Background: Bob Dylan’s 1965 LP, Highway 61 Revisited turned a lot of heads, and Dylan’s new electric approach caught a lot of listeners by surprise. This album contains numerous well-known songs, from the title track to Like a Rolling Stone to From a Buick 6.
The album reached #3 on the U.S. album chart.
Taking the first, electric side of Bringing It All Back Home to its logical conclusion, Bob Dylan hired a full rock & roll band, featuring guitarist Michael Bloomfield, for Highway 61 Revisited. …Throughout the album, he embraces druggy, surreal imagery, which can either have a sense of menace or beauty, and the music reflects that, jumping between soothing melodies to hard, bluesy rock.
