On this day in 1962….

….Bob Dylan recorded ‘Blowin’ In the Wind’ at Columbia Recording Studios in New York City during an afternoon session. Dylan originally wrote and performed a two-verse version of the song, as in its first public performance, at Gerde’s Folk City on April 16th, 1962. Shortly after this, he added the middle verse…..

……the song was based on a traditional melody dating back to the 1800s entitled ‘No More Auction Block’ (a song in Dylan’s repertoire in the early ’60s), you can hear the similarities with this wonderful version by Odetta….
