Its the piano tune that's playing when he's talking about Frances Farmer, right before the Nirvana tune.
If anyone could let me know, that'd be great, thanks.

Great story about her by the way!

Tsegue-maryam Guebrou, "The Mad Man's Laughter"--you can find this on Vol. 21 of Ethiopiques entitled Emahoy--Guebrou is a nun and pianist, currently living in Jerusalem. Here's an Amazon link:

I have a couple of volumes from this series, but not this record--the Mulatu Astatke volume is incredible stuff.

Guebrou's "The Homeless Wanderer" is also played as bed music in the "Streets" episode.

Very nice, Wandu. If we keep this up, we'll have a fully musically annotated TTRH before we're done.

I am wondering - how is it that you can identify such snippets? Is there any help in software such as Shazam and SoundHound? Or are these programmes stumped by the overlay of Bob's voice?

Sometimes Shazam works, but I'd say it's less than 50%--I"m sure Dylan's voice talking over the snippets doesn't help the app to do its work, but sometimes just an isolated piece of music will trigger off a Shazam ID. Just got an iPhone, so this is new tech for me, so maybe there's better ways to go about ID'ing the bed music on Theme Time.

I've used Tunatic to identify TTRH music with occasionally good results. It doesn't handle bed (that is, with Mr. D. speaking over the music) music very well, but I have been able to identify a few of the show opener/closers with it, such as "Monkey Banana" by Fela Kuti, which was used in the opening of the second "Noah's Ark" show.

Midomi (the online version of Soundhound) is another one...

and finally, if you have some musical ability, the Musipedia Melody Search Engine has an online keyboard which you can use to enter a song's melody. Unfortunately, for a guy that loves music as much as I do, I'm tone-deaf. :lol:

Of course, the best way is to have a fount of musical knowledge at hand such as the Great Wandu. :D

As always, Fred, thanks for the advice. I think we're all in the same boat here--we got drawn in by the show and are curious--esp. as the show developed and got more, uh, let's say production value with the intros, outros, and bed music--about all that's going on. What's being played behind Dylan comments about the themes and adds to the total effect--this is yet another real delight about the show. Tracking down this info is really a combo of having a lot of, maybe way too many, records (as my girlfriend keeps reminding me), aggressive Googling, some educated guesses, blind luck and now Shazam. I'll check out your recommendations as I keep up this fool's errand. Regardless Fred, I know I speak for many when I say I miss your blog.
