Editors’ Notes Bob Dylan’s first album was mostly old folk and blues songs, but his second album, The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan, shows a nearly unbelievable transformation. Dylan’s songwriting talents came fast and furious. These earliest compositions include the landmark civil rights anthem “Blowin’ in the Wind”; the anti-war screeds “Masters of War,” “Talkin’ World War III Blues,” and “A Hard Rain’s a-Gonna Fall”; and the romantic turns of “Girl from the North Country” and “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right.” Modern singer-songwriting starts here.
