Subject: RE: Dylan overrated?You've got to be kidding
well i am gonna add my two cents and say that if any of you wish to invest in the "bootleg" material out there you will find that dylan was a very fine acoustic picker on many of his early trad recordings (minnosota hotel tapes/mackenzie home tapes/gaslight tapes/finjan club tape) there are all available cheap if you find a collector (10 bucks should be about what you pay) you will here alot of cool adaptations and some truely fine playing(ok he aint no bert jansch but nobody said he was)the way his guitar carries some tunes is cool and as an adapter of trad songs he had few peers (the stone r n b way he sang some ,the sweetness he puts into others) and as for nashville skyline, great songs peter drake and kenny butrey and good singing.... guess thats why i like it ..if you cant hear it your loss.
