"Unlike most Dylan shows, no one recorded it, so we don't know how much Zimmerman showed through on 'Hava Negeilah.'"

New York's Greatest Hits!
New York City's greatness is never more clearly reflected than in its breathtaking, star-making, thang-shaking musical diversity. In this issue, we take the measure of the musical metropolis. Mark Jacobson supplies an opinionated rendition of the city's baseline, from the sublime Duke Ellington to the sublimely ridiculous Ramones. Now taking the stage is an abundance of new talent, from R&B diva Alicia Keyes to the queen of bhangra, a fusion of Punjabi folk music and urban beats that could only have happened here.
