Terry Reid--Highway 61 Revisited

Terry Reid is the guy who was asked to be the lead singer of Led Zepplin but turned it down.  Judging by the set of pipes this guy has, it makes sense that he was considered.  However, Terry was a bit more of a huggie-kissie hippie than he was a hard rocker.  He went on to be a very popular folk singer in Europe.  Before all that, though, he put out a few rockin' tunes including this version of Bob Dylan's "Highway 61 Revisited."

Here it for yourself.

Most of Terry's material isn't so bluesy as this.  It vears towards soul-music more than blues.  However, if you're into late 60's hippie rock, you may also find the whole album "Superlungs" to your liking.  It not only has "Highway 61" but it has a couple rocking songs like "Superlungs" and "Tinker Taylor."
