Dave Sutherland Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate (414* d) RE: Bob Dylan: Nobel laureate 26 Oct 16

Jim you do realise that some of us are aware of who Jack Speedwell was and therefore we are acutely aware of his feelings towards Bob Dylan. Jack Speedwell's alter ego took plenty opportunity to use existing tunes to fit his own words and no problem with that; but to focus on what was one of Dylan's very early works, which didn't feature on a major album, but seemed to make up the residue of his written work during that youthful period is unnecessary in the extreme. The same way as the present detractors have focussed on "Wiggle, Wiggle" probably his worst ever song which opens one of his worst albums. How have they missed "Rainy Day Women"? In various publications of the day there are songs by Jack Speedwell's alter ego and his friends that don't quite match his great works. BTW well said Will; do they also "get" Picasso, Pharaoh Sanders, Roy Harper, and Miles Davis??
