Thread Name: Cyril Tawney/Bob Dylan
Subject: Cyril Tawney/Bob Dylan
When Bob Dylan came to England in 1962 to make "Mad House in Castle Street", he went round various folk occasions and hoovered up songs, most notoriously from Martin Carthy. Now, I imagine he could hardly have avoided hearing, and being influenced by, Cyril Tawney songs. And I have a couple of times heard a rumour that a tape exists of Dylan singing "Sally Free and Easy". Can anyone shed any light on this rumour?
