'''''Bob Dylan''''' is the debut studio album by Music/BobDylan, released in 1962. It's almost entirely a CoverAlbum, save for two original compositions "Talkin' New York" and "Song To Woody". Produced and recorded at a very cheap budget it failed to make an impact at the time. Even when the singer broke to the mainstream with his SurprisinglyImprovedSequel ''Music/TheFreewheelinBobDylan'' the next year, ''Bob Dylan'' has never quite charted, sold or been acclaimed as high as his other albums. As a result Dylan pretty much [[CreatorBacklash dismissed]] his debut and [[CanonDiscontinuity wrote it out of canon]].

** "Song To Woody" is a homage to Dylan's big inspiration Music/WoodyGuthrie and based on the melody of his song "1913 Massacre". The line "that come with the dust and are gone with the wind" paraphrases a similar quote from Guthrie's "Pastures Of Plenty". On Music/DavidBowie's ''Music/HunkyDory (1971)'' Bowie would in turn record a track "Song To Bob Dylan", paying tribute to his own musical guru.
** "Song To Woody" also namedrops blues and folk singers such as Cisco Houston, Sonny Terry and Music/{{Leadbelly}}.

** "Song To Woody" also namedrops blues and folk singers such as Cisco Houston, Sonny Terry and Music/{{Leadbelly}}.
** "Talkin' New York" is closely based on Guthrie's song "Talking Dustbowl Blues" from ''Music/DustBowlBallads'' and also references "The Ballad Of Pretty Boy Floyd" from that same album:
--> ''Now a very great man once said: "That some people rob you with a fountain pen."''
* SomethingBlues: "Freight Train Blues".
* TrainSong: "Freight Train Blues"
--> ''Well, the only thing that makes me laugh again''
--> ''Is a southbound whistle on a southbound train''
* VocalEvolution: Dylan's voice sounds more like Music/WoodyGuthrie than the characteristic voice he would evolve into on his later albums.
