I never was a big fan of Dylan. I did enjoy one of his works, the one with "Tangled Up In Blue". Back when the blood was young.
A great musician and writer, no doubt. Thanks for the info.

btw, who says he can't sing?

Some people can carry a tune and some need a bull dozer.

While I'm not a Bob Dylan completist, I love every record of his that I have.  And his singing is as good as anyone else's in my opinion.  Crap, that ain't gonna win me jack.

I always give to the SA on Christmas. I hope everybody does. That's where the rubber meets the road, so to speak. And nope, in response to the prize portion of our event, unclear comments will be dismissed by our judges. Thanks for participating.

A nice review from Sean Wilentz, who's new book, Bob Dylan in America, is a must read. At least, for me it is.

Saw him last month in Nashville. He was totally on his A game. The concert would have made a great live album. I also think it's for good reason people tend to be either really into his music or not a fan at all. I think the most talented artists, of any medium, will either be not very well known or will be polarizing.

Glad to hear you enjoyed the concert.  Dylan to me is a towering figure but I still have mixed feelings about the guy. Great voice but never liked the macho posturing at all. Unfortunately for me, his voice over the last 12 years has become unlistenable and the music just so so IMO. Gotta admit he wrote some of the most interesting songs ever and he will live on in American history as one of its greatest songwriters. Three great albums out of a 100 (?) ain't bad. It will be a different planet after he dies.

Lazy stadium night
Catfish on the mound.
"Strike three," the umpire said,
Batter have to go back and sit down.

Catfish, million-dollar-man,
Nobody can throw the ball like Catfish can.

Used to work on Mr. Finley's farm
But the old man wouldn't pay
So he packed his glove and took his arm
An' one day he just ran away.

Catfish, million-dollar-man,
Nobody can throw the ball like Catfish can.

Come up where the Yankees are,
Dress up in a pinstripe suit,
Smoke a custom-made cigar,
Wear an alligator boot.

Catfish, million-dollar-man,
Nobody can throw the ball like Catfish can.

Carolina born and bred,
Love to hunt the little quail.
Got a hundred-acre spread,
Got some huntin' dogs for sale.

Catfish, million-dollar-man,
Nobody can throw the ball like Catfish can.

Reggie Jackson at the plate
Seein' nothin' but the curve,
Swing too early or too late
Got to eat what Catfish serve.

Catfish, million-dollar-man,
Nobody can throw the ball like Catfish can.

Even Billy Martin grins
When the Fish is in the game.
Every season twenty wins
Gonna make the Hall of Fame.

Catfish, million-dollar-man,
Nobody can throw the ball like Catfish can.

Got the Bob Dylan blues and the Bob Dylan shoes
And my clothes and my hair's in a mess
But you know I just couldn't care less
