Bob Dylan – The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan
Well, it is the man’s birthday after all.
Having already recommended Mr. Dylan’s first album, I now move to his second.
If his debut yielded one arguably almost-great song—that being Song to Woody, of course—album number two offers, by my count, at least five indisputably great songs:
- Blowin’ in the Wind
- Masters of War
- Girl from the North Country
- A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fal
- Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right
Which is a pretty stunning leap forward, to say the least.
It’s not yet his greatest album, and it’s not quite my favorite, but it is an astonishing, incredible, towering, and moving achievement.
