Classic Lunch Finds “The Next New Dylans”!

Since Springsteen’s “Born To Run” is the Featured Album of the Day, your Blimp-Diner did a little research to find out which up-and-comers, like Bruce, got bagged and (in some cases, unfortunately) found themselves being called ”The Next Bob Dylan”…

First up, you heard Barry McGuire and “Eve Of Destruction”, followed by Steve Forbert’s “Romeo’s Tune” (well, he did title his album “Jackrabbit Slim”, which is pretty Zimmy!); you got Gordon Lightfoot’s epic “The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald”; Patti Smith’s “Dancing Barefoot” (OK, maybe she earns it with this one, actually); Paul Simon and “I Am A Rock” (definitely Dylanesque, with Garfunkel, of course!); the title track of John Prine’s classic “Illegal Smile” LP (he really is awesome; you probably have songs written by him & covered by other artists, and you don’t even know it!); Donovan’s “Season Of The Witch” (the Brits tried really hard to fop him off as the U.K.’s answer to his Bobness); Loudon Wainwrtight III “Down Drinking At The Bar”; Steve Earle “Feel Alright” (c’mon, he’s toured as Dylan’s opener and Bob’s even played some of Steve’s tunes live!); then, the underrated-beyond-belief talent of Randy Newman and “Political Science” and we wrapped it all up with “Jungleland” from “Born To Run”.

All in all, good stuff for playing in Bob’s ballpark! Tomorrow’s menu: “Guitars That Kill!!!”
