Spalding. Spalding must have some significance to someone in Dylan circles?!? What do rec.music.dylan readers think of the 2 CD Vienna 1994 release The Werchter Club Of Spalding as a CD? And why Spalding again? No one ever explained Rockland's Captain Ahab's Dream / Bob Dylan & the Gentleman's Club of Spalding [T-175]? Nor has anyone explained the vinyl Days Of '49 : The Gentleman's Club Of Spalding (Cookroom, Cookroom Records 001, )? Just add it to the FUQ I suppose... Karl Erik? Les? Ben? Anyone? Why Spalding? Not in any lyrics I know... Craig

If my memory serves me well, Groucho Marx plays Captain Spalding in one of the Marx Brothers movies - Animal Crackers? Captain Spalding of course was the famous explorer who shot an elephant in his pajamas - how he got in my pajamas, I'll never know! This movie is highly regarded here in Alabama.

And is Captain Spalding related to the Gentleman's Club of Spalding which is not all that far from here, in Spalding?
