Subject: Dylan, The Froggy Went a Courtin'

I have heard Bob Dylan do "The Froggy Went a Courtin'" on a few occassions. I understand that it's from an album of famous musicians doing children's songs. Can anyone help me with the name of the album and perhaps let me know who else is on it and where I might get it?

I don't know about the children's album but "The Froggy Went a Courtin'" is also on Dylan's 1992 CD "Good as I Been to You."

Earl,

Thank you for that information, I searched and found reviews of the album, sounds good, think I'll pick it up. (As if I need another Dylan album in my collection)

Another one of Dylan's recent 'gems'.

I think it is a pretty good CD. Not everyone can tolerate Dylan's voice these days but it is all traditional songs and he doesn't even claim authorship of any.

I've never heard Dylan do this. If it's the same song, I've heard Doc Watson sing it on The Essential Doc Watson. I must admit I never imagined Dylan (or anyone else I listened to) doing these types of traditional songs when I was listening to Blonde on Blonde and the albums of that era. I'm going to see Dylan this Friday in Ottawa. Joni Mitchell is also on the bill. I'll let you know how it goes.

Missed Bob in Toronto last night, a buddy of mine who I saw Bob with last year said it was magical. I loved his show last year and my friend said this one was even better. Enjoy Ottawa.

Thanks Steve. It was great. I didnb't know what to expect from Dylan this time out. He and his band did a great show; lot's of variety, old classics, new stuff, lot's of energy.

Joni got very mixed reactions from a recent Chicago concert. (She got ticked off at someone who yawned down front.) This was a grand opening concert at the new building of the Old Town School of Folk Music---$2,500.00 per seat. No old favorites done at all. But some said she did fine.

What'd you folks think??

Hi Art,
I have to admit, although I've been a big Joni Mitchell fan for years, I was left a bit unimpressed. She did fine, but at a live show I look for someting more than what you might get off a CD. I'm not sure whether it was that my expectations were too high or something was really missing. It wasn't that it was bad or anything: the band was tight, relaxed at the same time; there just didn't seem to be the passion. Maybe it was just me. Dylan was great though.
I'm still a big Joni Mitchell fan.

I just saw the Madison Square Garden version last night and thought Joni was splendid, though no piano on stage. Bob Dylan likewise, although one has to ask, as did the Sundance Kid, or was it Butch cassidy, "Who ARE these guys?" The two Dylan recordings of trad. and other people's songs are World Gone Wrong and Good as I Been to You, and they are essential, as much for his playing as his selection of material.

Now: where can I get a version of Buffalo Skinners closer to what Dylan and the Band performed on their Basement tapes session, under the title "Hills of Mexico"? And where also can I get the Ian Tyson song that they call "The French Girl"? Who knows it shall reply I hope.

I saw Joni Mitchel at an outdoor concert once. She got so upset at people "milling around" that she walked off stage. Strange behavior for the writer of the definitive Woodstock song.

Lyrics to "French Girl" by Ian Tyson & Sylvia Fricker were posted last Feb 19. Thier recording of the song can be found on the "Play One More" album and "Greatest Hits" album, both have been reissued on CD.
