On a small stage in Greenwich Village in April 1962, Bob Dylan performed "Blowin' in the Wind" for the first time. The song was recorded in 1962 for the 1963 album The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, and the rest is history — an era-defining song that brought American folk music to the fore, changed the dynamic of a generation, and made Bob Dylan a certified star. In 2021, Bob Dylan re-recorded "Blowin' in the Wind" for his friend Joseph Henry 'T Bone' Burnett III for the first time since '62. Only one copy of the recording was made in the Iconic Original format. The Iconic Original process takes a traditional vinyl acetate and coats in a sapphire and quartz compound, preventing damage to the underlying acetate and producing superb sound. The only copy was auctioned off by Christie's, set in a custom white oak cabinet, with a hammer price of $1.78 million.
