A clot of 1965 came up in my listening Thursday evening, but I was unaware that Fontella Bass had passed away just the day before. Among these songs I would point out the exquisite patterning with which the vocal parts share the vocal lines in People Get Ready; how petty and ill-tempered Dylan sounds in this company; the fiery rhythm section behind Fontella, Sam Cooke's message from the pulpit paired with The Guess Who's report from the floor; and moving from delight to delight to the Dells' deeply composed arrangement of the final repetitions of Stay . . . Stay . . . Stay.
