"Blood On The Tracks" - 12" stereo test pressing, Columbia/Legacy 19075931221 (USA), 13 Apr 2019; Columbia/Legacy/Sony Music 19075931221 (Europe), 13 Apr 2019:


Columbia/Legacy 19075931221 (USA) - front scan by Colin Hindson

Thanks to Fred Muller and Bob Meyer for news that the 1974 Blood On The Tracks test pressing will be released on vinyl on Record Store Day, 13 Apr 2019. This will be an exact reproduction of the 1974 disc with the original mixes (not included on the Deluxe Edition of The Bootleg Series Vol. 14 - More Blood, More Tracks in 2018, almost certainly deliberately) and be limited to 7500 copies worldwide. This will be the first time that the award-winning liner notes by Pete Hamill will actually describe the takes that are on the album! Like previous Record Store Day vinyl records, these records were all apparently made in the EU, even those of the USA release. The records were pressed at MPO International, Averton, France, and the US records also have the "MPO" logo in the vinyl, even though the US labels do not say "Made in the EU".

Columbia/Legacy/Sony Music 19075931221 (Europe) - Side 2 scan by Hermann Rechberger (includes R-0116 and R-0119)

My European copy has handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - 19-0007-NL 19075931221 A, Side 2 - 19-0007-NL 19075931221 B, plus what looks like "K-1" and "SST" handwritten on the opposite side of the record to the matrix numbers. The "NL" in the matrix numbers refers to Noiseland Industries, Minneapolis, MN, and "K-", "SST" is engineer Daniel Krieger at Schallplatten Schneid Technik [Record Cutting Technology], Frankfurt, Germany, so both these companies were involved in the manufacture of the record. Gerd Rundel's test pressing (of a test pressing!) was made by Noiseland in the USA for MPO in France, and is housed in an MPO generic sleeve (French and Spanish text on the front, English and German text on the back) with handwritten text on the front and date "2-15-19" (15 Feb 2019). The record has MPO test pressing labels with a Noiseland sticker on Side 1 only. It has stamped MPO matrix numbers which are quite different from the final release matrix numbers: Side 1 - MPO 19 105101, Side 2 - MPO 19 101834.

R-0120-2 Tangled Up In Blue - unreleased take with different lyrics, originally identified as Take 1, 19 Sep 1974 - the take that appears on The Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3 is Take 1 from 16 Sep 1974
Now identified correctly as Take 3, Remake 2 from 19 Sep 1974

R-0117-2 You're A Big Girl Now - alternate take (a remixed version of this take appears on Biograph), Take 2 Remake, 17 Sep 1974

R-0118-2 Idiot Wind - unreleased take with different lyrics, now identified as Take 4, Remake, 19 Sep 1974, overdubbed on 8 Oct 1974 - the take that appears on The Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3 was previously identified as this one, but that take is actually Take 6 from 16 Sep 1974

R-0116-3 Lily, Rosemary & The Jack Of Hearts - unreleased take with extra verse, Take 2, recorded A&R Studios, New York, 16 Sep 1974, now included on the single CD release of The Bootleg Series Vol. 14 - More Blood, More Tracks, but in a considerably remixed form

R-0119-3 If You See Her, Say Hello - unreleased take with different lyrics, Take 1, recorded A&R Studios, New York, 19 Sep 1974

The sleeve occurs in two slightly different colours as shown, one marginally darker than the other.

Thanks to Fred Muller, Bob Meyer, Hermann Rechberger, Hank Wellman, Éamonn Ó Catháin and Colin Hindson for information and scans.

Thanks to Hermann Rechberger, Jack from Canada and Tim Dunn for news of a 14CD set called The Rolling Thunder Revue: The 1975 Live Recordings to be released by Sony Music on 7 Jun 2019. It is reported to be limited to 3000 copies and Amazon are offering it for sale at $109.98 (US) £59.99 (UK). This will be released in conjunction with Martin Scorsese's documentary Rolling Thunder Revue - A Bob Dylan Story By Martin Scorsese, which contains a great deal of performance footage plus an exclusive interview with Bob by Jeff Rosen, and will be available on Netflix about the same time. As this is a Limited Edition (even though it's listed on the bobdylan.com Albums Page), all previously unreleased tracks are rarities and have now been allocated R-numbers. For details of the documentary film see VHS & DVD 2010s.

Thanks to Colin Hindson for news that bobdylan.com are offering an "Ultimate Bundle" Limited Edition of 1500 copies of the 14CD set The Rolling Thunder Revue: The 1975 Live Recordings that includes a 12" x 18" film poster for the Netflix film Rolling Thunder Revue - A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese (as shown on the right) and a replica of a luggage tag that was produced in extremely limited quantities in 1975 and given only to members of the revue so that they could be easily identified by the crew on tour.

I understand there was a ten track promo sampler. More details required!

