Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 97/500! Wider Grooves, Superior Sound: Mobile Fidelity’s 45RPM Edition The Last Word in Analog Fidelity!
Dylan's 1963 sophomore effort marked by ambitious poetry, melodies, and moral convictions transforming songwriting, folk, and pop music
Includes "Masters of War," "Blowin' in the Wind," and "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall"
It's the album the ignited sea changes in pop culture, music, songwriting, poetry, and the social consciousness. It's the creation of a 22-year-old visionary still years away from casting a jaundiced eye to the media. It's the sound of change, the feeling of ground shifting beneath one's feet, and the entrance of an entirely new way of thinking. It's the effective beginning of what's arguably the boldest career in music history, the yawning vortex into the complex mind, supernatural wordplay, and folk techniques of a vocalist/guitarist whose name is forever associated with transformation. It's The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan.
This is the very finest, most transparent stereo edition of The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan ever produced. Never before has the resonance of his nylon guitar strings, fingerpicked notes, shivering harmonica fills, or plainspoken timbre possessed such clarity, openness, body, or realism. With the advantage of wider and deeper grooves, the 45 RPM pressing affords the opportunity to detect more information and lavish in extra richness.
Exponentially surpassing the potential he demonstrated on his debut, Dylan became a mirror of the concerns, issues, and feelings confronting the nation. Writing and singing with penetrating honesty, observational wit, moral conviction, and scathing emotion, he digs into the madness of war ("Masters of War," "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall"), hypocrisy of segregation ("Oxford Town"), urgency of civil rights and freedom ("Blowin' in the Wind"), and multiple angles of unrequited love ("Girl From the North Country," "Don't Think Twice It's All Right") with a literate astuteness and depth that, nearly 50 years later, still leave audiences slack-jawed.
