Bob Dylan began recording his second album, The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan, at Columbia Studio A in New York on April 24, 1962.
He spent an entire year, off an on, writing and recording, completing work on the album on April 24, 1963.
Quite a change from the time spent on his debut, Bob Dylan, which was recorded in two days.
There were eight sessions in all for The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan, and most of the songs that ended up on the album were written by Dylan, again a marked change from the first one, which was nearly all covers.
Here are some of the songs and versions that didn’t make the official album.
“Corrina Corrina,” alternate take:
“(I Heard That) Lonesome Whistle”:
“That’s Alright Mama”:
“Milkcow’s Calf Blues”:
“Baby I’m In The Mood For You”:
