Sealed - Brand new numbered 45rpm limited edition (3000) Mobile Fidelity half speed mastered 180 gram 2LP in gatefold cover. Made in the USA.
Produced by Tom Wilson, it is the singer-songwriter's first collection to feature only original compositions. The album consists mostly of stark, sparsely arranged ballads concerning issues such as racism, poverty, and social change. The title track is one of Dylan's most famous; many feel that it captures the spirit of social and political upheaval that characterized the 1960s.
Some critics and fans were not quite as taken with the album as a whole, relative to his previous work, for its lack of humor or musical diversity. Still, The Times They Are a-Changin' peaked at #20 on the US chart, eventually going gold, and belatedly reaching #4 in the UK in 1965.
