Bob Dylan

I must have been about 16 when I discovered Bob Dylan. His lyrics are what did it for me. I then went to see him in concert when I was in my twenties – and was so disappointed. He just stood there singing to his feet and mumbling. It’s funny that I am a child of the 70’s and yet the music of the 60’s is what really resonates with me……I suppose it isn’t that funny when I think about the records I grew up playing as a kid.

For Christmas this year I splashed out and bought myself a new record player. I have quite a record collection and had been lamenting for a few years that I couldn’t play them. Kitty & I have been putting records on during the day and dancing around the dining room. Milo thinks its great fun too. I have such fond memories of playing Mum & Dad’s records when I was a kid and making up dances. I think at one stage I even charged my parents to come and see my performance. Ever the entrepreneur!

Hey Morgs

Did you ever listen to Arlo Guthrie? You should have my old Alice's
Restaurant album. He is the son of Woody Guthrie, a very well known old
folk singer, who I think had some influence on Bob Dylan's music.

There was a movie starring Arlo in the late 60's called Alice's
Restaurant as well. The actual song of the same title is so whimsical -
I always loved it. It used to make me laugh every time I heard it.

'You can get everything you want at Alice's Restaurant........' I won't
tell you the need to hear it yourself. It's very long, by
the way. So make yourself and Sam a cuppa or grab a glass of wine and
sit down sometime and play it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I used to.
