Background: Originally released in late 1967, John Wesley Harding was Bob Dylan’s eighth studio LP and offers a retreat from the rock sound of his previous three albums.  It’s best remembered today for the original version of “All Along the Watchtower,” a song later made famous by Jimi Hendrix.

The album sold well, reaching #2 on the U.S. charts and reaching #1 in the UK.

Allmusic.com gave John Wesley Harding a 5 star review:

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. … Although the lyrics are somewhat enigmatic, the music is simple, direct, and melodic, providing a touchstone for the country-rock revolution that swept through rock in the late ’60s.
