It's entirely devoted to home tapes and live recordings fromwith the exception of three songs from Carnegie Hall on September 22,presumably included to fill out one of the discs to near-full capacity. Certainly there's a lot of unofficial early Bob Dylan here, each of the two discs offering just under 80 minutes of music. While much of disc one has somewhat subpar sound fidelity though it's quite listenableon the whole the material is essential to rounding out serious fans' full picture of Dylan 's repertoire as his career got off the ground.
Dylan The Story Of East Orange - Bob Dylan - Like Marlon Brando still singing few of his own songs at this point, and what few he had were pretty derivative. But he'd already reached excellence as a folk interpreter, both in terms of a uniquely powerful, earthy vocal style and the more overlooked aspects of his dexterous, expressive instrumental work on guitar and harmonica. Disc one is certainly the lesser of the pair, due both to the patchy sound and the cobbling together of performances from four different sources.
Even here, though, the renditions of "Gospel Plow" and "Fixin' to Die" from a November 4,Carnegie Hall are penetrating in their intensity. Disc Baby Blue Eyes - Aaron Roughton - What I Want, recorded in the apartment of friend Bonnie Beecher in Minneapolis on December 22,is justly the most famous of Dylan 's non-studio pre tapes. While he does a few songs he'd already recorded for his debut Bob Dylan album here, the performances are more intimate, and the 25 tracks allow him to include a number of worthy songs that didn't make that album.
He particularly excels on some of the bluesiest items, such as a scarifying "Wade in the Water" Old Folks - Charlie Parker - Jazz Perennial slicing slide guitar"It's Hard to Be Blind," another version of "Gospel Plow," and a thumping "Baby Please Don't Go," which has some of his most imaginative early guitar work. Some revisionists go as far to prefer this over Bob Dylan itself, though it's not flawless, particularly when he does his set of songs based around VD.
It does, however, emphasize that the Bob Dylan LP didn't capture everything there was to document about the earliest phase of his career, and the sound taped by noted fellow folkie Tony Glover is almost on the level of what you would have heard on The Story Of East Orange - Bob Dylan - Like Marlon Brando early-'60s official studio LP.
