    This snorefest escaped my notice until today. I guess I never had time for:

    - SONS of great men (Arlo is not Woody)
    - Hippie rantings
    - Long songs that don't involve interesting musicianship
    - Being bored

    Yet, some of my Facebook friends and Twitter connections seem to be into this thing. So I present it for all of you.


    If possible.

    Why bother posting this if you're gonna throw veiled insults in there along with it?

    What's "veiled" about my post?

    I was not aware that I should only post about things I think are wonderful. I'm sure some of you think it's really great.

    Do you picture him more as a mother stabber or father raper?

    This album is proof that "You had to be there" is sometimes true. 18 in 1967

    As someone who has spent time in the Berkshires and even had dinner at Alice's restaurants -- she had three, I believe -- that song is part of my family's Thanksgiving tradition. In fact, I had to find it online via smartphone (in the middle of nowhere) while my mom was driving to a holiday gathering today.

    Did you know that the LP version of the song is the exact length of the mysterious gap in the Watergate recordings?

    I heard that if you play it backwards, it says, "Bob Dylan is the devil."
