Came across this comment from Dylan from some time in the 60s:
I won’t even have a fan club because it’d have to have a president, it’d be a group. They [the civil rights/protest movement] think the more people you have behind something the more influence it has. Maybe so, but the more it gets watered down, too. I’m not a believer in doing things by numbers. I believe that the best things get done by individuals
Whatever the musical aesthetic, his personal attitudes don't sit well with a folk worldview.
Back off, or I'll blow the roof off—with sound!

So I just learned that Elvis's cover of "Tomorrow Is A Long Time", recorded in 1966, is pretty much based on the Odetta version, which was released a year earlier on the "Odetta Sings Dylan" LP. Interesting, the kind of stuff he would apparently listen to while making those awful Hollywood movies.

Just listened to this, might be my new 2nd favorite version of All Along The Watchtower I've ever heard (after the nine-inch-nail-ish version I heard from Bob in 2002):
YOU MADE ONE MISTAKE, LENNON, YOU DOUBLE CROSSED MIKE LOVE AND LEFT HIM ALIVE

Sous les pavés, la plage.

Pex Lives!
