    Freewheelin' Bob Dylan

    I have always listened to Bob Dylan, since the mid to late sixties. This CD (album) was from before that time. I had never heard most of the songs on the CD. Many of the songs bring me back to a simpler time. Like most of his releases, the lyrics are always worth listening to for his unique insight into what is happening around him at the time. I find I listen to this over and over and it is definitely one of the Best of Dylan.

    A CLASSIC REBORN

    How wonderful to have a favorite "LP" from my college days remastered so beautifully! Dylan's music has the power and still relevant message that made it a classic in the 60's. Some things should last forever...this is one of them.

    The album that changed music forever

    Dylan absorbed everything that had created American music and changed everything that would come after him. Starting with Freewheelin, Dylan released album after album (up to the point of his recluse after a reported motorcycle accident) that became the greatest, most influential, most important pieces of music in American history. No "hits" collection can substitute for the power of this album and the several that would follow during this period of his career.

    Purely Dylan, Simply Beautiful

    Bob Dylan at his simplest and purest, possibly at his best. Even those who aren't fans of folk music can easily get behind this album because, like all great artists, Dylan transcends the artform. Though in the folk venacular, Freewheelin' doesn't hold true to the standard of folk music. It holds true to the standard of Bob Dylan. When he sings "I'll reflect from the mountain so all souls can see it," he leaves no doubt that he intents to stake his own claim with the greats. Dylan proves himself the master of the "protest song" moving from scathing (Masters of War) to philosophical (Blowin' in the Wind) to sad but bouncy (Oxford Town), but also shows his wicked sense of humor on songs like "Talkin' WWIII Blues" and "I Shall Be Free". He displays a maturity well beyond his years on the elusive "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right". And with "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall" he moves his music beyond any label. It's a song that can't be described and catergorized, only heard and felt. When Dylan declares, "I'll know my song well before I start singing," it's clear that he already knows that song inside and out.
