Thank you for introducing me to Loma, Sarah-Jane. I like that a lot and others I subsequently listened to.

I'd never heard of Loma, Sarah-Jane. Loved what I heard (like Mark, I ended up listening to more of their music). It reminded me somewhat of Julee Cruise. Thank you!

There's probably about 6 or 7 Dylan albums that I adore (and some Bootlegs as well), and even though I probably like a few others more than it, the one I always get a pick up from is Desire:

The segue that merges ‘Romance in Durango’ into ‘Black Diamond Bay’ on side 2 is sheer beauty.

In fact, I think side 2 of Desire is one of Dylan’s most exotic and mercurial moments (the aforementioned songs along with ‘Joey’ and ‘Sara’). I like to think of ‘Joey’ as a Scorsese gangster film in song and verse.

In fact it’s an incredibly cinematic album: you go from a boxer framed for murder in a Jersey bar, to two cowboys on the adventure of a lifetime to the pyramids, to the beaches of Mozambique, to the gypsies of Southern France, to a Scorsese gangster tale, to a bloodthirsty Peckinpah Western in Durango, to the Bogart-inspired Black Diamond Bay where a volcano is about to erupt on a tropic isle, and then you finish with the white goddess Sara (who inspired Sad-Eyed Lady of the Lowlands).

G'day Bill, sorry I'm only about three weeks late with my reply - I somehow completely missed it. Love your taste in music. The Rumjacks are Bobby Dazzlers! Love them.

So, two songs I keep listening to at the moment:

John Prine, "Lake Marie": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vzCjQwt2rgI

and The Band covering Springsteen's "Atlantic City", off his Nebraska: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QFxXTO1t5yo

Both I find simply inexhaustible. Levon Helm's voice, for one thing. "There's winners and there's losers, and I'm south of the line" is The Band's invention.

Cheers,
John

"Down here it's just winners and losers and don't get caught on the wrong side of that line"

is in Springsteen's original.

This is so. The Boss in that particular moment reminds me a bit of the old limerick:

There was a young man of Japan
Whose limericks never would scan.
When asked why this was
He said: It's because
I always try to cram as many syllables into the last line as ever I possibly can.

OK, I canít resist. Thereís a sequel which I find absolutely worthy of mention:

There was a young fellow of China,
Whose metrical scheme was much finer.
It was his design
To make the last line
Short.
