Well, seein' as I have been given a rather extensive Bob Dylan song book (325 songs) I have been lookin' over the titles and thinkin', "Oh, I used to do that one"...

So here's the my list:

*Ballad of Hollis Brown

*Chimes of Freedom

*Don't Think Twice, it's Allright

*Everything is Broken

*Girl of the North Country

*A Hard Rain is A-Gonna Fall

*I Shall be Free

*It Ain't Me, Babe

*Lay, Lady, Lay

*Like a Rolling Stone

*Masters Of War

*Mr. Tambourine Man

*Positively 4th Street

*She Belongs to Me (on my 1st CD)

*With God on Our Side

So what ya'll done over the years in terms of Dylan's songs???

'Dusty Old Fairgrounds' is a good rockin' song, but lacks a bridge or 'middle eight' to make it a classic Dylan song. It's hard to find - try the Blue Ash version from quite a few years ago.

"Dusty Old Fairgrounds" is more like vintage Dylan ca. anno 1963- which is why it isn't built like a pop/rock song.

Buckets Of Rain, Walkin' Down The Line and I still like to do Don't Think Twice.

In the early sixties there were frequent Hootenannies in school gyms and church basements. Before the shows all the performers would get together to be sure there were no duplications. I recall the biggest arguments were about who would get to do Don't Think Twice.

If you delve the later Dylan Archives you will find that Dylan's middle name was Morris. It is not clear, and believe me I have looked, if it was a given name or one he adopted after his 1960's UK tours.

As is commonly known Dylan collected English Folk Tunes and used them for his own songs. Apparantley he was most taken by English Morris Dance tunes and maybe that's where the name came from.

He also used Morris tunes for some of his songs. I play "Black Joke" from Adderbury. A great tune - run through it and see if you can see how it was used for one of his songs.

Cheers

I used to do "North Country Blues". IMO it's just about Dylan's best song. However, it is rather depressing. A 'friend' of mine once said he quite liked my material, "all except that one where a woman suffers every possible personal disaster, you know the one, she's walking down the street and her leg drops off!"

I though this so funny that I used it ever afterwards in my intro to the song!

Back in the 60s I used to do a number of Dylan songs.
I shudder when I think about it now, but I used to do "Masters of War"
complete with Dylan accent and vocal mannerism ( I'm English - well, Manx, actually)
But even that must have please somebody because I recall a chap coming up to me, after I just performed the song, and he told that it was the best thing he'd heard that evening.
But, then again, we were all so very young back then.

Never included them as part of my performing sets as I was trying to cut my own swath as a songwriter. Didn't want to be pigeonholed. It was the hard way as learning other people's songs would've helped me make a better living at the time. Now, however the royalty checks quarterly tell me I made the right decision.

Same w/John Prine, Jackson Browne, James Taylor, etc. While I learned a bit of their material and copped a few licks my sets were almost all original and traditional Celtic/British Isles, Appalachian, Delta blues, ragtime covers and old country chestnuts like El Paso, Wolverton Mountain or Saginaw, Michigan. Sounds like a tour schedule. :-)

Also, I would cover songs by little known songwriters of the time. Tom Dundee, Al Day, Harry Waller, Kedall Kardt, Sally Fingerette, Jodi Alis, Mike Jordan, Mick Scott. All based out of Chicago.

A friend gave me a book of Dylan lyrics a few years ago and I read it over and over for about a week. Made me realize that like the Beatles he didn't merely write songs he shifted culture. To attach words like brilliant or genius is like danming him w/faint praise. He'll be part of literature like Shakespeare, Tolstoy, Whitman, etc. Completely transcendent.

As an unaccompanied floor singer at the local FC, I've done

Don't Think Twice, It's All Right
A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall
Subterranean Homesick Blues
Mr Tambourine Man (the full version, natch)
Like A Rolling Stone
One More Cup of Coffee
No Time To Think

and, accompanied by my friend Mark,
Visions of Johanna

Hard Rain and No Time were both delivered more or less as poems. I did Hard Rain on a "Dylan Night"; I got through the verses, spoken, in three minutes flat, then let rip on the very last line, which is of course

...And I'll know my song well before I start singing

Then sang the last refrain, accompanied by the entire audience. Magical.

Near misses: I've worked up Girl from the North Country and Idiot Wind for performance, but never actually sung them out. I recorded Percy's Song for 52fs, but it didn't come out very well.

"Don't Think Twice, It's All Right."

That's about it. About the time that song came out, everybody and his pet turkey was singing Dylan songs. He had become a fad. I was prevailed upon by a young woman friend to learn the song, and she even lent me the record so I could.

I sang it some, but I generally stuck to my traditional songs and ballads because, to me, that's what it was all about, and although I think Dylan wrote some good songs, I'm afraid I never became one of his horde of worshippers.

Don Firth

P. S.   I didn't like the way he used Joan Baez to advance his career (which he may never have had if she hadn't advocated him rather fiercely) and then unceremoniously dumped her.

P. P. S.   I know I'm probably offending some of the Faithful here, but them's my sediments.

Used to do quite a few from his first album: got the words the laborious "scratch your record" way, by lifting off the needle then scribbling a line at a time in an old school exercise book!
At my retirement party, one of my colleagues did "Forever Young" - a very nice gesture!

One too many mornings
The Ballad of Hollis Brown
Percys Song
Don't think twice its alright
Senor (tales of Yankee power)
You ain't going nowhere

More than likely sung a few more of the usual suspects over the years too.

I would love to learn Tempest but asking an audience to sit still that long!
