Dylan Hears a Who

dylanjpg.jpg Don Aicardi (aka the “Egg Roll King”), roots archivist extraordinaire and our favorite authority on all things Dylan, passes along this classic new bit of inspired insanity, featuring a faux mid-sixties Dylan voice assaulting Green Eggs and Ham, the Zax, and the Cat in the Hat, among other bits of classic Dr. Seuss. I wish he’d also taken on Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You?, but it’s really hard to quibble. As these things go, it’s even better than Bruce Springstone: Live at Bedrock, and almost as good as the Temple City Kazoo Orchestra’s all-kazoo version of Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love.”

    Now stop right there, Mr. Moore!
    Bruce Springstone still rules supreme.
    “Wilma, I’m home, honey” has to be one of the rawest, most emotionally expressive pieces of fluff ever recorded.
    ‘Nuff said.

    Hey, I just checked that website and it looks like the uptight Dr. Suess pople put the hammer on the website-it is gone! Well, as Bob himself would say, “You’ve got a lotta nerve to say you are my friend…………” I was hoping that they would slip “the ghost of electricity howls in the bones of her face……” into Horton Hears A Who.

    What’s really interesting here is that the front door of the site now says “At the request of Dr. Seuss Enterprises, this site has been retired.”

    In other words, it was the book industry, not the music industry, Hoo apparently uttered the cease-and-desist. Not your every day Lorax, not at all.

    Happily it’s all available through p*rate b*y as a torrent called “Dylan Does Cat In The Hat.” All the complete ‘album’ cover and such comes with the tunes.

    If it doesn’t make your Mom sad or you Dad mad better go and gitit while it can be had. Or as the Cat said, Screw Hoo.
