9/10 Luke Knight Customer review, 12th November 2015
Be transported by the awesome tracks on this Rolling Stone, It takes a lot to laugh, it takes a train to cry.
If you love Blonde on Blonde you will love this,
This album is probably the most bluesy Dylan, Highway 61 is the road that goes past the birth places of Muddy Waters, Son House, Elvis Presley and Charley Patton and Bessie Smith died on Highway 61.
You can hear all their influences coming together in the expert songwriting of Zimmermann here.
You can hear Dylans drained voice from constant touring.
Dylan said writing Like a Rolling Stone washed away all of his dissatisfaction and is Dylan first pure rock album listen to this album on vinyl as soon as you can it's like organic blues power that understands your tired pain.
10/10 Jack Customer review, 11th November 2015
This album is indisputably one of rock history's major milestones, so much subsequent music owes a debt to this album. Bob Dylan had on his previous album Bringing it all Back Home experimented with a partially electric album, but here he goes the whole way through with a complete electric album. It is, however, far from the only thing that makes this album so special. It is first of all the great songs and the subtle lyrics that have both bite and wit. Virtually all of the album's songs have become classics.
