What's in a horse? Or should I say: What's on a horse? You may recall that some time back, in fact in September of last year, Chris Cooper had this Oracle idea about answering anyone's questions concerning the ins and outs of Lord Bob. This feature was published in Freewheelin' Quarterly Volume 21 and Chris decided that the people behind the Oracle should be none other than The Lone Ranger and Tonto. Consequently there was a very nice photo of The Masked One on his trusted steed Silver on page 33 of FQ21. Tonto was there too.

Fast forward to Dylan's European tour which commenced on the 5th April in Stockholm, Sweden. On the back cover of the European tour programme there is a rather nice silhouette of a man on a horse. And Lo and Behold it looks like our friend The Lone Ranger again, displaying his 'Hi Ho Silver' technique. If Dylan had worn a mask under his white stetson in Europe, well we would have given his game away. Dylan = The Lone Ranger.

I am afraid I just could not resist it. I had to have that silhouette on a Freewheelin' cover. To maintain the equine theme I have balanced The Lone Ranger against a bevy of race horses from a study by the Impressionist painter Edgar Degas (1834 -1917). In the foreground there is an interesting quartet. Gregory Peck and Jennifer Jones in a still from the movie 'Duel In The Sun' together with Dylan in Western attire and a mangy looking Rin-Tin-Tin. If you look closely Dylan is almost touching Peck's six shooter. Probably because Dylan's Mum had put his own guns in the ground. Nice to have a dog on the front cover again though.
