(this is a re-entry of a scrapped item, especially for Hans Bosch who wrote in to say he misses Eugene so much... - now, what are the release details?) == Cheech & Chong, Testimonial By R. Zimmerman ("Hi, this is R. Zimmerman from the American Cancer Society"), from "Wedding Album", album, USA 1974 == Nick Danger, Bob Dylan At The Met (...) from "Eat Or Be Eaten", album (see ISIS # 65, p. 8) == Firesign Theater, Bob At The Met (is this the same song as Nick Danger's "Bob Dylan At The Met", anybody?) == National Lampoon, Positively Wall Street ("You say I owe you something/you ask me for my plan/just who were you expectin'/Jesus Zimmerman?"), from "Lemmings", album, USA 1973 == same, Godspeak Suite: Porkbucket Place/Born Again Bob ("You can call him Zimmy"), from "Sex, Drugs, Rock'n'Roll, And The End Of The World", album, USA == same, Those Fabulous Sixties ("Hi, I'm Bob Dylan"), from "Radio Dinner", album, USA 1972 == same, Down To Jamaica ("..."), from "Goodbye Pop", album, USA 1975 == The Original Tele-Funnies, Bob Dylan, from "The Original Tele-Funnies Vol. One", cassette, USA 1983 (for telephone answering machines) == The Washington Hillbillies, Bobby The Prez (...), from "The Washington Hillbillies", album, USA 1977 == Frank Zappa, Flakes ("Take it away, Bob ..."), from "Sheik Yerbouti", album, USA 1979

(tongue twisters, don't-knows and other assorted white spots):

== Country Joe & The Fish, Hey Bobby ("Hey Bobby, where you been, I missed you out on the streets?" Is this really our Bobby?) == Janis Ian, New Christ Cardiac Hero (?) == Don McLean, He Loves You (supposedly about Bob Dylan) == Saw Doctors, My Heart Is Living In The Sixties Still (album?) == Traffic, Dear Mr. Fantasy (see ISIS # 65, p. 7 for comment) == Unit 5, New Leather Jacket (supposedly mentions Dylan in lyrics) == (Unknown Artist), ??? ("Ich träumte, daß ich Hannes Wader fragte was er von meinen Liedern hält, doch dann weckte mich Robert Zimmerman") - this sounds like an answer to Hannes Wader's "Langeweile" (see Wader entry in section c) == (Unknown Artist), ??? ("Rang rang Dylan or nothing") (?) == Jan Erik Vold, Kåre Virud & Telemark Blueslag, Preike Trea Verdenskrig Blues ("Bob Dylan sa det"), from "Stein Regn", album, Norway 1981 (see ISIS # 65, p. 8/ I do not know the album, but I believe this is a Norwegian version of "Talking WW3 Blues", and if so, then rule # 1 applies) P.S. The often-mentioned "You Ain't Going Nowhere" from the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's "Will The Circle Be Unbroken Vol. 2" album (USA 1989) does not qualify. See rule 1. Simple, but brutal. Also, the Steve Gibbons, John Lennon, John Lennon/Yoko Ono and Rump entries have been scrapped in section f. Does anybody miss them?
