BLOOD ON 86 TRACKS: 6-CD SET CHARTS MAKING OF BOB DYLAN’S MASTERPIECE

The appearance of the 6-CD box set ‘More Blood, More Tracks’ as No 14 in ‘The Bootleg Series’, Bob Dylan’s ongoing mega-collection of archive releases, is a landmark moment for his followers, as it charts the making of 1975’s ‘Blood on the Tracks’, considered by many if not most to be the best of all his albums.

It has already generated some excellent writing, by Alex Ross in the New Yorker (13 Nov 2018):

(‘Bob Dylan’s Masterpiece Is Still Hard to Find’)
