A HARD RAIN'S A GONNA FALL- Bob Dylan

      E                       A        E
Oh, where have you been, my blue eyed son?
      E                        B
Oh, where have you been, my darling young one?
       A                       E
I've stumbled on the side of twelve misty mountains
      A                          E
I've walked and I've crawled on six crooked highways
       A                       E
I've stepped in the middle of seven sad forests
           A                   E
I've been out in front of a dozen dead oceans
           A                        E
I've been ten thousand miles in the mouth of a graveyard
            E                 B           E               A
And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, and it's a hard
             E   B              E   A  E
And it's a hard rain's a gonna fall

Oh, what did you see, my blue eyed son?
Oh, what did you see, my darling young one?
I saw a newborn baby with wild wolves all around it
I saw a highway of diamonds with nobody on it
I saw a black branch with blood that kept drippin'
I saw a room full of men with their hammers a bleedin'
I saw a white ladder all covered with water
I saw ten thousand talkers whose tongues were all broken
I saw guns and sharp swords in the hands of young children
And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard
And it's a hard rain's a gonna fall

And what did you hear, my blue eyed son?
And what did you hear, my darling young one?
I heard the sound of a thunder, it roared out a warnin'
Heard the roar of a wave that could drown the whole world
Heard one hundred drummers whose hands were a blazin'
Heard ten thousand whisperin' and nobody listenin'
Heard one person starve, I heard many people laughin'
Heard the song of a poet who died in the gutter
Heard the sound of a clown who cried in the alley
And it's a hard, and it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard
And it's a hard rain's a gonna fall

Oh, who did you meet, my blue eyed son?
Who did you meet, my darling young one?
I met a young child beside a dead pony
I met a white man who walked a black dog
I met a young woman whose body was burning
I met a young girl, she gave me a rainbow
I met one man who was wounded in love
I met another man who was wounded with hatred
And it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard
It's a hard rain's a gonna fall

Oh, what'll you do now, my blue eyed son?
Oh, what'll you do now, my darling young one?
I'm a goin' back out 'fore the rain starts a fallin'
I'll walk to the depths of the deepest black forest
Where the people are many and their hands are all empty
Where the pellets of poison are flooding their waters
Where the home in the valley meets the damp dirty prison
Where the executioner's face is always well hidden
Where hunger is ugly, where souls are forgotten
Where black is the color, where none is the number
And I'll tell it and think it and speak it and breathe it
And reflect it from the mountain so all souls can see it
Then I'll stand on the ocean until I start sinkin'
But I'll know my song well before I start singin'
And it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard, it's a hard
It's a hard rain's a gonna fall

Here's a corrected version. Abandoned Love by Bob Dylan (from Biograph collection) Intro: G D G My heart is telling me, I love you still Verses: G Em I can see the turning of the key C D I've been deceived by the clown inside of me Bm C I thought that he was righteous but he's vain G D G Something's telling me, I wear the ball and chain (same chords throughout) My patron saint is a-fighting with a ghost He's always off somewhere when I need him most The Spanish moon is rising on the hill But something's telling me, I love you still I come back to the town from the flaming ruins But when I see you in the street I begin to swoon I love to see you dress before the mirror Won't you let me in your room one time, before I finally disappear Everybody's wearing a disguise To hide what they've got left behind their eyes But me I can't cover what I am Wherever their children go, I'll follow them I'm marching the parade of liberty But as long as I love you I'm not free How long must I suffer such abuse Won't you let me see you smile, before I turn you loose I've given up the game I've got to leave The pot of gold is only make believe The treasure can't be found by men who search Who's gods are dead and whose queens are in the church We sat in an empty theater and we kissed I asked you please to cross me off your list My head tells me it's time to make a change But my heart is telling me, I love you but you're strange (Harmonica solo, same chords as verse) So one more time at midnight near the wall Take off your heavy makeup and your shawl Won't you descend from the throne from whence you sit And let me feel your love one more time, before I finally abandon it ------- -ern.

Fm Fortune calls. Ab Eb Fm I stepped forth from the shadows, to the marketplace, Db Eb Fm Merchants and thieves, hungry for power, my last deal gone down. Ab Eb Fm She's smelling sweet like the meadows where she was born, Db Eb Ab On midsummer's eve, near the tower. (Interlude) Fm The cold-blooded moon. Ab Eb The captain waits above the celebration Fm Db Eb Sending his thoughts to a beloved maid Fm Ab Eb Whose ebony face is beyond communication. Fm Db Eb Ab The captain is down but still believing that his love will be repaid. Fm They shaved her head. Ab Eb She was torn between Jupiter and Apollo. Fm Db Eb A messenger arrived with a black nightingale. Fm Ab Eb I seen her on the stairs and I couldn't help but follow, Fm Db Eb Ab Follow her down past the fountain where they lifted her veil. (Interlude) Fm I stumbled to my feet. Ab Eb I rode past destruction in the ditches Fm Db Eb With the stitches still mending 'neath a heart-shaped tattoo. Fm Ab Eb Renegade priests and treacherous young witches Fm Db Eb Ab Were handing out the flowers that I'd given to you. Fm The palace of mirrors Ab Eb Where dog soldiers are reflected, Fm Db Eb The endless road and the wailing of chimes, Fm Ab Eb The empty rooms where her memory is protected, Fm Db Eb Ab Where the angels' voices whisper to the souls of previous times. (Interlude) Fm She wakes him up Ab Eb Forty-eight hours later, the sun is breaking Fm Db Eb Near broken chains, mountain laurel and rolling rocks. Fm Ab Eb She's begging to know what measures he now will be taking Fm Db Eb Ab He's pulling her down and she's clutching on to his long golden locks.

This version is from Roger McGuinn's latest (5/23/95) live shows, per my recollection. The 12-string guitar is tuned down 1/2 step. The variations between Dylan and The Byrds are shown in brackets -- square for Dylan's lyrics that The Byrds/McGuinn left out and pointy for those they added.

G D They're painting the passports brown. A7 The beauty parlour's filled with sailors. G D The circus is in town. Here comes the blind commissoner. G D They've got him in a trance. A7 One hand's tied to the tightrope walker. G D The other is in his pants. G And the riot squad they're restless D They need some where to go. D A7 As lady and I look out tonight G D On Desolation Row. Cinderella she seem so easy. It takes on to know one she smiles. Then puts her hand in her back pocket, Betty davis style. Then in comes Romeo he's moaning. You Belong to me I believe. And someone says your in the wrong place my friend You better leave. And the only sound that's left After the ambulances go. Is Cinderella sweeping up On Desolation Row. Now the moon is almost hidden The stars are beginning to hide The fortune telling lady Has already taken all her things inside. All except for Cane and Able And the Hunch Back of Notre Dame Everyone is making love Or else expecting rain And the good samaritan he's dressing He's gettin ready for the show. He's going to the carinval Tonight on Desolation Row. Now Ophelia she's 'neath the window. For her I feel so afraid. On her twenty-second birthday She already is an old maid. To her death is quite romantic. She wears an iron vest. Her profession's her religion, Her sin is her lifelessness. And though her eyes are fixed upon Noah's great rainbow She spends her time peeking Into Desolation Row. Einstien disguised as Robin Hood With his memories in a trunk Passed this way an hour ago With his friend a jealous monk. He looked so frightful As he bummed a cigarette Then went off sniffing drain pipes And reciting the alphabet. No you would not think to look at him That he was famous long ago For playing electric violin On Desolation Row. Doctor filth he keeps his word Inside a leather cup But all his sexless patients Are trying to blow it up. Now his nurse a local looser She's in charge of the cyanaide hole And she also keeps the cards that read Have mercy on his soul. They all play on penny whistles You can hear them blow If you lean your head out far enough >From Desolation Row Across the street they've nailed the curtains They're gettin ready for the feast The phantom of the opera A perfect image of a priest They're spoon feedin Casonova To get him to feel more assured Then they'll killed him with self confidence After poisoning him with words And the phantom shouting to skinning girls Get outta her don't you know Casanova is just being punished For going to Desolation Row. Now at midnight all the agents And the superhuman crews Round up everyone That knows more than they do. Then they bring them to the factory Where the heart attack machines Is strapped across their shoulders And then the kerosene Is brought down from the castles By insurance men that go Check to see that nobody is escaping To Desolation Row Praise be to Nero's Neptune The Titanic sails at dawn And everybody shouting Which side are you on And Ezra Pound and T.S. Eliot Fighting in the captains tower While calypso signers laugh at them And fishermen hold flowers Between the windows of the sea Where lovely mermaids flow And nobody has to think too much About Desolation Row Yes I received your letter yesterday About the time the door knob broke. When you asked me how I was Was that some kind of joke. All those people that you mention Yes I know them they're quite lame. I had to rearrange their faces And give them all another name. Right now I can't read too good Don't send me no more letters no. Not unless you mail them from Desolation Row. Be seeing you, Kelwyn. _________ He said that's alright babe, I love you too.

