Isn't Bob just a clumsy imitator?

Post  pinhedz on Mon Feb 04, 2013 5:37 am

I recall (back before The Great Deletion) that we had a thread proving that Bob was just copying the musicians he heard back in Dinkytown around 1958-1961.

I'm pretty sure we proved it at the time--and the pinhed was going to present a lecture on the topic and Johnny Mac's ill-fated Bob Dylan Conference at Swarthmore College.

I would'a done it too. bounce

What was the evidence? geek

For starters, what was it that Bob said about Spider John in Chronicles? study

For the conference lecture, we must tally up the songs that Bob clearly learned from Koerner, Ray & Clover. geek

On President's Day, I decided to undrink the "Poet Laureate of Rock/Roll" PR Positioning Zim-brand Kewl-Aid distributed by Jann Weiner & Jeff Rosen, Esq. whereby I listened to 'Highway 61 Revisit' with fresh, tight, nubile virgin ears, and guess wot, the disc really wasn't so earth-shattering.

A couple years after this record came out, Bobby birthed the song about riding the bus with a comic book and that showed true real promise ... but Bobby doesn't start to get a full gust of genuine sand and chutzpah steam until he accepts Jeshua as Hashem's #1 Bloodied Lamb whereby Bobby evolves into a homeless preacher afflicted with hebephrenic schizophrenia, "Your brother named James got a decent memory but he ain't gon find no coconut bread or Erroll Flynn on the righteous path because you're a fallen woman with a swollen tongue and a soiled bed that aint even fit for hyenas." <----- REEL DEEL HOLYFIELD, (u no it, biterz)

See, this Bobby thoroughly liquidates and emulsifies Cutesy, Cap-Wearing, Hobo Bobby or Polkadot Hipster Mushmouth Speedfreek Bobby. Chubby, Badly-Bearded, Porch Whittling Bobby is not so bad himself ... thing is he sorta just sits there on the shelf ... waiting for the Gross-Man to give him two furs etc. As for Whiteface Flower-Hat Renaldo & EL Mescal Loaf - that Bobby has an OK look, problem is he's always yelling on account of pharma-grade co-cain round his yid-mane.
