I bought this, this week...



Great alternate takes, etc. A worthy successor to the original box set.

However, it became unmistakeable to me whilst listening, that one of the most hyped tracks `Red River Shore` has a melody almost entirely ripped off another BD song, `When The Night Comes Falling From The Sky` (available on Bootleg #3) - which is a song that kicks serious emotional ass.
I know a lot of Bobs songs borrow melodies from all over the shop, but i`ve heard so much about the Red River song, was surprised no one had mentioned it.

Anyway, i`ve only had time to listen to disc 1 so far (several times). My early fave is the first track, Mississippi, a terrific slow burning version rivalling Blind Willie McTell.

My father took me to my first Dylan concert at the tender age of five at Kiel Opera House, St. Louis Missouri in March 1966. It was his first tour in America since his controversial appearance at the Newport Folk Festival in 1965. He had members of the future Band backing him, except for Levon Helm who sat out the tour because he didn't like Dylan's music at the time.

I have nearly every one of Dylan's studio releases, all of the Dylan bootleg series plus bootleg tapes of his first Carnagie Hall concert in 1963 and an limited edition cd of Bob Dylan playing the Gaslight Cafe in 1962. It's the earliest known recording of Dylan. I have quite a few of his albums uploaded at Last FM and you can listen to them by hitting the Towering Inferno link in my sig.

This thread urged me to listen to some Dylan. A friend of mine gave me copies of the bulk of his material including the bootlegs. The overall opinion of his '80s material seems pretty bad. I think I'll get around to it once I familiarize myself with what I have. I really love Blonde on Blonde, Blood on the Tracks, and Time Out of Mind.

When it comes to storytelling, there is no better than Bob Dylan...

except for maybe Johnny Cash or Slick Rick.

how could you not include 'the man in me' in your fav songs from the New Mourning LP. It's only like the greatest Dylan song ever, well that and 'tonight I'll be staying here with you'.

Ethan, I'm a little surprised you managed to discuss Infidels without mentioning Jokerman. Not cool, bro.

Anyway, I can't blame you for stopping since Down in the Groove is next. Though, mercifully, it's only like 32 or 33 minutes.

Bad News For Bing Crosby.

This just in... Dylan is planning on recording an album of Christmas songs including "Here Comes Santa Claus" and the carol "O Little Town of Bethlehem," two songs popularized by Crosby.

Rumors of the album first emerged on Isis magazine website, which is devoted to Dylan. It later reported the songs had been recorded in Jackson Browne's studio in Santa Monica, California, in May.

David Hidalgo of Los Lobos, who played accordion on Dylan's chart-topping latest album "Together Through Life," is one of the musicians who took part in the sessions, it said.

"It is a personal project of Dylan himself rather than an idea put forward by his record company," Isis said.

Other songs included "Must Be Santa" and "I'll be Home for Christmas," it said.

I've seen Dylan say elsewhere that the X-mas disc was his label's idea ... so who knows? however I do enjoy the results. I abused a thanksgiving gathering with the record and then annoyed my mother with it on Xmas eve, all the while honestly diggin on the sounds and interpretations. And the video for "Must Be Santa" is zany and amusing

I'm a newbie here, but wanted to say I enjoyed this thread. I find I want to revisit Bob Dylan's albums. Thanks.