The bottom of the box is plain red except for the Columbia/Legacy logos and the catalogue number. The box includes a 56-page booklet with notes by Wesley Stace and many previously unseen photos by Ken Regan in the booklet and on the CD sleeves. The CDs come in card sleeves, Discs 1 to 3 and 14 come in single sleeves, Discs 4 to 13 comprise five complete shows and come in gatefold card sleeves each holding two discs.

All the 14 European CDs have copyright text along the bottom edge with catalogue numbers "19075928282-1" to "19075928282-14", although it is sometimes hard to read. Discs 4 to 14 have a completely different design from Discs 1 to 3 and also have a catalogue number "19075928282D4" to "19075928282D14" to the right of the centre hole.

Stuart Moore's copy bought in Australia has the same front sticker as mine and was presumably imported.

Thanks to Sonny Boy McFitzson for information that the set will be available in Japan on 7 Jun 2019 with an imported box as shown above and discs made in Japan with catalogue numbers SICP 6101 to 6114. The price will be ¥15,000 plus tax (¥16,200). The 2002 Classic Records 3LP vinyl edition of The Bootleg Series Vol. 5: Live 1975 - The Rolling Thunder Revue will also be imported into Japan with a 64-page Japanese language booklet.

The Japanese release comes in a clear polythene bag, but the box, the card sleeves and the discs are made in the EU, not the USA. Inside the sealed box the contents on the rear are placed from outside to inside: Japanese rear card Japanese booklet →EU rear card with removable glue → box. The Japanese booklet contains translation of Wesley Stace's liner notes plus a summary of 1975 by Heckel Sugano and song by song commentaries by Kenta Hagiwara, March 2019. The English & Japanese lyrics are the officially registered ones (as expected), so no lyrics variations and no Bob talks are printed.

There will also be a reissue of the 2003 Classic Records 3LP vinyl edition of The Bootleg Series Vol. 5: Live 1975 - The Rolling Thunder Revue. Thanks to Éamonn Ó Catháin for information that this 3LP set was reissued on vinyl in Europe on 7 Jun 2019. The set now comes in a slipcase instead of a box, with a booklet, but without the handbills, posters and tickets, or indeed the 7" single. The front of the slipcase is now the same as the 2002 CD releases, while the booklet front has the same design as the 2003 box front. Several sources say this set has been completely remixed/remastered, newly compiled from the same tracks on the 2019 14CD set The Rolling Thunder Revue: The 1975 Live Recordings (digital instead of analogue). However, the included download card (which seems to be in US copies only) points to the digital versions of the 2002 set!

Sony Music 19075991162 (NL) - front of digipak (my copy)


Sony Music 19075991162 (NL) - rear of digipak

This 2CD compilation of Dylan Top 40 singles from Holland was compiled using the Dutch Top 40 chart positions. This is why tracks such as Wigwam (which was Bob's biggest hit in Holland) are included.

CD2: Knockin' On Heaven's Door; George Jackson (Acoustic Version); Watching The River Flow; Forever Young (Slow Version); Shelter From The Storm; Tangled Up In Blue; Simple Twist Of Fate; Hurricane (Part I); One More Cup Of Coffee; Changing Of The Guard (Single Version); Gotta Serve Somebody; Jokerman; Make You Feel My Love; Not Dark Yet (Single Version)*; Things Have Changed; Most Likely You Go Your Way (And I'll Go Mine) (Mark Ronson Remix); Duquesne Whistle; Melancholy Mood.

*As far as I know, exclusive to this compilation!

R-0085-7   George Jackson - Acoustic version, B-side of 1971 Columbia single (see 1971), lyrics on bobdylan.com here
Also available on the 1974 Japanese limited release LP Mr D's Collection #1 (see 1974), and the 1993 Japanese limited release CD Mr D's Collection #3 (see 1993). This version was not released on commercial CD until it was included on a bonus disc with the Dutch release of The Essential Bob Dylan (see 2003), and then on the Light In The Attic US release
Listen, Whitey! The Sounds Of Black Power 1967-74 (see 2012), and on the 2013 2CD set Side Tracks, included with The Complete Album Collection Vol. One (see 2013).

R-0126-11 Hurricane (Part I) (Bob Dylan/Jacques Levy) : A-side of single (3:45), swear-word not bleeped (stereo version), see Hurricane 7" singles 1975-76 for full details

R-0147-6   Changing Of The Guards - radio edit, 3:39
For details of the original single releases with album track New Pony as the B-side, see 1978. Also see the UK 2LP set 70s above.

R-2127      Not Dark Yet - single edit (4:28) of album version from Time Out of Mind (6:30)
This edit
misses out the instrumental break between verses three and four and the instrumental ending after verse four. All the four verses are present. As far as I can tell it’s unique to this compilation, but it must date from 1997. Maybe it was intended as a single release which never happened.

Thanks to Arie de Reus for reminding me of this 1997 promo CD from Sony Music Germany that contained edited versions of all tracks from Time Out Of Mind. However, the edit of Not Dark Yet at 2:26 is much shorter than R-2127.
