Thread Name: Pete Seeger's pseudonym
Subject: RE: Pete Seeger's pseudonym
Just for the record, Ed Trickett does (or at least did) a whole set of traditional songs which Dylan used as a basis for his own songs. I was blown away by Dylan as a callow youth myself; his paraphrase -- I would not dignigy it as new lyrics -- of "Leaving of Liverpool" is a bit beyond the pale, I think, but these are all subjective.
