60s hitmakers Manfred Mann: ‘I’ve sung this 10,000 times and never liked it!’

They had screaming fans and transatlantic hits as part of the 60s’ British invasion – an unlikely result for a band of jazz and blues heads. Still touring as the Manfreds, they look back on one of the strangest catalogues in UK popIn an office in the middle of Pinewood Studios, former members of Manfred Mann are discussing their EP The One in the Middle. It was recorded in 1964, at the height of their first flush of fame – between the first and second sessions for the EP, their single Do Wah Did...

Bob Dylan Announces Fall 2021 Tour Dates

For decades, Bob Dylan has been consistently hitting the road on what he calls the Never Ending Tour. Last year COVID-19 put a stop to that. Despite releasing his exceptional Rough And Rowdy Ways, Dylan had to pause his touring operation. The only show he’s played since releasing the album was the ticketed Shadow Kingdom livestream. He hasn’t played a conventional gig in front of an audience since December 2019. But like many artists, he’s heading back out to play some concerts again in this pos...

Watch The Trailer For New Karen Dalton Documentary In My Own Time

Karen Dalton, the extremely talented folk blues singer who left Oklahoma and became a major part of the growing Greenwich Village folk scene in New York City in the ’60s, only released two albums before fading into obscurity and eventually dying of AIDS at 55. Contemporaries like Bob Dylan have long championed Dalton’s work, and she’s now the subject of the new documentary Karen Dalton: In My Own Time, directed Robert Yapkowitz and Richard Peete and executive produced by Wim Wenders.

"The pay was 9 pounds — about $17. With two young children to feed, she showed up at 8:30 p.m. to tune her harp and was handed a piece of sheet music."

Only later did she learn that the notes she played were to be the intro on 'She’s Leaving Home' by the Beatles.... Mrs. Bromberg’s harp intro and rhythm, backed by a full string section, set the poignant tone of the track before Paul McCartney (who recorded separately) began the lyric 'Wednesday morning at 5 o’clock as the day begins.'...  She played harp on two early James Bond films starring Sean Connery — 'Dr. No' (1962) and 'Goldfinger' (1964)... She also performed the solo intro to the 1976...

"Michelle Obama said that it was 'the best piece of art in any form that I have ever seen,' an observation that put Michelangelo, Mozart and Miles Davis in their place."

"There have been a few detractors but most have been confined to isolated pockets of social media, like guerrilla fighters facing overwhelming odds. What is it that generates so much excitement?... [W]hatever [Hamilton]’s true merits, it has at least bridged the ever-growing gap between Broadway and popular song. Think of it, if you like, as Les Mis for the beatbox generation. Just as the Boublil and Schönberg celebration of life on the Parisian barricades goes overboard with the bombast, so Mir...

“Love And Theft” Turns 20

“I contain multitudes,” Bob Dylan proclaimed at the start of his 2020 album Rough And Rowdy Ways. It’s a line that virtually only he and the poet he borrowed it from — Walt Whitman — could get away with. Who’s going to argue with Bob? At this point, his body of work is nothing short of monumental, an incomparably rich and wide-ranging oeuvre that defies categorization. Of course, had the Dylan saga come to an end with the 20th century, his legacy would have been secure. But miraculously, the las...

A 94-Year-Old English Teacher and Her Former Students Reunite in Their Old Classroom & Debate the Merits of Bob Dylan’s Nobel Prize

In fiction the inspirational high-school English teacher is a cliché, despite (or indeed due to) the fact that so many of us have had at least one of them in real life. For generations of students who passed through San Francisco’s prestigious Lowell High School, that teacher was Flossie Lewis. Long after her retirement, she went surprisingly viral in a 2016 PBS interview clip about her thoughts on aging. It seemed she retained her power to inspire, not just for her more than seven milli...

"For all the apparent ease with which their voices blended together and the talk of the ineffable power and artlessness of fraternal harmonising, Phil said..."

