Subject: RE: Top 5 bob dylan albums
Don't send me a copy! Shantner couldn't even act and his version of "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds"... Shucks - let's just forget that nightmare... Still, I guess there is more to hear about "Infidels" LH, because you obviously know more about the story than I do. I was stuck between finishing my studies and busking around Europe at the time. So I did not get to read much of the music press. Can you give us some more details? I know that Sly and Robbie were the rhythm section and that the Keef style guitars (and indeed the Mick Taylor style guitar parts) were played by that marvellous maestro. (You can actually hear his lead slinking in through the mix at the end of "Jokerman" - a very different sound to the Knopfler licks which precede it). What got left out wich could have improved the album?
