With his second album, Dylan's delivers his first masterpiece.

On "Corrina, Corrina" Dylan performs with a backing band for the first time on record.
The album ranks on #97 on Rolling Stone's "The 500 greatest albums of all time" list, and it was one of the first recordings chosen by the Library of Congress to be added to the National Recording Registry.

Re-released in 2003 on a remastered Hybrid Stereo SACD.
