Dear Music Appreciators, This "Best of" version is the one I heard first, streaming on NPR, and the 6 disc deluxe edition is the one I bought on Amazon because I couldn't resist the extras more songs, more versions of songs, the hardbound book, etc. But the 2 disc The Best of The Cutting Edge Provides the most accessible, traditional, and easily enjoyable listening experience from beginning to end.
A particular highlight for this reviewer was "Sitting on a Barbed Wire Fence," which I missed the first time it came out Bootleg Series This song rocks.
The guitar work stings and runs you over. Dylan yells. He sings some different lyrics. Words from "Tom Thumb's Blues" make an appearance. And Dylan picks his guitar player over a woman - "She's good alright but she ain't as good as this guitar player I got right now. There may be others with very minor differences of a few seconds as well.
The 2 disc version contains the following number of tracks off each disc of the 6 disc version: - 10 out of the 23 tracks on disc 1 - 8 out of the 19 tracks on disc 2 - 2 out of the 20 tracks on disc 3 - 7 out of the 19 tracks on disc 4 - 4 out of the 15 tracks on disc 5 - 5 out of the 15 tracks on disc 6 How many songs regardless of take or version that appear on the 6 disc set do not appear on the 2 disc set?
Verified Purchase. Beginning in , Bob Dylan had a stunningly prolific, month-long explosion of revolutionary creativity that produced three masterpieces: the folk-rock album "Bringing It All Back Home," the blues-rock album "Highway 61 Revisited," and the sublime fusion of the double album "Blonde on Blonde. For the fiftieth anniversary of this "annus mirabilis" and the twelfth issue in the seemingly endless Bootleg Series, Sony has pulled out all the stops.
It contains every moment of tape, every fragment and misstep and mumble, no matter how trivial or indispensable, and even a few impromptu folk and country duets with Joan Baez in a London hotel room. You'll hear "Subterranean Homesick Blues" with a few fumbled lyrics , "Mr.
Tambourine Man" which he abruptly cuts short, groaning, "The drumming's driving me mad! I'm going out of my brain! The quality of the recording is uniformly excellent. About half of the first disc is just Dylan with his guitar, harmonica, and piano, while for the rest he is accompanied by such great musicians as Mike Bloomfield on guitar, Al Kooper on organ, and members of The Hawks soon to be renamed "The Band" : Robbie Robertson on guitar, Richard Manuel on piano, Garth Hudson on organ, and Rick Danko on bass.
Levon Helm appears playing drums on one track, John Hammond Jr. Numerous additional sidemen are represented. There's occasional studio chatter and several incomplete takes and amusing false starts, but for the most part, this is a wealth of wonderful music replete with Dylan's characteristically complex, clever, oblique, poetic lyrics.
These cuts give the listener invaluable insights into his process and the changes he went through as he refined and polished his work. The box also includes a page booklet with dozens of contemporary photos, two lengthy essays by a music journalist and a scholar, recollections by Al Kooper and others, and full track notes.
When Dylan electrified his sound, he electrified music fans the world over and fundamentally altered the world of music. He really was the cutting edge. More reasonable for the package of 6 discs and 2 hardcover books. I'll listen to the entire thing once or twice and then begin to compile my own "best of" from the more than previously unreleased cuts many, even to bootleggers. The biggest kick so far is hearing a mutated Blonde on Blonde, as if the album is released all over again.
The sound is fuller, the bass is deeper, Dylan's vocals are perfectly placed within the mix. Highlights are Memphis Blues Again as a country arrangement, the masterpiece Just Like a Woman being written on the spot, Leopard Skin Pillbox Hat as an upbeat romp, the majestic Sad Eyed Lady heard again in its entirety in any version. Dylan transitioning from the biting Mike Bloomfield Highway 61 sessions to the sublime muted sound in Nashville, at the top of his game with The Hawks as his personal bar band create brilliant sound and fury.
