About this deal

This makes for a really fascinating and rewarding listen as you not only trace the evolution of the songs but can decide whether you prefer the album as released or as a more upbeat version. It still sounds like a Lanois production but some of the more processed sounds are reduced to give a more 'live in the studio' feel. And the extra sides of outtakes from the convoluted sessions that produced this gem are equally as compelling.

I felt that his voice, which was at one of it's least easy on the ears stages in the mid-1990s, was being propped up, or glossed over, by the production. It includes such iconic songs as “Love Sick”, “Not Dark yet” and “Make You Feel My Love”, which became a modern standard after it was covered by artists as wide ranging as Billy Joel, Garth Brooks and of course Adele. The story began, appropriately enough, in a picaresque old playhouse Lanois dubbed the Teatro, filled with storybook touches—cob-webbed 16mm projectors, dusty mirror balls.Wer die Möglichkeit hat seine Live-Auftritte zu besuchen sollte dies tun oder sich die Bootlegs an Land ziehen. The compilation includes a remix of the original Time Out of Mind album, outtakes, alternate versions and live recordings. Disc 1 is a new mix of the original album, with a less gloomy feel, and bringing Dylan's feral growl right up front in your living room.

But the story of Fragments—the story of the album Time Out Of Mind isn’t, but almost was—rests with “Mississippi. For a total contrast, listen to the stunning version of the hymn-like ‘Make You Feel My Love’ (take one – CD 3 – 1997) – a song with gospel organ that’s become a standard and has been recorded by the likes of Adele, Billy Joel and Neil Diamond. follows the evolution of songs written for the album, from intimate early incarnations in the previously unreleased 1996 Teatro sessions through incandescent live renditions showcasing Dylan and his touring ensemble channeling the songs on-stage from 1998-2001. Tell Tale Signs, but it’s nice to have it as part of the box set for continuity and completist reasons. To be fair, with the new version, Brauer has nailed it – the remix is sharper, crisper and live-sounding; the performances are more intimate and immersive.So in conclusion, I am glad I bought it, it offers more than I thought, although the inclusion of CD 5 is annoying if you bought the deluxe Tell Tale Signs. They decamped instead to Criteria Studio in Miami, a space with a hallowed history ( Aretha Franklin’s Young, Gifted and Black, the Allman Brothers’ Eat a Peach) and the ambiance of an airport security detention center. Considering the often sombre and spectral mood of Time Out of Mind, it’s fascinating to hear how in some cases the different takes are much more upbeat and lighter than the final recordings.
