Thread Name: Dylan, The Froggy Went a Courtin'
Subject: RE: Dylan, The Froggy Went a Courtin'
I just saw the Madison Square Garden version last night and thought Joni was splendid, though no piano on stage. Bob Dylan likewise, although one has to ask, as did the Sundance Kid, or was it Butch cassidy, "Who ARE these guys?" The two Dylan recordings of trad. and other people's songs are World Gone Wrong and Good as I Been to You, and they are essential, as much for his playing as his selection of material.

Now: where can I get a version of Buffalo Skinners closer to what Dylan and the Band performed on their Basement tapes session, under the title "Hills of Mexico"? And where also can I get the Ian Tyson song that they call "The French Girl"? Who knows it shall reply I hope.
