The Times They Are A-Changin’ is the third studio album by American singer songwriter Bob Dylan, originally released in January 1964 via Columbia Records.

If second album, The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan, hadn’t done enough to earn him the tag of the voice of his generation, the follow-up solidified it. The Times They Are A-Changin’ was the sound of the legendary singer-songwriter coming into his own.

Already the darling of the folk scene for Freewheelin’s protest songs, Dylan delivered a fresh new batch on his third album. Once again recording with just an acoustic guitar and harmonica, he upped the ante, especially on the title track, which remains a rallying cry for each new generation looking to define itself. Meanwhile, “With God On Our Side” questioned the moral justifications given for wars throughout the ages.

Dylan’s continuing commitment to the civil-rights movement was manifested in “The Lonesome Death of Hattie Carroll” and “Only A Pawn In Their Game”, but both took a new approach, focusing the outrage on the disease — the entrenchment of racism in society — rather than the symptoms. In the former, it wasn’t enough that a drunken rich white man killed a hardworking African-American woman for no reason; he was also given only a six-month jail sentence for his crime.

In the latter song, he dares to show empathy toward the killer of civil-rights activist Medgar Evers by acknowledging that his actions were the natural conclusion of a power structure designed to keep him down.

But it wasn’t all political material. “Boots Of Spanish Leather” and “One Too Many Mornings” are among Dylan’s most poignant and frequently covered ballads. When sung with the Band on his infamous 1966 tour, “Mornings” took on a new meaning. Rather than a regretful tune about the end of a relationship, Dylan appeared to be singing it to his audience, which couldn’t accept his decision to go electric.

If there’s anything The Times They Are A-Changin’ lacked from its predecessor, it was a lack of lightness. Still, it didn’t stop the album from reaching No. 20 on the chart, Dylan’s highest-charting record at the time.

This LP album is a 2016 reissue on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl in mono, pressed in Europe via Columbia Records.
