The neuroscience of Bob Dylan's genius

It's May 1965 and he's slumped in an armchair at the Savoy hotel in London. The camera filming the documentary Don't Look Back, about Dylan's tour, turns away – Dylan's weariness feels like an accusation – and starts to pan around the room, capturing the ragged entourage of folkies and groupies following the singer on the final week of his European tour. For the previous four months, Dylan had been struggling to maintain a gruelling performance schedule. He'd been paraded in front of the press and asked an endless series of inane questions. At times, Dylan lost his temper and became obstinate with reporters. Although Dylan's creativity remained a constant – he wrote because he didn't know what else to do – there were increasing signs that he was losing interest in creating music.

You know the experience - a tune intrudes on your thoughts and plays, and replays, in a never-ending loop. It happened recently to me. So, as a science reporter, I thought I'd try to find out why. Several weeks ago, I was at home on a Sunday morning when, for no apparent reason, three words popped into my head - "Funky Cold Medina". That's the name of a song performed by rapper Tone Loc. I kept hearing the lyrics - "Cold coolin' at a bar, and I'm looking for some action. When the song reappeared in my head, I could hear my friend singing it again and again... and again. I was stuck with it for nearly a day and a half, before it finally went away. But it left behind a nagging question. "I personally couldn't believe how little there was in terms of research on this phenomenon," says Dr Vicky Williamson, a music psychologist who started studying it a few years ago.

Another Bloody Beatles Post! (The Rest Of Their Story!)

Why yes it is! And here’s some more stuff that you might’ve missed at some point over the last twenty years. We were absolutely thrilled with the ’09 releases in,,,well,,,’09! Beautiful sound and MUCH better packaging compared with the ’87 issues! Abbey Road was the first one I bought and I was blown away! Then I got the “White Album”. I’m not terribly sure of the details, but there’s the ‘master reel‘ that was mastered and eq’d for vinyl and in 1987, they just used that master for the CD.

So with the advance of technology quality these days, a very good quality digital CD can be created! Back to the White Album. John’s guitar intro to Dear Prudence is so clear and pure, it sounds like he could be standing right next to you playing it! And the Result was -The Beatles Recording Sessions – The Official Abbey Road Studio Session Notes, 1962-1970 If you think you know all about the Beatles, you don’t know nuthin’ Mister!
