The non-word "knowed" in "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright" is so damned perfect. It feels not like a forced rhyme than an utterly required manipulation. There's an elemental satisfaction in hearing the line that is so rare.

He may have done more textually rich stuff, but Dont Think Twice is my favourite Dylan song on most days of the week.

Tho I lack the knowledge and experience with his catalogue, and realize that there are culturally more important songs—e.g., I'm mostly persuaded by the many critics who argue that "Like a Rolling Stone" created rock music (as distinct from rock n roll) or serves as the watershed—but I probably agree with this. It has such an easy comfort to it, the music itself confirms the song's title.

I stumbled onto a gallery that had some of Dylan's paintings for sale for between £9 - 20k. Quite nice to be in the same room as his stuff, but it was pretty amateurish for the most part with no sense of feeling that didn't speak to me. Apart from this one, which reminded me of his songs in a really charming way. It's got no great technique, but it in person there was something very appealing about it.

There were also some of Ron Wood's paintings of the Rolling Stones that were on the whole much more pleasing. Really vibrant, concert action excitement stuff.

While I don't care for the jittery quality to it—full disclosure: I know dick all about art, in case there were doubts—I do like the bright yellows, reds, and greens of the neon. They draw the eye. It's neat as yet another counterpoint to his status as some kind of guardian or voice of a lost, traditional America, yet that painting suggests a certain nostalgia for the commercialized America that killed the earlier, supposedly more innocent, truer America. This has a Happy Days smile to it.

New Bootleg Series announced, focuing on Bob's gospel years: https://www.rollingstone.com/music/news ... od-w502023

Already ordered the deluxe box, natch. Looking forward to it. I remember rcs (?) sharing some bootlegs from that era with me, and they were great. These deep dive sets the Dylan machine has been unbelievably rewarding for die-hard fans. Very well-curated stuff. Can't imagine this will be any different.

:lol: The real Dylan is weird enough that I would immediately believe a person who told me he has an encyclopedic knowledge of 3rd Rock.

Hey Doc, (and apologies if this has actually be referenced in the thread and I'm not remembering), have you read/encountered The Poltical World of Bob Dylan? It seems to land on the academic-ish side.

I'm reading a Counterpunch article discussing the book, and the era of Bob's conversion to Christianity, and they argue that Dylan was essentially embracing Christian Anarchism during that period, which I obviously find extremely intriguing.
