Blood on the Tracks - Bob Dylan [two versions-original and bootleg New York Sessions version!]
(Click that image to see it larger and read the tracks etc on there)
I hope you liked the Björk album.
It ain't that bad is it?
I saw this great version of Dylan's 'Blood on the Tracks' somewhere the other day and had to get it. I was so glad I did. It is in my opinion, a whole lot better than the original released studio version! well, this isn't a released disc or anything as I am presuming it's a bootleg of sessions put together...hmmm google!
Here we go:
A quote from Here
"This incredible CD is the original New York session recordings taken directly from a mint condition test pressing of the intended release. While most tracks are the actual released versions, four on this CD were thrown away in favor of the Minneapolis versions. While the official BOTT is an impossibly ludicrous standard of comparison for non-released material.... this lone CD is a contender."
you see? I am not alone in thinking this is a f*cking blinder of a disc for any Dylan fans collection!
Go read more damn you:
wikipedia (bit of a let down on this one!
Seems there are a few different NY sessions from the BOTT time.
So to help you discover which one this is(!) I have listed the tracks from the back cover...which is included in the download.
01. Tangled Up In Blue (6:55)
02. Simple Twist Of Fate (4:26)
03. You're A Big Girl Now (4:26)
04. Idiot Wind (8:58)
05. You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go (3:06)
06. Meet Me In The Morning (4:29)
07. Lily, Rosemary And The Jack Of Hearts (9:55)
08. In You See Her Say Hello (3:28)
09. Shelter From The Storm (5:05)
10. Buckets Of Rain (3:24)
Tracks 1, 3, 4, 6 & 7 recorded at Columbia A&R studios, NY City, Sept 12th 1974
Tracks 2, 5, 9 & 10 recorded at Columbia A&R studios, NY City, Sept 16th 1974
Track 8 recorded at Columbia A&R studios, NY City, Sept 23rd 1974
(another possible problem - The cover says 'track 6 recorded at..) and yet it has already listed track 6 as being at the same date as the first tracks!? So I give it the benefit of the doubt that they meant to say track 8 as it is the only one missing from the list!)
Wait! Stop Press! I found it. Check Here. this is the same one!
Anyway...these are some of my all time favourite Dylan songs and I hope they bring you some enjoyment.
Wow...whilst looking for more websites on this, I discovered a few tracks of different versions! They are from other bootlegs which I think I can get pretty quickly if anyone wants them (I know I do!) but go to this page and click the links down by the left of the page to listen to the tracks being streamed. They give you two versions of each track, the final released BOTT version and a bootleg to compare how it differs.
There are 5 tracks in all. Oh and two outtakes too. Is that seven then? :)
I am downloading the streams and will re-up them so that you can have them for keeps instead of only playing them in a web browser which is a load of balls!
Remember the quality of a streamed file is usually low so when I re upload them don't be complaining about them being wma files or whatever they be!
There is also two tracks there that were not included in the final release so I haven't ever heard them...maybe you too. Names are Call Letters Blues & Up To Me (which I have to say is absolute classic pre-ego Dylan as far as I'm concerned!)
Enjoy this one.
OK I am out of here.
