About this album

The Times They Are a-Changin’ is singer-songwriter Bob Dylan’s third studio album, released in January 1964 by Columbia Records.

Produced by Tom Wilson, it is the singer-songwriter’s first collection to feature only original compositions. The album consists mostly of stark, sparsely-arranged story songs concerning issues such as racism, poverty, and social change. The title track is one of Dylan’s most famous; many felt that it captured the spirit of social and political upheaval that characterized the 1960s.

Some critics and fans were not quite as taken with the album as a whole, relative to his previous work, for its lack of humor or musical diversity. Still, The Times They Are a-Changin’ entered the United States chart at twenty, eventually going gold, and belatedly reaching four in the United Kingdom in 1965.

    lonesome death of hattie carroll is simply perfect. Not saying that it's the best song he his, but it couldn't be any better within itself.

    it's basically brilliant throughout. The Lonesome Death Of Hattie Carroll puts it over the top

    Dylan at his most pessimistic (besides Masters of War, that one takes the cake entirely). I think it is enjoyable but I find that Highway 61, Blood on the Tracks, Blonde on Blonde, etc. are better, personally.

    My favorite album of Dylan's. Every moment of it beginning to end is amazing. I remember my sophomore year of high school my favorite teacher had a poster of this album cover on his classroom wall. That's when I checked it out. So glad he hung that poster up =)
