Why I chose this:
A wise man once told me to get into Dylan so here I am. I wanted to start with something from his early period so this album seems like a good choice. Nothing much to say until we've heard it, so.... off you go.

  1. I was pretty amazed with this album when I first heard it. Such raw song-writing. Like all great albums it also grows on you. Great choice!

  2. I first listened to this while doing gardening at a work for food/accomadation organic farm run by Hare Krishnas in the outskirts of Buenos Aires. The lyrics are piercing and the folk music is just something I know nothing about but it has some power in its simplicity.

    Talkin World War III Blues is amazing