"... their singing was a complex, intricate, high-wire act based around diatonic thirds, with his older brother – who tended to sing the leads – very much in charge. 'He’s so good, I have to pay attention every second with my harmonies... It’s like playing tennis with someone who is really great. You can’t let your mind wander for a nanosecond.'... Paul Simon called them 'the most beautiful-sounding duo I ever heard,' Bob Dylan claimed 'we owe these guys everything – they started it all,' while ...

Watch Bon Iver Play Fest Protesting Enbridge Line 3 Pipeline, Their First Show Since Pandemic

Right now, the Canadian oil company Enbridge is proposing Line 3, a massive pipeline expansion to take tar-sand oil from Alberta to Wisconsin. This pipeline would cut across Minnesota, and it could cause environmental devastation and cold violate treaty rights of Anishinaabe peoples and nations. Naturally, a whole lot of people in Minnesota would love to stop this pipeline from being built. Last night in Duluth, as part of a Stop Line 3 benefit, Bon Iver played their the pandemic began last year...

Bob Dylan Biographer Says Alleged Abuse Victim’s Timeline Is “Not Possible”

Earlier this week, a woman sued Bob Dylan for sexual abuse. The woman, identified only as JC, claimed that Dylan abused JC multiple times over a six-week period in 1965, when she was 12 years old, and that he “lower[ed] [J.C.’s] inhibitions with the object of sexually abusing her, which he did, coupled with the provision of drugs, alcohol and threats of physical violence, leaving her emotionally scarred and psychologically damaged to this day.” Dylan’s lawyers denied the claim. Now, one of Dylan...

Singer Judy Collins recalls Leonard Cohen, and talks new podcast, album and tour

Judy Collins says she is more than happy to give credit where it is due: Her new podcast, “Since You’ve Asked,” was her manager’s idea. “I’m so happy to be able to say that,” the singer says by phone from her home in New York City recently. “My manager is so smart. She said, ‘I’d like you to do some podcasts,’ and I said, ‘Great!’” But it’s Collins’ own intelligence and curiosity that makes “Since You’ve Asked” such an engaging listen. Episodes have so far included writer and teacher Julia Camer...

The lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, was filed in New York State Supreme Court last Friday, right before the expiration of the state’s Child Victims Act, which allowed victims of childhood abuse to file suits against their attackers regardless of whether the claim had passed beyond the statue of limitations.

Bowie, bed-hopping and the blues: the wild times of Dana Gillespie

She tamed Keith Moon, got laughed into bed by Bob Dylan and went to a young David Bowie’s house for tuna sandwiches – but the blues singer’s 72 albums are what really define her“No one has understood how deeply rooted in music I am because they got distracted by my tits,” Dana Gillespie complains.Now 72, the singer and songwriter’s curvaceous figure ensured she regularly appeared in both tabloids and films from the 1960s to 80s but, she says, this was a mere sideline: music was always her missio...

Laura Nyro: the phenomenal singers’ singer the 60s overlooked

With a soaring, open-hearted voice and ingeniously crafted compositions, Nyro transformed a range of influences into her own kind of art song. She made vertiginous shifts from hushed re...

"Whenever someone wants to play down the importance of vocal virtuosity, Bob Dylan is Exhibit A: a brilliant croaker..."

"... who makes you feel sorry for all those hacks content to simply carry a tune. But for precisely that reason, Mr. Dylan isn't really a bad singer. He's got an unconventional voice, to be sure... but he's too idiosyncratic, too rock 'n' roll. A great bad singer must never give up on goodness. Perhaps Mr. West knows how preposterous he sounds, but he's still singing the best he can. I'd propose that the father of modern bad singing is Biz Markie, the rapper best known for the classic anti-love...

How the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Prince and more became photographic icons

For Gered Mankowitz, a rock ‘n’ roll photographer in England in the ’60s, it was a constant fight to have the pictures he made of artists such as the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix and the Small Faces taken seriously. “It was the packaging, it was something to knock off, it was a glossy to be given to a magazine,” Mankowitz says on a recent video call. “And yet I and dozens of my contemporaries were trying so hard to make the best of it, to try and do something special, stretch the genre, and give...
