You mean the rundown version? I assume the period between BOTT and Slow Train will be covered on some future volume, or maybe the 1978 tour itself.

No there was one from the New Morning sessions or something like that. It kind of sounds like Elvis’s version. I think it was considered for inclusion on Greatest Hits Vol. II, but the 63 version was put on instead.

Greetings to all.

Tell tale signs is a great 2 cd set. I agree that Sony should release the 3rd disc for those of us who dont have it.
I would like to get a copy of the 3rd disc of TTS if possible ??????
no longer avail on Bobs site.

Thanks
Greg

If Tell Tale Signs were broken into three releases (one for each disc),
I would rank Bob’s original work since 1989 in the following order:
1. Tell Tale Signs, disc 1

2. Time Out of Mind
3. 
Love & Theft

4. Tell Tale Signs, disc 2
5. Oh Mercy
6. 
Modern Times
7. Tempest
8. 
Tell Tale Signs, disc 3
9. Under the Red Sky
10. Together Through Life

That's a 'bold statement'. An interesting list. I'd put Love & Theft at the top, and Modern Times below Under the Red Sky; but otherwise pretty close.

I think Modern Times blows away the overrated "Love and Theft". I'd put it second, after TTS1.

Tempest number one for me, including TTS 1, which is, after all, a compilation.

Not much meeting of minds here!

Numbers 3 through 6 shuffle around for me, but for a single listening experience, nothing comes close to TTS1 and TOOM.

What?! Modern Times is a bloated, over-cooked, under-written, monotonous mess. Love and Theft is the pinnacle of the renaissance period. Modern Times marked the moment when the critics finally caught up and, after years of writing Bob off as a has-been, started wildly over-compensating by hailing everything he did as a masterpiece.

Modern Times is great but I also prefer Love and Theft.

Came here to say that I had the worst shitty day of all, but I put on Tell Tale Signs and I feel much better. Sometimes Bob is the only one who seems to understand...

I own everything on the list above. Plus Disc 3 of "Tell Tale Signs."

Merit badge, please.

Does anyone know the story of the Mississippi #3 with the altered lyrics? Was that a later draft in the TOOM session, or an earlier version? It's definitely not the version he showed Sheryl, and obviously not the version that ended up on Love & Theft and on the live shows.

I don’t know the story of it either, but that Mississippi on Disc 3 is great. It’s probably my favorite on TTS.

I'm glad we have it, but it's pretty far removed from my favorite. L&T is #1, by a long shot. Then the TTS disc 1 version is my #2.

How fascinating is it that opinion seems to be split evenly among the four versions. For me, it's
1. TTS #1
2. L&T
3. TTS #2
4. TTS #3

Just to clarify, when I said my favorite on TTS, I meant my favorite Mississippi on TTS, not my favorite track overall. I use to love the Disc 1 Mississippi but I kind of outgrew it or outplayed it over the years and now it’s pretty stale for me. I would probably rank them Love and Theft version, Disc 3, Disc 1, Disc 2.

Should have included Under the Red Sky out-takes instead of some of the rather random live stuff. TV-Talkin' out-take smokes. Always seemed to me to be somewhat lacking because of this.

You mean you don't listen to High Water at Niagara Falls, but do listen to the piano demo of Dignity?

For the record, I prefer the latter. High water never did much for me

Yes, It's not that I don't think they're good, it's just that the sound quality is so different from the rest of the set, it's jarring. I'd prefer them in context, with other such recordings. And I do enjoy the Dignity demo, wish it were longer.
