musicology #443


NewYork NewYork #2

(Bob Dylan – Talkin’ New York)

Highlighted from his first LP. Recorded in late 1961 but released in March 1962. One of only two songs written by him, (the rest being interpretations). This cut describes his feelings on his arrival and subsequent early days in the big apple. Produced by the legendary John Hammond only two months after their first meeting…Didn’t receive much attention in America but went down well over here in England.

  1. enjoyed this one from Bob; for me it has a nice simple & personal touch which he still had in some of the songs he did on his next couple albums and a slight comic touch (talking world war 3 blues). cheers…

    please clarify…. I’m confused. I’ve a book here as thick as a door-stop full of Dylan compositions
