I prefer northern hip hop:  Buck 65, Million Stylez, Werd (S.O.S), etc.

All these arguments are immaterial. As Luke explained on the show, he is more of a Rock and Roll guy than a rap guy. Peter Frampton. Steve Miller. Luther Campbell. There is a direct lineage.

He said so.

In retrospect, this was my favorite moment of last night's show.

HARDCORE HIP HOP STINKS TO HIGH HEAVEN, PETS !!!!

The best thing about your cometary Spike is that it's never predictable or tiresome.

I wont start complaining about Spike quite yet. When I start using "pet" as a term of endearment, on the other hand...

Worst moment of last night's show happened 10 minutes ago.   When I realized what Tom was saying to Larry and Spike.

I pledge not to call the Dusty Show (or any other) until the premium arrives.

I don't want to exercise the Grandfather escape clause.

Julie stay quiet, please.

Tom's impersonation of Nashville Skyline-era Dylan was uncanny!


It was a pretty great impression. I'd put it right below his Isabel Sanford.

I've cooled a lot on Bob Dylan since I was in high school, but I still have a soft spot for NASHVILLE SKYLINE. The guy just wanted to sing some country winners!

My favorite from that record:

It ain't ego, it's my love for you.

Yeah, it's possibly my favorite bob album maybe just for its conspicuousness.

If not for the motorcycle accident, I think he would have probably spent the next ten years trying to make another 'Blonde on Blonde.'

Fredericks -

I am requesting that you call whenever it strikes you. Because you call with things to say and it's an enjoyable conversation almost every time.

The situation that I am dealing with has absolutely zero to do with you.

Please continue to call.

Tom.

I dunno how many people here know this, but for what it's worth, if you go back to the very earliest Dylan recordings, made back in Hibbing when he was in his teens, there are some that sound uncannily like his Nashville Skyline voice.  It's eerie.

The evidence is kinda mixed.  The hotel-room recordings he made on the '66 tour suggest that he was considering turning toward a more straightforwardly confessional love song (and if he'd gone on to record and release "Does She Need Me?" he might have had to fight a lawsuit like George Harrison's for stealing the melody of Bobby Bland's "Share Your Love with Me.")  On the other hand, in Scorsese's "No Direction Home" doc, there's a scene where he spontaneously riffs off some advertising signs to produce a word salad that foreshadows the wilder verbal surrealism of "The Basement Tapes."

Oh, uh, we were talking about the best/worst moments from last night's show?

Well, I laughed the hardest when Tom just could not find the words ("stomach-churning" was one he tried) to describe the sheer depravity of AP Mike's question for Uncle Luke--when he himself said at the beginning of the show that that's what he wanted to ask him.

Was it intentional or unintentional to follow the send-up of ironic, hipster, low-culture worship with the disingenuous ironic interview with Luther Campbell?  "Too Live Crew songs are so stupid. It's great."

I think I'm in the minority, but it didn't work for me. I would have preferred if Tom and Luke argued about their differences (which is what Luke expected) rather than Tom/John pretending to be fans.

Couldn't have said it better myself.   Tom and Jon pretending to be fans stunk of elitism, cowardice, and, above all else, ignorance.  Dismiss him for the content of his lyrics if you want but Luther Campbell is a VERY important figure in the history of Southern hip hop.

as someone who has met him, i can also say he's creepy. BELIEVE IT OR NOT.
Too soon?

Intelligent people take Southern hip hop seriously? I mean, I think it all stinks but the Southern brand takes it to another level.

Ooh one of us is wrong.

hint: it's Alex P.
