For those who love or have collected early Bob Dylan bootleg albums, this book is an archive of never before published photographs of the young Dylan when he first moved to New York City in the early 1960s. A freelance photographer on the lookout for good subjects, Ted Russell was intrigued by a rave review from The New York Times of the raw-voiced folk singer. The twenty-year-old Bob Dylan, a young folk singer whom nobody knew yet, became Russell’s subject. Bob Dylan: 1961-1964 is a window into the singer/songwriter who would go on to become one of America’s greatest musical treasures: the book contains photos of Dylan in his tiny Greenwich Village apartment, writing and practicing; snuggling with girlfriend Suze Rotolo; and performing at celebrated folk club Gerde’s Folk City. Bob Dylan: 1961-1964 is an important chronicle of the days just prior to Dylan’s celebrity and the perfect tribute both for Dylan and rock history fans.