Yes, here the story of the Hurricane The man the authorities came to blame for something that he never done put in a prison cell but one time he could've been the champion of the world Four months later the ghetto's in flame Rubin's in South America fightin for his name while Arthur Dexter Bradley's still in the robbery game and the cops are puttin the screw to him looking for somebody to blame "Remember that murder that happened in a bar?" "Remember you said you saw the getaway car?" "You think you'd like to play ball with the law?" "Think it might have been that fighter that you saw running that night?" "Don't forget that you are white" Arthur Dexter Bradley said "I'm really not sure" Cops said "A poor boy like you could really use a break We got you for the motel job and were talking to your friend Bello Now you don't want to ave to go back to jail, be a nice fellow You'll be doin' society a favor That son of a bitch is brave and getting braver We want to put his ass in the stir We want to pin this trip murder on him He ain't ne Gentleman Jim" Rubin could take a man out with just one punch he never did like to talk about it all that much It's my work he'd say, I do it for pay and when it's over I'd just as soon go on my way up to some paradise where the trout streams flow and the air is nice and ride a horse along a trail but then they took him to the jail house where they try to make a man into a mouse All of Rubin's card were marked in advance The trial was a pig-circus, he never had a chance the judge made Rubin's witnesses drunkards from the slums to the white folks who watched he was a revolutionary bum but to the black folks he was a crazy nigger no one doubted that he pulled the trigger and though they could not produce the gun the D.A. said he was the one who did the deed And the all-white jury agreed Rubin Carter was falsely tried the crime was murder "one", guess who testified? Bello and Bradley and the both badly lied and the newspapers all went along for the ride how can the life of such a man be in the palm of some fool's hand? to see him obviously framed couldn't help but be ashamed to live in a land where justice is a game Now all the criminal in their coats and their ties are free to drink martinis and watch the sun rise while Rubin sits like Buddha in a ten foot cell and innocent man in a living hell that's the story of the Hurricane but it won't be over till they clear him name and give him back the time he's done put in a prison cell but one time he could've been the champion of the world  %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%% % Steve Vetter % I'm not the same % % vetters@vax1.elon.edu % As I was long ago % % Elon College % I've learned some new things % % Love School of Business % And I hope that it shows... % % Alpha Kappa Psi % - Neil Young % %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

I said "I ain't got no money",He said "That ain't necessary". We set out that night for the cold in the North. I gave him my blanket, he gave me his word I said, "Where are we goin'?" He said we'd be back by the fourth. I said "That's the best news I ever heard." I was thinking about turquiose I was thinking about gold. I was thhinking about diamonds and the worlds biggest necklace. As we rode through the canyons, through the devilish cold, I was thinking about Isis, how sh thought I was so reckless. How she told me that one day we'd meet up again, And thing would be different the next time we wed. If I only hang on and just be her friend. I still can't remember all the best things she said. We came to the pyramids all embedde in ice. He said "There's a body I'm trying to find, If I carry it out it'll fetch a good price." Twas then that I knew what he had on his mind. The wind it was howling and the snow was outrageous. We chopped throught he night and we chopped throught he dawn. When he died I was hopong that it wasn't contagious, But I made up my mind that I had to go on. I broke into the tomb but the casket was empty There were no jewels no nothing, I felt I'd been had. When I saw that my partner was just being friendly, When I took up his offer I must-a been mad I picked up his body and I dragged it inside, Threw down into the hole and I put back the cover. I said a quick prayer and I felt satified Then I rode back to Isis just to tell her I love her. She was there in the meadow where the creek used to rise. Blinded by sleep and in need of a bed. I came in from the East with the sun in my eyes. I cursed one time then rode on ahead. She said "Where ya been?" I said "No place special." She said "You look different." I said "Well I guess." She said "You been gone." I said "That's only natural." She said "You gonna stay." I said "Well if you want me to yes." Isis oh Isis you're a mystical child What drives me to you is what drives me insane I still can remember the way that you smiled On the fifth day of May in the drizziling rain.

I figured this out a few years back when I bought the video "Don't Look Back". You see Dylan detune and some fingerings when he plays "Baby Blue" for Donovan in the hotel. (By the way, in "Don't Look Back" Dylan capos 2, but Donovan's guitar is tuned 1/2 tone below concert, so capo 1 to play along with the video.) Subteranean Homesick Blues version Capo 4, top E tuned down to C Note-> CADGBe ++++++ C: 032010 Csus4: 033010 (add the little finger on the 4th string) G: 220000 (actually an Em7, but this is what he plays for G) F: 003211 Dm: 200231 (use the thumb to fret the 6th string) E: x22100 (or maybe E7: x22130) (Be sure to strum the 6th string to keep the distinctive droning C note going.) Intro: C and Csus4 (hammering onto the 4th string at the 2nd fret) G F C You must leave now, take what you need, you think will last G F C But whatever you wish to keep, you better grab it fast Dm F C Yonder stands your orphan with his gun Dm F C Crying like a fire in the sun E(7) F G Look out the saints are coming through Dm F C And it's all over now, Baby Blue. The highway is for gamblers, better use your sense. Take what you have gathered from coincidence. The empty-handed painter from your streets Is drawing crazy patterns on your sheets. This sky, too, is folding under you And it's all over now, Baby Blue. All your seasick sailors, they are rowing home. Your empty handed armies, they're all going home. The lover who just walked out your door Has taken all his blankets from the floor. The carpet, too, is moving under you And it's all over now, Baby Blue. Leave your stepping stones behind, something calls for you. Forget the dead you've left, they will not follow you. The vagabond who's rapping at your door Is standing in the clothes that you once wore. Strike another match, go start anew And it's all over now, Baby Blue.

Fools rush in where angels fear to tread, Both of their futures so full of dread, You don't show one. Shedding off one more layer of skin. Keeping one step ahead of the persecutor within. Chorus You're a man of the mountains, you can walk on the clouds, Manipulator of crowds, You're a dream twister. You go to Sodom and Gomorrah, but what do you care? Ain't nobody there would want to marry your sister. A friend to the martyr, a friend to the woman of shame. You look into the fiery furnace - see the rich man without any name. Chorus Well the book of Leviticus and Deuteronomy, The law of the jungle and the sea, Are your only teachers. In the smoke of the twilight --- on a milk-white steed, Michelangelo indeed could have carved out your features. Resting in the fields far from the turbulent space. Half asleep neath the stars with a small dog licking your face. Chorus Well the (mafia?) man stalkin' the sick and the lame, Preacher man seeks the same, Who'll get there first is uncertain. Matchsticks and water cannons --- teargas, padlocks, Molotav cocktails and rocks, Behind every curtain. False-hearted judges dyin' in the webs that they spin. Only a matter of time til night comes steppin' in. Chorus It's a shadowy world - skies are slippery grey, A woman just gave birth to a prince today, And dressed him in scarlet. He'll put the priest in his pocket - put the blade to the heat, Take the motherless children off the street, And place them at the feet of a harlot. Oh Jokerman you know what he wants. Oh Jokerman you don't show any response. Chorus Be seeing you, Kelwyn. _________ He said that's alright babe, I love you too. But we were Tangled Up In Blue. - Bob Dylan

A slow melodic solo in Em pentatonic can really get the crowd into it. We also use it for guest vocalists, if we can't find any other song to do together. The problem has been that the tune is too short...with only two lyrics. So I've added two more lyrics to finish it off a little better. The tune was originally from a movie and is sung while the sheriff lay dying. So picture the good guy with his white hat on the dusty ground in his final moments of life...reflecting on the life he knew. The two extra verses are phrased exactly like the previous two. Forget about other versions of the tune you've heard...make it your own version...with your own style and flare. Knocking on Heaven's Door -Bob Dylan G D Am7 Mama, take this badge off of me...

Note also that it is played with chords moving down the frets in the "Lay lady lay"-part: A in 5th fret C#m in 4th fret G in 3rd Bm in 2nd. One should also note the use of Asus4 in the B-part. ******************************

Weiss" <weis0010@gold.tc.umn.edu> This is my approximation of how this song is played: Masters of War -- Bob Dylan Am Am7 Am Am Am Am7 Am Come you masters of war Am Am Am7 Am You that build the big guns Am Am Am7 Am You that build the death planes Am Am Am7 Am You that build all the bombs Am Am Am7 Am You that hide behind walls Am Am Am7 Am You that hide behind desks Am C G F Am Am7 Am I just want you to know I can see through your masks And the song just continues in that vein for the rest of the verses: You that never have done nothin' but build to destroy You play with my world like it's your little toy You put a gun in my hand then you hide from my eyes Then you turn and run farther when the fast bullets fly Like Judas of old you lie and deceive A world war can't be won, and you want me to believe But I see through your eyes and I see through your brain Like I see through the water that runs down my drain You that fasten all the triggers for the others to fire Then you sit back and watch while the death count gets higher You hide in your mansions while the young people's blood Flows out of their bodies and gets buried in the mud You've thrown the worst fear that can ever be hurled Fear to bring children into the world For threatening my baby, unborn and unnamed You ain't worth the blood that runs in your veins How much do I know to talk out of turn You might say that I'm young, you might say I'm unlearned But there's one thing I know, though I'm younger than you Even Jesus would never forgive what you do Let me ask you one question: is your money that good? Will it buy you forgiveness? Do you think that it could? I think you will find when your death takes its toll All the money you made won't ever buy back your soul And I hope that you die and your death will come soon I'll follow your casket through the pale afternoon And I'll watch while you're lowered into your death bed Then I'll stand over your grave till I'm sure that you're dead *Corrections to lyrics or chords would be most welcome.* -- *"Do you ever get the feeling that the story's too damn real and* *in the present tense? Or that everybody's on the stage and it* *seems like you're the only person sitting in the audience?"* * -Ian Anderson * * Something to think about, * * Julie Gladman jgladman@uoguelph.ca * Date: Tue, 9 Apr 96 21:24:06 PDT From: np95fc@mail.telepac.pt (Dolo) Subject: TAB: Masters of War by Bob Dylan Masters of War I tried playing the version on Harmony Central.

F G C F Hey, Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me, C F G C In the jingle jangle morning I'll come following you. F G C F Though I know that evenings empire has returned into sand, C F Vanished from my hand, C F G Left me blindly here to stand but still not sleeping. F G C F My weariness amazes me, I'm branded on my feet, C F I have no one to meet, C F G And the ancient empty street's too dead for dreaming. Take me on a trip upon your magic swirling ship. My senses have been stripped, May hands can't feel to grip, My toes too numb to step, Wait only for my bootheels to be wandering. I'm ready to go anywhere, I'm ready for to fade, Into my own parade. Cast your dancing spell my way, I promise to go under it. Though you might hear laughing, spinning, swinging madly across the sun, It's not aimed at anyone, It's just escaping on the run, And but for the sky there are no fences facing. And if you hear vague traces of skipping reels of rhyme, To your tambourine in time. It's just a ragged clown behind, I wouldn't pay it any mind, It's just a shadow you're seeing that he's chasing. Take me disappearing through the smoke rings of my mind. Down the foggy ruins of time, far past the frozen leaves, The haunted frightened trees, Out to the windy bench, Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow. Yes to dance beneath the diamond sky with one hand waving free, Silhouetted by the sea, Circled deep beneath the waves, Let me forget about today until tomorrow. ************************************************************************ * "Here's a song that I like to play. * * Print it out, play it and pass it around. * * If you like it, send me one of your favourites." * * * * Jeffrey Goffin Internet: jgoffin@acs.ucalgary.ca * * Calgary, Alberta, Canada FidoNet: 1:134/160 * ************************************************************************ From: Harlan L Thompson <harlant@uhunix.uhcc.Hawaii.Edu> MR.

