      And of course the music people of the early 60's said Dylan couldn't sing (well, OK, he can't, but you see what I'm getting at). I hear songs quite frequently I like. I posted a link to Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy". You can't tell me that's not a VERY GOOD song!

            squack, I'd really, really like to agree with you, but . . . do you remember that our parents' generation weren't impressed with 'our' music? And today's generation, while agreeing that 'our' music is 'cool', much prefer their own. My father, who was VERY much into music, used to lament the fact that the high standards of the Swing Era had fallen so low by the 60s and 70s. I think 'our' music will stand the test of time, but so will much of today's, and it will probably NEVER measure up to that hip sound of those cool cats of the 1700s: Beethoven, Bach, Mozart, etc. I listen to a group like Outkast today and I have to admit they have as much going on as 'my' groups. On the other hand, NO ONE will ever convince me that the Beatles and Stones and Led Zep are NOT musical geniuses. Elvis was 'just' another Frank Sinatra, and the Beach Boys only had a late brief surge to the top of the critical ladder. Dylan and Springsteen were better spokesmen of their generations than musicians. Pink Floyd was definitely inventive, but so are many groups today.

            As they say, only time will tell . . .

              Read the original again: he's not trashing anybody who's creating music. He's trashing the recording industry for bad technological standards.

                Oh man if only that was true, the only thing wrong with todays pop music is production values?

                  I lost hope when Bobby Darren said goodbye to Sandra Dee.

                  Somewhere waiting for me,
                  My lover stand and golden sands,
                  and watches the ships go sailing.

                    Thanks Garry. Dylan is talking about the technical quality of the recordings, not the artists. He's saying you can't hear the little tweaks, like guitar strings, multiple instruments, and harmonizing voices.
                    This is why there is still a demand for phonograph records, as some music lovers feel there is a much richer sound from plastic.

                      I am afraid you have James Darren (The Time Tunnel) and Bobby Darin mixed up.
