Bob Dylan

08/29/1965 : One of Bob Dylan's most important albums, 'Highway 61 Revisited' was released during this week in 1965. Dylan had plugged in, leaving the folk/protest crowd behind. Grabbing some great blues/rock players such as Chicago's Mike Bloomfield and Al Kooper, Dylan went into the studio and that's when the magic started. The rim shot intro to the ground breaking single Like A Rolling Stone was a real call to arms for music and politics in that decade.
