Have any of you ever wondered who this guy is (at least those of you who own
songbook)

Well, I am doing a speech, and part of my research was finding out about Bob
Dylan...anyway, I borrowed a bio from the library and lo and behold, Barry
Kornfeld is mentioned more than once. Back in 1964, Kornfeld was Paul Simon's
co-publisher. He was also good friend's with Dylan. That must've been
intersting.

This book also goes on to mention a time where Paul got angry at Dylan for
laughing during his set. Apparantly Dylan wasn't laughing at his set, he just
had the case of the giggles after drinking too much. Whatever.

Isn't there a line in Desultory P' about Barry Cornfeld's mother on the
phone?

Yes...sad to say but Jean Kornfeld was Barry Kornfeld's mother. She passed away in 2005.
At my house in Queens, Bary Kornfeld's mother was on the phone! She was a cousin of my mother.

At one time his parents gave me a copy of the Paul Simon songbook. Sorry I lost it.
