“debut, and singing protest folks”

Starting today, I will post each period on my Timerime every week. So today, I will introduce a first period “debut, and singing protest folks” on my TimeRime.
※※※※

Bob Dylan was debuted in 1962 with his first album “Bob Dylan”. Until then, Bob performed at coffee house and club in New York. This album was selling 5,000 copies in the first year, but this wasn’t sold well for his record company, Columbia Records.


However, his second album “The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan” was getting big hit. Because America in those days was during the height of the civil rights movement. So Bob Dylan’s songs were featured as the protest songs with people. Especially, a song of this album, “Blowin’ in the Wind” was getting hit with covered version by Peter, Paul and Mary, and became one of the most popular song in the world. From this point, Bob became a star as the spokesman in young people.

In JAN. 1964, Bob was released his third album The Times They Are a-Changin’. This also got hit in the world, and Bob was released fourth album Another Side of Bob Dylan in the summer of that year. At that day, Bob got tired for expectancy as protest folk singer. So his music style was changing from protest folk style.

Between the 1962 and 1965, Bob was released 4 albums and he got 2 gold discs (The Times They Are a-Changin’ and Another Side of Bob Dylan) and 1 platinum (“The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan” ). So I think this age is a one of the his golden ages in his musical career.
