Thread Name: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
Subject: RE: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
I've not read through all of these posts, so don' t know what has been said before- but toadfrog -- I have to disagree!
Certainly some early Dylan songs were based on Scottish traditional / folk material!
And I know that Jean Redpath shared a flat 'way back when with a number of musicians, Bob Dylan was either one of them or session-ed with them - and Jean would have been singing Scottish ballads and the like! So it does not surprise me that something might have rubbed off onto him-----
I have certainly heard Scots . traditional (undertones? overtones? ) in some early Dylan songs -- -
