Revisited, revisited

Fifty years ago later this week. August 30, 1965 to be exact.

Hwy61cover One of the more interesting, unexpected and outlandish albums in modern American music. And the first of many changes in musical direction for its author, who wasn’t afraid to upset the apple cart of expectations and go in some new direction. As he’s quoted to have said “I try my hardest to be just like I am“.

Oh God said to Abraham, “Kill me a son”
Abe says, “Man, you must be puttin’ me on”
God say, “No.” Abe say, “What?”
God say, “You can do what you want Abe, but
The next time you see me comin’ you better run”
Well Abe says, “Where do you want this killin’ done?”
God says, “Out on Highway 61”
