Subject: Joan Baez- uncensored Dylan Movie
From: WFDU - Ron Olesko
Date: 29 Sep 05 - 03:57 PM

I just read a story that has me amazed.   Last week I received the Dylan:No Direction Home DVD before the PBS airing. After watching the film, I wondered how PBS would handle it.

I watched the broadcast on Channel 13 here in the NYC area. I was happy to see that WNET aired a disclaimer before the film started that it contained "strong language" and viewer discretion was advised.

I was happy to watch Joan Baez and her four-letter word reminisce of Dylan writing songs. It wasn't for shock value, it was simply a conversation.

So I assumed that PBS offered the same uncensored version to all their stations.   Wrong. Apparently Channel 13 in NYC was the ONLY station to offer the "uncensored" version. The other 348 PBS stations chose to air the "clean" version.

Well, I guess the Times They are-a Changin.   We are heading back to the Eisenhower error, I mean era. This country is running scared of a few words and a handful of individuals are determining what you and I have the right to watch.

Screw the FCC and conservatives.

We were just talking about this around the lunch table. Our PBS station here in the "city of LA" puts bleeps in- I was saying that when Joanie was quoting Bob there were so many bleeps in a 35-word sentence that you had absolutely no clue as to what he might have been talking about! Stupid for the station to do that, but it actually came out pretty funny.

There were several "fucks" and a few "shits" scattered throughout, most notably from Joan Baez. (Something about that sentence doesn't sound right!)

Pete Seeger also said "Goddamn" at one point. I'm wondering if that was cut as well.

It just amazes me that in 2005 stations are afraid to air this uncensored. Granted it is public airwaves, but there was a disclaimer and it did not air during "family time".   I don't care if there is a bible belt or not, there should be no need to be afraid of words.

With that said, I do admit that I am cautious about what I play on my radio show. I don't care for gratiutous language - in fact I won't even play a song if the songwriter is particulary verbose!   However, I will NEVER bleep a word out of a song. I may not share the artists vision, but I will never change it.

This was shown on Uk Tv couple of nights ago I dont believe it was censored and I certainly heard Joan Baez use the f ,all quite in context and i wasnt offended

I thought the documentary movie we saw was very moving and gave a big back drop to the social history in the US in the mid 60s

How US attitudes have changed over the last 40 years on many issues is remarkable and certainly not something that the average working class brit is likely to have considered

Joan Baez account of how Bob was at that time was very revealing in terms of his music approach did he use the mouth organ as anervous prop in case he forgot the words??

When one considers how thoughtful Joan is about the power of language, it seems especially offensive that her own words should be censored in the context of a social documentary. I recall having a discussion with a friend about Brendan Behan's The Borstal Boy who thought it wasn't necessary for him to use offensive language to discuss the conditions of the British juvenile penal system. What I found most surprising about Behan's work was that it neither received nor needed much editing even with the offensive language.

I found the recorded criticisms of Dylan's improvisations with the harmonica and guitar strumming on live performances such as Mr. Tambourine Man particularly amusing. Dylan was continually composing in his live performances the same fashion any folk artist is continually modifying the words and melody to their own and others work.

In the late 1960s, I lost a contract with a major label because I refused to take the word 'damn' out of a song. We were already at that time five songs into the record. The producer is now dead. He was a very well-known name in the music business--a name everyone would recognize. I mean him no disrespect, but "Fuck censors"!

I surely cannot disagree with Ron in his comments about censorship and why one part of the nation (NYC) can air it others are afraid to do that. Or unwilling.

That said, I wonder, however, given the strictures, sadly, imposed on broadcast radio/ TV is the NY outlet for PBS risking its license? If so--- good for them.

I have to admit that to adhere to my station's worries and cares I have bleeped out certain words ---only twice---a Billy Crystal piece that said: "...move your (fuckin') truck.   (---)was bleeped. The other was a John Prine piece---borderline. Great song and I did not want to lose it--so I eliminated the word "shit"==="...just when you're feelin' good a bird (shits) on your hood"---the rest was a wonderful polemic about the beloved W.

