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.
