Makes sense following Llewyn Davis and Billy Bragg to have an early Dylan album – definitely one of my favorites and an iconic cover.

This is from the era where Dylan is making an unbelievable number of what come to be classic albums very quickly. “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right” is one I perpetually find myself returning to on guitar, and of course songs like Blowin’ in the Wind, Masters of War, Girl from the North Country, and I Shall Be Free are treasures in their own right.

Produced by John Hammond, liner notes by Nat Hentoff:

This album, in sum, is the protean Bob Dulan as of the time of the recording. By the next recording, there will be more new songs and insights and experience.

My copy is a later issue – probably late seventies based on the label – that I found at Listen Up Music in Natick, MA.
