    Listen to: "Rock And Roll Time". It reminds me so much of Ramones and the Clash! (and right from the same time as Ramones debut album) :3

    TheSgtPepper: Yes, Dylan was referencing the lyrically mistake McGuinn made on the Byrds version.

    I saw Roger McGuinn play my dinky little hometown. He opened with my favorite, My Back Pages and closed with Turn, Turn, Turn. Dude is the Hendrix of folk.

    most of all like Round Table and Dreamland...but Back From Rio, in my opinion, on of the best of his creations....