One More Cup of Coffee Bob Dylan and Jacques Levy Am Your Breath is sweet, your eyes are like G Two jewels in the sky F Your back is straight your hair is smooth E On the pillow where you lie. Am But I don't sense affection G No gratitude or love. F E Your loyalty is not me but to the stars above Chourus : F E One more cup of coffee for the road. F E One more cup of coffee for I go, NC Am G F E To the valley below. Your daddy he's an outlaw And a wanderer by trade. He'll teach you how to pick an choose And how to throw the blade. And he oversees his kingdom So no stranger does intrude. His voice it trembles as he calls out For another plate of food Chorus Your sister sees the future Like your momma and yourself. You've never learned to read or write There's no books upon your shelf. And your pleasure know no limits Your voice is like a meadow larks. But your heart is like an ocean Mysterious and dark. Chours: Kelwyn He said thats alright Babe I love you too. But we were tangled up in blue.

Tell me, the trouble tell once to my ear, Turn, turn, turn again, Joliet prison and ninety-nine years. Turn, turn to the rain and the wind. Oh what's the charge of how this came to be, Turn, turn, turn again, Manslaughter in the highest of degree. Turn, turn to the rain and the wind. I sat down and wrote the best words I could write, Turn, turn, turn again, Explaining to the judge I'd be there on Wednesday night. Turn, turn to the rain and the wind. Without a reply I left by the moon, Turn, turn, turn again, And was in his chambers by the next afternoon. Turn, turn to the rain and the wind. Could ya tell me the facts? I said without fear, Turn, turn, turn again, That a friend of mine would get ninety-nine years. Turn, turn to the rain and the wind. A crash on the highway flew the car to a field, Turn, turn, turn again, There was four persons killed and he was at the wheel. Turn, turn to the rain and the wind. But I knew him as good as I'm knowin' myself, Turn, turn, turn again, And he wouldn't harm a life that belonged to someone else. Turn, turn to the rain and the wind. The judge spoke out of the side of his mouth, Turn, turn, turn again, Sayin' the witness who saw he left little doubt. Turn, turn to the rain and the wind. That may be true he's got a sentence to serve, Turn, turn, turn again, But ninety-nine years he just don't deserve. Turn, turn to the rain and the wind. Too late, too late for his case it is sealed Turn, turn, turn again, His sentence is passed and it cannot be repealed. Turn, turn to the rain and the wind. But he ain't no criminal and his crime it is none, Turn, turn, turn again, What happened to him could happen to anyone. Turn, turn to the rain and the wind. And at that the judge jerked forward and his face it did freeze, Turn, turn, turn again, Sayin' "Could you kindly leave my office now, please." Turn, turn to the rain and the wind. Well his eyes looked funny and I stood up so slow, Turn, turn, turn again, With no other choice except but for to go. Turn, turn to the rain and the wind. I walked down the hallway and I heard his door slam, Turn, turn, turn again, I walked down the courthouse stairs and I could not understand. Turn, turn to the rain and the wind. And I played my guitar through the night to the day, Turn, turn, turn again, And the only tune my guitar could play Was "Old cruel rain and the wind."

CORRECTION TO RAINY DAY WOMAN #12 and 35 BY Bob Dylan: Submitted by: Nick Sprague (nws103@psu.edu) The A* progression should be moved up one fret it since it is A# not A. This makes the F#* into G* and so on for the rest of the progression. The line "But I would not feel so all alone" is also slightly off. The progression for that is moved up to a C* to start it. This means that the first chord is C* (10,11,10,x,x,x) the second chord is (11,10,11,10,x,x), the third chord is (10,8,10,9,x,x) and the fourth is (8,8,9,10,10).

(verse with harp) Well Willie had a heart of gold and this I know is true He supported all his children and all their mothers too He wore no wings and fancy things that other gamblers wore He spread his money far and wide to help the sick and poor When you played your cards with Willie you never really knew Whether he was bluffin or whether he was true He won a fortune from a man who folded in his chair The man he left a diamond flush Willie didnt even have a pair It was late one evening during a poker game A man lost all his money said Willie was to blame He shot poor Willie through the head which was a tragic fate Willies cards fell on the floor they were aces backed with eights So all you ramblin gamblers where ever you might be The moral of the story is very plain to see Make your money while you can before you have to stop Cause when you pull that dead mans hand your gamblin days are up.

#----------------------------------PLEASE NOTE---------------------------------# #This file is the author's own work and represents their interpretation of the # #song. You may only use this file for private study, scholarship, or research. # #------------------------------------------------------------------------------## Date: Fri, 29 Sep 95 16:39:38 EDT From: Winston Campbell <jieuryli@eden.rutgers.edu> Subject: SENOR (Tales of Yankee Power) by Bob Dylan This is the sixth song off of Dylan~s underrated -Street Legal- album. I happen to love the song (and some of the album, itself) to death. Anyway, what one should remember about this is that there are a lot of bass walk- downs in this song, and they are slow, as is the song. What I mean, for example, is that, say the song moves from C to Am, the bass goes C, B, A (like with what any normal bassist would do). I know you may be thinking, what does this have to do with chord progression that he is about to transcribe. Well, sometimes there is a feeling in the song that more than one chord is being played and that is normally the bass walking down. I may seem silly stating this but trust me... Or you could just ignore this whole paragraph (as would what I would do if I were reading it). Another thing about this transcription is that I had a very hard time understanding Mr. Dylan~s lyrics especially in the bridges. So the lyrics are not exactly what they appear to be. For a more better interpretation of the lyrics, one should buy or take out of the library the Bob Dylan lyric book (which was featured in that awful movie, you know what I~m talking about). Anyway: Am Senor, Em Senor, F C Can you tell me where we heading? Am Lincoln County Road or Armageddon? G F Seems like I been down this way before Dm Am Is there any truth in that, Senor? Am Senor, Em Senor, F C Do you know where she~s hiding? Am How long are we gonna be riding? G F How long must I keep my eyes glued to the door? Dm Am Will there be any comfort here, Senor? C Em There~s a wicked wind still blowing on that upper deck F Am* There~s an iron cross still hanging down from around her neck C Em There~s a marching band still playing in their vacant lot F Am* Where she held me in her arms one time and said -forget what we got- Am Senor, Em Senor, F C I can see the painted wagon Am Smell the tail of a dragon G F Can~t stand the suspense anymore Dm Am Can you tell me who to contact here, Senor? Instrumental: all of the verse chords with the cool mandolin C Em Well the last thing I remember before they stripped and kneeled F Am* Was a train load of fools born down in a Maganatic(?) field C Em The gypsy, where he broke a pike and a flashing ring F Am* He say, -Son this ain~t a dream no more, it~s the real thing- Am Senor, Em Senor, F C You know their hearts here are hard as leather Am Well give me a minute, let me get it together G F Just gotta pick myself up off the floor Dm Am I~m ready when you are, Senor? Another Instrumental like the First Instrumental Am Senor, Em Senor, F C Let~s overturn these tables Am Disconnect these cables G F This place don~t make sense to me no more Dm Am Can you tell me what we~re waiting for, Senor? The song fades out and ends on the verse chords and that is about it. The Am* chords are played by striking the Am chord, then you release all your fingers so that you strike all open strings (except for the low E and A strings), then you strike back on the Am chord. It may not be accurate but that is how I make sense out of that part of the song). Feel free to email me and we can discuss why Bob Dylan rushes his lyrics while playing in concert, making his songs lose all of their bite. (Or maybe it's just me). Oh yeah, I must not disrespect the Spanish language by not nothing that there is a tilda over the "n" in Senor. That is all.

Nntp-Posting-Host: cantua.canterbury.ac.nz X-Newsreader: Tin 1.1 PL3 Lines: 132 Shelter From the Storm By Bob Dylan D 'Twas in another life time, G D One of toil and blood. When blackness was a virtue G And the road was full of mud. D I came in from the wilderness, G A creature void of form. D "Come in" she said, "I'll give you, G Shelter from the storm." And if I pass this way again, You can rest assured, I'll always do my best for her On that I give my word. In a world of steel eyed death and men Who are fighting to be warm, Come in she said, I'll give you Shelter from the storm. Not a word was spoke between us. There was little risk involved. everything up to that point, Had been left unresolved. Try imagining a place Where it's always safe and warm Come in she said I'll give you Shelter from the storm. I was burned out from exhaustion I was buried in the hail. Poisoned in the bushes An' blown out on the trail Hunted like a crocodile, Ravaged in the corn Come in she said I'll give you Shelter from the storm Suddenly I turned around And she was standing there With silver bracelets on her wrists And flowers in her hair. She walked up to me so gracefully And took my crown of thorns Come in she said I'll give you, Shelter from the storm. Now there's a wall between us Something has been lost. I took too much for granted I got my signals crossed Just to think that all began On an uneventfull morn Come in she said I'll give you Shelter from the storm Well the deputy walks on hard nails And the preacher rides a mount But nothing really matters It's doom alone that counts And the one-eyed undertaker He blows a futile horn Come in she said I'll give you Shelter from the storm I've heard newborn babies wailin' Like a mornin' dove And old men with broken teeth Stranded without love. Do I understand your question, man Is it hopeless and forlorn. Come in she said I'll give you Shelter from the storm. In a little hill top village I gambled for my clothes I bargained for salvation And they gave me a leathal dose. I offered up my innocence And got repaid with scorn Come in she said I'll give you Shelter from the storm Well I'm livin' in a foreign country But I'm bound to cross the line. Beauty walk a razors edge, Someday I'll make it mine. If I could only turn the clock back To when God and her were born Come in she said I'll give you Shelter from the storm. Be seeing you, Kelwyn. _________ He said that's alright babe, I love you too. But we were Tangled Up In Blue. - Bob Dylan

