I saw that Erik. Very good causes even if, as I fear the album is a stinker!

OK, I'm a HUGE modern Dylan fan. I love his desecrated voice, I love his craggled face, I love that he dresses like a rhinestone cowboy. I love it all. But this is simply too much.
I do love the fact that he's about the last person in the entire world I ever would have imagined recording a Christmas album.

I just read this thread, and it's really a fun one.

Let me begin by saying that I am a true blue fan of Bob Dylan. I feel like I owe so much to the man, from the first time that I, as a 5 year old kid, heard Peter, Paul, and Mary sing "Blowin' In The Wind", to the present moment. When I heard that song, I first became aware that music can be a way to really say something that matters. Even as a pre-schooler, that came through so clearly in those words, those incredible 9 questions.

For the most part, I knew of Bob Dylan through the 60s by the other people who sang his songs. People like the Byrds, the Turtles, Cher, Noel Harrison, and others. I only began hearing him sing those and other songs later on, in the late 60s and early 70s. I always saw him as a man of mystery, because pop radio in my part of the country wouldn't touch his own records, even as they played his songs as recorded by other artists.

When I did begin to hear Dylan's own work, it was a very exciting experience. I remember the first song I heard was "Rainy Day Women...", and I thought it was one of the weirdest things I'd ever heard on the radio. Then the next thing I heard was "Lay Lady Lay", and that was weird in a whole different way, like two completely different people! Then I finally, some time in 1969, got to hear "Like a Rolling Stone" for the first time. I was spellbound by all those words! All that crazy poetry--I loved it.

Of course, I'm here because I'm a Beatlemaniac, and I have to thank Dylan in part for that, because it's a well established fact that Dylan prodded the Beatles towards becoming the band that I have stayed in love with all these years--even as he admired them, he pushed and challenged them. He's the reason they quit being "cute".

Over the years, I have had to re-learn several times how to appreciate Dylan. To be honest, I was only a moderate fan of Dylan until his "born again" period. It was after Slow Train Coming that I truly became a total admirer of Dylan's work. Something about him professing a faith that brought him much controversy and rejection really spoke to me--and of course it didn't hurt matters that I embraced the same faith he was professing.

What happened as a result of that is that I was drawn in completely to wanting to understand and appreciate his work from every angle, to really hear what he had to say. Dylan has gone through so many changes and evolutions, much like the Beatles did in a much shorter length of time, and that kind of evolution in an artist or band is something that I find very fascinating. So he's kept me interested, kept me listening, all these years.

Dylan has done some of his very best work in the last 20 years, and that's truly amazing. The last four albums are phenomenal. I'll give him a pass to do a corny Christmas album as his next offering, I guess!

Bob's sounds beautiful, as always. Awesome he is doing this. The cd will benefit those in need and proceeds will feed 4 million people this holiday season.

"Most Of The Time" is a way overlooked GREAT song. First heard it in the movie "High Fidelity".

Default Dylan Hero Passes Away 12/4/09

"For me, I never heard a singer as good as Liam ever. He's just the best ballad singer I ever heard in my life, and still is"

- Bob Dylan


It's very sad indeed to hear of the death of Liam Clancy, one of the greatest folk singers of all time.

The Clancy Brothers group compried Patrick "Paddy" Clancy, Tom Clancy, Bobby Clancy and Liam Clancy. Liam had been the last surviving memeber of the group.

Liam Clancy died from interstitial lung disease on 4 December 2009, in Bon Secours Hospital in Cork, aged 74. Liam is survived by his wife, Kim, and five children.
