The Times They Are A-Changin' [Remaster]
Performer: Bob Dylan
Producer: Tom Wilson...
Distributor: Sony Music Distribution (
Notes: 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.
Mojo (Publisher) (p.122) - 5 stars out of 5 - "Dylan's reputation as a major cultural force was justifiably fixed forever in the public mind."
Bob Dylan began as a Woody Guthrie acolyte, imitating the dust-bowl balladeer as faithfully as a baby boomer from Hibbing, Minnesota, could. It wasn't long before he found his own voice, spearheading the early-1960s folk revival as well as the singer-songwriter movement, and introducing poetry into pop music. Through countless changes in sound, image, and even religion, he retained his unique artistic vision even when his popularity occasionally waned. By the 21st century, he was enjoying an upsurge of critical and popular interest based on a series of powerful late-career albums that crystallized his aesthetics and unique world view.
