Ian Burdon Stolen melodies/Bob Dylan (113* d) RE: Stolen melodies/Bob Dylan 08 Jan 08

Dave Van Ronk stated that Chimes of Freedom was based on a song called Chimes Of Trinity which Von Ronk's grandmother sang.

Not that it matters much: standing the issue of appropriate attribution, it is what Dylan did with the raw material is the interesting bit. Much as it is interesting that Hard Rain is inspired by Lord Randall, it doesn't stop Hard Rain being a masterpiece
