Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Songs of All Time - "Highway 61 Revisited" - Rated 373/500!
Featured in Michael Fremer's Heavy Rotation in the August 2001 Issue of Stereophile!
Highway 61 Revisited is a landmark - recorded in 1965, during the same tumultuous summer that had seen him plugging in his electric guitar at the Newport Folk Festival, Highway 61 Revisited is Bob Dylan diving head-first into the rock and roll maelstrom, backed by the studio prowess of Al Kooper, Michael Bloomfield and others on such devastating classics as the epochal "Like A Rolling Stone." This Sundazed edition is an exact reproduction of the rare original 1965 mono album, featuring the original sleeve-notes and photos, and all-analog mastering from the absolute original source tapes.
"Recorded in a mind-boggling six days and released in August 1965, Highway 61 Revisited — named after the road that runs from Dylan's home state of Minnesota down through the Mississippi Delta — is one of those albums that, quite simply, changed everything." - www.rollingstone.com
This is the second release in Sundazed’s ongoing campaign - in cooperation with Columbia Records and Bob Dylan’s organization - to restore and issue the Bob Dylan catalog on vinyl, in gorgeous, accurate analog sound.
"'Highway 61 begins about where I came from,' Dylan writes in Chronicles. 'Duluth, to be exact.' The road runs through the heart of America — and so does the song. It’s Dylan at his wildest, both musically and lyrically, topping the band's roadhouse stomp with his surreal cosmic jokes. The police-siren whistle was courtesy of session man Al Kooper." - Rolling Stone
