CBS is proud to introduce a major new figure in American folk music—Bob Dylan.
Excitement has been running high since the young man with a guitar ambled into a
recording studio for two sessions in November, 1961. For at only 20, Dylan is the most unusual

Yet what comes through from the album as a whole is a remarkable skill and more than a hint
of a highly distinctive vision.
