Oh well, there's probably a few of you that are eat up Dylan stuff. He fills that spot. Some people live and die by every little burp and fart he ever recorded, have all of his original LPs, and anxiously await the next release in his official bootleg series. But there's probably a lot of you who went through that passing early-only Dylan phase where you sat on sidewalks writing in your journal about how nobody understands you. You smoked cigarettes and considered yourself a different breed,. You listened to smart music, burned candles and read Rimbaud and Blake. I knew you. I too wore raggedy ass clothes and mooched pocket change. Where was I? Oh yeah, I ran into this and thought that some of you might dig it. From a historical perspective, it's worth listening to. Dylan, after he was signed, but the first LP had yet to be finished. He was still playing small coffeehouse type venues, without a band, just him and his guitar. It's an excellent quality recording, and there's quite a bit of candid patter. Not all of the songs are from the same show, just the first seven. You can find the details about the recordings here. Gotta go now, Bluto calls.