F Dm I'd ask him what the matter was Bb C7 But I know that he don't talk. Bb F And the ladies treat me kindly Dm F And furnish me with tape Dm F But deep inside my heart Bb F I know I can't escape Am Oh Mama, Can this really be the end F C Dm To be stuck inside of Mobile F Bb F with the Memphis blues again Well, Shakespear, he's in the alley With his pointed shoes and his bells. Speaking to a french girl, Who says she knows me well. And I would send a message To find out if she's talked, Post the post office has been stolen And the mail box is locked. Oh Mama Can this really be th end To be stuck inside of Mobile With the Memphis blus again. Mona tried to tell me To stay far away from the train line. She said that all the railroad men Drink your blood like wine. An' I said "Oh, I didn't know that But then again there's only one I've met An' he just smoked my eyelids An' punched my cigarette" Oh Mama Can this really be th end To be stuck inside of Mobile With the Memphis blus again. Grandpa died last week And now he's buried in the rock But everybody talk about How badly they were shocked. But me I expected it to happen I knew he'd lost control When he built a fire on main street And shot it full of holes. Oh Mama Can this really be th end To be stuck inside of Mobile With the Memphis blus again. Now the senator can down here Showing everyone his gun. Handing out free tickets To the wedding of his son. An' me I nearly got busted An wouldn't it be my luck To get caught without a ticket And be discovered beneath a truck Oh Mama Can this really be th end To be stuck inside of Mobile With the Memphis blus again. Now the preacher looked so baffled When I asked him why he dressed With twenty pounds of headlines Stapled to his chest But he cursed when I proved to him Then I whispered not even you can hide. You see you're just like me I hope your satisfied Oh Mama Can this really be th end To be stuck inside of Mobile With the Memphis blus again. Now the rainman gave men two cures Then he said "Jump right in" The one was Texas medicine The other railroad gin. An like a fool I mixed them An' it strangled up my mind An' now people just get uglier An' I have no sense of time. Oh Mama Can this really be th end To be stuck inside of Mobile With the Memphis blus again. When Ruthie says come see her In her honkey-yonk lagoon, Where I can watch her waltz for free 'Neath her Panamanian moon. An' I say, "Aw come on now You must know about my dedutante." An' she says, "Your debutante knows just what you need But I know what you want." Oh Mama Can this really be th end To be stuck inside of Mobile With the Memphis blus again. Now the bricks lay on Grand Street Where the neon madmen climb They all fall there so perfectly. It all seems so well timed. An' here I sit so patiently Waiting to find out what price You have to pay to get out of Going through all these things twice Oh Mama Can this really be th end To be stuck inside of Mobile With the Memphis blus again. Be seeing you, Kelwyn. _________ He said that's alright babe, I love you too. But we were Tangled Up In Blue. - Bob Dylan

This is a fairly difficult song to get to sound right. The chords are simple, though (blues progression in A). I strum the chords, alternating the bass line throughout (play A with an an A and E bass, D with a D and A bass, E with an E and B bass) ----------8<-------------------8<--------------------------- Subterranean Homesick Blues by Bob Dylan A A Johnny's in the basement mixin' up the medicine, I'm on the pavement, thinkin' 'bout the government The man in a trenchcoat badge (??) got laid off, Says he's got a bad cough, wants to get it paid off D D Look out kid, theres something you did, A God knows when, but you're doin' it again. You better duck down the alleyway, lookin' for a new friend. E The man in the 'coonskin cap in a pigpen A Wants 11 dollar bills, you only got 10. Maggie calls fleetfoot (??) face full 'o black soot, Talking at the heat, put (??) plants in the bed, but (??) The phones tapped anyway, Maggie says the man he say, They must bust in early May, orders from the DA. Look out kid, don't matter what ch' ya did, Walk on your tiptoes, don't tie no bows Better stay away from those 'ho carry 'round a fire hose. Keep a clean nose, 'n wash of plain clothes, You don't need a weather man to know which way the wind blows. Uhh..Get sick, get well, hang around the inkwell, Hang bail, hot tail, if anything its gonna sell, Try hard, get bought, get back, write braille, Get jail, jump bail, join the army if ya fail. Look out kid, your gonna get hit, by Losers, cheaters, six time users, hangin' round the theaters, Girl by the whrilpool's lookin' for a new fool, Don't follow leaders or watch the parkin' meters. Ohh..Get born, keep warm, short pants, romance, Learn to dance, get dressed, get blessed, try to be a success, Please her, please him, buy 'er gifts, don't steal, don't lift Twenty years o' schoolin' and they put ya on the day shift, Look out kid, they keep it all hid, Better jump down a manhole, light yourself a candle, Don't wear sandles, and try to force a scandal, Don't want to be a bum, you'd better chew gum, The pump don't work cuz the vandals took the handle. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Sacha Michel Mallais sacha@global-village.net http://www.global-village.net/sacha The bird of paradise alights only upon the hand that does not grasp.

A B E G#m A B E But you who philosophize disgrace and criticize all fears, A B E C#m7 Take the rag away from your face. A B E Now ain't the time for your tears. William Zantzinger, who at twenty-four years Owns a tobacco farm of six hundred acres With rich wealthy parents who provide and protect him And high office relations in the politics of Maryland, Reacted to his deed with a shrug of his shoulders And swear words and sneering, and his tongue it was snarling, In a matter of minutes on bail was out walking. But you who philosophize disgrace and criticize all fears, Take the rag away from your face. Now ain't the time for your tears. Hattie Carroll was a maid of the kitchen. She was fifty-one years old and gave birth to ten children Who carried the dishes and took out the garbage And never sat once at the head of the table And didn't even talk to the people at the table Who just cleaned up all the food from the table And emptied the ashtrays on a whole other level, Got killed by a blow, lay slain by a cane That sailed through the air and came down through the room, Doomed and determined to destroy all the gentle. And she never done nothing to William Zantzinger. But you who philosophize disgrace and criticize all fears, Take the rag away from your face. Now ain't the time for your tears. In the courtroom of honor, the judge pounded his gavel To show that all's equal and that the courts are on the level And that the strings in the books ain't pulled and persuaded And that even the nobles get properly handled Once that the cops have chased after and caught 'em And that the ladder of law has no top and no bottom, Stared at the person who killed for no reason Who just happened to be feelin' that way without warnin'. And he spoke through his cloak, most deep and distinguished, And handed out strongly, for penalty and repentance, William Zantzinger with a six-month sentence. Oh, but you who philosophize disgrace and criticize all fears, Bury the rag deep in your face. For now's the time for your tears.

D E7 A We sit here stranded, though we're all doin' our best to deny it E A And Louise holds a handful of rain, temptin' you to defy it D A Lights flicker from the opposite loft D A In this room the heat pipes just cough D The country music station plays soft A E7 But there's nothing, really nothing to turn off A D E7 A Just Louise and her lover so entwined D A E7 A D A And these visions of Johanna that conquer my mind. A D E7 A In the empty lot where the ladies play blind man's bluff with the key chain D E7 A And the allnight girls, they whisper of escapades out on the "D" train E We can hear the night watchman click his flashlight A Ask himself if it's him or them that's realy insane D A Louise, she's allright, she's just near D A She's delicate and seems like the mirror D But she just makes it all too concice and too clear A E7 That Johanna's not here A D E7 A The ghost of 'lectricity howls in the bones of her face D A E7 A D A Where these visions of Johanna have now taken my place. A D E7 A Now, little boy lost, he takes himself so seriously D E7 A He brags of his misery, he likes to live dangerously E A And when bringing her name up He speaks of a farewell kiss to me D A He's sure got a lotta gall D A to be so useless and all D Muttering small talk at the wall A E7 while I'm in the hall A D E7 A How can I explain? Oh, it's so hard to get on D A E7 A D A And these visions of Johanna, they kept me up past the dawn. A D E7 A Inside the museums, Infinity goes up on trial D E7 A Voices echo this is what salvation must be like after a while E A But Mona Lisa musta had the highway blues You can tell by the way she smiles D A See the primitive wallflower freeze D A When the jellyfaced women all sneeze D A E7 Hear the one with the mustache say, "Jeeze, I can't find my knees" A D E7 A Oh, jewels and binoculars hang from the head of the mule D A E7 A D A But these visions of Johanna they make it all seem so cruel. A D E7 A The peddler now speaks to the countess who's pretending to care for him Sayin' "Name me someone that's not a parasite D E7 A and I'll go out and say a prayer for him." But like Louise E always says, "Ya can't look at much, can ya man?" As she, herself, pre A -pares for him D A And Madonna, she still has not showed D D We see this empty cage now corrode D A Where her cape of the stage once had flowed D A The fiddler, he now steps to the road D A He writes ev'rything's been returned which was owed D A E7 On the back of the fish truck that loads While my conscience explodes A D E A The harmonicas play the skeleton keys and the rain D A E7 A And these visions of Johanna are now all that remain. ------- Typed by Petter Larsson , larpe@nts.mh.se

