Product Description

Product Description

Bob Dylan and his razor-sharp manger Albert Grossman knew a good angle when they came across one so were not slow to get the young Bob as much exposure as possible on America radio. First up was an appearance on Cynthia Goodings Folksingers Choice show, coming out of NYC in March 1962, a performance which informed the greater NY community what those in the East Village had been witnessing for a year already. A year hence in April 1963, at the conclusion of the recording sessions for Dylans sophomore record Freewheelin, Bob and Albert ventured 700 miles west to appear and perform on the infamous Studs Terkel radio show. A veteran of interview radio, Studs extracted from Bob quite probably the most interesting revelations during the early days. All complimented by Dylans acoustic ramblings the show catapulted the young minstrel into a new stratosphere of celebrity. In between these major broadcasts Dylan did appear on the radio and indeed the TV in a number of guises and circumstances, and these performances are collected on the third disc in this set. In 1961 a Folk Hootenanny took place at the Riverside Church in New York alongside Ramblin Jack Elliot, Danny Kalb and others. Also included on this compendium are performances on two separate shows with Oscar Brandt. His Folk Song Festival had run annually since 1945 and Dylan was invited to play this prestigious event in October 1961. Bob was also invited to play on Oscars radio show World Of Song in 1963, when he performed two songs live. In 1964 Bob Dylan made his TV debuts when he performed on the Steve Allen show in February 1964 and the Les Crane show in February of 1965, which rounds up nicely this three disc set of broadcasts from the time when Bob Dylan was finding his feet as a performer and a songwriter and which, by the end of this media apprenticeship, was among the most celebrated contemporary music artist in the world.

A Great selection . Fans of Dylan may already have these tracks as the three discs
that make up 'The Spirit of Radio' are
'Folksingers Choice', 'Life and life only' and 'Stud Terkel's Wax Museum' . So if you
do have these then 'The Spirit of Radio' would not be a good selection .
Recommended for all others , a good choice .

Good original Dylan. I was a little surprised that the three-CD package had two CDs that I had already bought separately (Folksinger's Choice, Stud's Terkel's Wax Museum). I should have checked more carefully! Not disappointed. The price was good for the package.

This is good, if you like old live Bob stuff. But, this in fact 3 albums in a cardboard box. Folksingers Choice March 11th 1962, Studs Turkel's Wax Museum April 26th 1963 and Life And Life Only Radio & TV 1961-1965. See individual reviews.
