    It is odd to me there hasn't been more official live performance footage released from those shows over the years. Maybe it was all leading to this, but it is surprising to me.

    For real! What I have seen always looks so cool. I re-watched 'No Direction Home' two years ago and it was so good still, looking forward to this.

    Also I've decided to purchase 1 Dylan Mo-Fi release per month this year as a gift to m'self. Starting chronological like, which means the self titled comes first. It hasn't been my fav but I dig a lot of the covers and 'Song for Woody' is perfect, so stoked to spend some time with it.

    Reposting this because it is equally cool and strange.

    Swedish television show wanted to make experiments how it would feel to be alone in
    various activities that you normally share with others.

    So this lucky guy (Fredrik Wikingsson) got a Bob Dylan concert for one. (soundcheck but still) He is a big fan and it shows :)

    The Trouble no more box with 8cd is now reasonably priced
    Maybe has been for a while in US, but here it was just reduced from around $150 to $80-ish

    At the NRA museum in Springfield, MO inside of Bass Pro and I came across something that might be of interest to the Dylan fans.

    So they’re doing a replica of the test pressing of the full New York version of Blood on the Tracks for RSD 19. Gotta get me some of that!

    I'm a bit out of the loop, but having not bought the full version of the More Blood, More Tracks last fall, what versions will be on this RSD release that weren't on that?

    He originally recorded the album in New York and then just before Columbia released it, he decided to re-record the whole thing. The original album is half the New York Sessions and half from Minneapolis.

    I’d be more excited about a reissue of the unsped up Master.

    The main thing not on there is the so-called spooky organ on Idiot Wind. (And possibly You're a Big Girl Now - it's a while since I listened to it). The test pressing has considerable cachet, and lots of Dylan nuts were upset the exact versions used on it weren't on More Blood. All the tracks on it are from New York.

    Yeah, I am fairly aware of the history of the album, just figured that the original versions would have appeared on More Blood. I'll probably pick this up anyway.

    The New York acetate tracks are sprinkled throughout the More Blood 6 CD set. I compiled my own digital version of the New York acetate using the liner notes as my guide.

    The standard of that was a selection of alternate takes of the each album track from the sessions. The big one was loads of takes over multiple CDs.

    This is what was supposed to be the album. He cut it in late 1974, wasn’t 100% happy with it and when he was home for Christmas he played it to his brother who told him it was great but a bit one note in tone and tempo. He famously went back and re-recorded 5 of the songs early Jan and the album we know came out in late Jan 75.

    A few promos of the original cut had already been issued, he really did pull it at the last possible moment. This RSD version is the original cut mocked up to match the few promo copies that leaked.
