Today at THT

Things to read as you realize that, in optimizing and synchronizing the iPod, your wife has somehow managed to delete 11 Bob Dylan albums yet somehow kept “Street Legal” on there:

  • As you know, THT lost one of our own in John Brattain last week. Over the past few days the THT authors have been reflecting and then writing down their thoughts about John. The results are here.
  • Victor Wang has part 3 of his farm system rankings. This is kind of opposite of how the bar exam results work. Here, if you don’t see your favorite team, it’s a good thing.
  • Every year THT releases its own player projections. No, I don’t participate in that, so you can be assured that they’re reliable. Well, mostly reliable, as David Gassko, in a pique of troubling intellectual honesty, lists 29 players whose projections he believes we got wrong.
  • Finally, Steve Treder has five questions for the San Francisco Giants. Question number six: Will Brian Sabean cut off that mullet after the season is over? Because really, if you’re going to be out there in the job market like he should be come this fall, neatness matters.
  • Don’t get me wrong: “The Groom’s Still Waiting at the Altar” is a fine damn song. I’m just saying that it’s cold comfort when you realize that you’re going to have to re-rip “Bringing it All Back Home” and everything else this evening.

    And, don’t forget “Senor.”  That song is awesome.

    Why did you only have a dozen Dylan albums on your iPod?

    BTW, Old Zim is giving away a free download of a cut from his upcoming record at bobdylan.com – today only.

    Harry, Thanks for the head’s up!  Maybe it’s wrong to say this, but I wish he was teasing upcoming passages from volume 2 of his autobiography.  That needs to come out soon. As for Dylan, there are more than a dozen. SL was just one of the ones that is still on there. Not that anynone cares, but here’s what I have Dylan wise (or will have once it’s fixed) on the iPod: Bob Dylan Freewheelin Times they are a-changin’ Another Side BIABH Highway 61 Blonde on Blonde John Wesley Harding Nashville Skyline Before the Flood Basement Tapes Blood on… Read more »

    FYI, they are releasing a remastered version of New Morning tomorrow.  If that’s not a sign, I don’t know what is.
    Do you have the 1964 Philharmonic Hall concert (Bootleg Series, Vol. 6)?  That’s a really good one, if you like that era.

    A sign it is.  I’m all over it.

    I did miss one: I have tha Gaslight CD that Starbucks put out a couple of years ago too.

    I don’t have the Philharmonic, and I’ll admit, I’ve lost track of the bootleg releases. There’s a Rolling Thunder-era one too, right?  And maybe one that covers 1997-Modern Times?

    I highly recommend the Rolling Thunder set, although some of the bootlegs from that tour are better performance wise.

    There’s nothing wrong with redundancy.  Or with repeating yourself.

    Blonde on Blonde
    Blood on the Tracks
    Bringing It All Back Home
    Empire Burlesque
    GH3
    Infidels
    Knocked Out Loaded
    Rolling Thunder Review
    Gaslight
    Modern Times
    New Morning
    Oh Mercy
    Planet Waves

    I shouldn’t talk smack – I’m loaded with those 13 albums, various singles, 10 boots, plus the Cash sessions and Dylan and the Dead and those rehearsals (talk about rough)
