Bob Dylan - Folksingers Choice - Cynthia Gooding Radio Show, February 1962

PhotobucketThis is a true not-to-be-missed gem. It belongs in every Bob Dylan fan's collection.

The recording was made in February 1962. The date of March 11, 1962 is listed on the cover, though this is most likely a re-broadcast date. The original radio show broadcast could have been as early as February.

History is a bit fuzzy here. This long lost radio show is in perfect quality. It is complete with wonderful live-on-the-spot renditions of the above traditional and Dylan songs, as well as fascinating conversation with a young, as yet undiscovered talent.

Bob relates, hilariously, the eponymous title of his soon to be released first LP, and so much more. There is conversation in-between each song that is priceless. All in all, one of the best boots ever to emerge.

Smokestack Lightning
Hard Travelin'
