From A Buick 6 - Bob Dylan - Highway 61 Revisited (CD, Album) download full album zip cd mp3 vinyl flac
The loss of this one is disgusting because you can bet your left ball that it's on the shelf of some rich fuck who paid someone plenty for it. I don't believe it is "missing". Someone has it. Mobile Fidelity cut this double 45 from, as they say, "the best available analog source but they are not saying what that is. The original 1A pressing of this album is now "the master tape" and it contains a different version of "From a Buick 6" than is here, or is on most pressings.
It's faster and higher in energy and why it was removed and replaced with a slower version is anyone's guess including at this point probably Dylan himself. The point is: if you have an original 1A pressing you're set. It has an organic fullness and midband cohesion that this otherwise excellent double 45 lacks, though this mastering, somewhat brighter and instrumentally more separated, has its own sonic attractiveness.
It still sounds like a CD though. Listening to this double 45 you'll kind of know you're not listening to a master tape or even to a copy thereof, in my opinion, but as with The Band's second album, Mobile Fidelity's high resolution mastering chain works its own magic so unless you can get a clean original 1A, 1B or so this one's the one.
The 2B gives way to this reissue. And there you have it: something is happening but you don't know what it is. It has been sourced directly from the original Columbia analog mono masters to provide a superior listening experience.
Is it not from a master? My extra clean orig copy with the alt From a Buick 6 has always sounded great to my ears, as well as the 2A for completion sake. I was trying to help the folk above who were asking why the two recent mono ressiues claim to have used a master tape. As we are talking 'bout a different tape. The mono master is still available, the stereo is the one that is MIA. The new reissue is really close and is on much quieter vinyl than the 60's Columbia stuff.
I would atrribute the difference to the mastering chain tube gear vs modern solid state gear, and the fact that Columbia was cutting from a fresh tape in ' The quiet surfaces and detail contained on the new Sony reissue are exceptional, and if I had to guess it sure doesn't sound like it was sourced from a dub or copy tape. Occasionally Amazon or PopMarket will offer this set for a great price, as such it's well worth grabing as an adjunct to the 60s originals.
Hoffman now claims that he used a copy tape for the DCC, because he knows he's been outed I was too young for being part of the fan club of the younger Dylan. I dicovered Dylan around and from than on I visited one live concert of Dylan every year. Still, I don't care much about Dylans old records never-the-less I own all of them by now. It is the Dylan today that fascinates me. Last Saturday he played a live gig here in Vienna.
And - oh boy! Seeing surely more than 50 live acts per year from young artists up to stars like Prince or operas with Netrebko or anythin close. Nothing - really nothing catches something like the meaning of life so purely as Dylan and his band in these last years. Their instrumental playing is humanistic like a Mozart score.
And Dylans voice cuts through your brain and your heart. Lots of young people have been there. Astonished and deeply moved have been there faces. Go out, see and listen to Dylan today! And what we need is a huge vinyl box with live acts of Dylan between and ! The recent last 3 years Dylan sets I've seen have been transcendent events, unlike anything else on the road. Check bobolinks.
It is Dylan himself who holds up the cards with some of the lyrics. Allen Ginsberg is only seen in the background.
I don't have them handy, is the mono version of "from a Buick six" the same speed as the faster first pressing stereo, or the later slower second pressing? Inquiring minds want to know.
I think Mo-Fi must be griven some credit for disclosing the OM wasn't found - they told me the same when I enquired some weeks ago. Thanks Michael for another good review and much better than one I read in a magazine rack. Both versions do make you wonder about the recording tho'. Wonder about the source material used for that album. One of my favorite Dylan albums! Would be fascinating to know. And somebody must. This is not the sort of thing nobody would know.
First, someone had to hand the thing over, second, money, a lot of it would have to change hands, third, it would be hard for the guy not to occasionally "mention", "Oh, I've got the A not knowing person around such a rich guy could easily think that that reel is not important at all We want to improve and not be routed in a particular pressing.
Since moving to the west, I have owned a few copies of Highway 61 on compact discs; in my opinion, the best sonic fidelity was part of the SACD box set release.
