Date: Mon, 2 Oct 1995 15:37:45 +0500 From: xyx Subject: DEEP BENEATH THE WAVES vol 10 Hope you enjoyed the lengthy DEEP volume 9 on "1965 Revisited," if not then suck seaweed. Thanks to all for their comments. Shiver me timbers, here we go again....... "DIGNITY" 1CD compilation (live/studio/rehearsal) Moonlight 9502 Not really a new one but new to me, so I'll review it anyway. In a clamshell: very eclectic and high quality compilation which could have been a lot better if......(see end of review). Moonlight has yet to put out a "dog," at least a Dylan one, and this is no exception. 18 high quality tracks from various sources, including 6 (by my count) appearing on CD for the first time and several others appearing in best quality available on CD. To wit: 1) A COUPLE MORE YEARS - wonderful acoustic demo from "Hearts of Fire," only 1:30, but 3 verses and in excellent quality. 1st time on CD, I believe 2) DIGNITY - original mix previously available on "Deeds of.." & others 3) ABANDOVED LOVE - Other End 7/3/75 live appearance, better sound than is found on Wanted Man's "Songs for Patty Valentine" 4) COMING FROM THE HEART - 1978 Rundown rehearsals, previously available but not on CD, in this quality, to my knowledge. Rumor has it 2 CDs worth of these rehearsals coming soon from Razor's Edge 5) CITY OF GOLD - 11/15/80 performance from soundboard at SF Fox Warfield 6) WATERED DOWN LOVE - excellent quality alternate take of a fine tune in blow-away quality, clearly superior to one on Sick Cat CD "Odds & Ends" 7) I'LL KEEP IT WITH MINE - the instrumental track from 1/65 in really fine sound. 8) THIEF ON THE CROSS - live unreleased Nov 10.1981, only known performance. Excellent sound, also available on KTS "Stadiums of the Damned" 9) ROLLIN IN MY SWEET BABY'S ARMS - 1987 Dead rehearsals, previously available 10) DIRTY WORLD - fine alternate cut from Wilbury One made all the more finer as it is prior to Jeff Lynne getting his hand on it. Excellent sound 11) You Ain't Goin Nowhere - w/Happy Traum from banjo session, take #1 in excellent quality. 12) THANK GOD - from 9/14/86 Chabod Telethon (TV), nice transfer from TV and interesting to hear. First time on CD 13) LONESOME WHISTLE BLUES - Freewheelin' outtake in stereo. previously available 14) AINT GONNA GO TO HELL - from legendary Toronto '80 soundboard - fine fine 15) TROUBLE IN MIND - b-side from "Slow Train Coming" 16) GOT LOVE IF YOU WANT IT - from advance promo tape of "Down in the Groove," excellent sound & originally scheduled for inclusion on LP. 17) SPIRIT OF R&R - Brian Wilson track from "Sweet Insanity" sessions w/ Bob contributing not only background but his own verses. Nice quality but forgettable tune, IMO. Bob seems out of place. 18) MAMA YOU BEEN ON MY MIND - live track from 11/1/92 Wilkes Barre, really fine sound and , as usual, Bob nails this one. Sound quality, as previously stated, appears to be equal to or better than previously available. One main drawback : disk clocks in at just under 60 minutes, so where is "Important Words" and a few others that could have fit right in. I'm not much for compilations, but this one is better than most. A very enjoyable disk to listen to, the quality is outstanding overall as are the majority of the performances, even the curiosity pieces (i.e. Thank God). "You can't go wrong with a Moontune Dylan," I said that. Peace - xyx P.S. Choose one song??? What is this, rec.music.sophies.choice"
