Highway 61 Revisited, Revisited

It's a sure sign of the greatness of a record if you can put together a collection of cover-versions of just the songs on that record. And, no, I'm not talking about tribute albums; this is my cherry-picked set of personal favorite covers of all the songs on Highway 61, plus 3 bonus versions of songs that were bumped from the original for various reasons. Some of these are live, some are rare, and one (the Winkies track) had to edited to remove an irrelevant introduction. Front and back artwork included.

Love ya, Bobby!

01. Like A Rolling Stone - Jimi Hendrix Experience
02. Tombstone Blues - Richie Havens
