So I'm poking around on the Internet trying to look for info on a Dylan related topic and I stumble upon this:

"Another Holy Grail would be the supersecret rehearsal tapes from 2008 where Dylan effortlessly croons through the Sinatra repertoire in a clear and soaring tenor."

This was written on Wed June 1st, 2011, 23:16 GMT.

Here's a link: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=59396&view=print

Many, including myself, were amazed at how clear and smooth Dylan's voice sounded on, "Full Moon and Empty Arms" that was released a short while ago.
Does anyone have any more info on the alleged 2008 tracks?

Don't know, but I think we heard a better/smooth voice live in 2014 than back in 2008.

I imagine that poster was joking, djdn't McCartney do a standards album in 2008? or 2011. When the album was announced I wasn't too surprised, just that it took so long for him to do it.

I heard rumors it was recorded in February, and the recent addition of Stay WIth Me, seem to confirm that.

The writer who refers to Dylan in 2008 or now as a 'tenor' has to be suspect.

His tenor or baritone designation is irrelevant. It's the amount of time he uses the grit and rasp parts that matters

According to T Bone Burnett in a recent article, Shadows in the Night was recorded at the same time as Lost on the River, sometime earlier this year. Maybe Dylan has been rehearsing it for a long time though which may be promising. It's also possible that he's been in the process of recording off and on over the years

We'll learn the answer when the album comes out & we read the credits. If Denny Freeman is on guitar, it's from 2008.

Shadows In The Night was recorded at Capitol in Hollywood with Al Schmidt engineering during sessions in Feb and part of March this year. Yes, some of the sessions were literally next door to the T-Bone Burnett sessions. Studio A and Studio B. The only addition to the regular touring band I am aware of was guitarist Dean Parks on a couple of tracks.

Why does every fart Dylan,...um, releases have to be described as, another "HOLY GRAIL," "SUPERSECRET," blah, blah, blah........

This may have worked back in the day to extend the Dylan myth, these days it seems tedious!!

"Super secret rehearsal tapes"........... :roll: :roll:

People used to give a damn but........things have changed.

Kinda spooky that he wrote it 3 years ago. Good guess or maybe hes been planning it a while.

Wasn't there rumors about album allegedly called "Blue Eyes in The Night" or something like that? Maybe this album was indeed planned but was re-recorded recently.
