Our Review

Famed impresario John Hammond knew he was onto something when he invited a baby-faced, raw-voiced 20-year-old folk singer to the Columbia recording studios in November of 1961, yet he couldn’t have had any idea just how monumental his choice would be. Bob Dylan hadn’t even been in New York for a full year when he recorded this debut, but his distinctive style — forceful guitar picking, passionate, gruff singing, and mysterious pseudo-hobo persona — had already turned quite a few heads in the Greenwich Village folk scene. Dylan tackles 13 tracks here, 11 of which are urgent, well-executed covers of old blues and folk tunes. Energetic, powerful readings of tracks like Bukka White’s “Fixin’ to Die,” Blind Lemon Jefferson’s “See That My Grave Is Kept Clean,” and the New Orleans traditional “House of the Risin’ Sun” prove that Dylan had immense talent — even without putting pen to paper. However, the two original compositions signaled the arrival of an emerging songwriting genius, one clearly still under the sway of Woody Guthrie: “Talkin’ New York” is a Guthrie-style “talking blues” that displays Dylan’s knack for combining humor and insight, and the poignant, heartfelt “Song to Woody” has an innocence and wonder that would vanish before long.

To the guy the wrote "THIS IS TERRIBLE" (5 stars) some guy wrote that he hated the album. since i'm a big fan, i took it to heart and clicked the guys name. turns out his listens to Hannah Montana and Donny Osmand. Not a joke. Check for yourself. Also to the guy who wrote "THIS IS TERRIBLE" (5 stars) bud i suggest you go and buy No Direction Home and take 4 hours out of your pathetic life to brush up on the most influential folk singer ever. this man wrote the greatest music ever written. and its not about the singing maybe if some of you 13 year olds could listen to the music you hear ever day you would realize that there is no value what so ever in the songs. Bob Dylan WROTE music. Nowadays people just play it. guy who talked about teenagers (5 stars) im 14 and i love bob dylan. all i listen to is bob dylan, johnny cash, the band, and creedence clearwater revival

Biography

Born: May 24, 1941 in Duluth, MN Genre: Rock Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s Bob Dylan's influence on popular music is incalculable.

As a vocalist, he broke down the notion that a singer must have a conventionally good voice in order to perform, thereby redefining the vocalist's role in popular music. As a musician, he sparked several genres of pop music, including electrified folk-rock and country-rock....
