Hurley is an acquired taste that I have yet to acquire.

I love Michael Hurley. To paraphrase Bob Dylan "you're either a Michael Hurley fan or a Loreena Mckeenit fan and I sure as Ada don't fart Celtic mist".

can't say I'm a fan of either.

What was the original Dylan quote?

"only available in South Korea" sounds like a bootleg to me.

Did Dylan really say that? I can believe it somehow, having listened in wonder to his Theme Time Radio Hours, though I don't recall any Michael Hurley.

Michael Hurley is a rare genius; he's up there with Jim Eldon as the under appreciated soul of idiomatic folk; the pure drop! Must look into these editions - no mention of them over at Snocko News yet...

Michael Hurley, along with Jeffrey Fredericks, and other accomplices from the Holy Modal Rounder collective corrupted my musical tastes for a long time in the 1970's with 'Have Moicy'. I played the LP over and over, and even played it to my little sister - many years later I read some of the lyrics in full...!!! What damage I must have done!

Did Snocko tour in Britain and Ireland this year? I can't tell from the website whether he had planned to do so, or if it was a misleading rumour.

South Korean CD reissues certainly sound a bit iffy...

Matthew

Look Hurley up at Spotify.com. Prolific indeed.
