Bob Dylan is the debut studio album by American singer-songwriter Bob Dylan, released on March 19, 1962 by Columbia Records. Produced by Columbia's legendary talent scout John H. Hammond, who signed Dylan to the label, the album features folk standards, plus two original compositions, "Talkin' New York" and "Song to Woody".
Difficulty: intermediate. He fills his glasses up to the brim And he'll pace the cards around And the only pleasure he gets out of life Is ramblin' from town to town. Oh tell my baby sister Not to do as I have done But to shun that house in New Orleans They call the Risin' Sun. Well, it's one foot on the platform And the other foot on the train I'm goin' back to New Orleans To wear that ball and chain.
Because Bob Dylan is so hugely and quixotically himself, he is able to fill all the space the talking blues affords with unmistakable originality. In this piece, for example, he has singularly distilled the way we all wish away our end, thermonuclear or "natural. This album, in sum, is the protean Bob Dylan as of the time of the recording. By the next recording, there will be more new songs and insights and experiences.
Bob Dylan's first new album in five years, the highly-anticipated Modern Times includes 10 new songs recorded this past winter, and features Dylan on the keyboard, guitar, harmonica and vocals, and accompanied by his touring band. Modern Times is seen as the third release in an outstanding triology along with Time Out Of Mind and Love and Theft and is set to be another groundbreaking record for the music icon. Bob Dylan has recorded another classic album in Modern Times. I have found this album to have more staying power than other highly praised works of recent times including "Time out of Mind" and "Love and Theft".
