5 On Friday - Dylan


Another 5 on Friday courtesy of Trav at Trav's Thoughts rolls around.  Stop by to sign in and go forth to share your choice of music.

On May 27, 1963, Bob Dylan's breakthrough album, "The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan", was released.  I had discovered Dylan in Fall of the previous year courtesy of a friend who had gone mad about the poetry and first album.  This means that Bob and I have been keeping company for almost a half century. Pass the smelling salts.  I want to be awake for the music.









And just to let Joan get in her two cents worth

Those are all great Dylan tunes my favorite is "tangled up in blues"

cool Dylan set and Joan Baez thrown in too boot.

Linda said...

"Forever Young" would have to be my favorite this week though there's a lot to be said for wrapping up the set with Joan Baez, too!

Travis Cody said...

I've never really been a fan. I find his voice grating. But I do appreciate his poetry set to music.

Cherie said...

Loved the poetry of this set!

Julia Smith said...

I found I enjoyed Joan's song the best - and laughed at the line 'My poetry was lousy, you said.'

Diamonds and Rust is the ultimate in "I used to care and I no longer do". The opposite of love isn't hate, it is indifference.
