Thread Name: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
Subject: RE: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
For me, one of his golden periods was with albums like Desire and Blood on the Tracks.
I've got a lot of time for Street Legal, although it does teeter on the brink of "fat Elvis" and goes right over at least once.
And, personally, I'm a huge fan of the Basement Tapes too, for that matter...
Steady on. There's some wonderful stuff on there, but I'm not convinced it's possible to be a fan of the Basement Tapes as an album unless you're unhinged or Greil Marcus (but I repeat myself).
