Paula West: Like a Rolling Stone

Thanks for the tip. I know feel less like a dinosaur, and more like a woman with friends with great taste. This clip works for me on two or three levels. Maybe more. She's new to me, and she doesn't sing like a woman who should be new to me. Her back up is superb. Love the bass player. And as an old hippy I like this cover of a Dylan classic, Like a Rolling Stone.

very nice. the beauty of dylan's music is that much of it is really timeless. yeah, some of it has kind of crossed the line into cliche (or so some would have you believe), but there is no denying he was (and is) a transcendent figure in many ways.

which leads me to that old and on-going battle between the the early-stage and late-stage hippies/rockers: dylan or springsteen. i say dylan hands down, even though i'm a huge springsteen fan (and not just because i grew up in the asbury park area of new jersey). no, it's because people will be writing about dylan and covering his songs long after both he and bruce springsteen are gone.

Sulpsper, I agree completely. I have an enormous library of Dylan and I have to admit that I love some of his later work. The soundtrack of Wonder Boys is terrific. Highlands is one of my favorites and I think it's fairly late. And I like the darker quality of his voice now. But he will be covered for the rest of our lives at least.

Well Anita I left you a message as if you were a new visitor. I guess I've been an ass to so many people that I've scared them off. The pot smoking nun and I used to have words now and then and finally I made her mad enough she never came back.
