World Tour, 1966
The Home Movies
Through the Camera of Bob Dylan’s Drummer Mickey Jones
What is it about Dylan, then and now, that makes that voice so damn sexy, so damn workable. I mean, I can listen to “Stuck inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues.” and I practically melt every time, especially when he says Your debutante knows what you neeeeed, but I know what you waaaant…” and that “oh, Mama, or “ahhhugh, mama.” It could even be crude coming from someone else, but from Dylan it is damn sexy.
On anyone else it would sound cheap and stupid, but with Dylan… as I said: never.
