Utterly fantastic album. Highly undervalued.

Description: John Wesley Harding is the eighth studio album by American singer-songwriter Bob Dylan, released on December 27, 1967, by Columbia Records. Produced by Bob Johnston, the album marked Dylan's return to semi-acoustic instrumentation and folk-influenced songwriting after three albums of lyrically abstract, blues-indebted rock music.

But that calm was a perfect contrast to the sermonizing fire be unleashed in "All Along the Watchtower" and the crossroads parable "The Ballad of Frankie Lee and Judas Priest."

500 CDs You Must Own Before You Die! (500 music items)
