Who would have believed that when he came on the scene singing "Blowing in the wind"?
Dylan was really a great lyricist and many of his songs are just as fresh as ever. He is indeed one of the greatest songwriters of the last 60 years.
Scott Johnson captured it this way:
"He somehow absorbed the folk, rock, country and blues traditions as a precocious young man growing up in Hibbing, Minnesota, and then recapitulated them in his own voice many times over while adding a twist of modernist poetry to the mix."I can't pick one Dylan song. However, there is no doubt that Joan Baez and Peter, Paul & Mary are the best at interpreting Dylan songs. The Byrds are good too!
"Song facts" quotes Dylan saying that this was one of his best songs. I agree for sure about this being one of Dylan's best songs.
