Thread Name: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
Subject: RE: Why didn't MacColl like Dylan?
I must say - I do think you miss out Jim.. Dylan was quite wonderful. Just play that first album and imagine a twenty year old in the corner of your room singing and playing like that.
And Alex Campbell with his cowboy boots and big Gibson guitar. He got forgetful when he was old and sometimes sung the same song twice, but he seemed so exotic to us living on housing estates in the midlands. Tales about meeting Big Bill Broonzy. And he did sing folksongs. He was one of us.
