We're back here at ringside for the thrilling conclusion to this bizarre audio-matchup which was begun in our October first post. Cunning actor and car-fancier Sebastian "Killer" Cabot pits his able tongue and massive bulk against the barbed and velvet-covered pen of youth favorite Bob Dylan, light and lean but full of fight.
Those who missed the opening jabs in this historic contest will want to visit the previous blog entry for October 1st, 2011 to see how side one shaped up. Specifics of management and production of this epic mis-match were given in that first round, and right now without further ado we'll re-join the action on side two!
PS - Those of you who hate these types of posts - Let it be known that I am an outside writer-guest of WFMU / not a 'representative' of same (although I'd be tickled to REALLY be one). Point #2: Yes indeed, celebrity lps are indeed a 'tired' topic, however, there may be some out there who haven't heard any of this yet. #3: WFMU HAS advised us against too much of this sort of 'posting the whole darned copyrighted record' nonsense and I occasionally slip and still do it anyway. Apologies to those companies for whom this post will "spoil" your opportunity to re-release this album (unlikely, since it's available for free in numerous places already). Also, this lp has been well-known to the public and certain companies who re-release many things of this sort for over 25 years and it STILL hasn't seen a proper new edition so I'm not sure how many toes are getting squished here. #4: In general, I'd like all of my posts to be more well-researched and scholarly, really, but Sebastian Cabot was deceased and unavailable for comment, and Bob Dylan did not respond to our questions. #5: Actually, I do greatly respect this material and other records even loopier, admittedly, the framing of this post does seem like I'm "smirking" at the project and dissing it, but such is definitely NOT the case. Apologies for my sense of 'humor' getting in the way of the deadly serious business of blogging here at WFMU.
