Dylan (host) 3:15:54 PM
Also John C Reilly
Brian D 3:16:19 PM
Brule's Rules... for your health!
Brian D 3:19:13 PM
And i love the live shows he did from 1999 and 2000. Especially autumn of 99. And summer 2000.
Brian D 3:19:37 PM
That band he had at the time was so good.
Dylan (host) 3:19:56 PM
Only one I ever saw was in 2018 at the Beacon, really liked it. He did a little old man dance.
-ᎷяMΞ”αžα¨Γ˜Π˜αŽ’ΞžN᎒-πŸ’€ 3:21:06 PM
DJ DylanFox, do you have a version of β€œOne More Cup Of Coffee” planned for today?? β˜•οΈ
Dylan (host) 3:21:48 PM
Don't currently but maybe
Dylan (host) 3:22:57 PM
Have to see about time
Brian D 3:23:15 PM
That version by Sertab Erener is great. But i like Bob's just fine
Brian D 3:26:19 PM
Saw a band do a great version of Black Diamond Bay couple years ago. Outdoors. House party w tons of bands. I like the way that whole story unfolds
Dylan (host) 3:26:50 PM
Bob is such a natural storyteller
-ᎷяMΞ”αžα¨Γ˜Π˜αŽ’ΞžN᎒-πŸ’€ 3:29:27 PM
Nice selections to start the show!
Brian D 3:36:38 PM
Patti Smith and Dylan did Dark Eyes when i saw him in 1995. She and her great band opened up (Lenny Kaye and Tom Verlaine in the band rhen) . Bob's band at the time was great too
Brian D 3:37:53 PM
Lively shows. That's when i thought ok he's really playing well live now, i better see him more often now...
Brian D 3:39:12 PM
this new Lonnie Smith is really good
Dylan (host) 3:43:55 PM
It is!

Brian D 4:01:25 PM
Still no
Brian D 4:02:00 PM
The capital letters Dylan mean say that syllable LOUDER
Brian D 4:02:18 PM
That's like phonetic pronunciation 101
-ᎷяMΞ”αžα¨Γ˜Π˜αŽ’ΞžN᎒-πŸ’€ 4:02:46 PM
Do better, Brian D
Brian D 4:03:10 PM
No

Dylan you had me laughing hard
Brian D 4:06:37 PM
Yeah all in good fun in chat. Good try

You should have seen me in Spanish class
Selecta Jerry 4:07:24 PM
Brian D and dylan fox world tour the people demand it
Dylan (host) 4:08:07 PM
Brian come on the show and analyze me accent
Brian D 4:09:21 PM
Spanish is easier than English! Almost perfect pronunciation rules in Spanish. English is HARD to pronounce yes
Brian D 4:09:45 PM
Not that meaning of the word accent
Brian D 4:10:00 PM
Different connotation
Dylan (host) 4:10:19 PM
Three years of me in Spanish disagree
Brian D 4:10:33 PM
Accent meaning the stressed syllable of the word
Dylan (host) 4:11:45 PM
What are interesting things about the way I speak.
Brian D 4:12:02 PM
The main thing is speaking and not reading . The printed word is a cue. It has to come out of the mouth like natural speech. That can be hard to get past that barrier yes
Brian D 4:13:48 PM
For Spanish and other foreign language classes it was like play acting. Step inside a room and leave English behind for a bit. Different character.
Selecta Jerry 4:16:03 PM
Great selections today on top of the phonetics lesson πŸ”₯🎢
Brian D 4:16:40 PM
I like Johnny Cash in his Mariachi phase!
Dylan (host) 4:16:40 PM
I wanted to avoid most the famous covers or ones that were way more popular than the original.
Brian D 4:18:03 PM
I remember watching Lou do this on tv when the 30th anniv special aired
Brian D 4:18:24 PM

