Dylan TV Alert


A place for the discussion of all things not closely related to the sport and its competitive side. (as always, locked for the duration of major international championship)

>Most of the latter half of the twentieth century(at least on the international level) unfolded the way it did because of the meetings between Uncle Joe, FDR and Churchill during the war.

Actually a lot of it goes back even further - to the Paris Peace Conference in 1919 at the end of WWI

As this is a music thread and I don't want to start a new one- any Neil Young fans here?
Anyone have his new CD? It is getting good reviews but I haven't heard it yet.
Harvest" is one of my DH's all time fav records(I like it but not in my top favs)
and people are saying this new one "Prairie Wind" is along those lines.

This thread brings back memories: I was about 20, and wrangled a date with a beautiful blonde, who wanted to drive up to Asbury Park, NJ, to hear Joan Baez ( I was working a summer job in NJ, and cared much more about Duke Ellington, or Thelonious Monk-- but the testosterone kicked in, so I said , "Sure").
In mid-concert, Joan Baez said something about a "special guest", and it turned out to be Bob Dylan. Didn't like him then , and don't now. I've often wondered how people like Harold Arlen have been forgotten, but Dylan is held in such high esteem. (By the way,ever read the poems of Dylan Thomas, and then lookd at Bob Dylan's lyrics?).

Show happened while I was on vacation, so missed it, but after finally getting around to reading this review, guess I'll have to scare up a copy

WOO-HOOO!!! WOW!!!!!

What an incredible-incredible chunk of history revisited (and/or explored for the first time). Repeated chills up and down my spine kind of thing (helps if you're of an age of course). I hated it when it ended. Can see I'll have to get the DVD and deconstruct it further.

The tape I borrowed also had a 20-minute tag-on interview w/ Scorsese that was perhaps a bit too self-indulgently analytical, but definitely added to the process.

Here's a terrific (long) analysis of the show:

Oh yeah---as an inveterate watcher of credits, it was a neat one they tried to slip by us..... somebody listed as "hypnotist collector"!

This month everyone and his brother salutes Bobby D. What with the Scorsese documentary, a contentious Starbucks CD and revelations from the vaults, the PR mill is humming, forcing us all to bow down before the altar of the old testament prophet and Jewish proto-rapper from Minnesota.

Au contraire..."Love Rollercoaster" by Ohio Players has one of the truly great opening guitar riffs.

That's why I said "hardly". The site is about to stream Shame which is a classic.

For Bay Area Dylan fans (from SF Chron site):

<<Dylan Revisited
Cultural critic and Dylan-o-phile Greil Marcus ("Mystery Train," "Lipstick Traces," "Old Weird America") knows how to pick apart a song, especially a Bob Dylan song: In his recent book "Like A Rolling Stone," he spends 283 pages examining the six-and-a-half-minute hit from 1965. With his comprehensive knowledge of American popular and political history, Marcus is like that fascinating, eccentric favorite professor you had in college, practically logorrheic with idiosyncratic musings. On Monday evening, Marcus will give an open-to-the-public talk at St. Mary's College, focusing on Dylan's early protest song "Masters of War," hosted by poet and musician (and former St. Mary's prof) Chris Stroffolino, followed by what is sure to be a colorful Q&A. -- Jan Richman, special to SF Gate
St Mary's College, 1928 Saint Mary's Rd., Moraga; 7 pm; free; (925) 631-4000.>>

Thanks for the info - that is a definite possibility (the price is right, and it is very close by). mrs. hammy hates Dylan, though, so I will probably have to go solo.
