Audio: ‘The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan’ Released 51 Years Ago – May 27, 1963 – ‘Masters of War,’ ‘(I Heard That) Lonesome Whistle’ & More

Fifty-one years ago, on May 27, 1963, The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan, an album that Dylan had worked on, on and off, for over a year, was released.

The recording of the album began on April 24, 1962 and ended on April 24, 1963. There were sessions on eight different days at Columbia Studio A in New York. At least 36 songs were recorded.

Thirteen songs made it onto the album.