I suppose the question is at which point shall we draw lines. All things are in the eyes of the beholder. My own feeling is that one would hope that both Cable and over the air media know where to draw lines and the government should not be the arbiter of such things. I also will admit that I think that over the air media has a bigger responsibility than Cable/Satellite since they are using the public airwaves

It's a sad state of affairs we're in when people are so afraid of a few words that everyone knows, and most have used with some frequency. There are a lot of truly frightening things in this world; Joan Baez saying "fuck" isn't one of them.

I feel bad for PBS stations that their current status is so tenuous that they have to worry about this stuff.

Do you think this is really a the best place to discuss censorship?

Do you think perhaps that it may be as well to first try and ensure that and you and I are free to express ourselves on our forum here - before using it to criticising censorship elsewhere?

You could try on this thread Censorship on Mudcat but this one has been subject to imposed censorship and closure.

Or even this one Closing threads but that has been subject to imposed closure also.

You could just try and join the debate on this one Opening threads a debate which has not been subject to any imposed closure YET………

Interesting to read peoples' negative reactions to Baez on this thread. I thought she looked as glorious as ever, and given Dylan's shabby treatment of her, was generous, humorous, circumspect and dignified in her assessment of him and his role in her life. She earned the right to more than a few expletives from aspects of that relationship, and chose not to employ them in a negative manner--publically, at least. Good for her.

It isn't about cowardice. It's about the huge fines the FCC is levying against stations that allow "the seven words you can't say on television" to be said on television.

$500,000 is a bit steep for most PBS stations. NYC stations have a much larger piece of the public broadcasting pie than, say, Richmond, VA or Boise, ID so can probably afford to take the chance to let the f--- bombs fly.

What was really remarkable to me was the magnificent sound of Joan's guitar when she played a snippet of "Love is Just a Four Letter Word." Probably was a Martin 0-45 Joan Baez model as it looked rather new. Anyone know for sure? Enough to give a fellow GAS.

Elmer Fudd: your spirited defence of Joan Baez is great. I grant you the dignity, the beauty, the great voice, the fact that Dylan treated her badly, everything. But the fact is, as anyone who watched the film will have noticed, that she completely wrecked Bob Dylan's performance of his very crucial songs, by attempting to join in with them.
So the guy was an artist who had to maintain his own standards, and eventually prevented her from trying. Cruel, sure, but it had to be doe.

Actually, as Joan points out, singing with Bob was difficult at the best of times. It is interesting in the film that she does an amazing job of singing harmony with him on "With
God On Our Side" -- he is all over the place. That she even found a harmony is amazing. I hardly think she wrecked his songs -- he certainly wrecked hers (listen to the Carnegie Hall concerts) -- they were just going in different directions, could happen to anyone.

On the DVD Joan actually sings the whole of Love Is Just A Four Letter Word, very well. I was interested to hear Dylan say she was an excellent guitarist. I have never thought she was much of a guitarist.   I am with Elmer -- she came across as not only beautiful but funny and mature.

Having now seen the film, I think it increasingly bizarre that the words were bleeped out. Whatever you think, "play it fucking loud" is a historic phrase!!!

Peter T.

Sex In the City on channel ten here, and on channel nine, Baez being bleeped. Actually, I didn't mind the bleeps at all, cause I knew what they were bleeping out. It was obvious. It didn't bother me at all. And it actually was more entertaining to watch her being bleeped than if they let the words through.

I hated Joan's early voice--too forced and phony sounding. Her voice is beautiful now though. But listening to the two of them sing together was just painful. Though it did flash through my mind "how do you harmonize with a bleating goat?" And no, I wasn't thinking Joan.

What makes you think I'm not having lots of fun discussing Dylan?

See, the problem with Dylan worshippers like you Little Hawk, is that you are so pig headed and stubborn in your insistence we all just worship Dylan and be done with it. That we not discuss the particulars of his artistic life and influences. If you are such a great Dylan fan, why aren't you interested in discussing any aspects of his life and work?

