Description by

Dylan's first album comprised entirely of original compositions, The Times They Are A-Changin' is a solemn, often dark album depicting the unrest and discomfiting nature of the times.

In many ways it is the quintessential early Dylan - with traditional protest songs, such as the trademark title track, following on from Freewheelin's "Blowin' In The Wind," alongside other powerful and cutting songs of social injustice ("Only A Pawn In Their Game," "The Lonesome Death Of Hattie Carroll" and ""With God On Our Side.") Among the topical grimness, however, are some beautiful songs, including "Boots Of Spanish Leather" and "One Too Many Mornings." It is an album reflecting uncertain times, and it is a turning point in his career; his Another Side follow-up a year later would see a much lighter and more humorous Dylan. With some of the most important Dylan songs ever recorded, this is an essential part of any music fan's collection.

Product Description:

Solo performer: Bob Dylan (vocals, acoustic guitar, harmonica).
Engineers include: Stan Tonkel, George Kneurr, Peter Dauria.
Recorded at Columbia Recording Studio, New York, New York in August -October 1963.
On his third album, Bob Dylan both redefined and expanded his musical palette. Feted as a protest singer, a definition he rejected, he brought new insight to the genre, particularly with "Only A Pawn In Their Game," in which he paints a wider canvas relating to the murder of civil rights leader Medgar Evers. Dylan's love songs herein are particularly poignant, their stark acoustic setting enhancing a graphic lyricism. The title song boasts a wonderful ambiguity, managing to be both political and personal, the latter aspect suggesting the changes Dylan would bring to his music. His last album as a folk artist per se, THE TIMES THEY ARE A-CHANGIN' is yet another essential Dylan collection.
