1             INTRODUCTION

Joan Baez helps establish Bob Dylan as the leading folk song artist, he performs as guest or "surprise" artist at a number of her concerts. The second important album, The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan is at last completed and released. Dylan continues his almost frantic song writing, this year sees no less than 34 new songs and also a number of poems. The third album gets recorded rather quickly and is completed by the end of October. It is released in January 1964.
