Whereas his self-titled debut album Bob Dylan had contained only two original songs, Freewheelin ' represented the beginning of Dylan's writing contemporary words to traditional melodies.
Eleven of the thirteen songs on the album are Dylan's original compositions. Dylan's lyrics embraced news stories drawn from headlines about the Civil Rights Movement and he articulated anxieties about the fear of nuclear warfare.
Balancing this political material were love songs, sometimes bitter and accusatory, and material that features surreal humor. Freewheelin ' showcased Dylan's songwriting talent for the first time, propelling him to national and international fame. The success of the album and Dylan's subsequent recognition led to his being named as "Spokesman of a Generation", a label Dylan repudiated. Inthe album was ranked number 97 on Rolling Stone Magazine's list of the greatest albums of all time.
InFreewheelin' was one of the first 50 recordings chosen by the Library of Congress to be added to the National Recording Registry. Neither critics nor Blowin In The Wind - Bob Dylan - Newport 2002 public took much notice of Dylan's self-titled debut album, Bob Dylanwhich sold only 5, copies in its first year, just enough to break even.
In a pointed rebuke to John Hammondwho had signed Dylan to Columbia Recordssome within the company referred to the singer as "Hammond's Folly"  and suggested dropping his contract. Hammond defended Dylan vigorously and was determined that Dylan's second album should be a success.
Many critics have noted the extraordinary development of Dylan's songwriting immediately after completing his first album. One of Dylan's biographers Clinton Heylin connects the sudden increase in lyrics written along topical and political lines to the fact that Dylan had moved into an apartment on West 4th Street with his girlfriend Suze Rotolo in January I checked out the songs Start Livin - Donavon Frankenreiter - Start Livin her.
Dylan's relationship with Rotolo also provided an important emotional dynamic in the composition of the Freewheelin ' album. After six months of living with Dylan, Rotolo agreed to her mother's proposal that she travel to Italy to study art. Critics have connected the intense love songs expressing longing and loss on Freewheelin' to Dylan's fraught relationship with Rotolo. The speed and facility with which Dylan wrote topical songs attracted the attention of other musicians in the New York folk scene.
In a radio interview on WBAI in JunePete Seeger described Dylan as "the most prolific songwriter on the scene" and then asked Dylan how many songs he had written recently. Dylan replied, "I might go for two weeks without writing these songs. I write a lot of stuff. In fact, I wrote five songs last night but I gave all the papers away in some place called the Bitter Picture On The Wall - Prince Heron - African Chant. In an interview with Sing Out!
They exist all by themselves just waiting for someone to write them down. I just put them down on paper. If I didn't do it, somebody else would. The album was provisionally entitled Bob Dylan's Bluesand as late as Julythis would remain the working title. At this point, music manager Albert Grossman began to take an interest in Dylan's business affairs.
Grossman persuaded Dylan to transfer the publishing rights of his songs from Duchess Music, whom he had signed a contract with in Januaryto Witmark Music, a division of Warner's music publishing operation. Dylan signed a contract with Witmark on Blowin In The Wind - Bob Dylan - Newport 2002 13, This gave Grossman fifty percent of Witmark's share of the publishing income generated by any songwriter Grossman had brought to the company.
This "secret deal" resulted in a bitter legal battle between Dylan and Grossman in the s. Albert Grossman became Dylan's manager on August 20, Instead, Hammond responded by inviting Dylan to his office and persuading him to sign a "reaffirment"—agreeing to abide by the original contract. This effectively neutralized Grossman's strategy, and led to some animosity between Grossman and Hammond. On September 22, Dylan appeared for the first time at Carnegie Hallpart of an all-star hootenanny.
On this occasion, he premiered his new composition " A Hard Rain's a-Gonna Fall ",  a complex and powerful song Blowin In The Wind - Bob Dylan - Newport 2002 upon the question and answer refrain pattern of the traditional British ballad " Lord Randall ". In the sleeve notes on the Freewheelin' album, Nat Hentoff quotes Dylan as saying that he wrote "Hard Rain" in response to the Cuban Missile Crisis: "Every line in 12.
Jauchzet Dem Herren Alle Welt (SWV 493) - Heinrich Schütz, The Tapiola Chamber Choir*, Paul Hill is actually the start of a whole new song. But when I wrote it, I thought I wouldn't have enough time alive to write all those songs so I put all I could into this one".
Dylan resumed work on Freewheelin' at Columbia's Born Late 58 - Mott The Hoople - Greatest Hits A on October 26, when a major innovation took place—Dylan made his first studio recordings with a backing band. An 'alternate take' of "Corrina, Corrina" from the same session would also be selected for the Plucky Ranks - Germaine of "Mixed Up Confusion", Dylan's first electric single issued later in the year.
At the next recording session on November 1, the band included Art Davis on bass, while jazz guitarist George Barnes replaced Howie Collins.
A take of the Mi Ga Spet Žingamo - Ansambel bratov Avsenik - Gremo Na Olimpiado song, "Rocks and Gravel", was selected for the album, but the track was subsequently dropped. On November 14, Dylan resumed work with his backup band, this time with Gene Ramey on bass, devoting most of the session to recording "Mixed-Up Confusion".
Although this track did not appear on Freewheelin'it was released as a single on December 14,and then swiftly withdrawn. Cameron Crowe described it as "a fascinating look at a folk artist with his mind wandering towards Elvis Presley and Tides Of The Mainland - Matt Newton - Push Records ". Also recorded on November 14 was the new composition " Don't Think Twice, It's All Right " Clinton Heylin writes that, although the sleeve notes of Freewheelin ' describe this song as being accompanied by a backing band, no band is audible on the released version.
