Bob Dylan #2: The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan (1963)

After warming up with his debut album, Dylan truly arrived with The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan in 1963.  Featuring all original compositions (save one track), it contains some of Dylan’s most enduring songs, from “Blowin’ in the Wind,” which would become an anthem of the 60s in all its various protests, to the righteous fury of “Masters of War,” to the foreboding of “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall,” to the melancholy breakup song “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right,” his development as a songwriter is really stunning here.  475 more words
