Many of these individuals were also close friends who performed with Dylan, often inviting him to their apartments where they would introduce him to more folk songs. At the same time, Dylan was borrowing and listening to a large number of folk, blues, and country records, many of which were hard to find at the time.
Dylan claimed in the documentary No Direction Home that he needed to hear a song only once or twice to learn it. The final album sequence of Bob Dylan features only two original compositions; the other eleven tracks are folk standards and traditional songs. Only two of the covers and both originals were in his club set in September Dylan stated in a interview that he was hesitant to reveal too much of himself at first.
Of the two original songs, "Song to Woody" is the best known. Guthrie was Dylan's main musical influence at the time of Bob Dylan' s release, and indeed on several of the songs, Dylan is apparently imitating Guthrie's vocal mannerisms.
Dylan takes an arranger's credit on many of the traditional songs, but a number of them can be traced to his contemporaries. For example, the arrangement of " House of the Rising Sun " was developed by Dave Van Ronkwho was a close friend at the time. Van Album) had intended to record this arrangement himself and was upset that Dylan had recorded it. Von Schmidt introduced the arrangement to Dylan as well as an arrangement for " He Was a Friend of Mine ", which was also recorded for but omitted from Dylan's first album.
Dylan would leave most of these songs behind when he moved to the concert stage inbut he performed "Man of Constant Sorrow" during his first national television appearance in mid a performance included on the retrospective No Direction Home. AfterDylan performed only five songs from his debut album in concert, and only "Song to Woody" and "Pretty Peggy-O" would be heard with any frequency. A fourth outtake, "Ramblin' Blues" written by Woody Guthrieremains unreleased. Of these four, the most celebrated is perhaps "House Carpenter", a new rendition of the 16th-century Scottish ballad "The Daemon Lover" and the final song recorded for Bob Dylan.
Biographer Clinton Heylin described the song as "the most extraordinary performance of the sessions, as demonically driven as anything Robert Johnson put out in his name". Though it was a favorite at the time in folk circles, Dylan apparently never played "House Carpenter" in any documented performance. Bob Dylan did not receive acclaim until years later. And as with the The Blind Man - Mono - Formica Blues (CD Sun sessions, the voice that leaps from Dylan's first album is its most striking feature, a determined, iconoclastic baying that chews up influences, and spits out the odd mixed signal without half trying.
At the time of its release, however, Bob Dylan received little notice, and both Hammond and Dylan were soon dismissive of the first album's results. In the April 14, issue of Billboard magazine it was highlighted as a 'special merit' release, saying; " Dylan is one of the most interesting, and most disciplined youngster to appear on the pop-folk scene in a long time" and "moving originals such as "Song to Woody" and "Talkin' New York". Dylan when he finds his own style, could win a big following.
Bob Dylan remains Dylan's only release not to chart whatsoever in the U. On December 22,a month to the day after Bob Dylan' s final session, Dylan was in MinneapolisMinnesotawhere he and his friend Tony Glover paid a visit to their friend Bonnie Beecher. Dylan held an informal session at her apartment, performing 26 songs which were recorded by The Blind Man - Mono - Formica Blues (CD on a reel-to-reel tape recorder.
Often known by a misnomer, the Minneapolis Hotel Tape soon entered private circulation, providing a thorough look at Dylan's musical potential only a month after recording his debut album. A larger and far more diverse selection of songs, it was all recorded the night of the 22nd in roughly two and a half hours.
Though only a few selections from the Minneapolis hotel tape were ever officially released, all twenty-six songs have been heavily bootlegged and celebrated by Greil Marcusa music critic who wrote about the recordings in Rolling Stone magazine. As Heylin writes, some of these songs gave Dylan "an all-important clue as to how he might mold traditional melodies and sensibility to his own worldview".
