46 Years Ago: Bob Dylan’s ‘John Wesley Harding’ Album Released

In mid-1966, following a whirlwind couple of years in which he became a legend and a reluctant star, Bob Dylan withdrew from the public eye.

On Dec. 17, 1963, the U.S. still had no idea what was in store. The Beatles had yet to appear on the Ed Sullivan Show where they seemingly overnight changed the landscape of pop music forever. That wouldn't occur until February 1964. However on a mid-December day in 1963, Carroll James of WWDC in Washington, DC played a Beatles record. He wasn't the first to do so in America, but it was the first time things really caught fire.

The man and his songs stand above the fray in the overall scheme of things, but the Billboard singles charts, with a couple exceptions, was never his home away from home. After releasing his debut album in the spring of 1962, Dylan headed back into Columbia Studios to record material for his second album, 'The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan.' Recording began in October 1962 with what was Dylan's first foray into rock and roll territory.