Who is Bob Dylan? ==================== Bob Dylan is a singer, a guitar player, a song writer and a recording artist. Born Robert Allen Zimmerman in Hibbing Minnesota in 1941, his earliest circulating recordings date from 1958! His earliest recordings on an unofficial bootleg LP date from 1960, his first commercial release dates from 1962. He continues to write, record and perform to this day. 2. What is rec.music.dylan? =========================== Welcome! This Usenet newsgroup is devoted to the discussion of Bob Dylan, his music, and things Dylan-related. We welcome your constructive comments on nearly any issue, even if it's only tangentially associated with Bob Dylan. There is no official Dylan fan club, so small packs of Dylan fans band together to stay informed and carry on general discussion. This particular Usenet newsgroup was founded mid-1989 by Tom Buckley. Sometimes it seems that all we're interested in are upcoming tour dates and clarification of fact regarding old recordings, but there is often very interesting discussion of Dylan's lyrics themselves, a reason that no doubt many of you read this newsgroup. If you don't see the sort of discussion you want, you're encouraged to bring it up yourself! Many people criticise the content and tenor of postings on rec.music.dylan but few praise those they like. If you see a posting which is just what you like to see why not e-mail the poster privately and say so. Many good posters stop posting because they say they do not know if anyone is reading or liking what they do. The way to shape rec.music.dylan to what you want is to encourage what you like to see, and to contribute good postings yourself too! 3. Are you certain your e-mail address works? ============================================= 98% of new posters who comment that nobody has answered a query they made on rec.music.dylan turn out to have displayed an e-mail address that does not function. This is so common that it is very unlikely a correspondent answering your query will do anything once they see that mail to you bounces. One of the # best ways to test your address is to send mail to the "robot" at # bouncer@nic.near.net You should be sent two replies. If this # does not work then contact the postmaster at your site. 4. Is there a rec.music.dylan etiquette? ======================================== You should already be familiar with Usenet etiquette. If not, the newsgroups to read are news.newusers.questions and news.announce.newusers. A particularly useful document is "Emily Postnews Answers Your Questions on Netiquette" by Mark Moraes <netannounce@deshaw.com>, stored at rtfm.mit.edu in a document called "part1" in the directory /pub/usenet/news.answers/usenet/emily-postnews/ As with all newsgroups, the best recommendation is for you to sit back and read for a while before you make your first posting. That way you can get a proper feel for the newsgroup. Then you will see which postings you think are valuable and which are wasting space or preventing good discussion. rec.music.dylan is not moderated, so within reason anything goes. However, certain types of postings are generally frowned upon. These include: o Tirades against other readers of the newsgroup for their opinions. o Failure to edit subject heading when replying via the digestified mailing list [HWY61-L, see later]. Please ensure you edit the subject line when posting a followup. Anyone seeing a posting headed: SUBJECT: Re: HWY61-L Digest - 5 Mar 1995 may well choose to ignore it altogether. o Lists of favourite songs/albums, including Top Tens. This is a discussion that reappears gradually more frequently as more and more people discover rec.music.dylan. It is hard to imagine a posting with less value and information content than: My top 20 favourite Bob Dylan albums, in order of preference, are: 1. Blonde On Blonde 2. Highway 61 Revisited 3. The Times They Are A-Changin' . . 20. The Basement Tapes Tell me what yours are! If you are interested in lists of favourite song or album titles then please do NOT post them to rec.music.dylan. You are instead directed to the ALLMUSIC GUIDE [see later for details] for the views of past and present readers on this issue. Polls on favourite albums and songs are already available for hundreds of artists, including Bob Dylan. And should you wish to add your vote to those already cast then you are free to do so. [A Web page has been set up for this very task! - see later]. This is NOT to say constructive discussions about WHY you place certain songs in such high regard are not of interest. Far from it - what are we all here for if not to discuss the songs? o Using rec.music.dylan as a easy substitute for personal research. There are many resources available at your local library and over the Internet (via FTP, GOPHER, the World Wide Web and Telnet). The numerous Dylan-related areas are detailed later on in this FAQ. You are strongly encouraged to consult this extensive material before asking on the newsgroup. For example, instead of asking hundreds of people for the setlist for 12 November 1981, you could simply look it up yourself in Olof Bjorner's 1981 yearly summary (via FTP, GOPHER or the WEB) or the three or four books available at your library. If the research material proves inadequate then of course you should post your question to the newsgroup stating this is so. In such cases you are much more likely to get a response! [See later for instructions on how to access this information via the Internet]. o Bootlegs. From time to time someone posts a request for contact details of bootleg dealers. Answers to these questions should be sent by private e-mail only. To post full details to the very public forum of rec.music.dylan is to put the dealers at risk. This may be an hysterical over-reaction to the real situation, but is it not best to avoid Bob Dylan's work being the most likely target when those greedy copyright lawyers finally hit the Internet in force? We all know Bob Dylan always says yes when his lawyers ask him if they should proceed, be it a computer company, a transit authority, or a ... The objection to the posting of full trade listings is more along the lines of bandwidth wastage. If you wish to set up a trade you are best advised to send a polite e-mail message [see later]. o Lists of names of other artists in which you are also interested. This thread began a very long time ago and still odd postings appear on the subject. For those who may be interested Steven Zawid zawid@eden.rutgers.edu conducted a major poll on favourite other artists and he would be interested to hear from you in e-mail as he builds up his statistics. Steven asks that you include one choice as to who your favourite non-Dylan artist is. 5. How do I access rec.music.dylan? =================================== If you have no access to Usenet News but you do have Internet access then you could join a FreeNet in order to make use of free Usenet News access. For example: telnet yfn2.ysu.edu username: visitor follow the instructions for becoming a registered user and then read rec.music.dylan whenever you please. The majority of readers access this group through a newsreader (such as rn, trn, tin or the like on Unix systems), but there is also a digestified format that is sent to many others via email. If you'd rather read in that format (a long email sent to you once or twice daily) this information will be of use to you: -- "HWY61-L Digest". The mailing list is owned and maintained by Maureen LeBlanc. (If you experience any problems with the list or have any questions then e-mail Maureen at HWY61-L-Request@UBVM.cc.buffalo.edu) To post an article to rec.music.dylan you need to use this address: hwy61-l@ubvm.cc.buffalo.edu This is the ONLY address via which your messages will appear on rec.music.dylan and the mirroring Digest. There is a third address of which users of the Mailing list need to be aware. listserv@ubvm.cc.buffalo.edu It is via this address that users communicate with the automated LISTSERV to subscribe, unsubscribe and alter options. ALL commands should be sent to THIS address. Leave the 'subject' blank and on the first line of the body of the message type your command. (If you experience problems try omitting your ".sig" because the Listserv may be trying to interpret it as commands.) Here are the various commands you can send (all to the above address): (a) To receive a help file on how to work with the listserv: HELP (b) To subscribe to the mailing list: SUBSCRIBE HWY61-L firstname lastname (c) To unsubscribe from the mailing list: SIGNOFF HWY61-L (d) The default setting is to send out the list in digestified format. If you would prefer to be sent rec.music.dylan as-it-happens, ie. each posting is sent to you as an individual message, then issue this command: SET HWY61-L MAIL To return to digestified format, issue: SET HWY61-L DIGEST (e) If you wish to suspend receipt of messages from the list for any period of time you do not need to unsubscribe. Simply set your selected option to 'no mail' by issuing: SET HWY61-L NOMAIL To resume delivery again, issue: SET HWY61-L DIGEST -- If you lack Usenet news access and want to post (without having to subscribe to the mailing list), simply e-mail your posting to: hwy61-l@ubvm.cc.buffalo.edu or rec-music-dylan@cs.utexas.edu ^ ^ N.B. - NOT . or _ / hyphens not full stops or underscores! 6. Glossary of terms and acronyms common to this newsgroup. =========================================================== All areas of knowledge develop jargon and acronyms which inevitably serve to keep outsiders out and to confuse newcomers. Medical doctors complicate the simplest things with needlessly difficult terms and abbreviations, computer experts often make the easy inaccessible to newcomers with obscure terms and abbreviations by trying to 'simplify' communications, management consultants... Well, you get the picture. People with a serious and debilitating Dylan habit can also develop these tendencies. Watch for the following obscure terms... #Dylan = The name of the Dylan channel on irc. BoB = Blonde on Blonde [1966] [not a typo for "Bob"!] BotT = Blood on the Tracks [1974] BIABH = Bringing It All Back Home [1965] boot = bootleg bootleg = circulating copy of officially unreleased material in any form. The term is probably derived from 'bootleg' liquor, which was sometimes smuggled in bottles strapped to one's leg during Prohibition in the United States, 1918-1933. Bootleg Series = The Bootleg Series 1961-1991, Rare and Unreleased, Volumes 1-3 [1991] - not to be confused with 'bootleg' above, this is an official release that reveals many songs and performances from throughout Dylan's career that were previously available only on bootleg media. The liner notes of this boxed set mention that further volumes would be released, but no reliable source has been able to determine if and when this might actually happen... BTW = By the way... EDLIS = Exchange of Dylan Lyrics - Internet Service [see question 8, below, for more information on EDLIS] GAIBTY = Good As I Been To You [1992] H61R = Highway 61 Revisited [1965] Hurricane = The lead-off single from Desire [1976], which tells Dylan's rather loose interpretation of the murder trial of boxer Rubin "Hurricane" Carter; Carter is today a free man in Canada after having endured a convoluted series of mistrials and legal wrangling. IMO = In my opinion... IMHO = In my humble opinion... irc = Internet Relay Chat, an international live real-time conferencing system with a channel called #Dylan. [see question #9, below] JWH = John Wesley Harding [1967] This album (and its title track) were mis-named after outlaw John Wesley Hardin. Dylan's song has very little to do with the story of the real Hardin; instead, it's basically just a spin-off of Woody Guthrie's "Pretty Boy Floyd." Some Dylan fans note the religious bent of this album and claim that the initials 'JWH' really refer to the Judeo-Christian deity... Krogsgaard = Krogsgaard's 1991 reference book, Positively Bob Dylan [listed below in question 10c]. A Krogsgaard number would be in a form such as [7/201]. This refers to item seven in the Krogsgaard listing for event 201. Badly addicted rec.music.dylan readers can be told such a number and then immediately sing the relevant item without reference to the Krogsgaard book itself! pirate = Illegal copy of officially released material. Also known as a "counterfeit". smiley = An unusual punctuation device, presumably employed only by computer-users, which looks like a sideways smiley-face: :-) A smiley usually means that a comment or article has been written in jest, and should be read accordingly. A common variant is ;-) with the 'winking' eye. There are many, many variants on the smiley, and most are used to represent the flairs of spoken language that are often hard to perceive in text. :-( tape tree = A 'pyramid' method of distributing tapes organized by someone with a good or unusual tape that begs to be circulated. That person posts an announcement to the newsgroup, asking people to send email to him to sign up. He collects the names of those interested, and creates a 'tree' such that no one has to make an excessive number of copies, and people with better tape decks make copies for those without, etc. The original tape is the 'seed'. Those who receive copies from the seed and make further copies are 'branches', and those who receive copies from branches but don't copy for anyone else are the 'leaves'. Sometimes a person who makes copies is called a 'parent' and one who receives copies is a 'child'. Each person who receives tapes is expected to send tapes of other events in return to their branch. If blanks are sent in lieu of recorded tapes, the person sending blanks is expected to send double the number of blank tapes to recorded tapes. A less common method is that the person sendng blanks is expected to pay postage for both the tapes that sent and the ones received. If trading with a DAT collector who is supplying you with an analogue cassette, one blank DAT is adequate double compensation should they not want any blank analogue cassettes from you. T-999 = Numbers like these are Townsend numbers. Townsend number = A three figure number identifying a specific bootleg CD as cited by Phill Townsend in his Strangers And Prophets [listed above], or as cited in Isis [listed above]. UTRS = Under The Red Sky [1990] WGW = World Gone Wrong [1993] WWW = World-Wide-Web [see question 5, below] ZZ = someone used to the vi editor in Unix posting from a different and unfamiliar editor trying to end their posting... 7. Is there a Bob Dylan discography available online, or some way to order Dylan CDs via Internet? ==================================================================== It is beyond the scope of this document to give a true discography for Bob Dylan, but here is a list of the standard U.S. release full- length Bob Dylan albums: Title Released CD Order # ===== ======== ========== Bob Dylan March 1962 CK 8579 The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan May 1963 CK 8786 The Times They Are A-Changin' January 1964 CK 8905 Another Side of Bob Dylan August 1964 CK 8993 Bringing it All Back Home March 1965 CK 9128 Highway 61 Revisited August 1965 CK 9189 Blonde on Blonde May 1966 CK 841 Greatest Hits March 1967# CK 9463 John Wesley Harding December 1967 CK 9604 Nashville Skyline April 1969 CK 9825 Self-Portrait June 1970 C2K 30050 New Morning October 1970 CK 30290 Greatest Hits, Vol. 2 November 1971# C2K 31120 Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid July 1973 CK 32460 Dylan November 1973^ CK 32747 Planet Waves January 1974 CK 37637 Before the Flood June 1974' C2K 37661 Blood on the Tracks January 1975 CK 33235 The Basement Tapes June 1975* C2K 33682 Desire January 1976 CK 33893 Hard Rain September 1976 CK 34349 Street Legal June 1978 CK 35453 At Budokan July 1978'~ C2K 36067 Slow Train Coming August 1979 CK 36120 Saved June 1980 CK 36553 Shot of Love August 1981 CK 37496 Infidels November 1983 CK 38819 Real Live December 1984' CK 39944 Empire Burlesque June 1985 CK 40110 Biograph October 1985# C3K 38830 Knocked Out Loaded August 1986 CK 40439 Down in the Groove May 1988 CK 40957 Traveling Wilburys Vol. 1 October 1988 Warner Bros. 9 25796-1 Dylan and the Dead February 1989' CK 45056 Oh Mercy September 1989 CK 45281 Under the Red Sky September 1990 CK 46794 Traveling Wilburys Vol. 3 October 1990 Warner Bros. 9 26324-1 Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3 March 1991@ C3T 47382 Good As I Been to You October 1992 CK 53200 World Gone Wrong October 1993 CK 57590 Greatest Hits III Unplugged April 1995 478374 2 (European) This is NOT intended to be a complete discography by any means. Check the discography file at ftp.cs.pdx.edu for more details on Bob Dylan releases available on compact disc. [see question 5 for help]. Notes: ' Live album # 'Greatest Hits' collection - *most* songs previously released ^ Recorded in 1970, outtakes from Self-Portrait * Recorded in 1967! ~ This is the Japanese release date - U.S. release was December 1978 @ Collection of previously unreleased material spanning 1961-1991... Also of interest are the 30th Anniversary Tribute Concert double-CD set; and Masterpieces, a triple-CD import collection that contains a few songs not available elsewhere on CD. To actually order CDs online, you can try the Compact Disc Connection, a California-based mail-order company. telnet cdconnection.com No password is necessary. Once you're logged in, the menus are fairly self-explanatory, and you can make purchases with your credit card. If you have a Web browser such as Netscape, Mosaic or Lynx and wish to look at CD shops on the Internet, use these URLs: ftp://netcom11.netcom.com/pub/howells/dylan.html http://cdnow.com There have been several 'best album' polls done on the music newsgroups - the most comprehensive were the 'Usenet Artist Polls' and are available by anonymous FTP from ftp.uwp.edu in /pub/music/uap (many polls done on individual artists, not just Dylan). The Dylan albums most frequently recommended by readers of r.m.d are _Highway 61 Revisited_, _Blonde on Blonde_, _Blood on the Tracks_, and _The Bootleg Series, Vols. 1-3_, although you'll find staunch fans of nearly every album... The Dylan you might like depends more on you than on the opinions of others. You could describe in reasonable detail your musical, political, religious and sexual tastes, post that on rec.music.dylan, and ask for advice... Additional material may be found at the various FTP archives [see question 5, below]. 8. Where can I find lyrics, tablature and other Bob Dylan information via Internet? ===================================================================== There are three archive sites from which information regarding Bob Dylan may be obtained by FTP [If the term "ftp" is meaningless to you then ask a local computer guru to show you what to do...]: ftp.cs.pdx.edu (Portland State University) ftp.uwp.edu (University of Wisconsin, Parkside) ftp.nevada.edu (University of Nevada) Olof's yearly summaries of Bob Dylan concerts and recordings, plus a number of transcribed interviews, concert/tape reviews, and similar documents are available by anonymous FTP from ftp.cs.pdx.edu, in the directory /pub/dylan, and are maintained by Trent Fisher. This site originated as a replacement to Anthony Kapolka's archives from the early days of rec.music.dylan, but now includes all of Olof's archives and other recent files. Lyrics to a limited number of Bob Dylan songs, plus some guitar tabs and other information by be found by anonymous FTP from ftp.uwp.edu, in pub/music/artists/d/dylan.bob. Guitar tablature to many of Dylan's songs is available by anonymous FTP from the alt.guitar.tab archives at ftp.nevada.edu, in /pub/guitar/d/Dylan.Bob, and also /pub/guitar/d/Bob.Dylan (the separate directories are probably due to an oversight or change). An anonymous FTP session begins like this - at your prompt, type: ftp ftp.uwp.edu [or whatever site you'll be getting files from] Enter 'anonymous' (without the quotes) when prompted for a login name, give your E-mail address as the password. Use either 'ls' or 'dir' and 'cd' to find your way to the proper directory. There are also a number of Dylan-related World Wide Web (WWW) pages. If you do not know what WWW is then you are best advised to ask a friend or computer technician at your site. You will need appropriate software (known as Web Browsers). Some examples: Netscape, Mosaic and Lynx (a text only version). WWW PAGES DEDICATED TO BOB DYLAN http://reality.sgi.com/employees/howells/dylan.html - "Bringing It All Back Home Page" (John Howells) - Contains tour dates, setlists and concert reviews, yearly chronicles from 1960 through 1993 (updated yearly), Frequently Asked Questions about Dylan and the internet, EDLIS Dylan Covers listing, etc. http://bob.nbr.no - "Expecting Rain" (Karl Erik Anderson) - The Bob Dylan Who's Who, The Dylan Atlas, Jokerman, 1995 setlists and concert reports, pictures, some sound clips, this FAQ, list of EDLIS agents, etc. http://www.ncl.ac.uk/~n246543/ - "Ragged Clown" (Ben Taylor) - Contains interviews, old postings to the newsgroup rec.music.dylan, EDLIS Civil Rights articles on "Hattie Carroll" etc., links to all Dylan areas on the Web, etc. http://www.music.sony.com/Music/ArtistInfo/BobDylan.html - Sony's Bob Dylan page.

