Bob Dylan
Highway 61 Revisited

  (Item #: dylanhighw_1907_) 

Our Price: $299.99

  • A superb 360 Stereo pressing of Dylan's 1965 release with Nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) sound on both sides, right up there with our Shootout Winner
  • Live-in-Your-Listening-Room sound throughout - guaranteed miles beyond any copy you've ever heard
  • In the same way Sgt. Pepper changed music a mere two years later, Highway 61 Revisited left all of Dylan's contemporaries behind, scrambling to keep up with the standard it set
  • 5 stars: "Dylan had not only changed his sound, but his persona, trading the folk troubadour for a streetwise, cynical hipster ... it proved that rock & roll needn't be collegiate and tame in order to be literate, poetic, and complex."

It's a dense but accessible pop record and ranks as his third masterpiece in a row."

  • Wes Montgomery's outstanding posthumous release makes its Hot Stamper debut, with superb Nearly Triple Plus (A++ to A+++) sound throughout, just shy of our Shootout Winner!
  • The stereo sound here is Tubey Magical, lively and clear, with three-dimensionality that will fill your listening room from wall to wall
  • Assembled using additional material from the live Smokin' at the Half Note sessions, this collection served as the perfect memorial to Montgomery's musical genius
  • Grammy Award Winner for Best Jazz Instrumental Album
  • "... what you will hear, bathed in winds or not, is prime, mature Wes Montgomery stretching out in full, with unbelievable confidence in his ear and technique at all times..."
