John Hammon at A&R stumbled upon a good assessment of Dylan’s coffee shop act in the New York Instances and signed him quickly following. Although his debut failed to generate any focus, his sophomore record spawned the iconic song “Blowin’ in the Wind” in 1963, and he quickly hit the road with protest singer (and romantic interest) Joan Baez.
