Bob Dylan's Greenwich Village Vol. 1 (VINYL ALBUM)
Release Date: 04/16/16
In early 1961, a 19 year old Bob Dylan, having dropped out of college at the end of his freshman year, travelled to New York City, ostensibly to visit his idol Woody Guthrie, hospitalised with Huntingdonâs Disease. He headed straight for Greenwich Village, by then the epicentre of the folk music revival that Dylan was hoping to become a part of. In his recent autobiography Chronicles he writes; âGreenwich was full of full of folk clubs and bars and those of us who played them all played the old timey folk songs, rural blues and dance tunesâ. This is volume 1 of a 2 part vinyl set that represents the scene he discovered, the sounds he found âBlowinâ In The Windâ and the artists who were already playing the clubs and bars of the Village upon his arrival.
