Bob Dylan – Tell Tale Signs: BONUS DISC 3 of The Bootleg Series Volume 8

Bob Dylan – Bonus Disc 3 from Tell Tale Signs The Bootleg Series Vol. 8
BONUS DISC 3
Release: 07 Oct 2008
Classic Rock
Mp3 /
M4a / FLAC (torrent link)

Here it is .. the elusive Disc 3 from the Box Set version of this release … yap, the box set which costs about 900 bucks!

A fine collection of live tracks it is too!

Wonderful, in fact!

We already posted the original 2-Disc version HERE!

Tell Tale Signs is a very fine collection of 27 tracks; rare and unreleased Dylan material from the period 1989 to 2006 – a very fruitful period when the muse returned to Bob as strongly as ever, reaching an apotheosis in terms of magnificence with the sublime Modern Times (2006)!

The quality of the tracks here is consistently high and, amazingly, some of the stuff here is as good as, if not better, than, material included in the fine Dylan albums released over that period of 17 years!

However, as true Dylan fans, we are a tad fucking disappointed in Sony’s decision to release a box set – which contains the normal double CD with an extra disc of 12 live tracks plus a single – at the disgusting price of $130! That’s five times the cost of the double CD!

So the Dylan fan is forced to pay pay another 100 bucks for the extra few tracks! These record companies never learn! Trying to screw the true music fan, as usual! Assholes!

I’m not gonna pay $130! Nobody should pay that! The days when record companies could fuck over the true music fan, are long over!

So … ahem (after calming down! ) … if someone could please send us a 320kbps link for Disc 3, we’d be rather fucking happy!

CATCH DISC 3 HERE in a different format!


We already posted a good review from the excellent UNCUT Magazine.

Here’s another from the Observer;

Which Bob Dylan is it that will turn up this time? Last year’s film, I’m Not There, directed by Todd Haynes, presented seven incarnations of the singer – the young Dylan who wanted to be Woody Guthrie (played by a child), the born-again Dylan, the Dylan who played that thin wild mercury music (played by Cate Blanchett) and so on – but in the course of the past half decade, he has revealed himself to us in a further multiplicity of ways. There’s Dylan the TV ad star, Dylan the radio host, Dylan the painter, Dylan the author – and of course Dylan the never-ending touring artist. Can these different figures be reconciled by thinking of Dylan as Dylan the entertainment franchise? Because the 67-year-old’s commercial stock is higher now than at any other point in at least the past 30 years. It’s a view that encompasses, too, the vociferous complaints on a website near you now concerning this latest instalment of the Bootleg Series: two discs (the only two available to this reviewer) are priced quite normally, but there is also a box set containing a third CD being hawked for something like £101. It’s bread-head Bob.

Set against this, who is the Bob Dylan known to us through his songs in the period so welcomely covered with these releases? Tell Tale Signs brings together rare and unreleased material from between 1989 and 2006. That period ought to encompass sessions for seven albums – Oh Mercy (1989), Under the Red Sky (1990), the two records he made of covers of old folk songs, Good As I Been to You (1992) and World Gone Wrong (1993), Time Out of Mind (1997), ‘Love and Theft’ (2001) and Modern Times (2006). But Under the Red Sky and ‘Love and Theft’ are essentially edited from the picture – and what do you mean it’s not like him to be so slippery? – leaving outtakes from three albums of original material. Considered as a trilogy, those records leave a singular vision of the artist: here is the ‘Man in the Long Black Cloak’, muttering something about it being not dark yet, but it’s getting there, always on the periphery of your vision.

How does this treasure trove make us reconsider that Dylan? Among 27 tracks there is room for two versions of ‘Mississippi’ from the Time Out of Mind sessions with producer Daniel Lanois – and the first in particular is wondrous: performed acoustically, it features Dylan singing beautifully, beguilingly, pursuing the key sentiment: ‘But my heart is not weary, it’s light and it’s free.’ And you understand why it didn’t make the cut on the album (but did surface reconceived on ‘Love And Theft’). Likewise, ‘Red River Shore’, among Dylanologists, the most eagerly awaited song on Tell Tale Signs. The narrative unrolls over almost fully seven minutes, and touches delightfully, mysteriously, on matters theological (‘I heard of a guy who lived a long time ago… that if someone around him died and was dead he knew how to bring ’em on back to life’); and at the end, Dylan the great storyteller finds a note of optimism: ‘sometimes I think no one ever saw me here at all/ except the girl from the red river shore’.

