John Hammond of Columbia Records saw something in Dylan that nobody else in the company saw but when Dylan's first record was released the folks at Columbia were calling Dylan "Hammond's Folly". Hammond, of course, would be proven right about the brilliant poet/singer, the problem was Bob was nervous about doing his own songs on this first album so he reverted to the catalog of classics (with the exception of Dylan's great "Song to Woody" and "Talkin NY"). This is the one early Dylan album that is Not mandatory to have, but it has its own charm for those who are interested.
