Dylan's lyrics have incorporated a variety of political, social, philosophical, and literary influences. They defied existing pop music conventions and appealed hugely to the then burgeoning counterculture. Initially inspired by the performance style of Little Richard, and the songwriting of Woody Guthrie, Robert Johnson, and Hank Williams, Dylan has both amplified and personalized musical genres. His recording career, spanning fifty years, has explored many of the traditions in American song—from folk, blues, and country to gospel, rock and roll, and rockabilly to English, Scottish, and Irish folk music, embracing even jazz and swing. Dylan performs with guitar, keyboards, and harmonica. Backed by a changing line-up of musicians, he has toured steadily since the late 1980s on what has been dubbed the Never Ending Tour. His accomplishments as a recording artist and performer have been central to his career, but his greatest contribution is generally considered his songwriting.

Unlike his debut - which took only two days in the studio to record - The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan finally emerged in May 1963 after some 8 sessions at Columbia Records Studio A, over the course of nearly a year. The time and effort paid off in spades, as he emerged from the studio a fully-formed bona fide songwriter with a legitimate hit on his hands. Obviously, the final album left much material on the cutting room floor and Mr. Suit is pleased to bring some of that rarely heard material back to light. A mix of originals that never made it onto any LP, alternate takes, and cover songs, Freewheelin' Outtakes: The Columbia Sessions, NYC, 1962 captures America's most important living songwriter at a pivotal moment in his career when he emerged from the Greenwich Village folk scene to become the voice of his generation.