So guess what? Not all is what it seems, with Dylan himself wont to quote another poet: ‘I is another’. But unknowable as he may be, he remains untouchable as a songwriter and at times performer. Not everything is perfect here, the five live cuts, in particular, not particularly inspired choices. But you could lose yourself in these recordings.

4 out of 5 ….. by Caspar Llewellyn Smith; The Observer

More reviews here:

Tell Tale Signs seems to be hitting the right notes with some of rock’s most distinguished journalists:

Rolling Stone’s Mikal Gilmore {complete review}:

…Tell Tale Signs is less an anthology than an album in its own right. It seems designed to tell a story that sharpens and expands the vista of mortal and cultural disintegration that has been the chief theme of 1997’s Time Out of Mind, 2001’s Love and Theft, and 2006’s Modern Times – perhaps the most daring music he’s ever made. Tell Tale Signs makes plain that Dylan knows the caprices of the world he lives in, now more than ever.

Los Angeles Times’ Robert Hilburn {complete review}

Bob Dylan’s latest collection of material from his musical back pages, “Tell Tale Signs: The Bootleg Series Vol. 8,” is a rich, revealing look at how this master songwriter put together one of the most dramatic creative renaissances in pop history….”Tell Tale Signs” is not just “extra” Dylan. It’s essential Dylan.

Entertainment Weekly’s Chris Willman {complete review}

Only one set of archival releases can compare to Bob Dylan’s ”Bootleg Series” in the annals of popular music, and that would be the Beatles’ Anthology collections, which similarly gave the world a window onto a great recording act’s studio outtakes. But with the Fab Four, you always get the feeling that there was only one possible perfect version of each song; the fascination lies in hearing how certain numbers become classics due to some final, transcendent tweak. Listening to Dylan’s discards, though, there’s little sense of honing or averted near misses; his cuttingroom-floor takes are usually completely viable alternatives to the official renditions….The last two ”Bootleg” releases focused on Dylan’s mid-’60s heyday…but true fans already had a lot of it. (Shhh, don’t tell the feds.) Excitingly, Tell Tale Signs jumps decades ahead to offer an alternate history of a less leaky period: the creative renaissance that started at the end of the 1980s and has been bearing fruit ever since.

The Independent’s Andy Gill {complete review}:

The eighth instalment of Dylan’s Bootleg Series covers the years spanning his 1989 return to form with Oh Mercy up to the present day, a period in which he managed to conquer a long-standing blight of writer’s block, establish himself as the pre-eminent repository of American roots-music forms, and ultimately find the route to the Indian summer of Time Out of Mind, “Love and Theft” and Modern Times….It’s a remarkable collection…

The Telegraph’s David Cheal {complete review}:

There’s stuff here that leaves the listener wondering: why have we never heard this before? What possessed him, for instance, to excise Red River Shore from his Time Out of Mind album? It’s a haunting classic. Ditto the wistful Born in Time (from the Oh Mercy sessions)…what’s captured here is the restless, questing creative spirit of the man. He never stops.

The BBC’s Chris Jones {complete review}:

If you love the trilogy of Time Out Of Mind, Love And Theft and Modern Times you’re going to adore this. It lays bare the process that led Dylan to not only revisit the work that got him fired up in the first place but remake them in his own image: the Carter Family (Tell Ol’ Bill) amongst many others…As a companion to his best work from the period this is essential. It even stands as a fine album on its own—the work of a man obviously in love with his muse once more, and totally unafraid of fessin’ up to his roots. Beautiful, brave and beguiling.

The Guardian’s Dave Simpson {complete review}:

The eighth treasure trove in Dylan’s Bootleg Series of unreleased material and alternate takes further illustrates that there is no such thing as a definitive recording of a Dylan song, just a snapshot of the great man’s prevailing mood…reaffirms Dylan’s return to classic form. The extraordinary Red River Shore—already prompting feverish excitement among Bobcats—sounds like the produce of a broken heart, and has mystifyingly remained in the vaults for 11 years…Four Stars.

Bob Dylan Live 1975 (The Bootleg Series Volume 5)

Bob Dylan Live 1975 (The Bootleg Series Volume 5)

Mp3 / @320 / RS

The Bootleg Series, Vol. 5: Bob Dylan Live 1975 was the third instalment in Columbia/ Legacy’s excavation of the exhaustive Bob Dylan vaults (the first was a box set, containing three volumes).

