It was during my freshman year in college that Bob Dylan's Freewheelin' album came out, and I became an instant fan. I have been a fan ever since.

What I plan to do on this blog is, first of all, post 3 times a week, by randomly selecting one of Dylan's songs (except for today), and commenting on it.

Today's selection: Blowin’ in the Wind I chose this song as the premiere song, because it is the first track on Dylan’s breakout album. Freewheelin’ made Dylan a household name on campuses across the country, and repopularized guitar playing.

Album: The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan


Coolest things about the cover art:
Attempt to recreate a
photo of James Dean (sans chick)
Photo of Suze Rotolo (Dylan’s girlfriend at the time)

Release Date: May, 1963

Best Lyric: Yes, ‘n’ how many years can some people exist Before they're allowed to be free?

The ascension of an African-American to the presidency certainly shows we are close if not there yet.

like a complete unknown
