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.

Bob Dylan returned from exile with John Wesley Harding, a quiet, country-tinged album that split dramatically from his previous three. A calm, reflective album, John Wesley Harding strips away all of the wilder tendencies of Dylan's rock albums - even the then-unreleased Basement Tapes he made the previous year - but it isn't a return to his folk roots. If anything, the album is his first serious foray into country, but only a handful of songs, such as "I'll Be Your Baby Tonight," are straight country songs.

Bob Dylan's eighth album, John Wesley Harding, still comes as a bit of a surprise nearly 40 years after its release. Its oddity begins with its cover: a black and white photograph in which Bob barely stands out, placed on a beige background. If you look a little closer, you see that Dylan is actually smiling; shocking, as the last few Dylan albums had featured a prominent sneer. And then you listen to the music, and things become stranger still. After Blonde and Blonde, his most varied (some would say chaotic) album, comes this simple, subdued country-folk record

Bob Dylan The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan 1963 (Full Album). Bob Dylan World Gone Wrong.

John Wesley Harding Was a friend to the poor He traveled a'with a gun in ev'ry hand All along this countryside He opened a'many a door But he was never known To hurt an honest man. ’Twas down in Chaynee County A time they talk about With his lady by his side He took a stand And soon the situation there Was all but straightened out For he was always known To lend a helping hand. The first song, and title track, of Bob Dylan’s supposed comeback album after the famed motorcycle crash 18 months earlier. Gone is the thin, wild mercury music of 1965-1966, gone is the wild-haired, shade-wearing rock star, gone is any hint at being the voice of a generation, replaced by a soft-spoken, acoustic folk singer both far more traditional and far more mystical than his original protest singer version, eschewing touring to stay home with his family in upstate New. York.

  • It took me a while to really appreciate it as initially it seems such a departure from the previous trilogy, but this is a beautiful album with some brilliant song writing, most notably All Along the Watchtower. Plenty of food for thought.

  • An old Dylan album, for sure! That said, when I first heard John Wesley Harding when it was first released, I fell in love with the 180° (almost) that Dylan had taken for this album of early "country rock" or "rock" (or both) as some say. It was great for learning the lyrics and singing along with my guitar and two other friends (and their guitars) in a trio of "folk" singers, that reached back as far as Cab Calloway's classics, to the music of Dylan and other contemporaries of his. His earliest album was introduced to me by a next door neighbor, and I found it rather "odd", and my first reaction (which I kept to myself) was 'Who told this guy he could sing?' Then, before I could comment, my neighbor said to me, "Well, he may not be the best of singers [duh!] but it's the lyrics that are important." She was right.I listened more and more to Dylan's albums, more with the lyrics in mind, but not without noticing that his voice was improving ever-so-slightly. At least he was carrying a bit of a tune, and his tone was a little less (but just a little) angry. I thought that feature helped him get his "message(s)" across to his listeners, which were students in universities and colleges, as well as some high school students (like me) who sought out Dylan and his lyrics. Then, came along this album. He was actually singing "I'll Be Your Baby Tonight", or at least I thought so. In fact, all the songs were very "tame" for Dylan, and it seemed to be a harbinger of things to come. On the other hand, to his credit, Bob Dylan never, to this day, lost his EDGE! NEVER!I stand by my rating of this album as I recommend it to any Dylan fan who might've missed it in its original release, or never really gave it a listen. Try it. I think you'll find a certain "sweetness" in it; something one doesn't EVER expect from Bob Dylan. He's the "poet laureate" of a generation, and I'm sure he ain't done yet!

  • This 1967 album transcended easy categorization as Bob Dylan moved from the experimentation and rock of his few previous releases. Cut in Nashville with a loose-limbed backing trio, the songs are mostly country-folk parables that, even at their most jaunty, like the plainspoken title track, are filled with mystery and distrust—from the occasional violence (the lightning that destroys a courthouse in the roiling “Drifter’s Escape”) to the biblical (“Wicked Messenger”). There are heavily covered love songs too, such as the brilliantly restrained “I’ll Be Your Baby Tonight.”

  • No one except Bob Dylan himself can say with any honesty what happened between the time between Blonde On Blonde and John Wesley Harding. No matter what, the turn from the wild and unexplored territory of Highway 61 and Blonde On Blonde into the basic and simple sounds of John Wesley Harding were a bit of a shock. Released at the end of 1967, the music is haunting and beautiful and mysterious. Several songs leave you with a chill running down your spine. Deep and mysterious songwriting with a basic musical background, John Wesley Harding will change everything you thought you knew about Dylan. Key tracks are the title track, I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine, All Along The Watchtower, and I'll Be Your Baby Tonight.

  • This album stands out from Dylan's other albums, the songs appearing to be semi linked vignettes from a mythical-pastoral American folk history. The strong themes of moralism and religion are part and parcel of the narrative and are not preachy like on Slow Train Coming. A dreamscape of magical realism pervades the lyrics, with vivid wild west period imagery. The simple, stripped down backing amplifies the intensity of the strong driving melodies, with some great bass lines and drumming defining the arrangements. It is in my personal top five and I am amazed I remember all the lyrics, 40 years later. I try not to play it too often to preserve the the mysterious power contained within this masterpiece. I read on an online blog that the album is Dylan's answer to Sergeant Pepper. I have no idea if that is true but it's a kinda neat idea!

  • John Wesley Harding is yet another excellent Dylan album, proving that his masterful songwriting skills emerged unscathed and undiluted by his comatose sabbatical. Best of all, the album sounds unlike anything Dylan has done before or since, thus dispelling any risk of stagnation. While somewhat on the short side, the LP manages to cram in an amazing amount of content into such a brief time span, and the album certainly never feels rushed or lacking. Each song is fully developed, and each has something different and meaningful to offer. While not up to the level of albums like Blonde On Blonde, Highway 61 Revisited and Bringing It All Back Home, John Wesley Harding claims a special place in Dylan's discography, one that will never be usurped, supplanted or challenged.

  • John Wesley Harding would be considered my many as a coming-down from the craziness of the double-album Blonde on Blonde. It's dificultto follow up such an amazing record like Blonde on Blonde, that being said this album is not disappointing at all. It's remarkable how Dylan can pack so much into a song that only features him with only a couple nashville musicians. This album doesn't nearly get enough respect, most likely because it follows the holy trinity of Dylan records, howeevr some of the songwriting is just as good notably in tracks like "All Along The Watchtower" and "The Ballad Of Frankie Lee And Judas Priest". Songwriting though is not the flaw of this album, the one flaw would be the sometimes repetitive arrangement, every song has guitar, bass, drums, harmonica, the only different case is on "Dear Landlord" where there is some piano and the final two songs have some steel pedal, that the only real colour to this album, it can sometimes get repetitive and dare I say boring at times, and the recurring sound of a piercing harmonica can get on my nerves. That being said, It's a nice pastral, relaxing album and there some really great songs but it does have some notable flaws.

  • I always thought Dylan went Country in the late 60's so he wouldn't be blamed for the Hippies. Hendrix turned All Along the Watchtower into a Hippie anthem nevertheless.
