Description
MacJams Woodstock

Bob Dylan and Joan Baez ( aka Roxylee and Feter) meet up backstage on the first day of the Woodstock ’69 Music Fest. Bob was planning on singing, but after this little conversation, he ran out and hid in the crowd until Joan gave up-this time. Special guest appearance by Arlo Guthrie.

Lyrics
Bobby, can I sing with you?
Bobby, like we used to do?
Before I made you famous
No one looked at you
C'mon Bobby, my Baby Blue

Joan, with you I've lost the thrill
I'm great now-you’re last on the bill
Where’s your old man David
that nerd who can’t kill?
Go out by yourself -sing "Joe Hill."

Chorus:
We were king and queen of folksong
Well, we knew it could not last
The world wants rock n roll
Forget about the past
The times are changing, babe
They’re changing fast

Bobby, let's have one duet
I know we can charm them yet
You go out first
I'll join you in the set
Our ballads will be so well met

Joan, will you get off my back?
You still wearing that gunny sack
You're stuck in the folk scene
And vision you lack
I'm layin down electric track

Chorus

My pleasure... :-)
When I heard you do your Dylan voice, I knew we had to do this song. I crack up every time I hear your remarks to Joanie, and I absolutely love your vocals on this! Thank you so much for your great collab work, humor, and affirmations all throughout the process. :-)

Blown away....
Just blown away.... this is dear... what a tribute!

Just blown away.

Our King and Queen of Woodstock MJ.

and Roxylee...
you pulled off a great one here... you really did. You captured the times, an early sixties moment when Dylan hit the scene with Joan by his side as his credential to the crowd, that was wondering... who is this kid? Thanks for the memory... and,

utterly blown away...

Roxylee said 3406 days ago (March 26th, 2008)
wow, Jack
I'm really happy that you liked this a lot. It was fun to make a parody of these tow beloved musicians for the MJ Woodstock Festival. After reading _Positively 4th Street,_, all this was in my head, and it was fun to be able to express the probable emotions that went on behind the scenes in their lives.

exquisite duo...
and awesome all around... super lyrics (definitely got that Roxylee smirky tone) and what a great Baez sounding song, so wonderfully sung by Roxylee... and Feter, boy are you are channeling the Dylan man... well done! I suddenly saw you standing there with big fuzzy hair.
Awesome work you two... love the whole concept and execution. Great work on the crowd sounds and ambience too!

Roxylee, good to hear your mic behaved for this, now to get your Saffire fixed and get you completely up and running again!
ttfn,
Drakonis

Gotta have the smirk factor..
Can't be too serious here at Woodstock, with all those Daisies in hippie garb. ;-) Thank you so much for all your mixing tips on my music- I've learned a lot. This was a riot- Feter's phrasing and annoyed tone were perfect. :- and it was fun to pretend to be Joanie. I admire her and I'm sure she wouldn't mind us gently teasing her here.

This is terrific
What a great pair of performances! Great lyrics, and beautifully performed. Wonderful stuff. Two great talents in musical conversation (Roxylee and Feter, that is...) Perfect. Peace.

Thank you, David
It's always gratifying to hear a skilled mixing artist thinks I mixed well, and that it sounded OK with the USB mic. Thank you for stopping by for our Jangling Conversation. :-)

WOweeeee Super Cool!!!

Guys you well rock on this one. Super cool thats for sure!!!
I am a huge Fan of Bob Dylan/ Joan Baez.
I have all or most of there songs on my Ipod too.

Feter you well sang like Bob.. Roxylee you too were well fantastic
are you two sure - Your not twins? You sing so well together.
I get a real buzz when I hear you two sing together. I really do.
' A Wonderful Collab '
I well smiled, listening to you two I felt all tingly all over
just like I felt when i created my last record or part of it at least lol
Cheers

I have all your records well, nearly all on my ipod -yours Feter and Roxylee
This one will take pride of place in my playlist for certain now too.
'Hey I do not jest I mean every word I have written here' I love you guys :-) Peace Dee xxxxxx


Roxylee said 3406 days ago (March 26th, 2008)
Wow, thank you, Dee
Your comments really make me smile. Just to imagine you having my songs on your iPod is a rush. Yeah, I think Feter and I are folkie twins who somehow got separated at birth-oh wait- we weren't born in the same decade... Oh, well, musical twins, then. I really enjoy singing and working with him, as he's so talented! Also encouraging and humorous, in spite of his living conditions. He is a real testimony of an overcomer. He did a sweet job of acting like Dylan and I crack up every time I hear it. Thank you for such a superlative comment- we both appreciate your coming over for a listen.:-)

Enjoy the personal
touch here. Plus the crowd scene is neat. Great pic too!

Nice fade out.

Roxy reminded me of Joan Baez!

Thanks for sharing and all the warmth you all have brought to MJ!

Priceless!

Ahhh.. thank you, Bill
I'm happy that I reminded you of Joan- I was trying to copy her voice and style.
By the end of winter, I need a parody. <G> Than you for your input; it is much appreciated.:-)

Oh this is outstanding you two
What else can I say. Feter this Woodstock-MJ has taken on a life if it's own now and it's amazing to watch it happen before my very eyes.

Thank you and all of the MacJamers that have made Woodstock-MJ the success it is becoming

Feter...
Since Roxy posted this I was pulling my hair out trying to figure out how she did the Dylan voice!

Then I figured out it was YOU!

This is really sweet! And Roxy... gawd... I thought I had found a lost Joan Baez album somewhere!

You are amazing... what a voice!

This is really really great!

Oh, I'm sorry I didn't make that clear enough! (I've added it into the description, thank you for letting me know it wasn't clear!) Yeh, that was Feter- I couldn'tt sing like Bobby to save my life. Thank you for the compliment, Mark; I guess all those years of copying Joan have finally paid off.. lol We are pleased that you like our contribution. :-)

Well, musicians often have big egos, and it's fun to poke fun at it sometimes. Too bad I missed going to the real Woodstock fest.. and it was less than a 2 hour's drive from where I lived at the time. Oh, well, we have MacJams Woodstock. Thank you, Feter! :-)

Yeh, I crack up every time I even think of Feter's annoyed Dylan voice in this. When I think of all the songs written for the Woodstock MJ, i am amazed at the creativity in this place. It was fun to write the words to this; parodies are such fun for me! I totally killed some Nanci Griffith songs, but that's another story. lol Thank you for listening and I'm glad it makes you crack up, too. :-)

I loved this. You guys should have been in that movie "A Mighty Wind", that movie parody: ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Mighty_Wind ).
Could have been nicely added.

A very nice tribute indeed.

I love parodies, changing words to well known songs, writing silly things sometimes. Life can't be all work and no making fun of folk singers, right?
Thanks for the movie tip- I just found it in Netflix and put it at the top of my queue. This might inspire me... bwaaahaahaaa...

This is great Mrs. Roxy. Such great 2 talents joined together acting 2 legends... Really fine.
Thanks a lot for sharing, you really worked hard on that festival... I was watching the whole process but never had the chance to leave comments on the songs included. This is one of my most favorites in that great fest.
KUDOS! Great vocals and fine guitar playing. Where did feter recorded the guitar? WONDERFUL!! I'm really happy to hear such a tune.

Take Care

Hi, Yeman!
Thank you so very much! I'm happy that this came out so pleasing to everyone who left a comment, and that is was one of your Woodstock faves. :-) Feter recorded his voice on the computer mic in the internet cafe, and I played the guitar. It's my 1968 Gibson Blue Ridge, and my only guitar. I'm glad you liked my playing. :-)
