"Highway 61 Revisited" should be on every "Top Ten non-classical recordings of the 20th century" lists, for many reasons: Its courage and innovation, and the influence it had on the music of its time, and for the impact it continues to have; the strength of its strange but potently poetic lyrics, and the quality of its musicianship; and most of all, because it is fabulous listening.
Dylan turned the musical world on its head when he went "electric", and the musicians he assembled to back him are legendary; Michael Bloomfield, guitar / Al Kooper, organ & piano / Paul Griffin, piano and organ / Bobby Gregg, drums / Harvey Goldstein, bass / Charley McCoy, guitar / Frank Owens, piano / Russ Savakus, bass. The music they make sounds as fresh today as when I first heard it four decades ago; everyone will have their favorites, mine are "Ballad of a Thin Man" and "Tombstone Blues", but all nine tracks are brilliant and powerful.
Fortunately CBS/Sony has released this CD in the same format as the original LP, with Dylan's incomprehensible but terrific liner notes ("On the slow train time does not interfere..."), and with no extra tracks to ruin the feel of the music. It is a recording that is like clear water when compared to the stagnant musical times we live in, and no CD collection is truly complete without it. The sound is excellent and total playing time is 51'37.

In 1965, Bob Dylan released HIGHWAY 61 REVISITED, arguably the single most important record in 1960s rock. A total break with anything occurring in popular music before (save Dylan's own albums), HIGHWAY 61 REVISITED merged biting, sharp lyricism and great garage-rock and blues. When most other bands were singing about boy-girl topics and writing insubstantial lyrics (in 1965 The Beatles were singing "You're gonna lose that girl"), Dylan combined edgy, hip lyrics with garage rock, blues, and epic folk. His voice, rough hewn and very off-kilter technically, rewrites the rules for rock vocals. As Mark Prindle says, Dylan's voice turned off a lot of people, but influenced a whole lot more.

"Like a Rolling Stone," Dylan's most famous song, kickstarts HIGHWAY 61 with a sledge hammer. Significant as the single that broke the three minute barrier Dylan berates a woman, very much trying to be with the `in' movement. Filled with images never before conceived with in pop music, this song sets the tone of the rest of the album, and indeed this period of Dylan's life. "Ballad of a Thin Man," however, proves itself to be the really brutal put-down to all those to unwilling to open their minds and see where the counter-culture was headed. "Mr Jones," the acrimonious protagonist, finds himself thrown into a world of freaks, and he simply doesn't know what is happening. He is wealthy, well-read, and in all likelihood corporate - the very materialism and hypocrisy the youth of the 1960s were so ardent to overthrow. (Many 1960s' youth turned into 1980s' yuppies; that is neither here nor there.)

The very confrontational break with the folk community informs this entire work. The folk community were still idolizing Dylan, and Dylan, being Dylan, abandoned the role, much to their anger.

You want an early Dylan album but you are not sure which one to buy. Buy this one. Listen carefully to it a few times. Let it get into you as only the best music can, it takes a while sometimes but the effort is worth it. This album can be like that. Most of the songs on here need listening to until something clicks then you are hooked for all time. Dylan will never leave you. After all 'when you ain't got nothing you got nothing to lose'.

MAGNIFICENT!!! The best album of all time???
I have all of Bob Dylan's albums but this one, in my opinion is the best. Blonde on Blonde, Blood On The Tracks and many more run it close, but it is Highway 61 that I keep coming back too. From the opening bars of Like A Rolling Stone, you are hooked and there is no going back. Just listen to the lyrics of the album from the start, ending with Desolation Row, which is Dylan's crown jewel on the album. No other songwriter on the planet could write Desolation Row! You have to hear it to believe it. In between there is Tombstone Blues, Ballad Of A Thin Man, Queen Jane, Highway 61, and Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues. All are simply superb.
This album changed rock music forever.... This is essential and fully deserves 5 stars. BUY IT NOW!!!

Dont listen to the guy who gave this 1 star. It is obvious that he doesnt realise that poetry doesnt need a political gain...

This album is as rough and ready as it comes. It sounds like it was a whirlwind session, as if everone ran into the studio to record it all in one go, one take each song, before everyone legged it out of the studio once again to follow Dylan on the next leg of his creative evolution. The song that sounds the worst on this album is Like a Rolling Stone; a fantastic song, powerful and spiteful in all its other forms, but the sound of the original is, dare I say it, horrendous. Listen to that 'chuga-a-lug-lug' guitar in the middle of the mix (possibly Dylan) especially when he loses the timing.

I always thought Tombstone Blues would've made a better start. This is a stonking song; violent, fast, like a steam train driving through your stereo. Dylan's voice on this is wonderful, so full of character, especially when he slyly and dirtily sneers "stop all this weeping, swallow your pride. You will not die, it's not poison" (my interpretation of this line doesn't bare thinking about!). The length of this song is impressive too. How they kept up that beat for the entire length of the song is a mystery.

It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry and From A Buick 6 are sublimely sluggish songs, kind of like (I can only imagine) rolling slowly down a muddy hill, but they still dont lose that loose urgency that appears with the other songs. Ballad of a Thin Man is possibly the dirtiest, most metaphorical song I've ever heard and is delivered with that same disgust and foreboding that poor old Mr Jones must feel for himself.
