Editors’ Notes

Bob Dylan’s first album was mostly old folk and blues songs, but his second album, The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan, shows a nearly unbelievable transformation. Dylan’s songwriting talents came fast and furious. These earliest compositions include the landmark civil rights anthem “Blowin’ in the Wind”; the anti-war screeds “Masters of War”, “Talkin’ World War III Blues” and “A Hard Rain’s a-Gonna Fall”; and the romantic turns of “Girl from the North Country” and “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right.” Modern singer-songwriting starts here.

Customer Reviews


Dylan at his best. No other words can describe it.


I had this as a kid, loved it then, grown even more on me 30 years or so later.

The perfect blend of beautiful folk melodies and heartfelt yet thought-provoking lyrics...

Dylan really shines on this record. His folk and blues chord progressions are equally as creative as his expressive anti-war and heartfelt lyrical themes. Dylan has to be one of the most talented lyricists to ever have lived... his work is simply poetic. In terms, of the production, Bob's classic acoustic sound is very cleanly produced considering the era that the album was made. Overall, this record is a feat of beautiful music and songwriting. If you want some acoustic music to chill to
and appreciate, then this is your cup o' tea.

As a vocalist, he broke down the notion that a singer must have a conventionally good voice in order to perform, thereby redefining the vocalist's role in popular music. As a musician, he sparked several genres of pop music, including electrified folk-rock and country-rock....
