    The Hawks were a down-and-dirty R&B band at the time, and at first they were deeply skeptical about playing with some folkie. And Dylan's audience called him Judas for playing with them!

    Oh yeah. The were booed mercilessly. So much so that Levon Helm quit and went to work on an oil rig in Louisiana.
    It took a lot of self-belief to punch through that.

    I’ve seen that. It was . . . a surprise.

    That would be strange.

    Joe Pass’ last album was with Roy Clark. I have great admiration for both of these masters of the guitar, but never thought I’d hear them together.

    Slayer and Ice T doing a medly of songs by the 80’s British leather punk band The Exploited for the Judgement Night Soundtrack. That record had all kinds of weird pairings of rock bands and M.C.’s, but this was the craziest. I still love it.

    It worked far better than one would imagine, but Jeff Beck taking the solo in "Barbara Ann" was just strange.

    That really doesn’t surprise me. They ran in the same circle.

    I'd forgotten about that album! It was in heavy rotation at our teenage parties circa 1993.

    Same here. The only tracks I revisit are the Slayer/IceT medley and the Teenage Fanclub/De la Soul song “Fallin”. So good.

    That doesn't surprise me too much. Folkies did duets all of the time.
