Subject: RE: Funniest Talking Blues Song
ALICE'S RESTAURANT MASSACREE is a hoot, all right, but it's not a talking blues, methinks. It doesn't really conform to the "rules" or understood format of a talking blues.

I'd call it a recitation or a monologue with musical interludes.

Which doesn't change the fact that it's a GREAT WORK OF ART!
