Subject: RE: The Bob Dylan Mystique
Thanks Rick...that album required a nicely warped and somewhat evil sense of humor and lack of reverence to enjoy. I have that so ......but I can see how it was voted in. I've been looking and found that album on vinyl at the big used site, can't remember the name of it now. Must be the 50 mark that's killing me.

In any case, I think there were 6 albums and "Modern Major General" was on either "Photographs" or "Reality is Bad Enough." It cracked me up too. A while back, somebody was looking for "Jimmy Clay" and that too was on one of those two. I only saw him once live, about '70 or '71, at a festival type thing outside D.C. A lot of his stuff was very tongue in cheek humorous, some blatantly offensive (but with a sharp point), but his "serious" (don't know what else to call 'em) songs were really good and delivered with passion.

Didn't mean to get to ramblin' like that...Thanks for the info!!! catspaw
