An awe-inspiring collection, including fifteen songs previously unreleased, from the early 60s. Just listen to the excerpt from his song about the racist murder of Emmett Till.
Recorded a couple of weeks before the release of Freewheelin’, when Dylan was lower on the bill than Jean Ritchie. Red-Scare-mongering gets the piss taken badly; there’s a terriffic Masters Of War. Audiophile 180g.
The more expensive vinyl is from Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab (and well worth it); the cheaper from Sundazed.
The so-called Royal Albert Hall Concert (recorded in Manchester). Like A Rolling Stone is something else.
Relaxed and acoustic at Philharmonic Hall (with Joan Baez).
The soundtrack to the Martin Scorsese film — including twenty-six previously unreleased recordings.
‘Rare and unreleased, 1989-2006’, with twenty-six tracks out here for the first time.
The more expensive vinyl is from Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab, two platters playing at 45rpm, the business; the other is from Sundazed.
Lovely, intimate 128-page book and sizzling 18-tracker devoted to the electric guitar preacher and his COGIC buddies. Once again CaseQuarter brings the shit.
‘Experimental-spiritualistic environments’ — sax, keys, perc, viola, recorder, guitar, mbira, under the influence of out-there multi-media, Noh and Balinese Theatre… and you know what. Glorious 1973 hippie shit.
Heartfelt hymns and songs of praise, deconstructed and rebuilt. Sometimes reverent, sometimes raging, sometimes playful, always spellbinding. ‘Christ Is Not Cute’ runs the Fahey quote on the sleeve. A beauty.
