Various – Bob Dylan's Greenwich Village Vol 1.
This product is currently sold out.
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 Huntingdon’s 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; ‘Greenwich 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 tunes’. This is volume 1 of a 2 part vinyl set that represents the scene he discovered, the sounds he found ‘Blowin’ In The Wind’ and the artists who were already playing the clubs and bars of the Village upon his arrival. Featuring tracks by artists such as Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, John lee Hooker plus many more! Limited to 1000 Copies on 140 Gram Vinyl.
