Bob Dylan: Live at The Gaslight (1962), Wikipedia writes “ is a live album including ten songs from early Bob Dylan performances on October 15th, 1962, at The Gaslight Cafe in New York City’s Greenwich Village.”
In an old building, dating from 1883, was a coffeehouse located at 116 MacDougal Street in Manhattan, The Gaslight Cafe [1958–1971]. It was home of the Beat poets and folk singers, who had something to say.
It was here that Dylan wrote and first performed “A Hard Rain’s a-Gonna Fall.” (This is the same song that Patti Smith sang on behalf of Dylan at the Nobel Prize Ceremony on December 10th, 2016; she did a masterful and beautiful interpretation.)
The 10 song-set that Dylan performed on the night of October 15th were finally released as an album on August 30, 2005. Nice to hear a young Dylan performing; he was already writing good poetry.