GOPHER SITE: gopher://allmusic.ferris.edu/00/pop/d/dy/dylan.b - All Music Guide. - This is the location of the Bob Dylan entry. It includes a mini- bio', list of albums and their tracks, reviews and ratings. If you cannot find transcribed music online, you should be able to find music to all the released albums from good music stores and suppliers. The most recommended book source is "Lyrics 1962-1985". The lyrics 'database' on "Highway 61 Interactive" CDROM, released 1995, covers virtually all of the lyrics from this book, plus all albums up to 1995. Many songbooks can also be purchased, for example the book for Good As I Been to You is available from Special Rider Music Sales, 8/9 Frith St., London W1V 5TZ, England. 9. Is there some way that I can get lists of Bob Dylan concert tapes and recordings from past years? ==================================================================== There is currently one electronic document that makes a good reference guide, plus one essential book: #1 - If you've got a little disk space to spare [approx. 1.5 megabytes], you can download Olof's year-by-year Bob Dylan archive - which lists Dylan's public appearances and recordings, gives handy reference tables of songs played on tour, and even lists recommended tapes by tour! The best part is that it's free for your own personal use. Don't try printing it out unless you've got the time & ribbons - the combined total of all the files would be on the order of 600 pages... How do you get it? ftp ftp.cs.pdx.edu, in the /pub/dylan directory, the 1960.Z through 1993.Z files (they are compressed). #2 - There is a book called "Positively Bob Dylan" by Michael Krogsgaard (this book is frequently referred to simply as 'Krogsgaard' on this newsgroup). This tome numbers Dylan's circulating performances and lists the songs performed at each and every known circulating Bob Dylan recording through early 1991. There are always gaps and changes as new tapes surface, but this book is essential to the serious collector! It provides a fast, easy reference for identifying tapes and so on. The main disadvantage of such a serious book is that it costs about US$55. See item 11c below for more information. There will shortly be a third option: #3 - If you have an IBM PC compatible "DylanBase" may be of interest. This is a DOS computer program designed by Keith Charles Marsh, with data collated by Chris Cooper. Its objective is the same as Krogsgaard's book, to detail all circulating (and uncirculating) recordings. Regular updates are planned to maintain the accuracy and completeness of the database. To find out more you can purchase a demo disk, the price of which is fully refundable against the final product. For this or other information write to: Keith Charles Marsh, 17 Stanley Road, Wellingborough, NN8 1DY, ENGLAND. At time of writing (4 July 1995) the release of "DylanBase" is "imminent". 10. When and where will Bob Dylan be performing next? ===================================================== Since official announcements from Dylan's publicity office regarding tour dates are rare, we have to rely on local people to look for advertisements or call ticket agencies and then to inform the rest of us. If you hear of an upcoming concert in your area, please tell us! Set-lists from shows that you have seen recently are also appreciated, even if you don't know the titles of all the songs that were played. Tour dates are usually posted piece-meal to the newsgroup, and sometimes these postings will contain conflicting or confusing information. If your local ticket agency has no knowledge of a concert date that you saw announced here, don't give up hope. Agencies such as TicketMaster frequently do not know about particular shows until a few days before they are authorized to sell tickets for that show. Some concert dates start out as rumors and never materialize, but many rumors do become fact. Be patient. There is no mail-order for Bob Dylan concert tickets. There are also Dylan hotlines you can ring on the telephone for the latest information on Bob Dylan events: USA: 303-243-8025 (The Rolling Tomes Hotline - the operator will ask you to enter the "hotline access number" located in the lower right corner of the back cover of the current Rolling Tomes catalogue. So you must either have seen the catalogue or have contact with someone who has... See question 10, below. A touch-tone telephone is required. The recording is updated at least weekly, more often when news warrants it.) UK: The Homer 'Warmline', maintained by Andrew Muir. Although this used to be subscription-only, it is now open to all, free of charge. The number is 0171 385 6119 (if dialling from the UK) or +44 171 385 6119 (if dialling from abroad). UK: Wanted Man offers a hotline service to Telegraph subscribers [see part two of the FAQ for subscription details]. The EDLIS Tours & Tickets agent compiles all the above info and posts updated tour schedules to rec.music.dylan. 11. What is EDLIS? ================== The Exchange Dylan Lyrics - Internet Service is an Internet wide conspiracy to make available Dylan lyrics for the purposes of research and/or private study. Lyrics available are restricted to a reasonable proportion. Any copying to evade purchase is wrong. EDLIS consists of a number of loosely affiliated individuals who have chosen to horde and distribute Bob Dylan information. This service includes, but is not limited to, information regarding: Bob Dylan song lyrics, versions of Bob Dylan songs performed by other artists, bootleg recordings, and tape trees. If you post a request for specific lyrics (or for detailed boot CD information) on rec.music.dylan you might find an EDLIS agent answers your needs magically in your e-mail box. In return, EDLIS is always in need of transcribed lyrics and information on compact discs, old and new. If you are able to type in or scan Dylan lyrics not presently available on the Internet, please do so - the only reason that EDLIS sends you anything is because others have contributed in the past! 12. What if I want to talk about Dylan on-line at all hours? ============================================================ If no one in the same room as you wants to chat about Dylan 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year you might think you have an insatiable desire. But there is relief! IRC! Internet Relay Chat. On Internet Relay Chat there is always an international live real-time Dylan conference - usually in English - waiting for you to join it. At your Unix prompt type: irc and once irc is up and running type: /join #Dylan and what you type after that will be seen by all the others on that channel. If all is quiet simply wait until the lull ends or learn how to invite others in (/invite), change the topic (/topic) and so on. Many arrange to meet at #dylan by prior arrangement through e-mail, setting a time to rendezvous. Bear in mind the time zones - discussion tends to ebb and flow with New Zealanders and Australians starting the day, as they begin to flag Europeans join, and Americans are last to come in, though some #dylan people keep very odd hours indeed. Treat #dylan like a Paris street cafe. If you want to be certain that stimulating, interesting people are there when you are there, bring them with you. If Bob Dylan is performing in a country you can try to see who is on from that country, such as Japan: /who *.jp And then use /invite to invite in unsuspecting irc-ers and ask them about media coverage, whether they are going to the concerts or know anyone who is, will they be taking a DAT recorder with them, etc etc etc. As with all esoteric computer matters, if the command irc is not available on your computer, simply ask a local computer guru how to ftp and compile what you need. You could also logon by telnet to a limited version of irc: telnet sci.dixie.edu 6668 Here are some other public access telnet sites for IRC on the Undernet, which is NOT the main irc but will give you a feel for a limited irc network: telnet wildcat.ecn.uoknor.edu 6677 telnet wildcat.ecn.uoknor.edu 7766 telnet skywarrior.ecn.uoknor.edu 7766 telnet skyhawk.ecn.uoknor.edu 7766 telnet skyraider.ecn.uoknor.edu 7766 telnet intruder.ecn.uoknor.edu 7766 EUROPEAN SITES telnet telnet1.eu.undernet.org 6677 telnet telnet2.eu.undernet.org 6677 VAX/VMS Users: use "telnet host.name /PORT=6677" telnet sci.dixie.edu 1 | sh So long as you have full Internet access something should be possible, and you can join in on the Dylan discussion via irc... The standard #dylan teatime in London meeting in irc is daily at: Kangerlussuaq Fairbanks 13:00 Reykjavik 07:00 16:00 Petropavlovsk Trondheim 04:00 St John's 17:00 13:30 Helsinki Charlottetown LONDON 18:00 Hibbing 12:00 16:00 Moscow Irkutsk 10:00 19:00 00:00 Greenwich Paris San Francisco Village 17:00 08:00 11:00 Lisbon Bombay Kyoto 16:00 21:30 01:00 Gallup Monrovia Singapore Honolulu 09:00 16:00 00:00 06:00 Lagos Perth Quito Rio de 17:00 00:00 11:00 Janeiro Harare Adelaide 13:00 18:00 01:30 Santiago Hobart Dunedin 12:00 02:00 04:00 (end part 1 of 2) ********************************************************************* ********************************************************************* Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ), part 2 of 2 for newsgroup rec.music.dylan Please email corrections and suggestions to: howells@csd.sgi.com ************************************************************************ Copyright 1994, 1995 Adam K.

