The rules are simple - one vote a day (Amazon time). Dylans 60's albums will be voted on one album at a time. There is no negative vote. I have alloted (hey, it's my game) x number of songs from each album to go to the next round. Each song starts at zero, when it reaches 10 votes it goes to the next round. There will be a total of 36 songs reaching the next round - thanks to Alex for showing alternate ways of voting.

Albums included (and # of songs going to the next round) -

Bob Dylan (1) Song To Woody was the song voted to move on.
Freewheelin' (3) - Don't Think Twice, It's Alright - A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall - and Masters Of War were voted to move on.
Times (3) - The Times They Are A-Changin' - Boots Of Spanish Leather - and Only A Pawn In Their Game were voted to move on.
Another Side (3) My Back Pages - It Ain't Me Babe - and Chimes Of Freedom were voted to move on.
Bringing (4) Love Minus Zero/ No Limit - It's All Over Now, Baby Blue - It's Alright Ma (I'm Only Bleeding) - and Subterranean Homesick Blues were voted to move on.
Hwy. 61 (4) Like A Rolling Stone - Desolation Row - Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues - and Highway 61 Revisited were voted to move on.
Blonde (5) Visions Of Johanna - Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again - 4th Time Around - Rainy Day Women #12 & 35 - and I Want You were voted to move on.
60's Non- Album Songs (4) - Positively 4th Streeet - I Shall Be Released - This Wheel's On Fire - and You Ain't Goin' Nowhere were voted to move on.
JW Harding (3) - All Along The Watchtower - I'll Be Your Baby Tonight - and The Ballad Of Frankie Lee And Judas Priest were voted to move on.
Nashville (2) Girl From The North Country (with J. Cash) and I Threw It All Away were voted to move on.

Max - thanks for voting. I'd be perfectly happy with Baby... moving on. Myself, just kind of wanted a self-penned song to vote for.

spotty: I suspected that might have been behind your vote. I do like Woody, but enjoy hearing Baby better.

It's not self-penned but the the vocal is pure Dylan and for that, it just might be better than The Animal's version: "House"+1

Something about voting for a song Dylan didn't write seems wrong, but he made that one his own

Lew Archer says:
Kudos to you, Spottopotomous, for doing this one.

I've had "Dylan in the 60's" written out and ready to go for a while, but was hesitant to introduce it while there were so many others out there.

I was also concerned that a lot of "nugget" tunes might get lost in a long list by some of the less fanatical "Bob-ites", and I think the format you've chosen here addresses that issue nicely.

So again, thanks for this, and for a job well done.

Caught Bob in Berkeley (with Tom Petty) in '86 and again in Concord, CA (with Santana opening) in '93.

I gave the cd a listen last night as well and I have to agree. I am going to give each cd a refresher before I vote.

I know I said this round was only going to 5 but I'm changing that to 10. We have 11 current voters and 7 of those from yesterday only have voted the 1 time, doesn't seem fair. If you can rally enough support to overtake Woody than so be it. All other albums will have the 10 vote rule. I'm going to give Freewheeling a spin today, with the exception of Hwy.61 not sure when I last listened start to finish to some of these. It's a pleasant enough task I'd say. Thanks to all for playing.
