Thx. Good to hear:

SF movies, low budget indie: "Primer" and "Monsters" Start there for some real science fiction.

As much as Mitch Miller is infamous for his hatred of rock 'n' roll, which kept Columbia out of the rock biz until the mid-'60s, he was definitely ahead of his time as a producer. All of his productions feature interesting, innovative, attention-getting sonic frills that nobody else was doing at the time.

Glenn, Steppenwolf was only semi-Canadian. They formed in L.A. after the Sparrow broke up, and of the original members, only the three ex-Sparrow guys—John Kay, Jerry Edmonton and Goldy McJohn—were from Canada. And Kay's originally German, so...

"Mixed-Up Confusion"
1962 "Blowin' in the Wind"

Mixed-Up Confusion is a song written and recorded by Bob Dylan. It was recorded with an electric band on November 14, 1962 during the sessions for The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, but was not used on that album, which, aside from "Corrina, Corrina", was entirely acoustic. Instead the song, backed with "Corrina, Corrina" (a different take than the Freewheelin' one), a traditional blues song, appeared as Dylan's first single, released in the U.S. on 14 December 1962 as Columbia 4-42656.[1] According to legend, Dylan wrote the song in a cab on the way to the Columbia Studios for the recording session.[2] This version was released in the Biograph box set in 1985. A different, previously unreleased, take from the same session appeared on the compilation album Masterpieces in 1978.[1] Both sides of the single are now available, in mono, as bonus tracks on the 2-CD Jasmine release Carolyn Hester Introduces Bob Dylan.

Nice ! His 1st single!
- I may be conflating Carolyn Hester w/ Judy Henske a bit in fact...

Avatar 10:47am fred:

What pisses me off is all these people who want to dictate what artists should or shouldn't do. You can dislike it at first then like it (happens often to me), or dislike it for good. It didn't stop with folk vs. electric. I had this conversation with Taraka Larson last year
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:56am Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

- like - seeing a Beatles Tribute - & thinking: They certainly have better P.A. than the Beatles came close to! - been playing it a lot longer then they did too..

...Arlo Guthrie explained it as the Folkies didn't understand yet that Rock could be meaningful & valid that way. (The 'Authenticity' police.) Awfully strange to us now on the other side when so much is based on Bob's innovations.
- Bob says: Was Woody Guthrie having Chart Hits? Leadbelly? What do I care?!
...I think Dylan should get more cred as ProtoPunk for facing audiences he knew would boo him & directly challenging them! (He doesn't because being Wordy & Serious is considered specifically AntiPunk - another Genre Authenticity Police thing)...
