Bob Dylan released his debut album 50 years ago today. Dylan was just a 20-year-old from Minnesota who had arrived in Manhattan the previous year, aboard a freight train when he released the self-titled album.
There’s something suffocating about the reality that Bob Dylan released his first album half-a-century ago. Was there even the ability to record music in 1912, 50 years prior to Dylan releasing his first record? Anyway, his radio show performance of “Fixin’ To Die” just prior to the album’s release is after the jump.
