The inclusion of this particular Dylan track is hard to understand, unless it's the only one the compilers were allowed to use, which may well have been the case, since a folk-rock number such as "Like a Rolling Stone" clearly would have fit the bill better. One can easily cite other obvious omissions. There's nothing by Simon & Garfunkel, whose "The Sounds of Silence" among other songs would have fit perfectly, nothing from Peter, Paul & Mary or Crosby, Stills & Nash. Though there are socially conscious songs like Janis Ian's "Society's Child (Baby I've Been Thinking)," the protest element of folk-rock is underrepresented.
