Thread Name: Bob Dylan Masters of war.
Subject: RE: Bob Dylan Masters of war.
I was starting to play guitar when Dylan hit the folk scene in England, and recall the impact he made, for a time, on some of us. One thing that does stand out - though other posters here appear to disagree - was the quality of his voice. I always thought that the voice of Dylan at that time was rough, rasping - and absolutely distinctive, with enormous power. I don't care for the later voice(s), on the whole, but the early Dylan voice was fresh and compelling.
