Thread Name: Nic Jones
Subject: RE: Nic Jones
John Wesley Harding? This wouldn't be Bob Dylan in disguise, would it? (Its commonly thought that when Dylan put out an album of trad songs a few years ago, he lifted arrangements from Nic Jones and some others, without giving credit--caused much (justified) fru-fru.)

Or is it someone taking a shot at Dylan by pointedly referencing both Dylan (who of course entitled a song & album "John Wesley Harding") and Jones' trad arrangements?

Seems a bit much of a coincidence...

Don't believe in them myself.
