Bob Dylan is the debut studio album by American singer-songwriter Bob Dylan, released on March 19, 1962 by Columbia Records. Produced by Columbia's legendary talent scout John H. Hammond, who signed Dylan to the label, the album features folk standards, plus two original compositions, "Talkin' New York" and "Song to Woody".

Bob Dylan (born Robert Allen Zimmerman; May 24, 1941) is an American singer-songwriter, author, and visual artist who has been a major figure in popular culture for more than fifty years. Much of his most celebrated work dates from the 1960s, when songs such as "Blowin' in the Wind" (1963) and "The Times They Are a-Changin'" (1964) became anthems for the Civil Rights Movement and anti-war movement

Dylan’s journey to the first critical flop of his career started at Nashville’s Studio A in April 1969. Working with a band that included guitarist Charlie Daniels, bassist Charlie McCoy and drummer Kenny Buttrey, he cut standards like A Fool Such as I and I Forgot More Than You’ll Ever Know. That was it. You just added what you thought was best and what you thought Bob wanted. After cutting just 11 songs, Dylan suspended the sessions until the following March. When they resumed in New York, his band included Al Kooper on the organ and David Bromberg on guitar, Dobro and bass. After the first album, he really lost touch with that side of himself.

Bob Dylan released his confusing live album, 'Bob Dylan at Budokan,' on April 23, 1979. With Bob Dylan at Budokan, released in April 1979, the singer began willfully deconstructing the legend that had built up around his work. This radical re-imagining of his most familiar songs would become a hallmark of his concert approach from there on out, but at the time, some critics and fans were utterly dismayed  . Maybe, in the end, it was a little of both. What it's not, at least not anymore, is all that shocking. Bob Dylan Albums Ranked. Next: Top 10 Bob Dylan Songs.

For the first time in years, Dylan seemed to truly care about the quality of his work. The result was his strongest album in nearly a decade – though in a typical Dylan move, he jettisoned two of the best tracks ("Born in Time" and "Series of Dreams") to make work for a couple of clearly subpar songs. Regardless, Oh Mercy is a landmark album. He had reunited with the Band the previous year for an extremely lucrative reunion tour, but it was a decidedly nostalgic affair. Dylan had scored hits in the early 1970s with "Forever Young" and "Knockin' on Heaven's Door," but his albums were pretty half-assed affairs. While Dylan has made the wild claim that the songs were inspired by Chekhov short stories, Jakob Dylan knows the truth. The songs are my parents talking," he said in one interview.

His first album, Bob Dylan, was released in 1962, and he followed it up with a host of albums now regarded as masterpieces, including Blonde on Blonde in 1966, and Blood on the Tracks in 1975. He is regarded as one of the most influential figures in contemporary popular culture, though his music has always proved divisive. Speaking last year, Dylan said: Critics have been giving me a hard time since day one. His own response to receiving the prize is unknown. He rarely gives interviews, and has a troubled relationship with the fame attached to his decades of popularity.

The first of Dylan's songs in this set is "Blowin' in the Wind. In 1962, Dylan said of the song's background: "I still say that some of the biggest criminals are those that turn their heads away when they see wrong and they know it's wrong. You people over 21 should know better. But lots of people have to first find the wind.

Bob Dylan: Bob Dylan, American folksinger who moved from folk to rock music in the 1960s, infusing the lyrics of rock and roll with the intellectualism of classic literature and poetry. Dylan wrote more than 500 songs recorded by more than 2,000 artists. Learn more about his life, his artistry, and his accolades. It was a sound that took some getting used to. By comparison, Dylan’s second album, The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan (released in May 1963), sounded a clarion call. Young ears everywhere quickly assimilated his quirky voice, which divided parents and children and established him as part of the burgeoning counterculture, a rebel with a cause. In April 1963 Dylan played his first major New York City concert, at Town Hall. In May, when he was forbidden to perform Talkin’ John Birch Paranoid Blues on Ed Sullivan’s popular television program, he literally walked out on a golden opportunity.
