Shalom & Boker tov...you are quite correct. This is in Shabtai/Bob's personal archive.

Peter Van der Merwe, 1992. Origins of the popular style: the antecedents of twentieth-century popular music (Oxford University Press, new edn.), 352pp

Peter Van der Merwe, 2004. Roots of the classical: the popular origins of western music (Oxford University Press), 558pp

And, to complete the trinity...

Seth Rogovoy, 2000. The essential klezmer: a music lover's guide to Jewish roots & soul music (Algonquin Books of Chapel Hill), 281pp

Speaking of which...in 1996, while roaming Berkeley, in a bookshop window I saw what at first glance I thought was a ca. 1961 photograph of a young Shabtai Zisel/Bob Dylan in his distinctive cap on the cover of a CD. I put on my glasses, entered the shop, and picked it up. Michal Shapiro, ed., 1996. Klezmer music: a marriage of heaven & earth (Ellipsis Arts), 64pp (book + CD). The cover photograph is from YIVO, Institute of Jewish Research, and is Zisl, the Street Musician...in 1930s Poland, he was a marvel with the klezmer fiddle...and a doppelgaenger in photographs to Shabtai (who is, of course, quite familiar with the klezmer world)...

I know you're taking a little bit of heat and shit around here, Boker Tov, but I'm enjoying watching this whole Fractals scene develop and mix things up. You crack me up. Hang in there and enjoy!

Shalom & boker tov...a postscript...I am, of course, speaking of the photographs of Reb John Cohen from the spring of 1962 at his East Village loft and on the roof (where Shabtai Zisel wears the Zisl cap!). Within weeks, on the same roof, Reb Cohen made a short 'silent' of the poet...

One of the songs in a method book for younger guitar students has a song titled, The Troubador. Kids will ask me, "What's a troubadour?" I explain best I can but this photo is truly worth a thousand words!

Aside of the asides, can someone actually say anything useful about this book?

While on the subject of books, I'm just reading a quite entertaining one on Dylan's songs. It does mention Stephe/an Pickering a lot in connecting with uncirculating material. It says he owns electric & acoustic demos of Dylan doing Love Is Just A Four Letter Word, among others.

If anyone read Bob's explanation of the origin of the blues, it's a pretty impressive piece of research and shows the depth and dedication he puts into his craft. I liked how he said the blues is "part of my DNA". And of course, I still stand by my assertion that Bob Dylan is one of the greatest bluesmen America has ever produced - certainly the greatest white bluesman.
