apocryphal dylan & zimmermania


Hee hee hee … wanna buy some mandies? Just out: It’s Zimmerman’s World …We Just Live In It (Soft Sounds For Gentle People Garage And Folk Rock Tributes To The Beatnik Bard)on Pet (cd or lp, cat. no. 009). Amazingly, that most ultimate of Bob spoofs or Dylan imitations, A public executionby Mouse and the Traps (Fraternity 1966 – see below), isn’t on it. (And neither is the Trashmen‘s downright irritatingSame linesfor that matter.). Oh well, you’ll probably have that Mouse track via that seminal and oft reissued Nuggets: Original Artyfacts From The First Psychedelic Erav/a 2lp or cd on Elektra (1972), won’t you? If not: see below. Otherwise, bar the omission of Dutch Dylan Armand and the 5 Gentlemen track below, It’s Zimmerman’s World … We Just Live In Itis pretty flawless. And hilarious, for those maniac mannerisms and how they reflect on both the Bawb phenomenon and the copy and cash in routines that are part and parcel of the pop industry. So go buy it! And if you do not pay, they got computer collectors that’ll send you through the ceiling!

reed ayers & lou kevin

Computer says no & Wiki fails to mention it’s the best Lou Reed parody ever … Kevin Ayers recorded his early version (bonus track on the 2003 cd remaster) on 1971-07-09, and released his final version of Stranger in blue suede shoes1972-01 on his third solo lp Whatevershebringswesingon Harvest … who’d already released it as a single by Kevin Ayers and the Whole World somewhere in 1971 … Funky lyrics too …
