GUEST,ddw Playin' Dylan songs in Public (72* d) RE: BS: Playin' Dylan songs in Public 25 Feb 00


Truth, Alan — Dylan's songs can be interpreted a bazillion ways and they're still good songs. One of my favorite examples of that is an old album I had in the '60s, lost and recently reacquired in a thrift shop. It's Odetta Sings Dylan and the two most memorable songs on it are her version of Don't Think Twice, done with just a mostly bass, very sparing BLUES beat, and Mr. Tamborine Man, which she does very slowly and plaintively.

Of course I do have a bit of trouble listening to some of the scream&electric versions of his stuff, but that's not the fault of the songs.

cheers

david
