Bob Dylan's Changing Times

The Beatles are not the only ones making history 50 years ago this week. On this day, Feb 10, 1964  Bob Dylan released his classic   "The Times They Are a-Changin,"  on his 3rd album (Columbia Records). Perhaps he could be seen as the prophetic figure who presaged the era of upheaval the Beatles and so many others represented, most notably, Dylan himself. 


The line it is drawn 
The curse it is cast 
The slow one now 
Will later be fast 
As the present now 
Will later be past 
The order is 
Rapidly fadin' 
And the first one now 
Will later be last 
For the times they are a-changin'.

See John Lennon's Don't Let Me Down.
See George Harrison's Let It Roll