Dylan held another session at Studio A on December 6. Dylan also made another attempt at "Whatcha Gonna Do" and recorded a new song, "Hero Blues", but both songs were ultimately rejected and left unreleased. Twelve days later, Dylan made his first trip abroad. Dylan arrived in London on December In the play, Dylan performed "Blowin' in the Wind" and two other songs.
Martin Carthy's incredible. I learned a lot of stuff from Martin. Carthy taught Dylan two English songs that would prove important for the Freewheelin ' album. Carthy's arrangement of " Scarborough Fair " would be used by Dylan as the basis of his own composition, " Girl from the North Country ". Both songs displayed Dylan's fast-growing ability to take traditional melodies and use them as a basis for highly personal songwriting.
Dylan worked Blowin In The Wind - Bob Dylan - Newport 2002 his new material, and when he returned to London, Martin Carthy received a surprise: "When he came back from Italy, he'd written 'Girl From the North Country'; he came down to the Troubadour and said, 'Hey, here's "Scarborough Fair"' and he started playing this Blowin In The Wind - Bob Dylan - Newport 2002 . Dylan flew back to New York on January 16, Dylan's keenness to record his new material for Freewheelin' paralleled a dramatic power struggle in the studio: Albert Grossman's determination to have John Hammond replaced as Dylan's producer at CBS.
According to Dylan biographer Howard Sounes"The two men could not have been more different. Grossman was a Jewish businessman with a shady past, hustling to become a millionaire. Wilson recalled: "I didn't even particularly like folk music.
I'd been recording Sun Ra and Coltrane I thought folk music was for the dumb guys. I was flabbergasted. Dylan had told Sullivan he would perform "Talkin' Rock And Roll Part 1 - Gary Glitter - Rock And Roll Part 1 & 2 Birch Paranoid Blues", but the "head of program practices" at CBS Undercover Love - Talk Of The Town - Talk Of The Town informed Dylan that this song was potentially libelous to the John Birch Societyand asked him to perform another number.
Rather than comply with TV censorship, Dylan refused to appear on the show. Anthony Scaduto writes that after The Ed Sullivan Show debacle, CBS lawyers were alarmed to discover that the controversial song was to be included on Dylan's new album, only a few weeks from its release date. Scaduto writes that Dylan felt "crushed" by being compelled to submit to censorship, but he was in no position to argue. Heylin suggests that CBS had probably forced Dylan to withdraw "John Birch" from the album some weeks earlier and that Dylan had responded by recording his new material on April A few copies of the original pressing of the LP with the four deleted tracks have Blowin In The Wind - Bob Dylan - Newport 2002 up over the years, despite Columbia's supposed destruction of all copies during the pre-release phase all copies found were in the standard album sleeve with the revised track selection.
Other permutations of the Freewheelin' album include versions with a different running order of the tracks on the album, and a Canadian version of the album that listed the tracks in the wrong order. According to Alan Lomax's The Folk Songs of North Americathe song originated in Canada and was sung by former slaves who fled there after Britain abolished slavery in InDylan acknowledged the source when he told journalist Marc Rowland: "'Blowin' in the Wind' has always been a spiritual.
I took it off a song called 'No More Auction Block'—that's a spiritual and 'Blowin' in the Wind' follows the same feeling. Critic Andy Gill wrote: " 'Blowin' in the Wind' marked a huge jump in Dylan's songwriting: for the first time, Dylan discovered the effectiveness of moving from the particular to the general. Whereas 'The Ballad of Donald White' would become completely redundant as soon as the eponymous criminal was executed, a song as vague as 'Blowin' in the Wind' could be applied to just about any freedom issue.
It remains the song with which Dylan's name is most inextricably linked, and safeguarded his reputation Blowin In The Wind - Bob Dylan - Newport 2002 a civil libertarian through any number of changes in style and attitude.
They and Dylan both shared the same manager: Albert Grossman. The single sold a phenomenal three hundred thousand copies in the Blowin In The Wind - Bob Dylan - Newport 2002 week of release. On July 13,it reached number two on the Billboard chart with sales exceeding one million copies. There has been much speculation in print about the identity of the girl in the song. Clinton Heylin states that the most frequently mooted candidates are Echo Helstrom, an early girlfriend of Dylan from his hometown of Hibbingand Suze Rotolofor whom Dylan was pining as he finished the song in Italy.
In the song, a supernatural character poses a series of questions to an innocent, requesting her to perform impossible tasks. Harvey points out that Dylan "retains the idea of the listener being sent upon a task, a northern place setting, and an antique lyric quality". A scathing song directed against the war industry, "Masters of War" is based on Jean Ritchie 's arrangement of " Nottamun Town ", an English riddle song.
It was written in late while Dylan was in London; eyewitnesses including Martin Carthy and Anthea Joseph recall Dylan performing the song in folk clubs at the time. Dylan composed this song in the form of a bar blues. In the sleeve notes of Freewheelin 'Dylan explained to Nat Hentoff : "What made the real blues singers so great is that they were able to state all the problems they had; but at the same time, they were standing outside of them and could look at them.
And in that way, they had them beat. Dylan begins this track with a spoken intro where he describes the origins of folk songs in a satirical vein: "most of the songs that are written uptown in Tin Pan Alleythat's where most of the folk songs come from nowadays". I start with an idea Blowin In The Wind - Bob Dylan - Newport 2002 then I feel what follows.
Best way I can describe this one is that it's sort of like walking by a side street. You gaze in and walk on. Dylan was only 21 years old when he wrote one of his most complex songs, "A Hard Rain's a-Gonna Fall", often referred to as "Hard Rain". Dylan is said to have premiered "Hard Rain" at the Gaslight Cafewhere Village performer Peter Blankfield recalled: "He put out these pieces of loose-leaf paper ripped out of a spiral notebook. And he starts singing ['Hard Rain'] He finished singing it, and no one could say anything.
