How about the album Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan did together, Nashville Sessions.

I cant comment on the film as I havent yet been able to see it, I will when it comes out on DVD. Johnny Cash was a legend and should be respected. As for Dylan he is one of the three people that shaped todays music to what it is. Im a big fan of his 70's stuff, he's 60's was inspiring but I really believe that during the 70's he was doing what he loved to do and that showed in his songwriting.
He was also the one who put Nashville on the map, "wow dylan went there so it must be cool". There is no doubt in my mind that Bob Dylan is the most prolific songwriter of modern times. Legend?. the word do's not comprehend the impact of the man.

Favorite Albums,
Street Legal
Infidels
Blood on the Tracks
Desire
Empire Burlesque

did anyone hear Johnny Cash's cover of the U2 song "one" man that was cool

Who would you say the other two are?

Depends on when you consider to be "modern times", and what exactly your definition of "prolific" is. By the dictionary definition, there are plenty who easily eclipse Bob Dylan.

the other two would be the beatles and Elvis.

pro·lif·ic - adj.

Producing abundant works or results: a prolific artist.

I`d say Elvis was more an influence than prolific

1. Reasonable choices, I wouldn't argue with them.


2. Right, and by that definition, saying Dylan's the most prolific artist of modern times is wrong, even if you start from the sixties (the most prolific songwriter of the 1900's, at least in pop music (not too sure what the deal with classical would be) is probably Duke Ellington), there's at least one person (Frank Zappa) who's written way more music than Bob Dylan has. There're probably more, but I couldn't tell you for sure who they are, so I won't make any guarantees.

Dylan has written around 450 - 500 songs since 1962 and thats just the ones that we know about including a lot of bootlegs. this number only includes recorded whether they be released or outakes.

And it was legends when I said Dylan, Elvis and the beatles.

Can't give you an exact quota on how many Frank Zappa wrote, I'm 99% sure it's over 500. And these aren't just acoustic folk/rock patterns (I'm not insulting Bob Dylan, he's my favorite musician/band ever, I just believe in credit where it's due), these are multi-instrumental compositions, that can have around fifteen people (more, sometimes) playing in them. Bob Dylan's lyrics edge out Zappas, but his are some of the best and most creative that you can find.


And as for Duke Ellington, king of all blues-based songwriters, he wrote over 2000 songs. And these are almost all for big bands.

yes I concede that I worded the post badly, I should have stated "one of the most prolific of our time"

I had no intention of starting a debate on the matter

with respect
