Happy as an Ashtray--The Bob Dylan Topic

on Sun Jul 01, 2018 8:08 pm
The topic title comes from an answer Bob gave to a question he was asked at a press conference in the 1960s. "Are you a happy man, Bob?" "Oh yes, I'm as happy as an ashtray."

From Blood on the Tracks, this is "Tangled Up In Blue":

This track from Highway 61 Revisited prompted the title of this topic back at our previous board:

There's a "Discuss & Rate Bob Dylan Songs" topic at PDF and today they were discussing & rating "Bob Dylan's 115th Dream". As so often in Bob's case, the studio version is not on YouTube--just the "false start" and accompanying laughter from producer Tom Wilson:

"Like A Rolling Stone" is the only Bob Dylan record I ever bought (back in '65). It still sounds great!
