The wait is over!!! Out today (November 2nd) is perhaps the most eagerly anticipated vault release for fans of Bob Dylan's 1970's "romantic" period, with the new set More Blood, More Tracks - The Bootleg Series Vol. 14. The press release for the new series, states: "The pivotal studio recordings made by Bob Dylan during six extraordinary sessions in 1974; four in New York -- September 16th, 17th, 18th, and 19th -- and two in Minneapolis -- December 27th, and 30th -- resulted in the Dylan's 1975 masterpiece, Blood On The Tracks."

Blood On The Tracks, which was originally released on January 20th, 1975, is considered not only Dylan's comeback album, but his crowning artistic statement. The album hit Number One on March 1st, 1975 for the first of its two-week run, and has gone on to receive double platinum status in the U.S. and in 2015 was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Highlights on the set include such instant Dylan standards "Tangled Up In Blue," "Shelter From The Storm," "You're A Big Girl Now," "Idiot Wind," and "Simple Twist Of Fate," among others.

According to the official announcement: "Blood On The Tracks was originally recorded during four days in New York City in September, 1974. Soon thereafter, the album was mastered and review copies began to circulate. A few months later, Dylan felt the album needed a different approach and rerecorded five of the tracks at Minneapolis Sound 80 Studios beginning in late December of that year. While a few of the outtakes from the original New York sessions have been highly prized by bootleggers and collectors, most of these recordings have never been available in any format."

The six-disc full-length deluxe version of Bob Dylan - More Blood, More Tracks - The Bootleg Series Vol. 14 includes the long sought after complete New York sessions in chronological order including outtakes, false starts and studio banter. The album's producers have worked from best sources available, in most cases utilizing the original multi-track session tapes.

Bob Dylan, who still dips heavily into his backlog of 1960's and '70s tunes during his shows, was asked about the composition of his groundbreaking work across his first two decades as a songwriter: "There's a magic to that and it's not Siegfried & Roy-kinda magic, y'know, and it's a different kind of a penetrating magic. And, y'know, I did it. . . I did it at one time." in North Charleston, South Carolina at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center.
