Bought original when I was 16 in 1900 and frozen to death! took to a party (as we used to do) sadly some bugger stole it. Was overjoyed to find it on line, the music is so beautiful (he is a poet not a singer) and the cover was in super condition too.

By For Tomorrow 24 TOP 500 REVIEWER on 30 Aug. 2015
Format: Audio CD
Bob Dylan's self-entitled debut studio album is quite often overlooked, and perhaps this is because the man himself didn't write most of the songs on it. However, I still regard this excellent early slice of Americana and folk music as an essential. I think it's virtually worth the price alone just to hear his emotional version of 'The House of the Rising Sun', a traditional folk song which is probably associated the most with The Animals', whose pop version topped the charts in 1964, three years after Dylan recorded his.

This album, released in 1962, is full of raw emotion and ferocious energy, the sound of a confident artist with matching talent, who was eager to make his stamp on the musical world. His excellent bluesy vocals are remarkably world-wary for a man so young (then only 20), and here you'll discover some of the finest guitar playing he has ever put to record. The opening track 'You're No Good' is outstanding, and I guess you could say that the legend starts here.

There were only two original songs on the LP which Dylan did write himself, and the fact that this couple are among the other highlights, is a testament to what a strong songwriter he was from the start. The tracks are 'Song to Woody', a tribute to the folk singer Woody Guthrie, and the autobiographical 'Talkin' New York', which describes Dylan arriving in New York, and his life up until he got himself a record deal, which was very difficult because of his unique, un-contemporary sound. Thankfully, although it didn't make much of a commercial impact elsewhere in the world, the UK loved it enough to make it peak at no.13, and for a first album, it was very much acclaimed. This was a taster of a good things to come.
