Though he's mostly known as a songwriter, and especially as a wordsmith, Bob Dylan's debut album features only two original compositions. And yet every track here is unmistakeably Dylan. Even more remarkably, although the entire album is simply Bob Dylan accompanying himself on guitar (and harmonica), such is the versatility and strength of his playing that there is never a point where extra musicians could have added anything. Dylan's guitar playing at this early stage of his career was truly awesome, and it's almost a shame that he later felt the need to go electric. Almost.
