This document of a performance at The Gaslight Cafe, NYC, on September 6, 1961, is historic in many ways; it is one of the first known live recordings of the great Robert Zimmerman and, more importantly, the first known live recording to feature original songs („Man On the Street,“ „Talkin‘ Bear Mountain Picnic Massacre Blues,“ and „Song to Woody“). Known among collectors as the First Gaslight Tape, the sound quality on these recordings is fantastic, and the set holds up as one of the best early Dylan live recordings in both sound quality and performance. Essential! Limited to 500 copies.
