艾伦·洛马克斯(Alan Lomax)名言

我认识鲍比·迪伦,那时候他住在村子里。他过去常来看我,为我唱歌,说这些歌应该写进我的下一本美国民间音乐集。

英国民谣成为他们手中的一种新形式。蓝调从中诞生了,一种新的评论和讽刺歌曲,一种毕竟已经成为整个人类主要音乐形式的歌曲形式。

He learned through the way that my father and I felt about his songs, his country songs, that they were great songs. And then he went out and sang them for the audiences that we found, and he found a tremendous reaction to that.

他通过这种方式了解到我和父亲对他的歌曲,他的乡村歌曲的感觉,他们是伟大的歌曲。然后他出去为我们找到的观众演唱,他发现了巨大的反响。