They say other than the fact that everything can be replaced! Mr Fremer — could you please share the link of your review of the Mono box set?
I have read all of the comments such vitriol! Lets discuss Columbia, since Highway 61 was released by them. The album was recorded in I have never had the tape in my hands but I would bet the ranch that it was recorded on Acetate tape. Most likely it was recorded on Scotch LRwhich was an experimental tape that later became or actually on Scotch Neither one of these types of tape held up very well. Both were subject to "pinning" see Richard Hess's web site and warping.
By the mid s Columbia engineers had already From A Buick 6 - Bob Dylan - Highway 61 Revisited (CD that MANY of the early masters recorded on this tape and Scotch had begun to deteriorate and would no longer wind properly on reels. They called these "bad winders" and started making dubs of these tapes as protection copies and new masters. They instituted a filing system whereby the new tapes had a "dash" number.
So, the first copy from an old master was labeled "Dash-2". If a copy was made of the Dash-2 it was called Dash-3 and so on. It's a pretty good bet that if a tape of Highway 61 does exist the best case scenario is that it's a Album) and more likely a Dash-3 or Dash Starting around they started digitizing the entire library. A project that was headed up by Columbia Engineer, Larry Keyes look him up.
Now, in case you haven't noticed, a LOT of time has passed since Consider that if the tapes were in bad shape then, what condition are they in NOW? The answer is somewhere between unplayable and not good enough to use for mastering. Either way, for the purposes of pressing new records they are useless. There are other types of tape that also turned out to have a From A Buick 6 - Bob Dylan - Highway 61 Revisited (CD short shelf life. Audio Devices AudioTapeReeves Soundcraft, Kodak and others all made mastering tape that simply was not what it was cracked up to be.
If a master was recorded on those types of tape it's probably done and been done a very long time. Fortunately, not all tapes were bad. Starting in the later s Scotch came out withwhich was a polyester based version of It is amazingly hearty tape and most masters recorded on still play as well today as they did when they were recorded.
The same thing applies to Scotch Ampex had some good formulations back then as well, before they started using carbon back coating. I have handled plenty of masters recorded on those formulations and they play as well today as ever. So, the problem is the "old stuff", recorded before any given studio switched over to the "newer" tape formulations. Now, before you go on hating collectors for stealing master tapes consider this. When Bell Sound, in New York, closed it's doors in the s letters were sent out to every record company that had tapes stored there.
That's a REAL number. I'm not making it up. That scenario has occurred many times since so who knows how many have been lost. When the "bean counters" took over running the record labels they figured that the cost of storage was no longer worth keeping the tapes and after making the digital copies, out they went. So you see, it is the record companies themselves that are more responsible for the tapes being missing then anyone else!
In fact, collectors have been, at least in some part, responsible for saving some of these old tapes. All of the Rhino re-issues of these artists came from those tapes and NO, it wasn't me. There are other examples of this too but I won't get into it now. In closing, if you are looking at a new pressing of a record recorded after about or there's a really good chance that there is some kind of decent original tape somewhere. Prior to that time, good luck!
If pre master tapes aren't any good anymore then how do you explain that Dylan's Mobile Fidelity Blonde on Blonde recorded in and mastered with the original master tape sounds so damn good?
It sounds like that tape must have been in great shape! I'm not sure why, but everyone seems to take comments made here as absolutes. Nowhere in my comments did I say that ALL tapes recorded at that time are bad.
For instance, I have seen badly warped reels of Scotch and rolls that played like new. It depends on how they were stored, how many times they were run and so forth. Some of them ARE still good. Also, not ALL tapes manufactured at that time have these problems. If the original was recorded on Scotch orwhich to correct a statement I made in my prior post, actually was introduced init's probably again, no definite in great shape.
I've never had the Blonde On Blonde master in my hands so I don't know what it was recorded on. In all likelihood it was a dub of that master. I just know that I'm going to get flack over this but, none-the-less, PROPERLY recorded dubs of original masters even three generations down sound just as good as the originals.