Where can I buy Bob Dylan collectors' items? =============================================== Some of us have the good fortune to live in places that have an adequate supply of record stores, well informed collectors with the latest gab on your favorite artists, and record shows; if you aren't in such a location, you may feel out of touch. Don't fret! Even the most avid record hounds use mail-order as a reliable way to purchase books, posters, and memorabilia (not to mention information regarding new records, tours, etc...) Here are a few recommended sources: U.S.: Rolling Tomes - P.O. Box 1943, Grand Junction, Colorado 81502. Phone: 303-245-4315 Monday through Friday 10-6 Mountain time, 24 hr. fax: 303-243-8025. They accept Mastercard, Visa, checks, money orders, and international money orders drawn from a U.S. bank in U.S. funds. This is an essential source for Dylan fans in the United States and across the world - their inventory covers everything from back issues of fan magazines to books to records and videotapes. Rolling Tomes is also the distributor for several Dylan magazines, namely Homer, Isis, Look Back, On the Tracks, Rolling Thunder, and Telegraph [see question 12 for details and subscription rates]. U.S.: Goldmine Magazine - 700 E. State St., Iola, WI 54990-0001. This is a collectors forum with advertising from record dealers all over the world, published biweekly. They will send a free trial issue to you if you request one... Goldmine contains loads of mail-order information, so you'll need a few hours poring over an issue (often with a magnifying glass) to sort it all out. U.K.: My Back Pages - P.O. Box 117, Carlisle CA1 2UL. Accepts pounds sterling or US dollars by check, postal money order, or international money order. Another good source for books, and also distributes the magazine Isis. # U.K.: (New address!) Wanted Man: PO Box 307, Richmond, Surrey TW10 5AQ Distributes The Telegraph magazine. 2. What books about Dylan's life and music are available? ========================================================= The number of publications about Bob Dylan continues to grow rapidly: Here is a three-part overview of some of the better-known books, divided by subject material. This is only the tip of the iceberg - better to check a catalog or your local libraries and bookstores for greater detail. If you read the following list and think you might want to read many of these books but could never afford them, do not despair! Inform your local library of the vast, untapped multitude of popular music resources by recommending some of these titles to them. Do not be afraid; most librarians do not bite. After all, what good is a public library that does not take suggestions from its public? These books are, for the most part, well-written commentary on the life and music of one of the most significant popular songwriters of this century, and are a worthy addition to a library collection... Also, library catalogues will help you get an overview of published monographs related to Bob Dylan. A good first catalogue to check is found in California, and access is easy if you already have full Internet access. telnet melvyl.ucop.edu If this union catalogue proves inadequate investigate the "use" command by typing in "help use" from within melvyl. # Another source to check is the Library of Congress. There is a # good z39.50 www-gateway to locis (lcc) on: # http://lcweb.loc.gov/z3950/mums2.html If the hundreds of free online public access catalogues available on the Internet are not enough for you there are more sophisticated sources such as CURL, OCLC, First Search, RLIN, UTLAS, NACSIS and the like... But you will need a password and someone must pay the bill! -- 2(a). Bob Dylan biographies =========================== Bob Dylan has never been accused of over-publicizing his private life. Consequently, you will find that most of the biographies concerning him are rather spotty for large periods of time, and often contradict one another on important details. Most of the older biographies focus heavily on the years up to 1966, and are pretty thin from there onward. _Bob Dylan: An Intimate Biography_ by Anthony Scaduto, New York: New American Library, 1979 [originally published 1972]. 366 p.

ISBN: 0887331432 LCCN: 92-1769 /MN [Probably the best general studies of Dylan that have yet appeared.

