And you are into many modern day singer/songwriters mate who were probably are influenced by Dylan

Have to admit his music is an acquired taste which is probably the reason why so many on here are not that keen on Bob

Without a doubt, it's the delivery not the song, he's like the Beatles for me, prefer the songs done by others.

As you know as a kid I loved the Beatles & Stones, still do !

I do agree though there are many good covers of the Fab4 recordings....one that comes to mind is Emmylou Harris version of 'Here There & Everywhere', absolutely adore Emmy's rendition :love:

'The Future and the Past' by Natalie Prass is probably my favourite album of the year, much more soulful/jazzy than her excellent 2015 singer/songwriter debut. Can't believe her unique voice for a white lass 8-)

I've never had any problem with the colourful language we have in this country when used appropriately. As it is here. The problem with it is when it is transposed for better fitting words by those with a tenuous grasp of the English language.

I love PiL, always have
BPF - Beradi - Jansson - Forshaw - Cooper - Douglas - Hernandez - Klich - Saiz - Roofe - Clarke

"objective fan" - is that a consistent oxymoron?"

I also love PIL & R&B music but when I hear constant industrial language in artists songs I'm somewhat put off tbh, maybe it's just me :duno:

I knew it had to be a golden-oldie to have a liking for Dylan's music ;-)

Three of those in my top ten, for some reason I haven't got 'Infidels' on my shelves :o

My first choice would be a strange one with many BD fans, it was my first Dylan purchase around 1970/71 so for sentimental reasons 'Another Side Of' is my favourite with 'Blonde On Blonde' on a par for the No.1 spot, anyway here is this funny little tune :)

and if anyone is looking for an updated Ozrics to just chill out to, from just down the road here in Frimley comes the wonderful Shpongle, loads of full albums on You Tube to stream

Never been shpongled before :)

Trippy stuff

Right a change in direction of music after a heavy Dylan session followed by several albums from another legend

Lets go smooth with the reverend

Al Green top 10 playlist

I Can't Stop
Lets Stay Together
I'm Still In Love With You
Gets Next To You
Explores Your Mind
Is Love
Call Me
Livin' For You
Green Is Blues
Everything's Ok

Chart facts

'Tired of Being Alone' & 'Let's Stay Together' are Al's only Top 10 hits in the UK.
More success in the States with six Top 10 hits including three Top 3 hits with his only No.1 single 'Lets Stay Together'

No album success in the UK although Green had 8 Top 30 (3 Top 10) in the USA

From Al Green 2003 album I Can't Stop




And from 1971 his biggest hit

I think the sole Al Green track I have (probably like most others) is LST, off the Pulp Fiction soundtrack.
