I don't even know the release date.

I'll buy it some time to keep my album collection complete but not sure if I will even listen to it all once.

One listen each was about what I've given Shadows and Fallen. Just never cared to listen again.

Actually the wrapper is still on Fallen Angels. I just used the Autorip on Amazon to listen once...



Not saying Fallen Angels is a great record, but even great records usually take a few listens at least to get into. On first listen I didn't particularly like Time Out Of Mind or Blood On The Tracks. You have to give them a chance.

Do we know what's in the deluxe vinyl version yet? Does it come with a CD copy like the past few vinyl releases have?

I have to say that - I could have told you & Best is yet to come are both growing on me quite a bit.
I also have a soft spot for Sentimental Journey as a song I remember listening to with my father.

The rest of the preview leaves me a little flat.

I think it's just the packaging. It's mentioned elsewhere. It's a booklet style that's reminiscent of the old books that people used to house their 78 records in.

My grandparents left behind a few. I still like to pull out Frankie Laine's Moonlight Gambler once in a while. There's also a 45 record in there of my great uncle singing at Coney Island in one of the record booths that they used to have. He died at age 13 due to a dental sedation mishap. So this is a treasured artifact in my family, of any of them actually cared as much as I do.

I keep listening to the NPR stream. A friend of mine always tracks down the link where the entire MP3 stream is linked to and so I've just been playing that nonstop during my commute in and out of the city. I don't just like these songs because bob is singing them, I just love these old songs. To hear Bob doing them is just a match made in heaven for me.

Here's some images of the Deluxe Vinyl

https://twitter.com/BadlandsUK/status/8 ... 2398474240

And the Standard Vinyl front and back, and CD

There's also a totally absurd photo of Bob leaning against a car floating around Facebook on one of the inlays that I can't seem to find at the minute

I will begin listening to SITN and FA now so that those are completed when Triplicate inevitably leaks today.

So excited.

The album looks so ridiculously pompous.

I'd get a couch in that color, without the lettering, and I'm ridiculously modest

Ha hahaha. Oh Bob, you madman.

Apart from the utter insanity of the setup, Bob looks like he really needs a poo. In triplicate.

Will it leak? I'm looking forward to my autorip from Amazon. Will that come at midnight on Friday?

Im going through such a wide range of emotions this album is just what I need right now.

I'm hoping that this lands on Spotify upon release (or shortly thereafter), though they took forever to add Shadows in the Night and still haven't added Fallen Angels. So maybe I will never listen to Triplicate?

Spotify is weird. They added the "real" Royal Albert Hall release off the 1966 set almost immediately.

That's interesting...maybe Dylan's "people" prefer for this music to stay among the hard core fans?

I am happy about Triplicate too!
Great review today by Doug Heselgrave - https://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/ ... eview.html

'Yet, as idiosyncratic and unmistakable as the singer’s approach is; as undeniably “Bob Dylan” as each song sounds, the performances he captured for Triplicate represent, at the same time, the most naked and ego-free music he has ever recorded..

Every one of the performances on Triplicate is heartfelt, exquisite and more than a little battered. When he sings “You must remember this/a kiss is just a kiss,” you feel the weight of every syllable and word. Each lyric is fully considered and savored before it is finally released..

Because Bob Dylan is one of a very few songwriters who has created original works equal to the standards he is interpreting, he is able to sing with an intimacy and spaciousness that only comes with having nothing to prove.
The songs on Triplicate are ones that he had the chance to consider over his long and varied lifetime.

It’s fortunate, then, that he’s chosen to share them, when he just as easily could have sung these songs at home in his living room. It would be understandable had he kept his relationship with this music private.
Instead, Triplicate allows us to experience the rare and intimate pleasure of listening to an artist connect with, and express the subtle and infinite joys suggested by a great song'
:D :D :D

My uninformed guess would be that because this material is generally geared toward an older demographic, there is not as much of an imperative to add it to Spotify (which I'm assuming skews a bit younger). But really, I have no clue. It is extremely odd given that Spotify pretty thoroughly covers the rest of his catalog.

I assume so... everything leaks. This thing is currently in the hands of different stores. I believe due to time zones it will be in stores in some country while it is Thursday afternoon in the states. So, it should be available by certain avenues tomorrow afternoon at the latest.

3 stars from the usually effusive Andy Gill, here thankfully having the stones to square up to Bob's singing - which is the main reason my can't be arsedness with the album is itself elephantine:

http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-enter ... 56441.html

Which brings one to the elephant in this suite of rooms: there is some properly awful singing on Triplicate, partly due, one supposes, to Dylan’s hefty touring schedule, and partly to the strain of recording with band and horns en masse. Certainly, he hasn’t learnt how to tackle this sort of material with the relaxed command of, say, Willie Nelson, as evidenced by their recordings of “Stardust”. And too often here, Dylan strains painfully for notes beyond his comfort zone....

Maybe I am blind, but it seems that these songs on "Triplicate" mean so much to Dylan that he fails to credit or even mention the songwriters anywhere? (I do have the deluxe vinyl) If that's true, it's plain weird.

No mention of the horn players either, it seems, but that could be a 60s, "we don't mention the session guys" kind of thing. But even back then you'd usually credit the writers?

At least it doesn't say Dylan wrote them!
