Effie! A man after me own heart - someone who appreciates a Dylan way with words the way I do...

One of my favorite Dylan tunes.
I've used that lyric in many political debates.

Dylan, actually borrowed the first line from Samuel Johnson:

http://www.samueljohnson.com/patrioti.html#114

On Columbus Day, 1992, we went to a show that was billed as "The Healing Of The Hoop" - a celebration of Native Americans surviving 500 years under the white man's rule. Bill Graham organized it, and it was held at Shoreline Amphitheater in Mountain View, Ca.
Performers included Bonnie Raitt, Little Feat, Don Henley, and others.
Henley performed a very well thought out set, nearly knocking me out of my seat when he did a very obscure song - Danny O'Keefe's "Chief Joseph". The song is not on any album, and I'd only heard it one other time - by Danny, himself.
Anyway, Henley finished his set with this Dylan song... "What's a Sweetheart Like You Doin' in a Dump Like This?"
Shoreline had been built on an old landfill.
The first year it was opened, the lawn area would, literally, catch on fire from the emitting methane gas! During the following off-season, they had to install a gas extracting system.

The album that Sweetheart comes from, Infidels is brilliant and very underrated IMHO......

Brilliant, INDEED!

I don't know how it could be underrated with a line like this:

Bob Dylan -- Guitar, Harmonica, Keyboards
Sly Dunbar -- Drums, Percussion
Robbie Shakespeare -- Bass
Mick Taylor -- Guitar
Mark Knopfler -- Guitar
Alan Clark -- Keyboards

"Jokerman" is another of my Dylan favs!

"Then they burry him with stars..........sell his body like they do used cars....."

I love the Infidels album. It suffers a bit from the 80's production style though. If you really listen to that album, there's so much in the lyrics that seems to be taking place now. Like the quote from Dad of 2 and the one above from License to Kill. What's really interesting to me about this era are the youtube clips from when Bob went on Letterman to promote the album. He had a real garage band style that sounded nothing like the album. I would of preffered the album in the more raw style..

I also love all the Infidels outtakes (on Bootleg Series Vol. 1-3): Tell Me, Lord Protect My Child,
Foot of Pride and Blind Willie McTell. Anytime time I listen to Infidels I like to listen to those outtakes
alongside the official album.

Possibly my favorite Dylan LP. I prefer this one over Blood on the Tracks.

I remember that ROLLING STONE gave INFIDELS **** 1/2 when they reviewed it back in 1983. I remember the "Sweetheart Like You" video played on MTV, a rather subdued video, but great nonetheless.

I eventually bought it on LP in college and it became by favorite Dylan LP of the 80s decade, until DYLAN & THE DEAD came out, which is my second favorite of the era.

"Once knew a man" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfX-OwSOFTQ
from this rehearsals for this Letterman appearance.

when I was about 19, back in about '83 I could swear I remember a live talk show performance of Dylan performing "SweetHeart Like You", coulda swore it was Letterman. Dylan wore like a long floor length coat and kept ducking in and out of the camera shot, it was a killer version, but I've never been able to find any referance or record of this. Does anyone recall this? its driven me nuts for a long time....................Peace.......joe

Love that's pure, it don't make no claims,
Intercedes for you 'stead of casting you blame,
Will not deceive you or lead you to transgression,
Won't write it up and make you sign a false confession.
