Aww, you guys just won't give Paul a break will you!!   ;)

I have tried not to speculate on Paul's reasons for not using his superstar buddies. I just wanted to show that such an idea was not as fantastical as some people have said.
And I see your distinction between using them for recording and touring.
I think it's obvious that Paul tried to keep his immediate post-Beatle career relatively low key compared to the others. If I were to speculate I would put it down to a loss of confidence rather than a desire to surround himself with yes-men. He got a lot of (unfair in my opinion) bad press over the breakup, and he may not have felt overly comfortable in the kind of company the others were keeping. And I find that very understandable. To his credit his approach worked better in the long run -the quality of his work increased while the others deteriorated.

Bob must be thinking he's gotten too popular.  So he's shilling for Cadillac.  Check out the ads.  http://blogs.guardian.co.uk/music/2007/10/bob_dylan_is_the_sellouttiest.html

My first question is when did Bob start talking like a transsexual Wolfman Jack?  Second, why the pimp-mobile Escalade of all the cars he could possibly pimp?  At least they used The Clash for Jaguar.  

Third, is Bob really just a real-life form of Krusty the Clown--who found that he was ultimately better at selling out than being a "serious" clown?  (Remember the Simpson's episode about the Canyonero?  Bob's driving a Canyonero!  With black leather "driving gloves"!)

Finally, who in the Escalade-buying demographic listens to, or cares about Bob?  

This is truly puzzling.

Dylan's bootlegs are great. Bootleg series volume 4- the version of visions of johanna is soooo awesome. I like volume six but I think the song choice could have been improved. I love dylan more than anything and all my friends just don't understand.

The Basement Tapes are about the loosest and unself-counscious you can ever hear Dylan.  Garth's organ is pretty cool throughout.  Too bad these two couldn't get together to make a record for old times.  "Crash on the Levee" is a perfect example: the version on Greatest Hits II is very respectable, if not austere, but the version on Basement Tapes is goofy and downright spooky at the same time.  Some blues phantoms were visiting Big Pink.

I think I must be one of the only people in the world who likes the Dylan album from 1973. I think his version of Big Yellow Taxi is great.

I like "Senor" and "Changing Of The Guard." I think it was first record after 1975's Desire and his marriage had ended in the interim, which perhaps explains the record's mood. It's a patchy album, but more good than bad.
