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.

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):

After 11 years, Bob's Theme Time Radio Hour is back! Radio Two-Hours, in fact, on the theme of 'Whisky' (He freely admits to plugging his own Heavens Door bourbon at the start, but gets it out the way quick!)
Say what you like about Bob but he keeps busy, and he keeps surprising us.

The original run was great. Can't wait to dig into the new episodes.

Bob Dylan has sold his entire catalog to UMI. Financials were not revealed, but the value had been estimated to be around $300 mil.

I wondered how much they valued "Wiggle Wiggle"?

Wiggle to the front, wiggle to the rear,
Wiggle 'til you wiggle right out of here,
Wiggle 'til it opens, wiggle 'til it shuts,
Wiggle 'til it bites, wiggle 'til it cuts.

Tangentially related, back went I foolishly returned to grad school in Iowa in the late 90s, I RA'd for a guy who was putting together an American Studies readings text. Which meant securing repro permissions. My boss was so pissed off at Garrison Keillor, who wanted, like, $500, for some Lake Wobegon shit and Dylan said using the lyrics to "Blowin' in the Wind" or something like that would be a token $20. My boss was just incredulous, ranting about Keillor thinking he was so much better than Dylan.

Me and the wife had Highway 61 Revisited playing over morning coffee and when the title track played, she said

"What's this song about?"
"I... don't know."

Funny, last week I did a lecture on bootlegs. The first acknowledged rock bootleg was Dylan's Great White Wonder. At the time, its appeal was, in part, because he'd just released Nashville Skyline, and fans longed for the early Dylan, with its morally clear lyrics, especially in the confusion of the late 60s. I didn't say it aloud, but I thought, when the hell was Dylan clear?

extremely abbreviated summary, highway 61 is america's blues highway and the song reflects both the journey of the american music form and that of the traveling musician (and dylan, specifically) as they're changed by the changing american landscape. there's a whole morality tale layered on too, what drives man to commit injustices, and how our views on that change just as our cultural norms change as we continue our journey on highway 61.

Something like that, anyways.
