Subject: RE: Stolen melodies/Bob Dylan
Yes, I know about Lead Belly's association, and falling out, with Lomax. My point, though, remains valid. If you want to castigate Dylan for changing his name or cultivating an image, or signing with a manipulative manager, there was plenty of precedent. Just ask Elliot Charles Adnopoz from Brooklyn (Ramblin' Jack Elliott).
