DU Bob Dylan Group proposal...
Edited on Fri Jan-28-05 06:35 PM by Longgrain
I'm going to try one last time, since there's already a Grateful Dead group, DU needs a Bob Dylan Group.

Who's in. All we need are ten people with donor stars and a mission statement.

A place to talk about Bob Dylan, his life, his music and his poetry.
A well as Dylan's impression on music history in the past, and in the present day.

2. Thanks Rev I wouldn't have taken you for a Dylan fan...
What's your favorite album, a little too big of a question to ask I guess, but...

5. Get the Bootleg Series
I've got it in my car and listen to it everyday on the way to and from work.

It's a LongCD and it's a Longdrive for Longgrain... :-)

24. I was a fan way back before
the Essential Bob Dylan CD came out. I mean, back in the early 90's!
Ok, so I'm not that old, but I do love Dylan.

31. Ditto here!
Early 90's was when I discovered Dylan too.

Back in my art school days.

3. I'll support that
I like Dylan even though I have a hard time with his voice but he's an excellent song writer.

6. aww man this makes me think of somethin
Well, if you're travelin' in the north country fair,
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,
Remember me to one who lives there.
She once was a true love of mine.
Well, if you go when the snowflakes storm,
When the rivers freeze and summer ends,
Please see if she's wearing a coat so warm,
To keep her from the howlin' winds.
Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
If it rolls and flows all down her breast.
Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
That's the way I remember her best.
I'm a-wonderin' if she remembers me at all.
Many times I've often prayed
In the darkness of my night,
In the brightness of my day.
So if you're travelin' in the north country fair,
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,
Remember me to one who lives there.
She once was a true love of mine.

7. Here's on that I've been thinking of lately...
Dedicated to someone who i know lurks here from time to time...

If you see her, say hello, she might be in Tangier
She left here last early spring, is livin' there, I hear
Say for me that I'm all right though things get kind of slow
She might think that I've forgotten her, don't tell her it isn't so.

We had a falling-out, like lovers often will
And to think of how she left that night, it still brings me a chill
And though our separation, it pierced me to the heart
She still lives inside of me, we've never been apart.

If you get close to her, kiss her once for me
I always have respected her for busting out and gettin' free
Oh, whatever makes her happy, I won't stand in the way
Though the bitter taste still lingers on from the night I tried to make her stay.

I see a lot of people as I make the rounds
And I hear her name here and there as I go from town to town
And I've never gotten used to it, I've just learned to turn it off
Either I'm too sensitive or else I'm gettin' soft.

Sundown, yellow moon, I replay the past
I know every scene by heart, they all went by so fast
If she's passin' back this way, I'm not that hard to find
Tell her she can look me up if she's got the time.






I miss ya baby...

11. Your lucky, my dad
was into polka when I was a kid, and he's not even Polish!

Which reminds me, It looks like the Irish Group is doing pretty damned good for itself, last time I looked we had close to 400 messages. Not bad for a group that's but a wee-lad. :toast:

How about the Beatles, one of the few I've listened to since i was a little kid, still can't get enough of Abbey Road.

Tho for some reason Hey Jude is my favorite.

21. Back to Dylan then, since we we talking about Irish folk sons
What do you think of the desire album? I know it's more Eastern European/ Semitic sounding, with the brooding violins, but how about Emmie Lou Harris' constant back round vocals...

Awesome stuff I think.

26. ahh I dont have that
I love the Eastern European/semtic sound, hell if I wasn't an Irish American, I would identify exclusively with my Eastern European side, I choose to do both however. I just have a harder time identifying with western europeans/protestantism, I as an Eastern European Irish Catholic tend to also identify more with Eastern European and the Eastern Orthodox religion, plus I love the archieature. Sorry for the rant man, I am quite the ranta aint I.

29. Do look it up.
Edited on Fri Jan-28-05 10:22 PM by Longgrain
It's one of my personal Dylan faves. Recorded in 1975. Some of the best rock-and-roll violin playing you'll ever hear.

Not to mention liner notes by Allen Ginsburg. :thumbsup:

Edited on Fri Jan-28-05 10:51 PM by Longgrain
But that already seemed to be covered by the Music Appreciation Group.

Tho if you want to start a Beatles Group, I'd second your motion. :hi:

27. That's my fvorite song of all time!
Right now I like Dylan music more than Rolling Stones music. As for the Bootleg Series, the October 64 concert at Philharmonic Hall CD is among the best. It has my favorite assortment of long and revolutionary songs. A HArd Rain's a Gonna Fall, Gates of Eden, It's Alright Ma, Mr. Tambourine Man, and The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll.

47. This reminds me
"Lay, Lady, Lay" played at my first wedding.

We were hippies. He was a faculty member (Antioch College) and I was a student.

What was I thinking????????

10. Thanks for the support...
I didn't start listening to Dylan until I started college in the early 90s...since then he's all I listen too.

There's a lot of great biography's and analysis's of his career. If this Group does get started, it looks like I'm going to have to dust some of my own off the shelves.

14. Alright! More support...
So lets keep this discussion going. What do you think of Dylan during the seventies? I personally love the early stuff, Desire and Blood on the Track were among the first Dylan disks I owned (yes on record) before that i was only aware of the Greatest Hits type stuff they play on the radio...It really opened my mind to a more lyrical style of music.

41. Psst! "Desire" and "Blood on the Tracks" Are NOT "Early Dylan!"

"Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, " "My Back Pages, "Bringing it All Back Home" -- THOSE are early Dylan.

Edited on Fri Jan-28-05 08:24 PM by Longgrain
Every time me or someone else tries to start a Bob Dylan thread we end up getting something like forty responses.

Plus I personally know of a few Dylanphiles, who don't seem to be around tonight, who would be passionate about joining such a group.

52. Good work, Longgrain!
I've been listening to Dylan since I was a little, little kid. My parents were fans and I grew up with his music.

I've seen Dylan live twice and loved every minute of both concerts.