Your insistence upon remaining pig ignorant of Dylan and the cast of characters he surrounded himself with reminds me very much of the journalist who insisted that the Triumph t-shirt "meant something".

I heard Baez and Dylan sing together live at a time when they were in love, when Bob's star had risen and they were both musical royalty to millions. Who cared whether their voices blended harmoniously? It was mesmerizing to watch them interact and to feel their mutual passion for their beliefs and values, for Dylan's creativity, and for each other. A measure of that electricity came across in footage of one of the Newport Folk Festivals, when they walked out on stage holding hands and sang "With God on Our Side." They obviously were aware of their power as a couple and reveled in it.

However, you cannot experience the full effect of the magic that their better live performances (Joan explained that Dylan's moods were unpredictable and she had to roll with the punches) worked on audiences during those few brief years from film and recordings. Unfortunately for history, ya had to be there.

I also marvel to realize that they were soooooo young.

You are describing it just as it was, Elmer. Well said. I thought Joan did a super job harmonizing to Bob's melody lines, and she was teriffically adaptable to the changes, of which there were many. Bob tends to be unpredictable. There are some great photos of those duets, and you can feel the magic even there, without hearing the music or the voices.

The juxtaposition of Joan's very pure-toned voice with Bob's rough, Guthrie-esque-cum-Ramblin'JackElliot approach was interesting and curiously effective, in my opinion. It beats hell of out listening to duets such as Diana Ross and Lionel Ritchie (who are technically both darned good singers, but...they do pure schlock).

I think it is inappropriate to apply "in" or "out" of tune to Dylan; better to think of Dylan as operating in a "tune field" rather than "in" or "out" of tune: it is more like the German Sprechstimme: tones in a tune field.

greg stephens, it is impossible for any of us to know whether Dylan's refusal to return Baez's favor by including her in his concerts was for artistic or other reasons.

Joan Baez just recently released a live CD called Bowery Songs. She sings songs from throughout her career. She sounds better than she has in a long time. Though burnished with time and experience, her voice sounds great. Maybe she'll finally get some recogniton she deserves in the music business.. like a Grammy.

If a film where Joan Baez used the F word was shown on TV in say 1963 - no one would really be too suprised if such words were censored.

In 2005 - where as been pointed out - there are other TV shows where such words (and simulations of the act referred to) can be broadcast - the censorship of our Joan's words can be thought to be surprising.

The big surprise to me is how this form of censorship in 2005 - appears to be so calmly accepted by the adult audience - the film in question was aimed at.

It was always a bit surprising when Joan swore in public, because her performance style and delivery seemed so pure. She was called "the Madonna", after all, for that very reason. When Dylan's management were trying to decide what to title a new book he had written, she suggested to them, "Why not call it 'Fuck You'?", while Dylan stood by, poker-faced. It must have been a hilarious moment.

She also had an earlier autobiography from the late 60's called "Daybreak". It's a more slender book, but enjoyable.

The strange world of Bob and Joan was far less interesting than John and Yoko's exploits and a lot less entertaining to be honest. The documentary was aimed at deifying Bobby Zimmerman and succeeded in increasing his sales figures tenfold over the last week ( a major feat in itself ). However, as a window into a time of great change and upheaval the program failed to crystalise any sense of true perspective and set poor Bobby in the role of spokesman of a generation by proxy. I found the contributors, including Joan, to be less guiding lights and more like candidates for a Therapy Group.Mr. Zimmerman, back then in monochrome, mocked and juxtoposed in a fascinating display of youthful exhuberant rhetoric and, in his modern day guise of brother of Willie Nelson, said far more with his world weary eyes than his affected southern twang.It says it all that certain people here are far more interested in Joan's four letter word tirades than Bobby's defining moment in music. Scorcese has failed once again to hit the mark as he did when trying to immortalise "The Band" in their last hurrah - you still have the feeling that really you had to have been there at the time.Sadly, Joan Baez's forty five year career has left her bitter and proferring expletives to grab peoples attention - Ginsberg's fiery prose really took a while to register with her but boy! she gets it now.

