Product Description

Product Description

U.S.- only vinyl LP pressing of this 1963 album on the Mobile Fidelity label.

Dylan's outstanding second album is a tremendous jump from its predecessor. Whereas the debut established him as a peerless interpreter of folk and country-blues classics, and a singer like none before, this followup features some of the most pungent original songs of the '60s. "Blowin' in the Wind," "Masters of War," "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall," "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right," "I Shall Be Free": if this sounds like the lineup for a greatest-hits collection, you've got the idea. Nat Hentoff's liner notes are charmingly dated, but Dylan's idiosyncratic singing, unexpected lyrics, and inimitable guitar and harmonica playing are as immediate and relevant as whatever you heard on the radio today. (As great as this is, there's much more: a handful of top-rank outtakes from Freewheelin' appear on the Bootleg Series box set.) --Jimmy Guterman --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

There's very little else to say about this Dylan album other that it's perfection. His insight, humour, ability to invoke introspection from the most common of man is all here. If you're a beginner Dylan fan, this is a great place to start as it has a few that you're sure to have heard a lot (and why you're looking for a full album), if you're more seasoned, this brings the collection together. You can't help but feel that you've been let into his world; and what a great world to be a part of.

I am not a Dylan fan. But I've got an SACD player, and whenever I notice a retailer selling off their SACD stock cheaply, I tend to hoover it up.
I've always felt a bit guilty about not liking Dylan, given that he has had millions of fans, and was, at least until his motorbike accident in 1966, as big as Elvis and the Beatles. I think the problem is that I was born a decade too late, and music has always been much more important to me than lyrics. It may be heretical to say this but, as a teenager in the 1970s, I found the music of bands like Steely Dan and the Doobie Brothers more catchy than Dylan (great though the 'Desire' LP was).
But Dylan doesn't go away, and he's now one of the few popular artists to have much of his output available on SACD. THE FREEWHEELIN' BOB DYLAN was one of the key visual references in the recent Cameron Crowe movie VANILLA SKY.
I think you have to have lived through the era to really appreciate the impact of what Dylan was doing. Coming late to the era, it matters little to a new fan that 'Highway 61 Revisited' was the first electric folk rock album. There are now hundreds, if not thousands, of electric folk rock albums to choose from, and if anything, the later ones are likely to smoothe off the rough edges of the first.
But now I have a wad of Dylan SACDs and the opportunity to wade through them in chronological sequence. And I keep coming back to THE FREEWHEELIN' BOB DYLAN because it possesses a great purity and enthusiasm. As other reviewers have said, it's just the man, his mouth organ and his guitar (apart from on 'Corrina, Corrina'). SACD captures the simplicity of his performance superbly. NB This is SACD Stereo -- not Surround Sound, nor Dolby 5.1.
The music is part folk, part blues.

Bob Dylan remains one of the best songwriters, poets and storytellers of this time in American music history. Even after listening to "Another Side of Bob Dylan", "Bringing it All Back Home", the ever-lasting "Highway 61 Revisited" and "Blonde on Blonde"... "The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan" happens to be my most personal favorite Bob Dylan project.
Bob Dylan once said that "Poets don't drive cars"... (notice on the song "Bob Dylan's Blues" he says "I don't have no sports car and I don't even care to have one. I can walk anytime around the block...)"
Right before the dissappointing "The Times Are A-Changin'", Bob Dylan was only about 21 when he had made this album and he had known and claimed to have witnessed a lot of wars and he spoke of the natural fact that older people should know better (but some still do not). Dylan recorded the masterpiece "Masters of War" that is required listening in honor of people who have died in wars and especially the recent 9/11 attacks and how our President George W. Bush is handling the situation. It was very strong to hear how Dylan wishes someone would die in this song (and even the pitiful "You ain't worth the blood that runs in your veins). Unfortunately, not every one could have made a song like this without souding self-absorbed and orthodoxed (11 years later, Stevie Wonder [who had done a remake of Dylan's "Blowing in the Wind" in his pre-teenage years] had made a song entitled "You Haven't Done Nothing", attacking President Nixon... although that was a great song, I do not believe it was as strong as "Masters of War").

The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan was Bob Dylan's second album--written when he was only twenty-two years old in 1963. Following his forgettable and truly freewheeling debut album, Bob Dylan, The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan is a haphazard collection of love songs ["Girl from North Country"], talking songs ["Bob Dylan's Blues"], political and social songs ["A Hard Rain's A'Gonna Fall" and "Oxford Town"], and all-around freewheelin' songs ["I Shall Be Free"]. Like the rest of his first four albums, musically it's bare, but hospitable, even still--just Bob's voice, guitar and harmonica. This album is also quite uncomplicated lyrically: "Honey, just allow me one more chance to get along with you." Politically, though, its sharp: "You masters of war, you who build the big guns...I just want you to know I can see through your masks." And what is Bob Dylan when he isn't funny and silly? There are a number of tracks on this album, as he has also on Another Side of Bob Dylan, where he is funny and unserious: "Ask me why I'm drunk all the time, it clears my head and eases my mind. I just walk along, cry and sing, see better days and do better things. Catch dinosaurs, make love to Elizabeth Taylor, catch hell from Richard Burton." Got to love him. Anyhow, if you are looking for a politically-annotative Dylan album, you should look into his next album, The Times They Are A'Changin.' If you want something like this but a little more evolved and grown-up, look into Another Side of Bob Dylan. And, if you are looking for something totally different from this, check out Highway 61 Revisited and Blonde on Blonde, released six months apart from one another--the pinnacle of his career.
