1:40 Favourite Album: Highway 61 Revisited - Bob Dylan (c) 1965

Highway 61 Revisited is the sixth studio album by the poet-laureate of 60's pop, Bob Dylan. It's named for the main road which once stretched from the Canada-US border through Dylan's home town of Duluth, Minnesota, all the way down to New Orleans.

The route passed near the birthplaces of Muddy Waters and Elvis Presley and was long associated with blues legends Bessie Smith and Robert Johnson who is alleged to have sold his soul to the devil at the highway's crossroads with Route 49.