It Ain't Me Babe.

Regards.

I found a "A Voice to Sing With" rather sad to read. She is so pompous, and unaware of those around her, and lacking any sense of self-criticism. It doesnt seem to have seriously crossed her mind in 40 years that dear Bobby maybe just didnt like singing with her, because their voices didnt fit. She liked being with a genius, but she hadn't got enough nous to realise that a genius might just be creating a picture that she wasn't in. Mind, the other girl friend lurking in the wings probably had something to do with it too.

If the word proxy means authorised to speak on behalf of others - that was not the case in fact and Bob Dylan made it quite clear that it was not his wish either to speak on behalf of a generation.

I couldn't help by be reminded by the film that in a practical sense those songs were a product of a reality that Bob Dylan's generation of young people shared. That we may have not asked and he may not have agreed - but to some extent - his songs then - were not perhaps speaking for a generation but were expressing the wishes and concerns of that generation.

I must admit that I find claims as "No one else ever said what Bob was saying," the claims that he invented the protest song and that he somehow had a finger on the pulse of some Jungian Collective Consciousness like no one else exaggerated at best, and a great insult to singers like Billy Holiday, Sam Cooke and even white singers like the Carter Family. That being said, I find it impossible to brush aside Dylan's ability to express himself in a variety genres and the legacy he leaves, all without possessing a great deal of musical ability. It was stunning to see Dylan state on the Steve Allen Show that he had been only writing songs "for two years." Dylan seemed about as surprised as Allen at his own accomplishment.

I really liked the documentary, particularly the juxtaposition of Dylan then and now, and the memories of other band members. But, I also sense that Sidewinder has reasons behind his/her comments and if Sidewinder would care to expand on 'em I'm interested. I respect Scorsese the filmmaker and believe he's pretty perceptive but he's definitely not perfect (Gangs of New York a case in point). I liked this documentary. I think Dylan comes off as consistent in that he's putting the songs "out there" but has resisted the all-too-common impulse to become 'branded with meaning', which Joan Baez was quite eager to take on. I liked her as well and her language didn't bother me. I also picked up the 'sense of folk' music that made many people adore the young Dylan and feel almost violated as he changed. He's all about change.

Sophisticated Beggar if you have some background to fill in your dissatisfaction, this is your opportunity. Otherwise you sound bitter and dyspeptic. What's he lying about?

The other documentary being aired on PBS is a homage to the early Beatles through the eyes of Pete Best which totally leaves me cold. If you magnify any particular contretemps a thousandfold, you can make the life of an ant incredibly interesting, but what of it. The Dylan documentary captures much more of the relationships and events that influenced me and many others, whereas who became the Beatles' drummer is a matter of low order.

That line clearly refers to a man ejaculating (or being expected to). The "one-eyed midget" is clearly a penis. The whole verse (and much of the song) is about sexual scenarios. I always wondered why Bob put all those male sexual images in "Ballad of a Thin Man", when he did not in any other songs (as far as I know). It's quite a strange song, filled with alienation, anger, and hatred.

Baez detested most of the material on "Highway 61 Revisited", precisely because of the general mood of extreme alienation and anger that it expressed. She and Bob were not communicating well at all at that time (having broken off their relationship).

"I bit into the root of the forbidden fruit, with the juice runnin' down my leg"

His songs are full of sexual double entendres, but not swear words. That's one of the things that's kind of cool about his writing. It's raunchy and tasteful at the same time. That indicates intelligence, rather than the desire merely to shock (as is typical with most rockers). He doesn't seem to smoke on stage either, though he smokes like a chimney offstage. I appreciate his sense of propriety when it comes to musical performing.

Of course, when she quotes small talk with Bob Dylan she's GOT to swear if she is going to quote it accurately.
