    This review is for the 12/16 Mobile Fidelity 180G – 45 RPM Mono Vinyl version. This is the most amazing version of this masterpiece I have ever heard. His vocals are front and center and open up very nicely throughout the room. The instrumentation is tight but able to open up and breathe at the same time, bringing this album to life!The vinyl is flat and as quiet as can be and is limited to only 3000 copies. I just got mine for only $42.00 before the prices started going up, and it was worth every penny. Highly recommended!!!This album was meant to be listened to in Mono, just the way it was recorded.

    Highway 61 Revisited is Bob Dylan’s profile album. Containing all the sorts of material he wanted to make and all the sounds he envisioned. Dylan takes the opportunity to lash out against others in “Like A Rolling Stone” and lash out against the wild fanfare and press that followed him around in his early years in “Ballad of A Thin Man”. This is the obsessive, resentful and fun Bob Dylan that was dwelling deep inside. Al Kooper joins on organ and really defines the mood of the whole album, while Mike Bloomfield joins with some real stoney and radical guitar licks. “From A Buick 6” and the title track get real bluesy and show off some of Dylan’s most surreal lyrics while the 11 minute closer “Desolation Row” takes on an intimate portrayal of the world. In Highway 61 Revisited Dylan really sheds his skin and is looking to lose listeners. The music is deviant and tempting, the lyrics are surreal and in your face and the overall tone is one of playful delight, yet, in doing so Dylan has created some of the most captivating songs he would ever make. Fortunately, this album would be followed by his masterpiece “Blonde On Blonde”, meanwhile this album will tear out your ears and make you rethink your position in the world. Be sure to checkout “It Takes a Lot to Laugh, It Takes a Train to Cry” , the highlight of the album.
