Discovered:the long-lost songs of Bob Dylan that went blowin' in the wind

"Four songs recorded by the then-unknown folk singer for the BBC in 1962 were long thought to have been destroyed. But, reveals Anthony Barnes, the tracks - including a version of his most famous song - were taped by fans and have now, in a remarkable story of musical salvage, been restored and will be heard again.

He was a complete unknown. When a folk singer by the name of Bob Dylan wandered into the BBC studios and performed four songs in late 1962, nobody paid much heed and the tape was thrown away.

But now Bob Dylan's performance as a hobo guitarist in the BBC drama The Madhouse on Castle Street is causing a buzz among music fans with the news that the tracks are set to be broadcast again for the first time in more than 40 years."
