Thread Name: Help: Rip-off of Nic Jones song??
Subject: RE: Help: Rip-off of Nic Jones song??
Dylan & Paul Simon have ripped off many a good traditional song & arrangement collected on their early 60's visits of the London folk scene."Scarborough Fair" lock stock & barrle from Carthy, & the tunes to most of the Paul Simon songbook album.Dylan also took this tune plus Behans "Patriot Game",the trad."Lord Franklin"& numerous others.Some of their lyrics may be original but most of the tunes certainly are not.
