This just in.......from Big O [yeah yeah......]BOB DYLAN
New, uncirculated Blood on the Tracks track plus upgrade b-side
These two tracks just surfaced at planetrocklosslessbootlegs.com and it’s thanks to LesKokay for sharing them.
This upload is the previously unknown/uncirculated ‘Idiot Wind’ (16 September 74) from an early acetate that doesn’t have the organ overdub (8 October 74) which is on the test pressing. It is the same take as the Test pressing (T6) and not from the Bootleg Series 1-3 take (T4 recorded 19 September 74).
We pushed each other a little too far and one day I just jumped* into a raging stormThe * words indicate the differences between the original (TP) and the official outtake (BS 1-3).
A hound dog bayed behind* your trees, as I was packin’ up my uniform
I figured I’d lost you anyway, why go on, what’s the use?
In order to get in a word with you, I’d had to come up with some excuse
And that just struck me kinda funny.
‘jumped’ is replaced with ‘turned’ and ‘behind’ becomes ‘beyond’ on BS 1-3 take.
The second track is ‘Meet Me in the Morning’ - b side to single 38-540533.
This new track has been around recently, but in very poor quality.
In the new outtake the second half of verse two is new
Honey every day’s been darknessAnd ‘Well, I feel just like that rooster’ becomes ‘You’re just like that rooster’. (Verse three).
Ever since you’ve been gone
[Ed: However, the lyric changes described by Les don’t follow what’s on the track that’s been shared.]
Neither of these tracks have appeared on any bootlegs, pirates or torrents and have both been sourced and transferred by me. They have done light ‘de-clicking’ on the acetate track, and normalisation, but no compression.
