Product Description

Shortly after Bob Dylan arrived in New York in January 1961, he met Eve and Mac McKenzie at Gerdes Folk City, introduced to him by Woody Guthrie s wife, Marjorie. Folk enthusiasts, the McKenzie s had an apartment north of the Village where some of the young would-be folk musicians often met up. Dylan became a regular visitor and soon a houseguest too, sleeping on the couch in the family's living room. The middle-aged couple, generous down-to-earth folks, were among the first to adopt Dylan. Mac was a hard working, hard-drinking longshoreman, Eve, an ex-Martha Graham dancer, described Dylan as looking like a character out of Dickens, with long coat and cap. The original tape was most likely recorded over three sessions. The first was on November 23, 1961 after a Thanksgiving Day meal with the McKenzie's. The second was made about ten days later on or around December 4, 1961. Although other session may have been taped in the interim, the next known recording is believed to be from September 1962. This CD features the best of all three of these recordings all of which were made on a vintage reel-to-reel tape machine in the informal setting of the McKenzie apartment. The audio quality of these tapes is not in line with modern and consideration should be given to the circumstances in which these recordings were created.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Mr. N. Thompson the Mule on 4 Nov. 2013
Format: Audio CD
I almost hate to write this but this release is a real Turkey! We get about 20 snippets of songs in very poor audio quality and to my ears not only that but the tape seems to have become warped in parts (well it is over 50 years old incredibly). However I have given it 2 stars as some of the 1962 recordings which were done at Mac and Eve McKenzie's appartment are rather better quality. Best of this bad bunch are probably The Death of Emmett Till and Highway 51. Be warned though this sure isn't an easy or pleasant listening experience and one which I'm unlikely to repeat in the forseeable future! Neill Thompson aka the Mule 4/11/13.

The McKenzie Tapes have been with Dylan friends for a long time ... on tape. Now we have the tapes on cd and that makes it even easier in this day and age to enjoy them.

Fascinating fly-on-the-wall eavesdrop to Dylan running material by friends or acquaintances. Ambient noise only makes it more interesting. Worth listening to.

Oh boy,I have been looking forward to hearing this. But I have got through (very quickly) to track 9 and its poor to say the least so far. I am a huge Dylan fan and some of his early stuff is good but this is hard listening. OK it was done on a cheap tape recorder and is quite unique but the quality is very bad. I shall listen to the rest tomorrow hopefully it improves. This really is one for the collectors to have, some interesting bits. If you want early Dylan buy "Humdinger Folksinger" and just file this one away to say you have some stuff from when the great man started. Interesting!!
