Subject: RE: DylanOnTube-PBS/ScorseseDocumentary
LOL had dinner with a child of the 60's last night (He's a bit older'n me). I brought up the Dylan 'mystique'. My friend is as with-it as anyone else, but he is also an experienced chorister and he could never stand Dylan's voice, which I find not at all hard to understand.

We also talked about a phenomenon which one of you folks may have a name for: Listening to music much later and developing a like or dislike for it very different from your earlier feeling. I grew up not listening to pop music, then enduring a trip across the United States by car where for some reason there were no classical radio stations until I hit Chicago (and I didn't hit Chicago). Two weeks later I was listening to pop for life. My friend used to listen to a particular Marshall Tucker album before every ski trip. Recently he heard it for the first time in years and had a profound negative reaction.
