Highway 61 Revisited was released in August 1965. Dylan used rock musicians as his backing band on every track of the album, except for the closing 11-minute ballad, “Desolation Row.” Critics have focused on the innovative way in which Dylan combined driving, blues-based music with the subtlety of poetry to create songs that captured the political and cultural chaos of contemporary America.

Leading with the hit single “Like a Rolling Stone,” the album features songs that Dylan has continued to perform live over his long career, including “Ballad Of A Thin Man” and “Highway 61 Revisited.” He named the album after the major American highway which connected his birthplace, Duluth, Minnesota, to southern cities famed for their musical heritage, including St. Louis, Memphis, New Orleans, and the Delta Blues area of Mississippi.
