Highway 61. The actual highway.

I've traveled it many a time. Where it goes through Memphis is right by where I taught school. It was one of the two ways I could use to get to the school.

In Mississippi, the section from Memphis to Tunica has become super busy with all the casino traffic. A close friend's brother was killed on 61 driving to his job at one of the casinos.

There was quite a Beatles influence around the time of Blonde on Blonde. This is one of the tracks that didn't make it...

I only own The Freewheelin' and Highway 61 Revisited but both albums are lovely and I play them often.

*bump!* Bringing this back from the dead for the most remarkable news!

Volume 11 in The Bootleg Series has been announced for release on 4th November, and it is the one every Bobhead has been praying for since the series began - The Basement Tapes Complete. Complete! Not cherry-picking what they think is the best stuff, but "every salvageable recording". 6CDs, 138 tracks, with 30 never bootlegged - most not even rumoured! The sodding Holy Grail!

Compiled from meticulously restored original tapes--many found only recently--this historic six-disc set is the definitive chronicle of the artist's legendary 1967 recording sessions with members of his touring ensemble who would later achieve their own fame as The Band. 

The Basement Tapes Complete brings together, for the first time ever, every salvageable recording from the tapes including recently discovered early gems recorded in the "Red Room" of Dylan's home in upstate New York. 

Garth Hudson worked closely with Canadian music archivist and producer Jan Haust to restore the deteriorating tapes to pristine sound, with much of this music preserved digitally for the first time. The decision was made to present The Basement Tapes Complete as intact as possible. 

Also, unlike the official 1975 release, these performances are presented as close as possible to the way they were originally recorded and sounded back in the summer of 1967. The tracks onThe Basement Tapes Complete run in mostly chronological order based on Garth Hudson's numbering system.

Damn expensive! £110 on Amazon for the UK! But it will and must be bought!

Alongside there will be a 38-track 2CD "pick-of" The Basement Tapes Raw.

And the rumour is that next-up will be Blood on the Tracks.

I was listening to Concert for Bangladesh last night and ended up listening to It Takes a Train... about 8 times. The entire song is great, but  Iespecially love the (half) verse:

"Well I want to be your lover, I don't want to be your boss

Don't say I never warned you If your train gets lost"

Half of what I say is meaningless... I feel good in a special way, I'm in love and it's a sunny day BeatlesBible.com earns royalties if you use these links when shopping: Amazon | iTunes

I was thrilled to hear about that long-awaited Basement Tapes box...but DAMN it's going to be expensive! :(

Well, it's been rumoured for months, ever since this

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZ2PHtS2bKg

appeared on Bobby's official site earlier this year, and now the details of his 36th studio album have been announced.

It's called Shadows in the Night, and will be released on 3 February, and is - believe it or not, unlikely as it seems, etc - Bobby does Sinatra!!!!!

It was a real privilege to make this album. I’ve wanted to do something like this for a long time but was never brave enough to approach 30-piece complicated arrangements and refine them down for a 5-piece band. That’s the key to all these performances. We knew these songs extremely well. It was all done live. Maybe one or two takes. No overdubbing. No vocal booths. No headphones. No separate tracking, and, for the most part, mixed as it was recorded.

I don’t see myself as covering these songs in any way. They’ve been covered enough. Buried, as a matter a fact. What me and my band are basically doing is uncovering them. Lifting them out of the grave and bringing them into the light of day.

Here's the tracklisting:

I’m a Fool to Want You
The Night We Called It a Day
Stay With Me
Autumn Leaves
Why Try to Change Me Now
Some Enchanted Evening
Full Moon and Empty Arms
Where Are You
What’ll I Do
That Lucky Old Sun

Who'd have thunk it?!!!!

i haven't seen a Bob Dylan Appreciation thread on this website. So i made one. Here you can talk about your favorite Albums, Songs, and other stuff about Bob Dylan. My Favorite Album by Bob Dylan is "Blood on The Tracks" and Probably Tangled Up in Blue is my Favorite Song

I Think that Rolling Stone should do a cover story of The Rolling Stones covering "Like a Rolling Stone" or if a Type of Beetle was named after The Beatles.

On a bit of a bum note it seems we have had the last of Dylan's European "Copyright Extension" limited releases (or that, if another does emerge, it will consist only of live recordings, with possibly a few home recordings).

The reason? It's a good one, folks! The next edition of The Bootleg Series (Volume 12) will be released on 6 November and is called The Cutting Edge 1965-1966.

The Bootleg Series is about to explore the sessions for Bringing It Back HomeHighway 61 Revisited and Blonde on Blonde.

As with The Basement Tapes set (Volume 11) this will also come in 2-disc (highlights) and 6-disc (deluxe) sets. However, the 6-disc is also a highlights package.

The monster is a limited edition 18-disc (!!!!!!!!) set the includes everything recorded for those three albums. (God knows what that is gonna cost!!!)

Rolling Stone has the tracklisting for the 2- (40 tracks) and 6-disc (110 tracks) versions. The tracklisting for the 18-disc version has yet to be announced (though could be any moment). It's gonna be fascinating to see if there are any surprises in there.

Crap!!! I've just seen the surface details on the 18-disc set I pictured in the spoiler above.

379 tracks!!!

Bonus, it adds the 9 mono singles from that time.

So far out of my price range it's almost laughable (though I'd have to recommend it as an investment if it can be afforded).

It says that it includes hotel recordings, all of which I've got. However, it names Denver as one of them. One of the crappiest recordings I've ever heard. If they've managed to do something with it, hats off.

And it all comes with a "high resolution" download code if you don't want to play the discs.

Damn!!! Two Dylan things in the last year so far out of my price range that I can't find an excuse. That's (very nearly) a month's money...

But, God!, what a beautiful item!!!!

$599.99 is taking the piss. Yeah, 5,000 copies only every going to be made and released but no amount of outtakes would make most fans go that way especially when within a few months, heck in a feck days, all of it will be up online in excellent sound quality for free. But you dont get 

  • A leopard skin printed spindle
  • A strip of film cells from an original print of the ‘Don’t Look Back’ film
  • Certificate of authenticity

Balls. How will life continue or the music sound as good without those sitting gathering dust in your house?

 

If this was Apple and The Beatles they would get slaughtered by 99% of everyone before they all went and downloaded it from many a place on the net. Kind of like what most did with the official '63 bootleg on itunes, and that only cost $40 or something!! But we didnt get a book! Or the right track details!! Or even 1 feckin' CD!!!! ahdn_paul_01

Admittedly true. Though if Apple were to release such a comprehensive set for Rubber SoulRevolver and Sgt. Pepper, who here wouldn't pay $1.58 a track (that's what it boils down to, without all the packaging and extras)?
