Bob Dylan: Highway 61 Revisited
At http://www.rateyourmusic.com/ this album ranks as the third best of all time. Therefore the album was a rather obvious choice for closer scrutiny, so I went to our local library and found a copy of the CD. Ripped it onto my computer, listened and was literally swept of my feeds.
It is 40 (forty!!!) years old, which means it is 4 years older than I am. But it sounds like a spring chicken, which it is not exactly the way you will describe me.
Needless to say I immediately ordered the album! Ripping, copying, file sharing etc. is fine when learning about old or new music. But remember to say "thank you" to the artists and go buy their stuff if you like it!
