WIN 2 tickets to “Man in Black: Music of Johnny Cash” for Saturday night at the Rio Grande Theatre
The 101 number one song of the Day was recorded by a man tagged by the press as a Bob Dylan ripoff.
It’s easy to see why he was considered to be a copy because he wore a denim cap, played a harmonica attached to a neck harness and sang what sounded like folk songs. But when Dylan came to Britain and the two met face to face at a hotel, the two emerged as obvious friends, the media’s attitude shifted to a more favorable stance. Eventually his music evolved and as his image changed from wandering minstrel to flower child, the distinction between the two became much clearer. And on September 4, 1966, he owned the number one song in America – something that Dylan was never able to do…It’s Donovan with the 101 number one song of the day – Sunshine Superman
