Blood on the Tracks (New York Sessions) - 1974
Though I've always preferred New Morning or Desire over the much treasured Blood On The Tracks when it comes to Dylan's mid-70s output, these original New York sessions would have made one hell of an LP if the man hadn't second guessed himself and re-recorded all but a couple of the tracks back home in Minnesota. Famously and meticulously constructing this album for months, the back story as to why Dylan recorded the album, nearly released it and finally chose to re-record everything is so long and storied that I'll leave it up to the real Dylanologists to give you the full story. It's up to you however, to hear for yourself how it would have sounded in the first place. Enjoy.
