Bob Dylan is Dylan's astonishing debut album, recorded at Columbia Recording Studios in 1961. This is a 20-year-old Dylan, newly arrived in New York to be the next Woody Guthrie, singing traditional songs and original compositions with an aggressiveness and emotion that belie his young age. Guthrie's influence looms large over classic renditions of traditional songs, such as 'Man Of Constant Sorrow' and 'Pretty Peggy-O', as well as the poignant 'Song To Woody', one of two original compositions on the album. Even more powerful is the influence of Blind Willie Johnson, Blind Lemon Jefferson and the other great blues men, whose death-haunted emotions are carried through songs like 'See That My Grave Is Kept Clean', 'Fixin' To Die' and 'In My Time Of Dyin'. 'Talkin` New York', the second original composition, is a first glimpse of the savage wit that would come to mark his work. Columbia. 2005.
This album now seems as remarkable as his mid-'60s breakthoughs. Like Presley's Sun Sessions, it is both the remnant of a lost rural America and the seed of rock culture. The music is primarily Dylan, with acoustic guitar, barking traditional folk, and blues. He was 20, a Northern hick come to New York to be the next Woody Guthrie. It's amazing that at 20 he sings "In My Time of Dying" and "See That My Grave is Kept Clean," not as traditional songs, but making their doom and resignation sound personal. --Steve Tignor --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
