47 Years from Highway 61 to the Duquense Whistle

Leave it to my son Lee to tell me when I came home from work tonight that today is the 47th anniversary of the release of Highway 61 Revisited the album the changed the history of rock music.  As all Bob Dylan fans know his new CD called Tempest will be released on September 11.  Today one cut called the Duquense Whistle was released by NPR.  I am sure that WFUV will play it from time to time.

Anyway whistles have appeared in Bob Dylan songs before. "I can hear that whistle blowin’" is from Tonight I'll be Staying Here with You from Nashville Skyline that was issued in 1969.
