Dylan is unquestionably one of the most influential figures in the history of folk and popular music. His 1997 album,”Time Out of Mind,”garnered him a Grammy for Album of the Year, and his recent single”Times Have Changed”won him both an Academy and a Golden Globe award.
His trademark voice is unmistakable. His first album, simply titled”Bob Dylan,”has been followed by four decades of hits. His well-known protest song,”Blowin’In The Wind,”released in 1963 and then re-recorded by Peter, Paul and Mary, brought him both national and international attention.
“Knockin’On Heaven’s Door”was released in 1973a decade laterand his latest album,”Love And Theft,”which Rolling Stone magazine describes as a return to”classic Dylan”was released this month.
