Dylan, Bob – Blood on the Tracks (2007 Reissue on 180g Vinyl)
Blood on the Tracks is the fifteenth studio album by Bob Dylan, released on 20 January 1975. Dylan began recording the album in New York City in September 1974. In December, shortly before the album was due to released, Dylan abruptly re-recorded much of the material in a studio in Minneapolis. The final album contains five tracks recorded in New York and five from Minneapolis.
Blood on the Tracks initially received mixed reviews, but has subsequently been acclaimed as one of Dylan’s greatest albums by both critics and fans. Blood on the Tracks is considered an outstanding example of the confessional singer-songwriter’s craft, having been called ‘the truest, most honest account of a love affair from tip to stern ever put down on magnetic tape’. In interviews, Dylan has denied that the songs on the album are autobiographical.
Blood on the Tracks reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200 charts and No. 4 on the UK Albums Chart. The album remains one of Dylan’s best-selling studio releases, with a double-platinum U.S. certification by the Recording Industry Association of America. In 2015, it was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. It was voted No. 7 in the third edition of Colin Larkin’s book All Time Top 1000 Albums, in 2003, the album was ranked No. 16 on Rolling Stone’s list of ‘The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time’, rising to the No. 9 spot in the 2020 revision of that same list.
