IN 1961, Bob Dy­lan played har­mon­ica on an al­bum by folksinger Carolyn Hester. The ses­sion was pro­duced by John Ham­mond of Columbia Records, who signed Dy­lan af­ter hear­ing him play. When Dy­lan’s de­but al­bum sold only 5,000 copies in its first year of re­lease, Dy­lan was re­ferred to by other Columbia ex­ec­u­tives as “Ham­mond’s Folly.”
