Boomer Anthems: Highway 61 Revisited

Dylan, once in a lifetime. perfect confluence of music and lyrics and a singing voice rough enough so even lousy singers could get through the songs.
He hit the vein of what was going on in peoples' heads back then. admittedly his later albums were not as dynamic.

Dylan by himself eclipsed the Beatles and Stones.

Oh, go ahead, flame away dear readers. How 'bout some noise from the Dead heads, uh?
Like, where's Frankie Valley right now? The Carpenters?

"And if my thought-dreams could been seen
They'd probably put my head in a guillotine
But it's alright, Ma, it's life, and life only."

Where ya gonna get lyrics like that, huh?

Right with you there, Chas. I first had this album on a monaural LP. I wore it out. I've worn out several copies, and the music just doesn't get old.
