Folk Talkin' Blues|
One of the first songs the masses heard from Bob Dylan was "Blowin' In The Wind." It's a simple
thoughtful song that became a big hit for Peter, Paul & Mary and was covered by several other artists.
Dylan released the song on his debut album The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan in 1963, prior to the JFK assassination
or the escalation of the Vietnam conflict. America was not yet very educated about the military
industrial complex, as President Eisenhower had called it a few years earlier. The anti-war
sentiment was still underneath the radar. Dylan songs such as "Masters Of War," turned out to
be slightly ahead of their time.
