Paul Clayton, who came from the old whaling town,
New Bedford, Massachusetts, and who sang sea chanties
went around singing Dylan's praises to any who would listen.
"Bobby worshipped Pablo Clayton artistically," one of the
folksingers from those days [Dave Van Ronk] recalls.
"And Pablo became absolutely fixated on Bobby.
Bobby could talk about nothing else but Woody Guthrie,
and Pablo could talk about nothing else but Bobby Dylan."

Anthony Scaduto: Bob Dylan.- London 1972, p. 59

discography
This discography is a non-commercial labor-of-love and is in no way associated with any business firm.
All I know about the resp. artist's / label's musical output is shown on this page. To purchase out-of-print records I recommend an ebay, gemm or google search. And - sorry for that - I have not the time to answer any e-mails asking me about further information, let alone duplicating out-of-print recordings I happen to own.
