Program for Bob Dylan's historic "First New York Concert" at Carnegie Chapter Hall, Nov. 4, 1961.

NY: Izzy Young, 1961.

Item #SKB-2568

Single sheet folded to make four pages. The cover features a photo of a young Dylan wearing a corduroy cap and playing harmonica. Prints biographical info, including some "embellishments" supplied by Dylan such as how he started "playing Carnivals at the age of fourteen." Includes extensive quotes from him: "I dress the way I do because I want to dress this way and not because it is cheaper or easier...I don't want to make a lot of money, want to get along.....I want to reach more people and have the chance to sing the kind of music I sing." An important item from ground zero of Dylan's career. He first arrived in NYC in 1961 and began playing small clubs in Greenwich Village---this was Dylan's very first concert in a larger venue (concert promoter Izzy Young from the Folklore Center said he sold 53 tickets!) Slight touch of toning to bottom edge, else very near fine.

Price: $1,500.00
