This could be... interesting: http://www.nme.com/news/bob-dylan/46529


I'd like to see him do it like the Beach Boys Christmas Albums, i.e. thier hits but reworked into Christmas songs. Sleigh Lady Sleigh anyone?


I Want Yule?


Snowing In The Wind?


Stuck Inside of Mobile with the New Year Jools Again?

"Christmas In The Heart" has a release date... er, next week: http://www.bobdylan.com/#/news/christmas-heart-be-released-october-13 (my local's already got it in. I think it'd be a bit weird to buy it though.)

I went to see Bob at Hop Farm on Saturday. He wasn't the best I've seen him, but he was still Dylan, and there were great moments - particularly in the middle of the set:
 
quote:

Dressed in white cowboy hat, grey suit, sparkly pink shirt and pink bow-tie, trailing his smartly-dressed band, the titular wizard Bob Dylan strolls onto the stage. This is the fifth time I've seen him over the past eight years and every one - to differing degrees - has been a joy, with the two Sheffield shows (2007 and 2009) standing out as being among the most memorable concerts I've attended. If this gig can't consistently scale those heights – and is three or four songs lighter than a standard Dylan show – it has some glorious moments, and it's great fun to see Bob outdoors, singing direct to the crowd and grinning as – despite his best efforts, Like a Rolling Stone becomes a mass sing-along.

quote:

It isn't until Dylan delves into his seminal break-up album, 1974's Blood on the Tracks, that the concert really catches fire. His touching take on Simple Twist of Fate signals – perhaps a little belatedly – that Bob has brought his A-game, though it's what happens next that's truly exciting. High Water (For Charley Patton), perhaps the key track on Love and Theft, is simply breathtaking – approaching the classic live version on Tell No Tales. It's punchy, despairing and comical in turn, like a monochrome Depression-era disaster movie, its diverse vignettes playing out as the flood levels rise. It comes complete Dylan mugging to his band as he implores a boat's passengers to throw their panties overboard.

It's the highlight of the gig, along with the follow-up track, Blind Willie McTell. The version left off 1983's Infidels and finally released eight years later on The Bootleg Series Vol. 3 is a peerlessly atmospheric, dystopian fusion of nostalgia and bitter observation as Dylan wanders the haunts of the old bluesman, imagining plantations on fire as the spectre of slavery tempers the crumbling grandeur and sensory overload of the Deep South. He said the song hadn't turned out as he wanted. It turns out that what he wanted was the simpler blues the song has now evolved (devolved?) into, its chorus of "And I know no-one/Can sing the blues/Like Blind Willie McTell' adapted into the less poetic though admittedly rhyming: "And I'll tell you one thing/Nobody can sing/The blues like/Blind Willie McTell”. It sounds fantastic: regretful, respectful, tender; justifying that howl of delight I let loose as the opening line rang out.

Did anyone else make it?

Hi gang. You may have already gotten the tracks via means either nefarious or morally upstanding, but Play.com has Disc 3 of Tell Tale Signs (the one you could only get with the £120 book) to download. Songs are 70p each, so £8.40 the lot. I got them yesterday, they're great.

Just announced is the next part of the Bootleg series 'The Witmark Demos features 40+ tracks of Dylan between the periods of 1962-64 and is mostly him and guitar or piano, also being released at the same time is the mono collection of his first 7/8 albums (up to John Wesley Harding) apparently for the first time together as they were meant to be heard. you can preorder both now and get exclusive Tee Shirts and posters, though it's not cheap, especially if you're after the Vinyl, which will set you back over $300.

Both are out in October

I thought I'd rustle up another just for comparison.

All the bootleg albums are getting a rerelease at just under £9. The release date is 6th December according to play and hmv. I've been trying to find the 1-3 set in good condition for a while now.

Happy 70th Bob, here's to 70 more (unlikely, mind).



Nice mullet.

Just a heads-up that tickets for eight shows in October are on sale now. Sorry that this is so late (most of the stalls at Manchester have already gone); haven't been on Empire over the weekend. Dates include Glasgow (x2, I think), Manchester, Bournemouth, Nottingham. The support is Mark Knopfler.

Apparently the Supper Club shows are next in line for release in his Bootleg series. They were supposed to be released before The Witmark Demos, but were put back for later release instead. They were filmed in late 93 in NYC, &
were set to air on a televised HBO special, unfortunately Bob pulled the plug on the whole event at the last minute, so they've been sitting in the vaults gathering dust ever since. Hopefully he'll come to his senses & releases it pretty soon.


Anyways here's my current top 20.


Sign On The Cross
Going Going Gone
The House Of The Rising Sun
Cocaine Blues
Simple Twist Of Fate
All Along The Watchtower
Blind Willie McTell
Thunder On The Mountain
High Water (for Charley Patton)
Gotta Serve Somebody
Watching The River Flow
I Shall Be Released
You Aint Goin' Nowhere
Idiot Wind
A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall
Let Me Die In My Footsteps
Someday Baby
Desolation Row (Alternate Take)
Everything Is Broken
Make You Feel My Love

I wasn't expecting the tickets to be cheap, but £60? Before the booking fee? Ridiculous.

This is a belated response, but £60 doesn't strike me as exorbitant.

Just found this clip of Bob singing Oh Sister live. It's great and doesn't have the bit from the record that they left in where the violin screeches horribly: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZFg_Njws_k

I wonder if it's from that weird four-hour movie Bob made in the mid-'70s. I've never seen it, so I'm not sure.

If you want to hear someone massacre Dylan songs I'll do it for a lot less than £60!

Tempest, Bob's 35th studio album, will be here on September 11th (11 years after "Love and Theft" was released on 9/11. Coincidence? Yes, probably). Tracklist is as follows:

Duquesne Whistle
Soon After Midnight
Narrow Way
Long and Wasted Years
Pay In Blood
Scarlet Town
Early Roman Kings
Tin Angel
Tempest
Roll On John

Horray.


Dylan still doesn't know how to do cover art, eh?
