36 Songs, 2 Hours 25 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

This exhaustive volume of previously unheard Bob Dylan outtakes, rehearsals, song sketches, and alternates of hits chronicles The Bard during his most prolific years—the mid-’60s sessions that gave us Bringing It All Back Home, Highway 61 Revisited, and Blonde on Blonde. Revelatory, sometimes raw variants of songs like “Like a Rolling Stone” (this set includes the entire 20-take session) and “Just Like a Woman” show how Dylan could masterfully alter a lyrical sentiment, and even its meaning, with simple vocal, and sometimes musical, shifts in phrasing and tone.

“I might look like Robert Frost!"

..”But I feel like Jesse James!”=“The Cutting Edge” attempts to re-capture that “High, Wild Mercury Sound” that the Minnesota Mastermind himself could only hear and try to lay it all down with a healthy dose of dirty Chicago Blues and Cerebrally Caustic lyricism borrowing freely from Ginsberg, Kerouac, Poe & Shakespeare!-{Obsessive/Compulsive Bobcats Only?}-Well; “Bringing It All Back Home”; “Highway 61 Revisited” and “Blonde On Blonde” remain Bob Dylan’s zenith; On the most high Critic’s List of all time and Just; You can’t call yourself a true Rock Music Fan without thoroughly digesting this trio of dynamite Albums! (Remember Jack Black’s crazed Record Store guy in “High Fidelity”?)-So, Dig This; In part or in full and ask yourself: “Is It Rolling, Bob?”…by Grimmbo.

Best for non-scholars

... Than the complete 111-track version. Would have made an outstanding double-album fresh release in 1966, and holds up very well a half- century later. Highly listenable, and recaptures the genius of Bob Dylan at one of the many peaks of his career, maybe the greatest time of them all. (It also really makes me yearn to remember the name of the girl in Pocatello with the white MGA convertible, listening to Blonde On Blonde together in the hills above town.)
