in exchange for those kind and spot on words Queen Ann, I will gladly give Dylan one complementary spin. it's on me. but i get to leave one song off due to the N-M comment. :) unless it's because you've overplayed it. that i can understand. but then there are live alternatives to make you fall back in love with it again.



^ :D That's wonderful news! The more you hear Dylan 73, the more
you're going to like it! ....trust me! :mrgreen:

It's possible that i did overplay Nettie Moore. Yesterday was the first time i listened
to Modern Times in a while, and Nettie Moore just didn't thrill me the way it used to.
Since you're willing to give Dylan another listen, i'll listen to Nettie Moore again....
> i'll tell you this- N.M. used to be one of my favorite songs, so this is puzzling to me! :?

The vinyl beats the CD hands down, no contest.

That's probably true, if only because it's damn hard to like it LESS than on the first listen...

i tend to give things a lot of slack on the first go around...so repetition doesn't always work in the product's favor.

The vinyl really does have an edge, a warmth, entirely missing from the CD - laugh as much as you like El Troubador-ooni, it's the truth - for me it was like hearing a different album, one that I wanted to hear again and again. The Cd was pants as you youngsters say (i think?). In this case (as with Love and Theft) wax wins.... thank you and goodnight 8)

ps mind you, i might be going def - what? what??? speak up! no need to shout! (fiddles with hearing aid) - bring back shellac! I hope the next dylan record is only out on 78rpm, that'll learn ya!

i was only laughing because i thought you were pointing out an obvious truth, in a sarcastic manner...i thought it was a joke placement. i am quite with you in your assessment.

speaking of 78s, there are a few being released on record store day..(forget by whom) - those need a special player i presume, no?

i am proud to say my CD collection has been collecting dust since i've been enjoying the best xmas gift i've gotten since my 8th grade electric guitar.

That's the truth. I feel like snapping that little cd in half.

This one's got 4 sides though! :lol: I guess I'll go with whatever side When the Deal Goes Down is on, so that gets my vote.

I went to this wedding reception thing yesterday afternoon, in a pub in Islington.

They played the whole of Another Side, followed by the whole of Modern Times.

Both sounded totally terrible. Modern Times in particular seemed to last so long I swear it was still playing when I woke up this morning.

The album has two standouts, for me, one is Rollin' and Tumblin' the other is Ain't Talkin'. So I guess I'll go with side 2 (or 4.) Since Dylan's Rollin' doesn't quite tumble the way some other singers can make it.

the married couple were dylan fans i presume?

i went to an east coast rural fish restaurant this weekend - they were playing World Gone Wrong - so odd and surprising! i complemented the bartender, he said it was a waitress who was responsible, and she already got complemented for having played Buddy Guy earlier that day. wild and crazy stuff.
