Correction (reason => yawn.)Me.
Wil play it on a Kenwood Stereo Casette Deck KX-5300.
I bought Blood on the Tracks, along with several other Dylan CDs, about six months ago at Newbury Comics (gasp - a record store!). I would think that they're still being produced by Columbia.I just ordered "Blood on the Tracks" by Dylan through Amazon. What's the deal? Is Columbia Records not pressing the CD any longer? (I mean, it is perhaps Dylan's best studio album). New discs are only available as import CDs.
If you have Bringing it All Back Home, Highway 61 Revisited, and Blonde on Blonde; along with The Bootleg Series Vol. IV, you've pretty much caught a revolution in a can.Of Dylan's early recordings, one of my favorites is... Bring It All Back Home. It has that Mercury/metalic sound Dylan said he loved when he was at his best... yeah, "Subterranean Homesick Blues"... "Maggie's Farm".... The album is like an infusion of adrenaline, with some great acoustic performances. It lifts you up.
Desire is great, although "Joey" has to be one of his more annoying tracks. Somewhere in my collection of Dylan recordings is mention of the tune or tunes left off Desire in favor of Joey. Good god, those tunes are so much better.What the hell is this "record store" oddity you speak of, Stickpin? Just ordered "Desire" and "Nashville Skyline" from Amazon ...
I'm the biggest Dylan Fan your going to meet but i have to agree with you here. i have those alternative Desire recordings on C.D somewhere. anyone of those tracks would have been better. The only explanation i can give as to why Dylan left it on was to give the record extra play time. Saying that Dylan is infamous for inexplicably leaving tracks off records. case in point " Blind Willie McTell " . one of Dylan's greatest songs that didn't appear on an album until '91's bootleg series.Desire is great, although "Joey" has to be one of his more annoying tracks. Somewhere in my collection of Dylan recordings is mention of the tune or tunes left off Desire in favor of Joey. Good god, those tunes are so much better.
Dylan has been a staple for me since I heard a friends older sister playing it in around '65. he had very few weak songs through out the years, though you had to be a hard core fan to follow him thru all the changes in style. Dylan is just Dylan. but your'e right Joey was just bad, and in my opinion Hurricane was right there with it. I saw him live a couple of times and those were a couple of the worst concerts I have ever been to. both times he acted totaly dis-interested. bored. the second time he wore this huge cowboy hat and never once even looked up so you could see a face,. hell, I'm not even sure it was dylan! My x-wife and I used "forever young" as our wedding song, when he played it that night she didn't even reconize it. so much for touching moments. but still it was great just to see "the Dylan" and I'm glad that I was there. but yeah "joey and Hurricane are the worst!Desire although "Joey" has to be one of his more annoying tracks.
Gotta serve somebody is Dylan's 2nd greatest religious song after " every Grain of sand. In my opinion anyway. i have to respectfully disagree with the people who are bad mouthing "Hurricane". In the song Dylan shows his great story telling skills and the electric violin is nothing short brilliance. "Hurricane" is far from Dylan's greatest song but it is far from terrible. and please don't start a list of Dylan songs you hate it will break my Dylan worshiping heart.I beg to differ. You Gotta Serve Somebody is the worst.
Great song. Available on the wonderful 3 disc Biograph set if you don't want to buy a Christian Rock album to hear it.I believe in You
A terrible song and terrible advice....I just think You Gotta Serve Somebody was a terrible song.
Far superior by a nose, huh? ;)I know this is heresy but, for my money (since I've thoroughly re-examined both albums over the last week) "Desire" is a far superior album to "Blood on the Tracks", though only by a nose, "Joey" notwithstanding.
