In Ascending Poll # § Descending Vote Totals (With Links To All Past Polls).
After 108 polls: The fact that 7,376 votes have been cast by 306 different board members for 2,724 different songs still amazes me. Once again, thanks to everyone. I think the 6@6 is a pretty good resource for people who may wish to check out an artist they don’t know much about & get a basic idea which tracks are most preferred by the Doper community. Because of the dynamic nature of the music industry & the date the poll was run, tracks on some newer releases from artists that still recording are not included. As has always been our custom, if there’s a band you’d like to see a 6@6 poll for; request it – we’ll try & get it into the upcoming schedule. The majority of bands we’ve run polls on (and in the upcoming schedule) have been requested by other Café Society denizens.

Lastly: 6@6 Posting Guidelines
1st: Have a knowledge & appreciation for the artist(s) in the poll title. 2nd: Post your 6 favorite tracks from them. Cover versions & offshoots are acceptable. Segue tracks (written to be adjoined to a song from the same album) count as one song (i.e. The Abbey Road Medley & many Zappa tracks). Try to be as accurate as possible when naming your favorite tracks. Most importantly: Due to the fact the 6@6 is confined to one weekly thread, If you’re going to vote for more than one artist please make a separate post for each artist.

Without further ado…Folk Week:

Bob Dylan

Wouldn’t it be more fun to identify the Dylan songs PERFORMED BY ANYONE ELSE that set the standard. Let’s face it, old Bob was an excellent writer, but kinda sucks as a performer.

bagkitty, I thoroughly disagree with you about Dylan’s merits as a performer–I’ve posted my standard “nobody sings Dylan like Dylan” rant more than once on the SDMB, so I won’t repeat it here–but you get points in my book for actually knowing some Donovan songs besides the hits!

Bob Dylan:

Forever Young
Tangled Up in Blue
Knocking on Heaven’s Door
I Shall be Released
Positively 4th Street
It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue

That no one else sounds like that is a particularly good thing.

Frankly, I have always considered Baez to be *the * intepreter of Dylan, that her versions set the standard. But I may be a little biased - I think I had 14 of her albums at one point…

Bob Dylan:

  1. Most of the Time
  2. Stuck inside Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again
  3. Shelter from the Storm
  4. If You See Her, Say Hello
  5. Like a Rolling Stone
  6. Tangled Up in Blue
