Back to Highway 61

I have aways been a bit averse to Bob Dylan.

I have recognised him as being one of the best songwriters ever, but not the best singer of his own songs.

This situation changed yesterday.

I listened to Andy Kershaw’s sublime documentary “Back to Highway 61” about the making of Highway 61 Revisited. It is utterly fascinating. I then listened to the whole of Highway 61 Revisited on Spotify and, guess what? I actually enjoyed it. A lot. Indeed, so wowed by it was I that I am thinking of getting a T-Shirt with “Desolation Row” on it.

They do exist!
