Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Hard Rain's a Gonna FAll
'Spaw is right, of course.  Dylan's work (early on, at any rate) is of fundamental importance in the development of contemporary "folk" music, and I don't think that anyone would want to deny him that.  A lot of people, though, because they haven't been told, may perhaps assume that he made it all up by himself.  Credit where it's due, basically.
