Please take a moment to complete a brief survey:
Highway 61 Revisited is the sixth studio album by the American singer-
songwriter Bob Dylan, released in August 1965. Having until then
recorded mostly acoustic music, Dylan used rock musicians as his backing
band on every track of the album, except for the closing 11-minute
ballad, "Desolation Row". Critics have focused on the innovative way in
which Dylan combined driving, blues-based music with the subtlety of
poetry to create songs that captured the political and cultural chaos of
contemporary America. Leading with the single "Like a Rolling Stone" (a
top-10 hit in several countries), the album features songs that Dylan
has continued to perform live over his long career, including "Ballad of
a Thin Man" and "Highway 61 Revisited". He named the album after the
major North American highway connecting his birthplace, Duluth,
Minnesota, to southern cities famed for their musical heritage,
including St. Louis, Memphis, and New Orleans. The album, which peaked
at No. 3 in the United States charts and No. 4 in the United Kingdom,
was ranked No. 4 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
"Like a Rolling Stone" was listed at No. 1 on Rolling Stone's 500
Greatest Songs of All Time list.
