Produced by Columbia's legendary talent scout John H. Hammondwho signed Dylan to the label, the album features folk standards, plus two original compositions, " Talkin' New York " and " Song to Woody ". Hester had invited Dylan to the session as a harmonica player, and Hammond approved him as a session player after hearing him rehearse, with recommendations from his son, musician John P. Hammondand from Liam Clancy. Hammond later told Robert Shelton that he decided to sign Dylan "on the spot", and invited him to the Columbia offices for a more formal audition recording.
Producer Fred Caterothen a recording engineer for Columbia Records, claims to have the master of that session. It is not the original demo for Columbia, but a session from December 6,recorded by John Hammond, Sr. On September 29, an exceptionally favorable review of Dylan's performance appeared in the New York Times. Ballad In Plain D - Bob Dylan - The Bob Dylan 60s Collection same day, Dylan played harmonica at Hester's recording session at Columbia's Take A Chance On Me - A*Teens - The ABBA Generation studios.
After the session, Hammond brought Dylan to his offices and presented him with Columbia's standard five-year contract for previously unrecorded artists, and Dylan signed immediately. That night at Gerdes, Dylan told Shelton about Hammond's offer, but asked him to "keep it quiet" until the contract's final approval had worked its way through the Columbia hierarchy.
The label's official approvals came Kenny Burrell - Midnight Blue. Studio time was scheduled for late November, and during the weeks leading up to those sessions, Dylan began searching for new material even though he was already familiar with a number of songs. According to Dylan's friend Carla Rotolo sister of his girlfriend Suze Rotolo"He spent most of his time listening to my records, days and nights.
LloydRabbit Brown 's guitar, Guthrieof course, and blues … his record was in the planning stages. We were all concerned about what songs Dylan was going to do. I remember clearly talking about it. The album was ultimately recorded in three short afternoon sessions on November 20 and Despite the low cost and short amount of time, Dylan was still difficult to record, according to Hammond.
It occurred to me at the time that I'd never worked with anyone so undisciplined before. The album's four outtakes were also cut in single takes. During the sessions, Dylan refused requests to do second takes. Frightened - The Fall - Live At The Witch Trials can't see myself singing the same song twice in a row.
That's terrible. The album cover features a reversed photo of Dylan holding his acoustic guitar. This was done to prevent the neck of the guitar from obscuring Columbia's logo. By the time sessions were held for his debut album, Dylan was absorbing an enormous amount of folk material from sitting and listening to contemporaries performing in New York's clubs and coffeehouses.
Many of these individuals were also close friends who performed with Dylan, often inviting him to their Bláu Augun Þín - Þuríður Sigurðardóttir, Pálmi Gunnarsson - Þuríður Og Pálmi Syngja Lög Eftir Gunnar where they would introduce him to more folk songs.
At the same time, Dylan was borrowing and listening to a large number of folk, blues, and country records, many of which were hard to find at the time. Dylan claimed in the documentary No Direction Home that he needed to hear a song only once or twice to learn it. The final album sequence of Bob Dylan features only two original compositions; the other eleven tracks are folk standards and traditional Connie Francis - Wishing It Was You / Youre Mine. Only two of the covers and both originals were in his club set in September Dylan stated Joe Albany - Plays George Gershwin & Burton Lane a interview that he was hesitant to reveal too much of himself at first.
Of the two original songs, "Song to Woody" is the best known. Guthrie was Dylan's main musical influence at the time of Bob Dylan' s release, and indeed on several of the songs, Dylan is apparently imitating Guthrie's vocal mannerisms. Dylan takes an arranger's credit on many of the traditional songs, but a number of them can be traced to his contemporaries. For example, the arrangement of " House of the Rising Sun " was developed by Dave Van Ronkwho was a close friend at the time. Van Ronk had intended to record this arrangement himself and was upset that Dylan had recorded it.
Von Schmidt introduced the arrangement to Ballad In Plain D - Bob Dylan - The Bob Dylan 60s Collection as well as an arrangement for " He Was a Friend of Mine ", which was also recorded for but omitted from Dylan's first album.
Dylan would leave most of these songs behind when he moved to the concert stage inbut he performed "Man Ballad In Plain D - Bob Dylan - The Bob Dylan 60s Collection Constant Sorrow" during his first national Ballad In Plain D - Bob Dylan - The Bob Dylan 60s Collection appearance in mid a performance included on the retrospective No Direction Home. AfterDylan performed only five songs from his debut album in concert, and only "Song to Woody" and "Pretty Peggy-O" would be heard with any frequency.
A fourth outtake, "Ramblin' Blues" written by Woody Guthrieremains unreleased. Of these four, the most celebrated is perhaps "House Carpenter", a new rendition of the 16th-century Scottish ballad "The Daemon Lover" and the final song recorded for Bob Dylan. Biographer Clinton Heylin described the song as "the most extraordinary performance of the sessions, as demonically driven as anything Robert Johnson put out in his name".
Though it was a favorite at the time in folk circles, Dylan apparently never played "House Carpenter" in any documented performance. Bob Dylan did not receive acclaim until years later. And as with the Presley Sun sessions, the voice that leaps from Dylan's first album is its most striking feature, a determined, iconoclastic baying that chews up influences, and spits out the odd mixed signal without half trying.
At the time of its release, however, Bob Dylan received little notice, and both Hammond and Dylan were soon dismissive of the first album's results. In the April 14, issue of Billboard magazine it was highlighted as a Ballad In Plain D - Bob Dylan - The Bob Dylan 60s Collection merit' release, saying; " Dylan is one of the most interesting, and most disciplined youngster to appear Славный Карлик - Александр Розенбаум - Возвращение На Арго the pop-folk scene in a long time" and "moving originals such as "Song to Woody" and "Talkin' New York".
Dylan when he finds his own style, could win a big following. Bob Dylan remains Dylan's only release not to chart whatsoever in the U. On December 22,a month to the day after Bob Dylan' s final session, Dylan was in MinneapolisMinnesotawhere he and his friend Tony Glover paid a visit to their friend Bonnie Beecher. Dylan held an informal session at her apartment, performing 26 songs which were recorded by Glover on a reel-to-reel tape recorder.
Often known by a misnomer, the Minneapolis Hotel Tape soon entered private circulation, providing a thorough look at Dylan's musical potential only a month after recording his debut album. A larger and far more diverse selection of songs, it was all recorded the night of the 22nd in roughly two and a half hours. Though only a few selections from the Minneapolis hotel tape were ever officially released, all twenty-six songs have been heavily bootlegged and celebrated by Greil Marcusa music critic who wrote about the recordings in Rolling Stone magazine.
As Heylin writes, some of these songs gave Dylan "an all-important clue as to how he might mold traditional melodies and sensibility to his own worldview". From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
