BOB DYLAN Nashville Skyline
While pop evolves into rock, guitars get heavier and drum solos are obligaroy, Bob Dylan goes the opposite way, joining forces with Johnny Cash. In fact, he returns to his very source.
“Most obviously, Nashville Skyline continues Dylan’s rediscovered romance with rural music (here complete with a more suitable, subtle “country” voice). The new LP represents a natural progression, both historically and emotionally, from the folk-music landscapes of John Wesley Harding into the more modern country-and-western worlds of Hank Williams, Elvis, Johnny Cash, Buddy Holly, The Everly Bros and Jerry Lee Lewis”.

BEAT & MIKE VICKERS
“In 1963, Merseybeat took the pop music world by storm. By mid-1965, that storm had calmed down. The charts were occupied by tougher sounds, with more beat, and more rhythm and blues. The Rolling Stones scored with ‘Satisfaction’, The Animals with ‘We’ve Gotta Get Out Of This Place’, The Who unleashed ‘Ayway, Anyhow, Anywhere’. Why, some groups would even try a little experiment – think The Beatles and The Byrds.
By the end of 1965, the high days of several typical Merseybeat groups were over, such as The Swinging Blue Jeans, The Merseys, The Merseybeats, Wayne Fontana, Brian Poole…
Groups with more punch had more success or succeeded in continuing it – The Hollies, Manfred Mann (still jazz-inspired) – even the lightweight ones like Herman’s Hermits. In Holland, Q65 was on a level with The Pretty Things “(EB)
Mike Vickers is a man who wears a coat of many colors: original Manfred Mann guitarist, A&R man for EMI, arranger and producer extraordinaire, composer and the beat goes on. He left Manfred Mann in 1966 and by 1967 he had released his debut LP. Long before the likes of The Mike Flowers Pops (remember their 15 minutes in the 90’s?) Mike’s album was, and still is, a kitsch classic. Utilizing a selection of interpretation’s of “easy” versions of then contemporary standards alongside a smattering of his own compositions, “I Wish I Were A Group Again” is slice of 1967 documenting when hip met camp. What is interesting about it is that Vickers was a 25-“year old former member of a pop group, not an old school composer or arranger capitalizing on the “young sound” like Enoch Light or Tony Hatch”.
