The upcoming Bootleg Series More Blood, More Tracks is set for release on November 2, whose recordings will afford a clearer picture of the genesis of Bob Dylan's classic 1975 album, Blood on the Tracks which was recorded over six days in New York City and Minneapolis.
According to Rolling Stone, the 'vast majority' of takes on More Blood, More Tracks have never been heard prior to this release. The new release includes solo, acoustic renditions of Tangled Up In Blue, Simple Twist of Fate and If You See Her, Say Hello.
Also featured is a previously unknown cover of the standard, Spanish Is the Loving Tongue with myriad takes of Idiot Wind and You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go.
Dylan recorded the Blood on the Tracks album over four days in September 1974 at A&R Studios in New York with producer Phil Ramone. However, he re-recorded five of the songs at Sound 80 Studio in Minneapolis 12 weeks later and there is a belief that he intended re-recording Blood on the Tracks as a solo acoustic album.
Meanwhile, Dylan has scheduled a week-long residency at New York’s Beacon Theatre beginning November 23 and running through December 1. The U.S. leg of his current tour begins October 9 in Midland, Texas.
