Agreed. That's Phil Kenzie. He played on some other Al Stewart tracks as well as Alan Parsones Project.

Nice new Scout!  I have the original.  Wondering what the new platter brings to the table...

I realize I steered that subject in an entirely different direction. :D My apologies.

I guess I've been wanting to bring that up for a while, ever since I discovered the link, entirely by accident one day. Sorry, I couldn't resist banging my own drum (lol).

 

At the time, the Music Dept actually had records pressed for each musician. But as you might imagine, those pressings wore out, and the music was lost to me. There's supposedly a link somewhere on that site, that will let us order CD repro's, but they don't include the whole album. I really must order one this weekend. Yeah, I can't tell you how much that one recording means to me. Basically, that was simultaneously the peak, and the end of my music career. Its a long story best explained at a head-fi meet somewhere, over drinks.

There's also a really cool/funny interactive video of a bunch of people from tv shows that look like they're lip syncing on his website: http://video.bobdylan.com/desktop.html

 

I also noticed that "Little Sadie" which I've never heard before, resembled Johnny Cash's "Cocaine Blues" after googling it I discovered that it's apparently some song from 1922 that 40+ artists have done different versions of over all the years.  I'm not sure why I found it so interesting: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Little_Sadie

 

Does anyone else discover music the way I do?  When I find a song I like I either download the entire album it's off of or if I know I like other songs by the artist I usually just download their discography or as many albums as possible and spend about a month listening to it all and getting rid of the stuff I don't like.  I've done that with The Meters, Nine Inch Nails, Pretty Lights, Bill Withers, Led Zeppelin, The White Stripes (and Jack Whites other bands), Chuck Berry, Massive Attack and now Bob Dylan as well as pretty much all the stuff I listen to.  

 

Well, I never want to say I have everything by Dylan, but I'm close enough.

 

To me, there is no contest. Dylan is easily the most influential artist and best songwriter of the last 50 years.

 

I honestly think his body of work is the most interesting over that time period. That is not to say that it's flawless or always great. Dylan's work, like every artist's work, has had peaks and valleys. It has had brilliance and flaws. However, taking his work as a whole, I would say he's the most important artist of the last 50 years.

 

I should note that Jimi Hendrix, while he was alive, considered Bob Dylan to be the world's greatest artist. That's a pretty strong endorsement from a pretty well-regarded musician. :smile:

The Magnetic Fields - 69 Love Songs (1999)

 

This triple (!) album with 69 (!) songs from 1999 is one of the best albums I've ever heard. Period. It's astounding.

 

It should be on everyone's list of desert island discs -- as long there's room for three CDs...

I can't disagree with that!

A new silver shininess!...:D  I would love to hear both versions side by side. I like both but this is what is available if you buy now. Great TT for sure!
