This is the first version of this album I have ever owned. "Highway 61 Revisited" was always my favorite Dylan album and I never purchased any of the 70's albums until the SACD reissues and I purchased all of the Dylan SACD's. This album just didn't get any play at all among my friends in the 70's and I was only vaguely familiar with it.Bought this album back in '75 around the same time as PHYSICAL GRAFFITI. Dug 'em both a lot, and BOTT has stood up very well--only a handful of Dylan's '60s album are as good, a few better, perhaps, but he was never this intimate on a song-by-song basis before or since(hard to believe that a monstrosity like "Hurricane" came next), with an equal dose of reflection, regret, and(dare I say it)humility, even humanity. That 'protest singer' was long gone. Never get tired of this one, and the mix does it proud...
the M/C SACD is the best version of BotT's, Linda?11. The BEST 70's Dylan album, although Desire in SQ is nearly as good. I've owned the LP with original back cover, re-done LP, CD, 1/2 speed LP and the SACD. It is THE version to own.
