ah, good old Bob. Who can say no to this song? such a great song writer, perhaps not such a great singer, but a great musician. He is so right about his message in this song. The lack of caring and compassion for others and the justice towards others hurts both us and them.
Listening to the album "The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan" released in May 1963 by Columbia, Dylan's second studio album. This album established Dylan as a true Folk songwriter. It also started a big fight over his management between John Hammond and Albert Grossman which Grossman won, and pushed Dylan to Mega-Stardome all the while robbing him of 50% of his earnings until Dylan dumped him in 1970.
Not much reverence for The Great Bob on this page, love Naftallina's wicked parody. But come on, this is probably the greatest protest song ever written if you haven't heard PF Sloan's Eve of Destruction, and it still sounds as fresh and timeless today.
