    Never got much Radio play. Radio censorship was normal in the 1970's. I played it on a college radio station late night with no problems but playing one Richard Pryor album and my career was over. I probably shouldn't have played it while i was subbing for the Classical music DJ in the afternoon.

    You should have known better. I love classical music, but I know a lot of others who take these things way to seriously and have no sense of humor.

    "Country Roads" - John Denver


    We used to play that song on the Cruise Ships when it was popular. We'd first ask people if anyone here was from West Virginia??? Nobody would ever raise their hands, and I'd reply, "That's because nobody told them they could leave." (cue laughter at the expense of the nice people who live in WV).

    Then I'd ask them to sing along and after "Almost heaven" substitute their own state, province or country. It worked well while the song was popular.

    We don't do that one anymore, but it was fun in it's day.

    ^^ I was thinking the same thing at the same time. Dylan went straight over my head.
    John Denver, otoh, is not to be "dissed" (?) with me in the room. My favourite male artist/singer/writer, if listening to the right recordings.

    I guess I'm in left field with my enjoyment of Dylan's work. I like Arlo Guthrie and Neil Young too so there ya go.

    "25 or 6 to 4" - Chicago (with fantastic guitar work by Terry Kath, the guy Henrix said "He's better than me").

    I like a few of Dylan's performances, but generally I think there are other singers who can improve on his very good songwriting skills. "Tangled Up In Blue", "Knockin' On Heaven's Door", and a few others fit his styling very well, but IMHO "Mr Tambourine Man", "Quinn" and quite a few others were made better by other singers. But as a musician there is one thing I know, there is more than one right way to do music.
