EDITORS’ NOTES

When baby-faced Bob Dylan entered the studio in late 1961 to record his debut, no one expected such greatness. The album is packed with spirited, well-executed covers of old blues and folk tunes—including many eyebrow-raisers such as Bukka White’s “Fixin’ to Die”—which proved Dylan’s immense talent for song interpretation. The two originals here signaled an emerging, Woody Guthrie-inspired genius: “Song to Woody” beautifully blends poignancy and innocence while “Talkin’ New York” is rich with wit and insight, and both are uncanny accomplishments considering Dylan was only 20 years old.

Dylan is also a musician's musician

Not only is Bob the lyrical prophet of the 60's, the renegade / recluse of the 70's,
and the contiued mystical genius of the folk rock genre, but as demonstrated
by this record, he is ONE HELL of a musician! His guitar playing, espcially his
finger picking is machine like, his harmonica playing lyrical and dynamic,
and his vocals are spot on - timing, pitch and delivery.

His is a true master on every level and anything he delivers to the public is purely
because that is the statement he WANTS to deliver.

Long live the king!
