Bootleg Bob

A portrait of the style icon as a young man.

Out today, Bob Dylan’s “Witmark Demos,” the 9th in his series of “Bootleg” releases, so-named for his sessions recording in the Witmark studios New York between 1962-64, gives us the sense of a great and developing artist as a young man. Word is he laid down these pieces as a safety cache of songs for others to record in case his own performing career didn’t hit—something about his voice being an issue. The release also provides a fine occasion to stop and appreciate a style icon in the making. For more in that department, check out the well-chosen collection of early Dylan pics over at
