13Again, Dylan has been honest: he was never particularly political, and he became the Voice of a Generation purely by mistake. Hearing the preserved recording of a Bob Fass radio show from 1963, where Dylan stumbles into the studio in the middle of the night with the acetates of his new album, The Freewheelin’ and jokes liberally about the politically correct folk purists; it becomes very difficult to uphold the thesis that a radical change occured two-three years later which made him turn his back on ‘his’ movement: he was already thoroughly uninterested in that part of the folk movement by the time ‘Blowin’ ’ and ‘Hard Rain’ came out.
