Lou,

Thanks for that nice Van Ronk piece.  Don't you get the feeling that Dylan 
might have bailed out after Europe and the motorcycle accident.  It is 
interesting to compare Van Ronk's accounts with Dylans.

For more general consideration by those who have an interest in the Dylan 
thread -- has it occurred to anyone besides myself that Dylan's 
"Subterranean Homesick Blues", in its verbal structure, is a precursor of 
rap?
