‘Bob Dylan – The Rolling Thunder Revue: The 1975 Live Recordings’
Columbia Records and Legacy Recordings have released Bob Dylan – The Rolling Thunder Revue: The 1975 Live Recordings.
A comprehensive anthology of music from the first leg of Bob Dylan’s groundbreaking Rolling Thunder Revue tour, the 14-CD box set includes all five of Dylan’s full sets that were professionally recorded. The collection also includes recently unearthed rehearsals at New York’s S.I.R. studios and the Seacrest Motel in Falmouth, MA plus a bonus disc showcasing one-of-a-kind performances from the tour.
Launched in the autumn of 1975, Bob Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Revue flaunted the touring conventions of the time by featuring an eclectic cast of characters and playing small and unusual venues with little advance notice. The shows would often stretch to more than four hours long, generating some of Dylan’s most dramatic and dynamic on-stage performances ever.
The box set serves as a companion piece to the new film, Rolling Thunder Revue – A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese, premiering on Netflix on 12th June. All of Bob Dylan’s performances from the film can be found in this collection.
Bob Dylan – The Rolling Thunder Revue: The 1975 Live Recordings is available now.
