I have listened and loved Bob Dylan all my life and this still stands out as being one of his greater works. Obviously with ground breaking tracks such as Blowin' In The Wind and Don't Think Twice, Its Alright, this album will feature high on ANY Bob Dylan fan's list.
Wonderful...BUY IT!

Now that all of the reviews of the 2003 CD have been combined with my review of the 2012 MFSL CD, as of 18/09/12 my review is the only one which actually pertains to the MFSL CD. Well done, Amazon, really helpful to potential buyers of this product. It's NOT the same as the 2003 CD so don't combine the reviews.

Why MFSL opted for the stereo mix is a mystery. Great choice for those who want to listen to this LP with vocals in the center, the guitar way over in the right corner and the harmonica in the left. This isn't a remix either so there are still many instances of the voice whipping over from left to centre at the end of harmonica solos and vice versa. A quick comparison with the far cheaper Hybrid SACD released almost ten years ago shows that the MFSL disc has more compression applied - another example of the CD loudness war. The mono mix - now easily obtainable - is far superior and natural sounding and that was what Dylan and his engineers and producer had in mind when the LP was recorded, stereo mixes were a knocked-out loaded afterthought for 'hi-fi buffs' and would remain so for several more years. One listen to this and it's easy to hear why, best avoided.

Compelled to write a review about the brilliance of this record. I am relatively new to Dylan and enjoyed his first album 'Bob Dylan' but wanted to move on to some of his original work. 'Freewheelin' did not disappoint- its the voice of Dylan that makes these songs so great with stand out tracks 'A Hard Rains...' and the quite brilliant 'World War III Blues'. If you like the raw side of Bob Dylan and his distinctive blues sound then this is the record for you.

One of the single most important albums of the rock canon, THE FREEWHEELIN' BOB DYLAN, along PLEASE PLEASE ME, introduced the 1960s with a bang. Sure, the decade had been underway since 1960, but with this release we finally get the Dylan that will change the face of popular music. Although the album before this one can be entertaining in spots, no one could guess the genius of this sophomore effort by listening to the first Bob Dylan disc. And what genius it is.

Dylan, in the course of 13 songs, covers much of the human emotional genome, from joy to sadness to longing to righteous anger to broken hearts to comedy. The album is as accomplished and stunning as any of his later works, and stands as one of the best albums ever recorded. The sound is sparse, but very effective for the material covered. It also has a lesson producers nowadays could learn from: you don't need tons of instruments to produce effective music. This is just Dylan, a guitar, and a harmonica with the exception of "Corrina, Corrina," and he makes it work. Boy does he ever.

This album produced many of his most important compositions and signature songs, including the song that broke him into the mainstream, "Blowin' in the Wind". Compositions like the aforementioned song, "Don't Think Twice, It's Alright," "A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall," "Masters of War," and "Girl of the North Country," quickly established Dylan as the premier songwriter for the social conscious of the early 1960s, a role Dylan would quickly move away from (just listen to the mid 1960s trilogy of BRINGING IT ALL BACK HOME, HIGHWAY 61 REVISITED, and BLONDE ON BLONDE to see how far he left this stuff behind).

Very few songwriters have so many books written about them, but for me Dylan is about the performance and how he approached his songs at a moment time. It's magnificent how theDylan songs can project so many different feelings in a demo, studio or a live environment... this record has a collection of songs with pure guitar, harmonica and vocals... real raw folk and the one that made him famous.

These songs take you back to the 60's, but the lyrics as relevant as they could ever be... take a closer listen to the popular `Blowin in the wind' and the fabulous and melodic `Hard Rain's A-Gonna fall'.

Sit on that couch, get a coffee and prepare yourself for a great hour of music that REALLY changed the world...

You've thrown the worst fear
That can ever be hurled
Fear to bring children
Into the world
For threatening my baby
Unborn and unnamed
You ain't worth the blood
That runs in your veins

And I hope that you die
And your death'll come soon
I will follow your casket
In the pale afternoon
And I'll watch while you're lowered
Down to your deathbed
And I'll stand o'er your grave
Till I'm sure that you're dead

Just two of the eight angry verses of 'Masters of War', perhaps Dylan's most bitter attack on the American establishment and its culture of sending young men to die in a war that no man among them would fight. It is arguably the most incisive and eloquent anti-war song ever written, it is certainly the standard by which all others are compared. The year was 1963 and Bob was a fresh faced kid trying to make the scene; unprepared and patently incapable of any known form of compromise.

It may be argued that folk music gave Dylan licence to condemn political leaders so fervently. But folk music had not spared Pete Seeger from the Un-American Activities Committee [not to be confused with the McCarthy trials] a few years earlier and though America had moved on it remained obsessed with the threat of communism and was still deeply suspicious of any anti American retoric. In any event Bob did not save his denouncements for the words of his music and was quite happy to criticise the same order in interviews and press conferences whenever he felt so inclined. For his own amusement he once ridiculed the 'old bald guys' that ran the country.
