Anyone remember the name of a Dylan song that Dave Van Ronk did with a Dixieland Jazz band? Something about "all over you". May bump out contenders in "ribald" category.

On the recent CD reissue Two Sides of Dave Van Ronk, it's just called "All Over You." On the original LP, In the Tradition, it was called "If I Had To Do It All Over Again, I'd Do It All Over You."

That show was definitely not one of Dylan's better nights. I agree that a number of the other performers at that concert sang far better than he did. On the other hand, I've seen and heard him sing marvelously...on certain nights. Bob is very unpredictable. I can of course understand that you don't like the way he sings. I couldn't stand the way he sang either when I was a teenager, but when I hit 21 all of a sudden I started to love the way he sang. I guess my expectations changed at that point.

I also think Mark Knopfler is a great singer, although he's not what you'd call a singer with a flawlessly on-pitch perfect voice. He's a great singer because he's expressive in the manner that fits the song. Ditto for Dylan.

well Maw the thing is that even though I am neither a singer nor a person who has given the world beautiful music(apart from my own songs) In my OPINION he just isnt a good singer. If I can appreciate his songwriting ability but not like and enjoy his singing is that a crime?
I enjoy the voice of Mark Knopfler who is in a similar vein to Dylan and has also written some great songs. Both men are rightfully recognised as great writers but neither of them will ever go down in history as great or even good singers. If someone can sing in key beautifully then good for them others cant. No problem there and as for emotion well that goes with out saying only the songwriter can sing their songs the way they should be sang with the right emotion and experssion of their soul, feeling and passion. But it still doesnt make Dylan sound good through these ears.
Final wee point on this matter from me at the concert where sinead got booed off do you honestly think that he was the best performer on stage that night? cos he really was rotten. Or did some people sing his songs better than he did. I know that i have just contradicted my self in this wee sentence and I'm not affraid to admit it but for me he cant sing.
Speak to you later auld yin

PS listen to aztec camera and I Threw It All Away and then tell me who sings it better. killermont street.com or something like that.

Okay, well, if you think he thinks he can sing what do you think about the fact that I think he can sing, me being myself a very good singer according to most people? Good singing is based upon a number of things, among which are the ability to express and communicate both the emotion and the idea contained in the lyric in an effective manner. Some people sing on key beautifully, but are incapable of investing the song with any real life. Are they good singers? I don't think so.

Why do so many other good singers like the way Dylan sings? Gotta ask yourself that, son.

Best song though
Has to be I Threw It All Away
but to be honest with you any song that he sings is rotten as he's like the worst singer in the world and I dont even think that it's on purpose(I think he thinks he can sing) any way there you go on that one. This is the kind of question for my Da cos he thinks he's really good and stuff

I always thought Jokerman was a song about Jesus from a point of view of disbelief, but with a strangely sympathetic tone. I've never heard any explanations.

Happiest and most incomprehesible--Santa Fe. If anyone knows the actual words I'd like to see them. Every lyric I've seen is wrong on a word or two, but I can't hear some of the others.

   My favorite line in Jack of Hearts is Be careful not to touch the wall, there's a brand new coat of paint. Dylan has the short-story gift for the passing detail that charges everything with reality.

I'm thinking that "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue" was written about Joan Baez.

So I hate to sound like a broken record (CD), but the live version on Biograph is absolutely magical. I believe it is also the version that is on Live '66.

Yeah, I heard a very neat live take of the song by Dylan from quite recently. I think it was on some bootleg that my friend Johny Death had of Dylan in concert during 1999 or 2000. Anyway, he did the verses very quietly and then came in strong on the choruses with harmony singers...quite interesting and different. Sort of like a gospel singalong.

Hawk, your point on "blowin" is well taken and what can either kill a song or keep it alive. When I began thinking of it as an angry protest, almost a rage (like "when is this shit gonna' end???"), it gave the song a new life for me. Its a style that some don't like (too much PPM influence), but I like doing it that way....it takes all the sappiness away.

'Spaw,

Missed your post somehow about "Lay Down Your Weary Tune". I find Bob and a very few others do that from time to time, you'll hear a song a bunch of times, then a line or a phrase will grab you and your're hooked. This song is not yet my favourite tune from Biograph, but it might get me yet. I do like it though.

Hey Steve,

I'm not sure what my issue is with Lily, Rosemary, etc... except that maybe it sounds to me sometimes like Dylan doing a parody of himself, I think there are a few songs that give me that feeling. I love that Biograph - I still have my 5 album set of vinyl that I bought from the Columbia Record and Tape club in the 80s. I think my favorites on that are "Abandoned Love" and "Visions of Johanna."

How about Most Overplayed: Mr Tamborine Man (except for the version on "Live 1966")

Then there's always this one

Talkin World-Worn Flea Blues

One time I goed crazy,a dream come to me
thought I's walkin with a world-worn flea
in my dream there's nobody else around
cept an orange in a tree, hangin down
climbed up th trunk highs I could go
but the fruit was outta reach, and I told th flea so
said th flea to me "don't worry yer head
I'll climb up on the branch instead
alls I really need from you is some means of travel
a rock or a shoe or a big chunk o gravel
or anything else that you can find
see I'll sit on it and you can send me flyin"
so down goes I and I walks around
lookin for flea-fliers on th ground
then what should I kick with my stumblin feet
some body dropped their bicycle seat!
well I picked it up and on jumps th flea
and I flung him up in that citrus tree
I said "come on, boy, drop that orange down"
but the flea just laughed sayin "Ain't you a clown!"
He said "I got better things to do
than sit in th dirt eatin lunch with you"
now I don't mind sayin,it made me swear
to watch that flea puttin on airs
and as I start to stomp and steam
thats where i wake up from this crazy dream
now a very wise man once said
all them dreams is just in yer head
but my advice is of a different kind-
you give me half of yer orange, I'll give you half of mine

Lilly, Rosemary & The Jack of Hearts the worst? One of my favourites. That's what makes horseracing, a difference of opinion.

Jaze - I'm sure that Joan had "Oh Sister" in mind when she wrote some of the lyrics in "Oh, Brother!" (and it's pretty good too). However, I still suspect that "Oh Sister" was about Sarah. On the other hand, it could be about both Sarah and Joan! With Bob, you never know, cos he's good at "keeping things vague" (now who is that quote from?...).

Joan clearly thought that "Sad-Eyed Lady of the Lowlands" was written for her (and some of the lyrics would certainly suggest it..."with your matchbook songs and your gypsy hymns"), but it seems that it was for Sarah, according to Bob.

Again, who knows? "Nobody ever knew for sure where they were really at".

Is it really "her keyhole"? I personally think "a keyhole" is better (it could be anywhere, one has sunk so low), but "her keyhole" is good too -- the symbolism gets a bit odder.
