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.

Important, eternally relevant, perfect.
If I truly had to pick an essential Bob Dylan album, this would be it.
Fantastic.
Flawless.
Masters of War one of the greatest war protest songs of all time.
Life-changing.

You owe it to yourself to own this Dylan album...if no other.

One of the Greatest Albums...EVER

Okay, so this might not be his official debut album, but it is Bob Dylan's first album to show what a ground-breaking, breath-takingly wonderful songwriter he was (and remains today). This is a MUST HAVE...every single track is worth having!
