Subject: RE: Dylan Watch: Events Coming for 60
Hmmmmm, more Quincy Jones eh? Simon and Garfunkle doing the vocals eh? I suspect had Roscoe Holcomb been the subject of the article, they might have suggested his work would have been better with "Earl Scruggs style" banjo.

Sorry, but Mr. Dylan changed the rules forever, and if you really want to get inside of music you have to know SOMETHING of his influences. To many critics that would mean listening to a lot of "boring" old trad farts, and I doubt they really want to do that.

Thanks to the folks who listened to our three shows. Peter worked hard on the series, and it was fun to do.
