 5k…hope you’re keeping the good side out.. along with all the Guestbookers’ here..we shall overcome.. (or as the Dylan song goes; we, “shall be released”)

Wow! So much great stuff on Dylan from people here. So much that it’s overwhelming. And we’ve not had your considered thoughts yet. I remember Dr Sinnott, months ago, prescribing 17 new minutes of Dylan.
Do you think it’s possible to choose a favourite album, or era of albums. The thing is so massive.
I spent a couple of hours yesterday with Listen. There was no rugby so I didn’t get distracted.
As I listen, I start to write arrows at the ends of lines, to try to get a feel for the shape of the melody.
I’m going to have to do it again today. The beautiful thing feels so fluid.
A quick question if you don’t mind, do you find the melody changes each time you sing it? It’s very slinky. The words too, there’s a fluidity to them. You said you need a prompt sheet. I’m wondering if that’s the best way and not to try to pin it down too much. I might try it that way.
I’m stuck on “its very slinky”…..what a great turn of phrase
heard a great one on TV last night….the Irish Journalist Lisa Hand was describing her anger at blatant sexism in the workplace….”that really boils my piss”
getting back to Hank Wedell’s “”Listen…..there is no other song like it….those few lines encompass everything
Hi Christy and everyone. Sorry to extend the Dylan theme, but I think it depends on which generation you are, in the sixties I was heavily involved in the CND movement and Dylan’s early protest songs were all a part of it, after his disappearance John Wesley Harding came out and I took a while to adapt to this ‘new’ Dylan, but soon became to like again whatever he brought out, you can’t argue with genius.
I think watching the doc ‘Don’t Look Back’ sums up that time. Cheers Pam
“No Direction Home” by Martin Scorsese is worth a watch
