Fog City Blues: More Blood, More Tracks

The latest installment in Bob Dylan's Bootleg Series chronicles the sessions in late 1974 that resulted in the landmark album Blood On The Tracks.

The six-disc set contains multiple takes of familiar songs shows Dylan framing and interpreting the words to shade or alter their meanings, chasing not studio perfection but a particular balance between narrative. His project, as NPR's Tom Moon puts it, "isn't to simply document the arc of a love affair: Dylan's searching for a specific tone and temperament to enhance the scenes he'd written – scenes set in the messy aftermath of all-consuming romance, when all that's left of a noble love is empty-room echoes and not-entirely-trustworthy memories." Tune in as host Devon Strolovitch digs in to Dylan this Wednesday 11/07 at 10 pm.