1992
Dylan (host) 4:19:03 PM
Yeah I was still on Jupiter
Brian D 4:19:15 PM
Lp came out in 93. Concert was fall 92 or late summer?
Dylan (host) 4:19:38 PM
Crazy that they convinced Bob to do it.
Brian D 4:20:15 PM
TV broadcast, radio broadcast and audio and video releases were all different
Dylan (host) 4:21:09 PM
The 1990s were crazy
Brian D 4:21:19 PM
I like when Bob himself did It's Alright Ma... solo acoustic. Great job on that
Brian D 4:22:31 PM
This was the perfect song for Lou to do. That delivery
Brian D 4:23:56 PM
Such a similarity between Bob and son Jakob on the cover photo for the Basement Tapes box @ 4:05 pm.
Dylan (host) 4:23:59 PM
Such a crazy song, very Lou
Brian D 4:24:26 PM
That line about the Suisse bank ha
Dylan (host) 4:25:21 PM
Basement Tapes Bob was the hottest Bob
Dylan (host) 4:26:08 PM
Blowing in the Wind was the song that led Sam Cooke to write A Change Is Gonna Come
Brian D 4:26:09 PM
They had a ball recording at the pink house it sounded like.
-ᎷяMΞ”αžα¨Γ˜Π˜αŽ’ΞžN᎒-πŸ’€ 4:26:10 PM
There was a hot Bob?
Dylan (host) 4:26:48 PM
He's pretty hot
Brian D 4:27:46 PM
That Basement Tapes box has some funny stoner goofy moments. The See You Later Alligator jokey version. And the one about the dog.... fun stuff
Dylan (host) 4:27:55 PM
Was he a good romantic partner, no?
-ᎷяMΞ”αžα¨Γ˜Π˜αŽ’ΞžN᎒-πŸ’€ 4:28:15 PM
Full stop
Selecta Jerry 4:28:23 PM
Had to sing blowing in the wind as a class for my eighth grade graduation
Dylan (host) 4:28:24 PM
See You Later Allen Ginsberg is a song you can smell the weed on
Brian D 4:28:34 PM
Yes!
Brian D 4:28:44 PM
I thought the same

I think we sung Blowin in the Wind for music class in Elementary School
Brian D 4:29:14 PM
Like schoolkids goofin around
Selecta Jerry 4:29:44 PM
Must be an elementary school standard
Dylan (host) 4:29:54 PM
We had no idea what was going on. They also had "If I Had a Hammer" and I thought it was about carpentry
Brian D 4:30:25 PM
Trini Lopez version of "Hammer". Like that
Dylan (host) 4:30:27 PM
Tears of Rage is one of the best songs about the Vietnam Era
Brian D 4:31:03 PM
Yeah. Just watched the Band/Robbie docu.
Dylan (host) 4:31:41 PM

Brian D 4:38:42 PM
This was a great Neil Crazy Horse tour. Giant Yellow ribbon draped on the giant microphone prop for this. 1991. Gulf War era
Corage Mike 4:39:09 PM
Great version. Those chords....
Brian D 4:39:28 PM
Crazy Horse could do some fine harmonies.
Dylan (host) 4:39:59 PM
I remember Bob played Masters of War at the beginning of the Gulf War when getting a life time achievement award and when asked why, he replied, "The war."
Brian D 4:40:03 PM
I forget who does the high harmony Billy or Ralph
Brian D 4:41:17 PM
He talked about that in the book. Did not name names but he mentioned how people were afraid to come to the event
Brian D 4:42:13 PM
Jack Nicholson got props for showing up and introducing him (i think it was Jack)
Brian D 4:43:29 PM
"Chronicles Vol 1". Interesting read. Strange the way it's layed out but it makes sense in that it's Bob
Dylan (host) 4:44:20 PM
Desolation Row is what I'd probably call his greatest song in a literary sense.
Brian D 4:44:22 PM
Love the lead gtr fills on this
Dylan (host) 4:44:50 PM
Such a great portrait of a moment in his imagination.
Brian D 4:44:55 PM
Yeah it is up there. Johanna too
Selecta Jerry 4:46:59 PM
Would i have seen that 91 neil tour at the camden water front venue brian d ?
Dylan (host) 4:47:14 PM
Johanna is more in Bob's mind while I feel like Desolation Row is how Bob views the world. Like it feels like one long tracking shot through the Greenwich Village right before the Soviet Missiles arrive.
Brian D 4:48:10 PM
No indoors show that year/ tour Jerry
Brian D 4:48:47 PM
Hershey hockey arena.... maybe the Philly Civic Center that tour?
Selecta Jerry 4:49:31 PM
Didnt think i missed any neil shows back then but dont remember the ribbon
Brian D 4:49:34 PM
He purposely avoided the usual arenas. Said he wanted to play the dive s---hole arenas. Neil

Dylan (host) 4:56:29 PM
Like I love the Bob Dylan original on John Wesley Harding, but the Hendrix one is just so great as a thing in itself. Like The process to get from the original to this is just astounding.
Selecta Jerry 4:57:42 PM
