1967

Post  Guest on Wed Aug 31, 2011 12:43 am

I'm thinking about Bob's 1967: The Basement Tapes and John Wesley Harding.
Almost everything there, especially in John Wesley Harding, seems to be inpregnated with guilt and a escaping desire. In John Wesley Harding, the characters seem to be facing something they can't avoid anymore, while in The Basement Tapes they seem to be resigned (and Bob Dylan sings like a cat).

Maybe some lines could serve as a partial example of it:
"Would you please not stare at me like that? you know, it's just my foolish pride. But sometimes a man must be alone and this is no place to hide."
"My trip hasn't been pleasant and my time it isn't long. And I still don't know what it was that I've done wrong."
"There must be somewhere out of here, said the joker to the thief..." "Let us not talk falsely now the hour is getting late"
"He asked me my name. I give it to him right away, then I hung my head in shame."
"Why am I the one who must be the thief ?"
...



Do you people think what I think or what?

It was true then in Possum's Breath, North Saugerties, and it's true now also as well - "hog back strappers are one dime per dozen."
