You might be surprised when it is released...

These quotes from Bob Inc. featured in Rolling Stone over the last few years:-

"Sets for Blood on the Tracks and Blonde on Blonde will eventually come out." (July 2013)

"We don't know exactly what the next Bootleg Series is going to be," says a source close to the Dylan camp. "There's a couple of things on our minds, but the natural next one is Blood on the Tracks." (January 2014)

"We're thinking we'll revisit the 1975 era and Blood on the Tracks," says the source. "The unheard stuff from there is crazy. You can hear the first day of recordings before they put all that echo on. It's amazing." (August 2014)

"We'd also love to revisit Blood on the Tracks, Infidels, Oh Mercy and the gospel albums." (September 2015)

The only other set under major consideration is one that chronicles the 1974 Blood on the Tracks sessions. "Personally I think the gospel set is more interesting," says a source close to the Dylan camp. "Blood on the Tracks is similar to The Cutting Edge in what you're hearing is different version of the same thing. You're hearing process." (October 2016)

Maybe, thanks for posting the quotes though.
I did buy The Cutting Edge CDs, but to be honest, for me anyhow, songs in progress,
false starts etc just don't do it for me. If there are completely unheard of full recordings
of BOTT songs, or songs with completely different lyrics, then maybe i'll be more inclined
to buy it. Actually, who am i kidding, i'll buy it anyway, just to have it in the collection.
I'm a slave to Bob's official releases.

"Echo" probably referring to a track like STOF, or BOR. Reverb is the more accurate term.

Indeed. I bet the dry mix sounds pretty weird. Bob usually benefits from mo'verb.

John Wesley Harding was a completely dry mix (no reverb on most tracks) and i loved that album.
Sometimes though, if the songs gotta be dramatic, or have an emotional impact then i could see the
need for reverb.

The mono JWH has more liberal use of 'verb, most noticeable on AATW.

A small tragedy.

Cant remember if I heard it here or on the S. Hoffman forums, but someone that was involved in the project posted that people will be surprised with the BOTT BS release. Plenty of stuff that hasnt circulated, totally different takes, etc

Of course. Just like any recording session.

That he didn't finish and complete the song I'm Not There. I sure wish he had. There's a real gem in there.

No. The reason it works so beautifully and mysteriously is precisely because it's not finished. Which makes it finished.

Spot on. One of my favourite Dylan recordings precisely because of the exact way it is, in every way.

It reminds me that it's okay he never developed "I Can't Leave Her Behind" or "On a Rainy Afternoon", the hotel tape allows one's imagination to run wild with it. It's kind of like unrequited love or a nicotine addiction, it leads you to the borders of paradise without ever opening the gates.

That and 'Polly Vaughan' - great vocals. The instrumentation and arrangements are fussy and OTT, though, and I can imagine why Bob wasn't happy with the results. That electric guitar in 'Kaatskill,' for example, with all its noodling behind the vocals: just annoying. Would love to hear a bare-bones mix of the sessions.

Not having included "This Evening So Soon" in Self Portrait. He could have cut songs like Alberta 1 and 2 or All The Tired Horses to include that masterpiece.

What!? The way the electric guitar bounces behind Dylan in that recording is indispensable in my opinion.

The misguided delusion that the holy trilogy was the best that Bob ever did or could do. Piffle. Straight up piffle repeated by hippies who still think the 60's were more awesomererer than anything else.

The 'holy' trilogy was from '79 - '81, not the '60s.

Admittedly, Slow Train Comin', Saved, and Shot of Love are pretty awesome... which is why we are soon to be blessed with the Official Bootleg Series 13 release of more gospel material. Difficult to imagine it will can any holier than that.

It was basically the 60's stuff that made him a worldwide phenomenon and laid the groundwork for the Nobel - and the Nobel committee is not a group of hippies.

And as you are such a self proclaimed expert, what have you produced that might leave us awestruck? Enlighten us oh gifted one(I won't hold my breath).

It wasn't. A lot of it is eclipsed by his more mature work. Many flashes of utter brilliance to be sure, but much of it inconsistent. Nothing compared to the more mature genius of BOTT, TOOM and L&T. I'll acknowledge the absolute change he wrought in rock and roll songwriting at the time, but that doesn't make it better than his later work. Hippies get confused between his art and the peace and love hippie second coming myth they built around him he's spent his entire career denying. That falls on deaf ears as they continue to live in their dream world. Get over it.

No. I'm using the term sarcastically, not literally.
