Dylan actually has an under-ratedly good voice imo, though I don't like the poor guy's croaking in recent years.
I always considered The Rooftop Singers and Kingston Trio as the cool side of the American Folk Revival. Peter, Paul and Mary as the Pop side. They (PP&M) played Nylon string guitars for Pete's sake. There is no nylon in Folk. You won't find a nylon guitar playing in Country Blues or Olde Timey or traditional Appalachian Folk music. I was undecided about Bob, and bit suspicious if he was just jumping on the bandwagon with Folk. I seen a doc about him and I guess he was legit. He came across as a music lover.



Walk Right In is amazing, you have to hear it in full to get the 12 string work, in some small way it changed the face of music. (Erik Darling from The Rooftop Singers is one of my music heroes.)

^ HaHa! Nothing wrong with being serious about music though. That's what brought most of us here in the first place isn't it?

^ Thanks for that curious detail about strings, Neapolitan; it's something that would never have occured to me !

^ Walk Right In certainly has something special about it; prior to yesterday, I probably hadn't heard it for about 40 years, but I could recall it just like that - the tune the title and all.

Sorry; in my enthusiasm for Dylan I was a bit too quick to dismiss other '60s American folk singers, who perhaps I should explore a bit more. Apart from a few hardcore Greenwich Villagers like Dave Van Ronk and Richard Fariña, I don't know much about them.

.................................................. .............."...worst...terrible...godawful..."

I'm sorry you both had such negative experiences at your Dylan concerts; I guess the truth is that as a live artist, Dylan is way past his prime. He has been performing live for over fifty-five years, and since 1988 has maintained a gruelling pace of concerts with the so-called The Never Ending Tour, though he himself doesn't like the misuse of that term:-

Quote:
"Don't be bewildered by the Never Ending Tour chatter. There was a Never Ending Tour but it ended in 1991...that one's long gone but there have been many others since then: "The Money Never Runs Out Tour", "Southern Sympathizer Tour", "Why Do You Look At Me So Strangely Tour", "The One Sad Cry Of Pity Tour", "Outburst Of Consciousness Tour", "Don't Let Your Deal Go Down Tour" and others, too many to mention each with their own character & design.

"Critics should know there is no such thing as forever. Does anybody call Henry Ford a Never Ending Car Builder? Anybody ever say that Duke Ellington was on a Never Ending Bandstand Tour? These days, people are lucky to have a job. Any job. So critics might be uncomfortable with my working so much. Anybody with a trade can work as long as they want. A carpenter, an electrician. They don't necessarily need to retire."
As Bob compares himself to a carpenter, perhaps we should take heed; if you hire a carpenter who's 75 years old, don't be surprised if your shelves are wobbly.

I like Bob Dylan's voice, it fits his music perfectly.

I don't like people who can't sing at all tho, and use some weird talking voice on tracks like panic at the disco
