Please let us Revisit Highway 61,
This review is from: Highway 61 Revisited (Audio CD)
This was the third album by Bob Dylan that I listened to and it has become one of my favourite albums ever. Thereis nothing better then putting this cd into your CD player and pressing the play button and listening to the wonderful drum that opens up Bob's amazing 'Like A Rolling Stone.'
'Like A Rolling Stone' remains one of my favourite Bob Dylan songs because its ability to leave the listener in wonder and wanting more. Well thanks to Bob, the listener gets a lot more: 'Tombstone Blues' is one of Dylan's most satisfying numbers and it really lives up to the previous track on the album.
The rest of the album is basically satifying. You have got the upbeat 'From A Buick 6'. If that is not enough for you, ' then Bob Dylan has thrown in major surprises: 'Ballad Of A Thin Man' talks about a man named Mr Jones that has you either in chuckles or wonderment at his brilliant use of lyrics and his own voice.
The title track, 'Highway 61 Revisited' is a brilliant short number (short for Dylan). You just want to repeat this song with its police sirens and amazing.
My favourite track and probably one of Dylan's most unusual is the last track, the eleven minute wonderment, 'Desolation Row'. I think this is the greatest thing that Dylan has ever done and I am so glad he managhed to put this on the end of a truly terrific album that you have got to have whether you are a Dylan fan or just a fan of music of any kind. A true music collector and poet cannot be without this album that has done wonderment for the society of the 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's. Enjoy!