Are there magazines about Dylan to which I could subscribe? ============================================================== There are several highly regarded periodicals devoted to Dylan's career - again, this is not a complete listing, but merely a guide: The Telegraph (UK - Wanted Man, P.O. Box 22, Romford, Essex RM1 2RF, 3 times a year, subscriptions currently $45/year via Rolling Tomes) is the oldest and perhaps best known Dylan fan magazine. Isis (UK - P.O. Box 132, Coventry, West Midlands CV3 5RE, bi-monthly, subscriptions currently $64.95/yr. via Rolling Tomes) is excellent for information regarding bootleg audio & video material plus a comprehensive guide to Dylan's constant touring. ICE (US, P.O. Box 3043, Santa Monica, CA 90408, monthly, subscribe directly for $30/yr in North America, $40/yr elsewhere) is a newsletter that provides information on new CDs, re-issued CDs, underground CDs, and planned releases, all from reliable sources. Again, not a Dylan magazine, but usually contains something regarding Dylan CDs... ICE can be reached by email for questions and comments regarding compact discs, as well as subscription information, at: EMAILICE@aol.com Goldmine (US, 700 E. State St, Iola, WI 54990, (715) 445-2214, FAX (715) 445-4087. Subscriptions $35/yr.) This is a record and CD collectors' publication, published twice a month, known for being a forum for bootleg buyers and sellers. Goldmine has phased out detailed advertisements from all but the largest dealers, including a crackdown on classified ads. This includes tapes and videos, but *not* CD's. Subscriptions are $35 for a year; you can call and order by Visa/MC, or mail them a check or money order. If you call them they will send you a free sample copy. On The Tracks: The Unauthorized Bob Dylan Magazine (US - published by Rolling Tomes [address above], quarterly, US subscriptions currently $24.95/yr, or $39.95/yr to also receive the monthly newsletter, Series of Dreams) Features interviews, columns by well-known Dylan commentators, such as Paul Williams, and importantly, includes the Rolling Tomes catalog within its pages. The companion newsletter covers the gritty details such as concert dates, setlists, news events and rumors. Who Threw the Glass (Australia - quarterly, AUS$12 for subscription, contact Shane Youl <sfy@mel.dit.CSIRO.AU> for more information) contains analysis & discussion of Dylan's ongoing works... Taper's Quarterly (US - quarterly, $10/yr) published by the Live Audio Video Association (LAVA), 1726 Sacramento St., San Francisco, CA 94109-3643 (or contact: lava@well.sf.ca.com) is a forum for those who record live music of all sorts, and contains information reagrding equipment, techniques, etc. The Famous Etiquette Book (UK, available from PO Box 2935, Solihull, West Midlands, B91 2LQ, UK. Subscription is 5 pounds sterling for 5 issues, payable to Phill Townsend) TFEQ is a news-sheet produced by Phill Townsend (Crazy Joe in ISIS) that gives updates on Dylan CD boots as they become available. This information later becomes available in ISIS and Series of Dreams, and eventually in Townsend's book(s). Why A Pig? (UK, subscriptions are for 4 issues, c/o PO Box 3239, London SW6, UK. Cheques/POs/IMO should be made payable to "Why A Pig?" UK subs: 10 pounds; Europe subs: 12 pounds; USA subs: $15 sea, $20 air) Devoted to covering the 'underground' CD market regarding many performers. Rolling Thunder (Italy - three times a year, issues $12 each through Rolling Tomes) Described in the Rolling Tomes catalog as "large format, nice layout and photos. Mostly Italian text." There are a number of discontinued magazines that are still in print or available as back orders, such as Homer the Slut (UK) and Look Back (US). For more information, contact Rolling Tomes. 4. I just read an article about Bob Dylan in my newspaper... ============================================================ Mark Carter provides a cutting service to which everyone should contribute. If you see something in a newspaper, magazine or journal of even the remotest relevance to Bob Dylan and his work then you should send it to him. If it is something you would throw away then send the original, otherwise send a photocopy. Include all relevant information of the date, publication, place, page numbers, etc. Send your contributions to: Mark Carter, 25 Marlborourgh Road Norwich Norfolk NR3 7AP England Just because the article appeared in the New York Times doesn't mean that someone else has already sent it! Duplications are trivial, but omissions are glaring errors :-). Submissions from publications with limited circulation and non-English newspapers are especially encouraged, since the rest of the world will probably never know of these articles unless you clip them! 5. What are bootlegs, and how do I find them? ============================================= A bootleg is any recording, live or studio, which is not officially sanctioned by the artist's recording company for sale or distribution. In the U.S., it is legal to tape a radio show or television special for your own personal use, but it is illegal to sell or rebroadcast such a recording. It is also illegal to record concerts without the artist's consent, and anyone who makes or distributes bootleg recordings can be subject to prosecution. Dylan's 'Royal Albert Hall' concert is one of the most famous bootlegs of all time, dating from the 1966 tour of England (chances are that this recording is really from Manchester or elsewhere). Contains some truly amazing live performances; the 'electric' set was received very poorly by the audience at hand. Near the end of the show, an irritated audience member yells out "Judas!" Dylan responds by saying: "I don't believe you... You're a liar!" before launching into a truly overpowering version of "Like a Rolling Stone," obviously directed at that same audience member... This audio bootleg is one of many fragments of soundboard tapes circulating from the 1966 tour, and the origin of these tapes is a frequent topic of discussion among Dylan fans everywhere. A pirated recording, however, is an illegal copy of an official release by an artist. Anyone who tapes a legally available CD or record and then tries to sell you a copy is violating the copyright on that recording and is knowingly depriving the artist of royalties. The record industry does its best to search out pirates and prosecute them. Pirated recordings (often made in countries like Thailand or Indonesia, where authorities are easy to bribe or too busy to notice) do deprive the company and artist of money, and are thus far worse than bootlegs - the record industry claims that it loses hundreds of millions of dollars every year to record pirates. These are usually the cheapo tapes with blurry covers (or no jacket at all) that are sold in flea markets and the like. Avoid like the plague. On the other hand, counterfeit recordings are generally very professional in appearance (supposedly there are thousands of pirated copies of the Beatles' _Let It Be_ album in circulation that are nearly indistinguishable from the official Apple Records release). A counterfeit recording is an exact copy of a legitimate recording (often with a few distinguishing flaws) that is illegally distributed as the real thing. Nevertheless, there are literally thousands of bootleg recordings of Dylan performances and even studio sessions that are widely circulated among collectors, and certain countries (such as Italy) have lenient copyright laws which allow many of these recordings to be pressed on compact disc. These discs are usually distributed as expensive "live/rare" material and can only be found through record specialty stores (usually the same places that sell used records) and individual dealers, some of whom do mailorder business. It is not within proper Internet/Usenet etiquette to make the sources of such black-market operations available publicly, so the only way that you will find bootlegs is by finding a store that sells them or posting a request for information and waiting for someone to respond via email. That is one FAQ that can't be answered publicly. Many people obtain 'live/rare' material by trading DAT or cassette tapes. This is obviously a lot cheaper than searching for profit-seeking dealers of CD bootlegs (most of these are mastered from cassettes, anyway), and is far less condemnable, so long as there is no payment involved. Rec.music.gdead, the newsgroup for the Grateful Dead, is one place where live tapes are traded legally - this is because the Grateful Dead allow their concerts to be taped from a special section of the audience and distributed for non-profit listening. If you follow the newsgroup for a while, you will invariably see discussions of unreleased Bob Dylan material. A friendly email response will often help locate someone with whom you can trade live Dylan tapes... If you do come across a Dylan CD and want to tell the newsgroup about it, simply imitate the format of other listings you have seen, or ask for help. Of importance are the songs included and their length, the title and manufacturer of the disc, the matrix number (printed in tiny characters on the inner ring of the disc), and the supposed origin of the recording. In short, the easiest way to find a particular out-of-print or rare item is to latch onto a discussion of that item, or to bring up the topic yourself. Most Bob Dylan fans are quite willing to share their addiction with others... A few pointers for those just starting out in tape trading: Always use CrO2 (or better) cassettes - Maxell XLII is a good standard, since its availability and quality standards are known worldwide. TDK SA seems to have been accepted as an equal. (Digital Audio Tape recorders are best, but not everyone can afford DAT...) Be sure to indicate whether or not you want to use Dolby Noise Reduction - many tapers prefer no Dolby at all, but Dolby-C has developed a sizable following... Few novices record at the correct level on CrO2 cassettes - don't be frightened of the red, it takes massively high levels to distort with a good machine. Record too low and the tape hiss generation by generation in a tape tree becomes intolerable. Restart from the beginning any final track which is unfinished on the first side of a tape. Most trades are done on a one tape for one tape basis - if you discover that you can't fit all the items requested onto the number of tapes allotted, don't just send an incomplete recording! And do make sure you have actually taped the FULL recording. It is all too easy to accidentally clip the end of a song witout noticing. Stay in touch with your trading partner to avoid disappointment on both ends. Above all, don't be afraid to ask questions if you become confused! Agree with your trader if they want blank tape left blank, filler inserted, or the source restarted to fill the tape with repeated material. Also determine the prefered method of shipment and whether or not you will be mailing the tapes in their plastic boxes. If you are mailing overseas, be sure to indicate that the package is a 'gift' on the customs form; and use a low value when estimating the worth of the package contents. Many countries levy considerable customs fees for valuable packages, which the recipient will have to pay... THE BOB DYLAN BOOT DATA BASE (BDBDB) EDLIS now maintains a database of collectors who have registered ownership of particular Dylan boots. The purposes of this service are to disseminate information about boots (playlists, times, quality, etc.) and to promote networking between collectors. Periodically, a post to rec.music.dylan will be made under the subject "EDLIS - Who Has Which Boot..." describing how to access the service and how to contribute your collection list. Questions posted to the newsgroup at-large are also relayed to the agency. As with EDLIS' lyric service, the Who Has Which Boot database depends on the generosity of collectors who send in their listings and volunteer to provide information. No collection is too large or too small, and your participation is strongly encouraged! 6. Has Bob Dylan appeared in any movies or film documentaries? ============================================================== D.A. Pennebaker filmed "Don't Look Back," a documentary of Dylan's 1965 tour of England (it would be his last stand as a strictly 'folk' performer). "Don't Look Back" is available on videocassette and features footage of concerts, press-conferences and back-stage activity. This is Dylan at his most playful/caustic, getting his digs at the press, a hapless college student who wants to interview him and Donovan, among others... Essential for the Dylan enthusiast. The movie "Festival" covers several of the Newport Folk Festivals of the 1960's, and features Dylan infamous first 'electric' performance, with the Paul Butterfield Blues Band. "Eat the Document" is a one-hour film shot by D.A. Pennebaker during the landmark 1966 'electric' tour of England and later edited by Howard Alk and Dylan himself. This rather bizarre anti-documentary film was shown at a few theaters in 1971, and has had a rare television airing or two since, but is not in print. A short tape of outtakes from the movie was assembled by Pennebaker and circulates on videotape. "The Concert for Bangladesh," available on both videocassette and compact disc, is George Harrison's fundraising benefit filmed at Madison Square Gardens in 1971. Dylan makes a rare early 1970's concert guest appearance and steals the show! "Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid" is a Sam Peckinpah western tale of the familiar outlaw. Bob Dylan wrote the soundtrack (includes "Knockin' on Heaven's Door") and appears as "Alias," a bit part with a few amusing scenes. The movie exists in the original release form, and a 'directors' cut'. Both include some soundtrack music that is not on the soundtrack album. "The Last Waltz" documents the 'farewell' concert by The Band in 1976, and features Dylan as well as a bevy of other performers in what has been hailed as one of the best rock-documentaries made. "Renaldo and Clara" - this four-hour movie by Bob Dylan (and a two-hour, edited version) was shown at a few theaters in 1978, received generally dismal reviews, and disappeared from sight. It will probably not be given official release on any format any time in the near future. It does, however, contain some great live footage from the 1975 Rolling Thunder tour, during which this movie was recorded. Circulating videotape copies probably originated from a mid-1980's late-night television broadcast of this movie in Britain. The Hard Rain television special - filmed in concert in Fort Collins, Colorado, May 1976, this footage was broadcast on NBC, but has not seen official release on videocassette. Some, but not all, of the performances from this set are on the live album _Hard Rain_... There is an 'alternate' version of the Hard Rain special, with a very different song selection, from Clearwater, Florida, April 1976 that was never broadcast but also circulates in the underground. Bob Dylan also appears in the movie "Hearts of Fire," filmed in 1985, playing the part of an aging rock star. The script of this movie is pretty hackneyed stuff, and received poor reviews. Still, Dylan fans will find some moments of interest. "Hard to Handle" is a concert videotape from the 1986 tour of Australia with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. "The Bob Dylan 30th Anniversary Tribute" videotapes document Columbia Records' massive Dylan tribute show at Madison Square Gardens in 1992. Dylan himself appears only briefly, but a host of other performers play songs here that Dylan rarely or never airs...
