Product Description

Product Description

Mobile Fidelity Numbered Limited Edition Hybrid CD/SACD. Mastered from the Original Master Tapes. Heartbreaking 1974 masterpiece.


Inevitably, when critics praise a new Dylan album, they label it the "best since Blood on the Tracks," and with good reason. Inspired by a crumbled marriage, and recorded after a tour with The Band had apparently re-ignited his creativity, Blood is among Dylan's masterpieces. The album's epic songs are well known, but its real high points are the shorter numbers--"You're a Big Girl Now," the flawless blues "Meet Me in the Morning," and the sweetly devastating "Buckets of Rain." These are songs of "images and distorted facts," each expressed through tangled points of view, and all of them blue. --David Cantwell --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

It has been thirty years since "Blood on the Tracks" was released and of all of the albums recorded by Bob Dylan it is the one that has most increased in stature simply because every album produced since then has failed to rise to this level. I think the reason for this is mainly because it was born in a creative burst of pointed lyricisim as his marriage to Sara Lowndes collapsed, with all the songs written in two months in the middle of 1974. I would no more expect any personal turmoil to provide similar inspiration any more than I would have expected any of the songs on this album to rise to the level of social rhetoric found in his greatest songs of the Sixties.
In "Blood on the Tracks" Dylan also turned his back on his greatest backing band, returning to his artistic routes on an album that is largely acoustic-based. The songs run the emotional gamut from sorrow and regret to bitterness and pain. At the same time, despite the obvious point of origin for most of these songs, this is not an openly confessional album (cf. Courtney Love's "America's Sweetheart"). After all, we are talking the lyrics of Bob Dylan, which means cryptic riddles and allegories abound all laid out in ten classic tracks:
"Tangled Up in Blue" is the best song on the album and the ambguity about the characters and relationships Dylan sings about has only increased over the years with the shifting lyrics in various performances. The cover version by the Indigo Girls remains my favorite Dylan cover.
"Simple Twist of Fate" is another great four-word phrase in a song that represents the most overtly personal song on the album. The stark instrumentation only serves to highlight the heartbreak of the existentialist lyrics and the mournful sound of the vocals.

This is Dylan's most talked-about LP from his post 1960s career, and while initially the critics were unsure about it, BLOOD ON THE TRACKS rapidly became perceived as one of the most impressive albums Dylan has cut. The song-writing is strong and assured, and Dylan is as cryptic as ever. Yet there also seems to be a central theme here: broken relationships. When asked about this album's reception, Dylan said he never truly understood why people enjoy that kind of pain.

Anyone familiar with art know that some of the best art in the world comes from pain. Bob Dylan's music from 1969 to 1974 was very much characterised by a sort of domesticity which was the central undercurrent to most of his music, being characterized by his familia lifestyle. While the music found on these albums (NASHVILLE, SELF-PORTRAIT to some extent, NEW MORNING, and PLANET WAVES) are sometimes exciting (especially NASHVILLE, the best of the lot), generally they never quite rise to the level of the artistically impeccable.

While the domesticity was heartfelt and sincere, it seems Dylan was too content with his life to put a lot into his art. There was no central drive like there was in the early days, when Dylan wanted to be the next Woody Guthrie, and then the more poetic direction of the mid 1960s, and then a more mellow country direction. Dylan was too interested in pursuing this path to make us care about the music found on NEW MORNING, etc. Now, however, he must channel that pain through into his art so he can deal with it. There's a real passion here that's lacking in the other albums of this period. This is the culmination of his mellow period, driving Dylan to an artistic catharsis because of a new ingredient in the mix of domestic bliss: pain.

The owner of a local CD store recently told me that the 15 - 25 year old demographic is re-discovering 1970s music in a big way. He says that 1970s artists like Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd are outselling all contemporary bands among this age group.

Interesting, if it's true. And judging by the number of teen and 20 somethings I see sporting T-shirts of 1970s bands, I'm inclined to think it has some validity.

For anyone exploring 1970s music, or discovering (re-discovering?) Bob Dylan, this is an essential album.

It's Dylan's best 1970s album as well as being one of the best albums of that decade. It's also one of the best albums of Dylan's lengthy, productive career.

Bottom line: this CD should be in any collection of 1970s music.

Fans of Bob Dylan can be extremely passionate about their favourite albums and performances and with this great artist it is extremely difficult to decide which of his great works is indeed his "best". It usually comes down to Blonde on Blonde, Highway 61 Revisited or this one. Highway 61 and Blonde on Blonde were released back to back in '65/'66, a time when Bob was definitely on a roll. Blood on The Tracks came 8 years later and is quite different from the other two in some significant ways. First off, the stuff from '65/'66 was mostly electric, experimental and enigmatic in a lot of ways. Whereas Blood On The Tracks is beautifully acoustic, traditional and straight forward in its subject matter. This is an album about relationships and it drips with a passion you won't hear anywhere else (Idiot Wind, If You See Her, Say Hello). You can hear these songs a hundred times and, as with all great poetry, each listen will bring different rewards and discoveries. The acoustic music on this album is simply beautiful. Bottom line? All three albums are sublime, but this one is different from the other two. IMHO the best one...ever!