This is basically a compilation of highlights from his legendary Rolling Thunder Revue of 1975 and offers a massive two discs and 22 tracks from this fabled tour.

The Rolling Thunder tour commenced in late 1975, after much of the sessions for Desire had taken place. During the course of the tour, which received heavy media coverage, Dylan and his band unveiled songs from Desire in addition to reinterpreting past works.

During this tour, Dylan apparently took a particular liking to white flour (at least I think it’s white flour!) and tended to plaster his face with the stuff before each gig!

https://i1.wp.com/www.new-pony.com/clothesline/70s/75rolling.jpg

The Rolling Thunder Revue was also augmented by guest musicians such as Mick Ronson (best known for his work with David Bowie) and other artists such as Roger McGuinn, Joni Mitchell, and Joan Baez who not only contributed during Dylan’s set, but also played complete sets of their own.

Interestingly, Bruce Springsteen was invited to perform, but declined when Dylan informed him that he could not use the E Street Band to back him.

The concerts were very well-received and are often regarded as one of Dylan’s finest series of shows. It is the first leg of the tour is documented on this album.

This is a superlative set, which offers the first official release of Rolling Thunder material. This was arguably Dylan at his very best.

https://i1.wp.com/www.2idiotsinaboat.com/pilgrim/media/Desire.jpgThe tour commenced between the release of what Dylan aficionados, or me at least, consider to be amongst his two greatest albums i.e. the pain-sodden majestic Blood on the Tracks, and the redemptive classic Desire.

Both of these magnificent pieces of modern music are of course already posted here – as well as the BOTT Sessions and Before the Flood etc – Loadsa Dylan

The personal context, in short, around these works is that the former dissects the emotional heartbreak associated with the failure of Dylan’s marriage to Sara, while the latter is essentially a plea for forgiveness and reconciliation.

The very special song Sarafrom Desire, a haunting hymnal to pure love, is included here in a great version, that contains some different and even stronger lyrics than would appear on the album itself e.g.

Sleeping in the woods

By a fire in the night

Where you fought for my soul

And went up against the odds.

I was too young to know

You were doing it right

And you did it with strength

That belonged to the gods.

Sara, Sara,

Wherever we travel, we’re never apart.

Sara, oh Sara,

Beautiful lady, so dear to my heart.

During the tour, Dylan seemed to be in a happier place and Sara actually accompanied the tour for a significant number of dates.

Also at this time, Dylan embarked on his rarely seen and very strange film project “Renaldo and Clara”, a largely improvisational piece which actually “starred” Sara as the Clara character and Bob as “Renaldo” (it also included a very nervous Joan Baez – who was a key figure in the tour itself too – who, as legend has it, had been a Dylan paramour and one of the main reasons for the collapse of his marriage!)

Although this tour had been heavily bootlegged over the decades, and had been documented to a certain extent in Renaldo and Clara, and although too there had been Hard Rain (a collection culled from the post-Thunder 1976 tour that was a little similar but somewhat sour), there was nothing anywhere near as good as the 1975 material in this superb set.

Hearing this is a revelation, even for serious Dylan afficianados – or me at least! Furthermore, even the most casual Dylan fan will find this set absorbing. It is, quite simply, a tremendous capture of a tremendous tour and a tremendous time in Dylan’s creative life (though not his personal life!).

It has become legend that Dylan will change arrangements and switch lyrics at the drop of a hat.

This trait had been very evident on his earlier tour with the Band in 1974, preserved for posterity on Before the Flood (already posted here Loadsa Dylan).

https://i0.wp.com/991.com/newGallery/Bob-Dylan-Rolling-Thunder-R-322146.jpg Even so, he’s looser, wilder, and more alive in this careening, thrilling album, a record where “A Hard Rain’s a-Gonna Fall” gallops along as if it were “Leopard Skin Pill-Box Hat.”

As that suggests, the wildest things in this package are the electric cuts, where an unwieldy band turns out an overpowering sound that sounds inevitable, as if it’s the only way these songs could be played, even when you’ve heard these songs countless times before in other arrangements.

The acoustic moments don’t contain many of his duets with Joan Baez, yet they’re intimate, passionate versions of the songs.

In summary, there’s not a bad moment here, and the collection amazingly manages to capture the essence of this legendary tour.

This is why it’s a must-have for every music fan!
