Bob Dylan

Live at the Gaslight 1962


Forty-plus years into his never-ending career, Bob Dylan keeps throwing us curveballs. Live at the Gaslight 1962 consists of recordings taped in a famously tiny, noisy Greenwich Village club and is being sold only at Starbucks. But at 21, Dylan was remarkably intense, whether inhabiting folk-blues rambles like ”West Texas” and ”Rocks and Gravel” or writing ”A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall,” heard in one of its first performances. Although he was too young to pull off the burnout elegy ”Moonshiner,” Gaslight is a spellbinding reminder that Dylan was never a typical folkie (or typical anything, for that matter).
