Editors’ Notes Bob Dylan took an artistic turn on this 1964 album (his fourth), balancing personal exploration and symbolist poetics while establishing a link between his folk and electric years. It captures Dylan taking himself less seriously while slowly evolving into a mainstream star. The album veers from surreal comedic turns (“Motorpsycho Nitemare”) to romantic revelations (“All I Really Want to Do”) and personal manifestos (“It Ain’t Me Babe”). “My Back Pages” is a declaration of independence from political beliefs, while the spare and melodic “Chimes of Freedom” tells of self-liberation.
