An early Bob Dylan review

Apr. 13, 1963 – Bob Dylan, a folk musician, gave a well-received program of his own compositions at New York’s Town Hall last night. Mr. Dylan is 21 years old, hails from Hibbing, Minn., and looks like a cross between a beatnik and a choirboy. He plays excellent guitar and one of the more inventive harmonicas to be heard these days. His voice is small and rough but ready to serve the purpose of displaying his songs. His reading of a poem he wrote as an homage to Woody Guthrie won a standing ovation at the concert’s close. The hall was packed with young people hanging on each and every one of Mr. Dylan’s well-chosen words.
