John Wesley Harding" is a song by Bob Dylan that appears on his 1967 album of the same name. Dylan told Jann Wenner in a 1969 Rolling Stone interview that the song "started out to be a long ballad like maybe one of those old cowboy. you know, a real long ballad. But in the middle of the second verse, I got tired. I had a tune, and I didn't want to waste the tune; it was a nice little melody, so I just wrote a quick third verse, and I recorded that.
This 1967 album transcended easy categorisation 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
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
Gordon Mills's Most Recent Stories. A swaying harp picks out the title track, John Wesley Harding. A statement is made about the concept of everyday Good and Evil. Harding is Johnny Cash‘s outlaw figure, he was never known to hurt an honest man - folk-hero of a different kind, John Wesley Harding - a friend to the poor. With all the spiced crispness of the Elizabethan verse of some Samuel Daniel, Dylan expresses in this early morning incidente, As I Went Out One Morning, all the beauty of a different concept of Love: in his knowing, he can only refuse the hand of this fairest damsel, as he must. This Sad-eyed Lady, reaching out for another answer, finds only a rejection. In her asking she condemns herself: I will secretly accept you, and together we’ll fly South.
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.
Then try Village Green Preservation Society, their '68 classic. The Kinks were awesome but sadly their sixties output is really badly produced, compared to the Beatles.
