Wild Wolf 6506 [T-174]

Highway 61 Revisited sessions (June 15-August 2, 1965)

Tracklist: Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window, Sitting On A Barbed Wire Fence, Like A Rolling Stone, Ballad Of A Thin Man, Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues, Highway 61 Revisited, Positively Fourth Street, It Takes A Lot To Laugh, Tombstone Blues, Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window, Desolation Row, Queen Jane Approximately, From A Buick 6

DEEP: Another reissue from the Scorpio folks, this one presenting the Highway 61 Revisited acetate tracks, including different mixes, mono mixes, outtakes and alternate/single versions (most notably the "Desolation Row" outtake). Quality is excellent but do expect the flaws in the acetate to cause some pops and clicks, and there are short periods where a buzzing noise is evident. A nice collection of things you may or may not have elsewhere. The package features some wild color pics of Bob from this period and many B&W pics from 1965 inside the studio.

NOTE: The CD packaging identifies this disc as "Highway 61 Revisted [sic] Again." Although the disc is most often reported as taken from Highway 61 Revisited acetates, the source for most tracks is apparently a reel-to-reel compilation of session mixes made in early August 1965 for copyright/publishing purposes.
