The Minneapolis Party Tape (recorded in May 1961) is of great historical/archival interest. It's also a lot of fun. There are many obscure songs here that didn't make it to Dylan's albums. Some of these are Woody Guthrie numbers or old blues songs, played in a reverent style with a maturity and skill you might not expect from a very young Dylan. There are also some amusing novelty-type songs, such as 'Bonnie, Why d You Cut My Hair?' Meanwhile 'Talking Fish' is a humorous, deadpan tale that bears some relation to 'Talkin' Bear Mountain Picnic Massacre Blues'. 'Harmonica Solo' is exactly that, and shows how well Bob could already play this instrument.
Sound quality varies - in places pretty good; in other places quite patchy. But, the spirit and importance of the recording shines through.
