Understated 1962 Debut Launched Immeasurably Influential Career: Inspired by Woody Guthrie and Blues Legends, Clearest Connection to Dylan’s Purist Folk Roots
Made when mono was still king, Bob Dylan’s self-titled 1962 debut is as understated of an entrance as any significant musician as ever made. Already well-versed in American roots music, Dylan simultaneously pays homage to tradition and extends it by putting his own stamp on classic material that metaphorically functions as the soil of our contemporary songs and styles. Free of ego, and performed with masterful conviction, Bob Dylan ranks with the debut efforts of similar artistic giants Elvis Presley and the Rolling Stones.
