    Description

    Handbill for Bob Dylan's "First New York Concert." Bob Dylan quit college at the end of his freshman year at the University of Minnesota in 1960, but stayed in Minneapolis and worked the folk circuit there, occasionally making jaunts to Denver and Chicago. In January 1961, en route to Minneapolis from Chicago, he changed course and went to New York City to perform, as well as to visit his ailing musical idol, Woody Guthrie. Playing mostly in coffeehouses for little pay, he gained some public recognition after a review by New York Times music critic Robert Shelton; that, combined with word-of-mouth around Greenwich Village led to contract with Columbia Records in October 1961. This handbill was printed to promote what was then touted as Dylan's "First New York Concert" on November 4, 1961, at the Carnegie Chapter Hall. In Excellent condition, with very minor wear and faint tanning around the edges.