The human ear simply isn't sensitive enough to hear the difference. By the fourth generation SOME people can hear a difference. You can argue this point all you want but It's still a fact. I read comments like Yours all over the internet place. There was no drummer, as the drummer had gone home. After Dylan and Kooper spent the weekend in Woodstock writing chord charts for the songs,  sessions resumed at Studio A on August 2.
One final session was held on August 4, again at Studio A. Most of the session was devoted to completing "Desolation Row". The resulting album, Highway 61 Revisitedhas been described as "Dylan's first purely 'rock' album",  a realization of his wish to leave his old music format behind and move on from his all-acoustic first four albums and half-acoustic, half-electric fifth album, Bringing It All Back Home. Documentary director D.
Pennebakerwho filmed Dylan on his acoustic UK tour in Mayhas said: "I didn't know that he was going to leave acoustic. I did know that he was getting a little dragged by it. Highway 61 Revisited opens with " Like a Rolling Stone ", which has been described as revolutionary in its combination of electric guitar licks, organ chords, Earth Boy - Elvis Presley - Girls!
Dylan's voice, "at once so young and so snarling The fast-paced, two-chord blues song " Tombstone Blues ", driven by Michael Bloomfield's lead guitar, uses a parade of historical characters—outlaw Belle Starrbiblical temptress DelilahJack the Ripper represented in this song as a successful businessmanJohn the Baptist described here as a torturerand blues singer Ma Rainey who Dylan humorously suggests shared a sleeping bag with composer Beethoven —to sketch an absurdist account of contemporary America.
For critics Mark Polizzotti and Andy Gill, the reality behind the song is the then-escalating Vietnam War ; both writers hear the "king of the Philistines" who sends his slaves "out to the jungle" as a reference to President Lyndon B.
AllMusic critic Bill Janovitz describes " From a Buick 6 " as a "raucous, up-tempo blues", which is played "almost recklessly". He writes that the song became the anthem of an in-group, "disgusted by the old, excited by the new Polizzotti, in his study of Highway 61 Revisitedwrites that the opening track of Side Two, " Queen Jane Approximately " is in a similar vein to "Like a Rolling Stone", but the From A Buick 6 - Bob Dylan - Highway 61 Revisited (CD offers "a touch of sympathy and even comfort in place of relentless mockery".
Dylan concludes Highway 61 Revisited with the sole acoustic exception to his rock album. Gill has characterized " Desolation Row " as "an minute epic of entropy, which takes the form of a Fellini-esque parade of grotesques and oddities featuring a huge cast of iconic characters". These include historical celebrities such as Einstein and Nerothe biblical characters Noah and Cain and Abelthe Shakespearian figures of Ophelia and Romeoending with literary titans T.
Eliot and Ezra Pound. The first non-album outtake from the Highway 61 Revisited sessions to be released was the single "Positively 4th Street",  although on an early pressing of the single Columbia used another Highway 61 outtake, "Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window?

These are works in progress.
The cover artwork was photographed by Daniel Kramer several weeks before the recording sessions. He's almost challenging me or you or whoever's looking at it: 'What are you gonna do about it, buster? In the British music press, initial reviews of Highway 61 expressed both bafflement and admiration for the record. New Musical Express critic Allen Evans wrote: "Another set of message songs and story songs sung in that monotonous and tuneless way by Dylan which becomes quite arresting as you listen.
There is a marathon 'Desolation Row' which has an enchanting tune and mysterious, Album), possibly half-baked words. Highway 61 Revisited has remained among the most highly acclaimed of Dylan's works. Biographer Anthony Scaduto praises its rich imagery, and describes it as "one of the most brilliant pop records ever made. As rock, it cuts through to the core of the music—a hard driving beat without frills, without self-consciousness.
The whole rock culture, the whole post- Beatle pop-rock world, and so in an important sense the s started here. Among Dylan's contemporaries, Phil Ochs was impressed by Highway 61explaining: "It's the kind of music that plants a seed in your mind and then you have to hear it several times.
