Bob Dylan - "More Blood, More Tracks" Out Nov. 2

Via Legacy Recordings:  Columbia Records and Legacy Recordings, the  catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, will release "Bob Dylan – More Blood, More Tracks – The Bootleg Series Vol. 14" on Friday, November 2. The latest chapter in Columbia/Legacy’s Bob Dylan Bootleg Series makes available the pivotal studio recordings made by Bob Dylan during six extraordinary sessions in 1974 - four in New York (September 16, 17, 18, 19) and two in Minneapolis (December 27, 30) – that resulted in the artist’s 1975 masterpiece, "Blood On The Tracks."  

One of the top-selling albums of Dylan’s career, "Blood On The Tracks" redefined the boundaries and structures of modern pop songwriting (a genre Dylan had virtually invented a decade prior), reached #1 on the Billboard 200, achieved RIAA 2x Platinum status and was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 2015. "Blood On The Tracks" was originally recorded during four days in New York City in September, 1974.  Soon thereafter, the album was mastered and review copies began to circulate. A few months later, Dylan felt the album needed a different approach and rerecorded five of the tracks at Minneapolis Sound 80 Studios beginning in late December of that year. 

While a few of the outtakes from the original New York sessions have been highly prized by bootleggers and collectors, most of these recordings have never been available in any format. The single disc / 2LP configuration of "More Blood, More Tracks" assembles 10 of the most emotionally resonant alternate takes of each of the 10 songs appearing the original album plus a previously unreleased version of “Up to Me.” 

The 6 CD full-length deluxe version of Bob Dylan – "More Blood, More Tracks – The Bootleg Series Vol. 14" includes the complete New York sessions in chronological order including outtakes, false starts and studio banter. The album’s producers have worked from best sources available, in most cases utilizing the original multi-track session tapes.

In his liner notes for "More Blood, More Tracks," Jeff Slate observes that, “Dylan cut each of these amazing performances – some of the best he ever committed to tape – one after the other, live in the studio, without headphones, and without the types of overdubs that most performers rely on to make their records sound finished. Instead, on these tracks, we find Dylan – just a singer with a guitar and a harmonica and a batch of great songs – delivering performances that thrill you when they’re supposed to and break your heart when they need to….
