Bob Dylan: Highway 61 Revisisted (180g Edition)

LP auf SUNDAZED RECORDS von Bob Dylan - Highway 61 Revisisted (180g Edition)


Man, the times were really changin' now. Having made half of Bringing It All Back Home with an electric band, Bob Dylan was now firmly committed to a new musical path. The shock and awe he experienced in response to his brief electric set at the Newport Folk Festival in July 1965 only strengthened his resolve. While this electrified journey was new, he chose to follow an old familiar route for inspiration. Since before he was born, Highway 61 had stretched from the Mississippi Delta up to the Canadian border, forming the infamous 'crossroads' at Highway 49 in Clarksdale, Mississippi and running north through Minnesota, Dylan's home state. Its legend and mythology had captivated him from an early age, as he acknowledged, 'Highway 61, the main thoroughfare of country blues, begins about where I began. I always felt like I'd started on it, always been on it and could go anywhere, even down into the deep Delta country. It was the same road, full of the same contradictions, the same one-horse towns, the same spiritual ancestors...It was my place in the universe, always felt like it was in my blood.' No wonder then that he chose this long, winding road to revisit.

Having returned from an exhausting UK tour in May 1965, Dylan was physically and mentally drained. He briefly considered retiring from the music business in disgust. Fortunately, the opening sessions for what would become Highway 61 Revisited turned him around. On July 15th and 16th, he returned to Columbia's Studio A in New York City to record a new composition, 'Like a Rolling Stone.' Its cascading, image-laden verses acted like a tonic, allowing Dylan to vent his visions and frustrations in one epic, six-minute-plus statement. No matter that it was over twice as long as the usual single of the day. It was such a brilliant, focused distillation of the current cultural zeitgeist that the normal rules didn't apply. The song's opening snare snap was like a cannon shot, brazenly fired over the bow of complacent society, destined to forever change it in ways that even its creator couldn't foresee. How did it feel' If you were one of the Dylan faithful, it felt absolutely great.

Yet, internal company resistance to its lengthy running time and raw, unfettered sound conspired to delay the single's release. The sales and marketing departments were particularly vocal in their disapproval. However, an enterprising employee named Shaun Considine spirited out a demo copy of the song and took it to a New York discotheque named Arthur to give it a test spin for an unbiased audience. The crowd response was immediate and they demanded so many repeat plays that the demo eventually wore out. The next morning, a disc jockey and program director of two of NYC's biggest radio stations called Columbia to demand airplay copies, abruptly ending the internal company boycott. 'Like a Rolling Stone' went on to become Dylan's biggest hit to date, peaking at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100, just beneath the Beatles' 'Help.' Well played, Mr. Considine.

As rapturous as that single was, Highway 61 Revisited had much more to offer than just one stellar song. Reflecting the album's title, blues runs as a thread throughout the LP's framework, both in song titles like 'Tombstone Blues' and in the unrelenting, charging chord structure of 'Like a Buick 6.' Speaking of the album title, Dylan had to battle Columbia on that point as well. When he submitted it, they were nonplussed, as he explained: 'I wanted to call that album Highway 61 Revisited. Nobody understood it. I had to go up the f**king ladder until finally the word came down and said: 'Let him call it what he wants to call it'.' 

 The battles over the title and single, as well as his new electric approach, only seemed to embolden him. In turn, his passion inspired fiery performances from the session musicians, especially in the organ work of Al Kooper and the stinging guitar leads of Mike Bloomfield. On the album's one acoustic cut, the epic 'Desolation Row,' an impromptu studio visit by Nashville musician Charlie McCoy led to him playing second acoustic guitar with Dylan on the song. This initial meeting would yield major dividends on Dylan's next triumphant album, Blonde on Blonde.

Sundazed Music is proud to present this seminal album in its rare mono form. It has been sourced directly from the original Columbia analog mono masters to provide a superior listening experience.

Interpreten-Beschreibung "Dylan, Bob"

Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan - The Answer My Friend Is Blowin' In The Wind

 

Literaturnobelpreis 2016 geht an Bob Dylan!

Der Sänger und Songwriter wird für seine poetischen Neuschaffungen in der großen amerikanischen Tradition des Songschreibens geehrt.

 

Bob Dylan - bürgerlich Robert Zimmermann - wurde als Sohn eines jüdischen Kaufmanns geboren und wuchs in der Kleinstadt Hibbing auf. Nach einem abgebrochenen Studium an der Universität von Minnesota tauchte er im Herbst 1960 im New Yorker Künstlerviertel Greenwich Village auf. 


Bob Dylan hatte kein Geld und suchte in Cafés und Nachtklubs Jobs, um seine Lieder vorzusingen. ln dieser Zeit soll es ihm auch gelungen sein, zu dem todkranken Folksong-Idol Woody Guthrie ins Krankenhaus vorzudringen. Dylan schrieb Hit-Titel, die die Gemütsverfassung der Jugend in aller Welt widerspiegelte - Signale, die die Jugend auch sofort aufnahm und begriff: „The Times They Are Changing', „Blowin ln The Wind', „Too Many Mornings' und Zahllose andere. Es entstanden Lieder wie „Mr. Tambourine Man', „Like A Rolling Stone', „Rainy Day Women' und „Blonde On Blonde', das erste Doppelalbum der Rock-Ära.

lm Sommer 1966 zog sich Bob Dylan nach einem schweren Motorradunfall in die totale Emigration zurück. Er ließ die Gerüchte, er sei taub, schwachsinnig oder gar tot unwidersprochen. Seine einzigen Lebenszeichen in jeder Zeit blieben die Platten - so die Country-LP „John Wesley Harding', die einen ausgereiften Rock-Moralisten erkennen ließ, der als Vorbild wieder einmal die Szene veränderte. 1974 machte Dylan die Sensation perfekt. Bob Dylan trat aus dem Schatten hervor ins Rampenlicht und gab nach 8 Jahren Pause während einer 6-Wochen-Tournee erstmals wieder Konzerte.
