First Listen: Bob Dylan, 'The Witmark Demos 1962-1964.' Hear many of his early, unreleased demos

... Witmark had a small 6x8-foot studio, and it's there that these songs were recorded and then transcribed into sheet music. So what you get is a fairly relaxed and young Bob Dylan playing his newest songs at the time. You hear flubs, forgotten verses, inspired playing and brilliant songs. Many of these tunes you already know, even if you're just a casual Dylan fan. But you've probably never heard "Mr. Tambourine Man" on piano, or the roughly 15 songs never released in any official form....
