This Day in History:
Bob Dylan Records
'Blowin’ in the Wind' July 9, 1962 Wildly considered
the most famous
protest song of the 1960s, Dylan's recording would
be released a year later on
The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan. The song would become a
hit in the meantime due to a
cover version recorded by
folk trio, Peter, Paul and Mary. While Dylan himself would quip
that, "I don't write no protest songs,"
"Blowin' in the Wind" would become
an anthem of the era. It would also propel
Dylan to a more personal
approach to his work. That approach would influence
countless other musicians,
notably The Beatles.
