Preamble


John Cohen on Harry Smith
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BouK7ZjJA6g

Back in the limousine, someone directed the driver to an underground movie house on Lafayette Street. Later on, when questioned about it, Dylan said they were all blindfolded and taken there at gunpoint. On the stage inside, there was no movie, but instead a group of green painted musicians were presenting a spontaneous ritual which had taken them three months to prepare. Timothy Cain, a friend of Dylan's whom they had run into under the marquee, grabbed the seat next to Dylan. 'Can you smoke here?' he asked Dylan. 'Of course you can smoke here,' replied Dylan. 'Put that cigarette out!' said a long-haired flowery girl who turned out to be an usherette. Timothy ignored her. The usherette left in a huff, returning moments later with a chubby man who wore a handlebar moustache and slippers. 'Put that cigarette out,' the chubby man said. 'Oh, my God,' said Dylan, 'it's Porky Oil.' Immediately, Timothy rose, grabbed the usherette's flashlight, unscrewed it, took the batteries out and threw the batteries at the Exit signs and proceeded to punch the chubby man in his ample stomach. At the same time, everyone in the party got up to leave as Dylan mumbled. 'What good are exits anyway?' 'I'm not an art fanatic,' said Timothy, 'I'm a cigarette-smoker.' 'I like you,' said Dylan. 'I wish we were both alive during Napoleon's time.'

Dolly Parton, Coat of Many Colors

Something I'd recommend to everyone is Lester Young The Alladin Sessions. There's a ballad he does, 'These Foolish Things.' The feeling is resignation beyond sadness, self-pity. That has affected my playing. But I don't have the discipline to play jazz myself. At the time though, I was stupid enough to think I could be a jazz musician.

Ruth Etting, I'll Get By, 1929
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1HqOJfZSewU

Roger Ebert wrote:His shabby appearance sets him apart and cues people to avoid and stereotype him; a tramp is not ... one of us. Unlike the Keaton characters, who have jobs and participate eagerly in society, the Tramp is an outcast, an onlooker, a loner.

That's what makes his relationship with the flower girl (Virginia Cherrill) so poignant; does she accept and treasure him only because she can't see what he looks like? (Her grandmother, who would no doubt warn her away from him, is never at home when the Tramp calls.) The last scene of “City Lights” is justly famous as one of the great emotional moments in the movies; the girl, whose sight has been restored by an operation paid for by the Tramp, now sees him as a bum--but smiles at him anyway, and gives him a rose and some money, and then, touching his hands, recognizes them. “You?” she asks on the title card. He nods, tries to smile, and asks, “You can see now?” “Yes,” she says, “I can see now.”

"I was madly in love with Richard... At the time, [1975] we had the same troubles. I felt insecure and he was clearly insecure, and yet he was so incredibly gifted....For me he [Richard] was the true light of the Band. The other guys were fantastic talents, of course, but there was something of the holy madman about Richard. He was raw. When he sang in that high falsetto the hair on my neck would stand on end. Not many people can do that."
