    I re-read the posts & realized no one had yet mentioned Tom Waits.

    Elton John/Bernie Taupin have been mentioned a few times. They belong to that group of artists that I rather like a certain phase of their work, but others, say between 74 though 76, but not much else.

    When I think of great song writing, I think story-tellers & after Dylan and Springsteen, four immediately came to mind, (two of which I saw listed already)
    Robert Earl Keen
    Todd Snider
    Lyle Lovett
    and Captain Jimmy Buffett

    EDIT: add Fiona Apple to my list
    which spurred an observation- there is a distinct lack of female songwriters in our posts. I only spotted 11 including my one. Surely there are many many more that we have overlooked.
