Limited Mobile Fidelity SACD hybrid disc. Mastered from the original master tapes. Love And Theft is the 31st studio album rock icon Bob Dylan. It was originally released on September 11, 2001 by Columbia Records. It featured backing by his touring band of the time, with keyboardist Augie Meyers added for the sessions. It peaked at #5 on the Billboard 200. The album continued Dylan's artistic comeback following 1997's Time Out of Mind and was given an even more enthusiastic reception. The title of the album was apparently inspired by historian Eric Lott's book Love & Theft: Blackface Minstrelsy and the American Working Class, which was published in 1993.
Limited Mobile Fidelity SACD hybrid pressing. The ever-evasive Bob Dylan never explicitly stated exactly what represented the another side of himself referenced in the title to his second 1964 record. Yet the whimsical moods, hallucinogenic prose, humorous angles, transparent mistakes, and noncommittal themes give a pretty clear idea at what the Bard hinted as he emerged from being labeled as a reluctant generation spokesperson and folk savior after releasing two highly intellectual, socially pioneering sets replete with protest songs. Dylan needed to take a breath, step back from the drama, and reevaluate his surroundings. The uninhibited joie de vive is discernible in the rattling piano lines on 'Black Crow Blues', seemingly subconscious ramble of the hysterical folk rhyming of 'Motorpsycho Nightmare', bluesy dream sequencing throughout' I Don't Believe You', and intentionally out-of-tune yodeling during 'All I Really Want to Do'. On a majority of the prized set, Dylan let's his guard down, but does so in clever manners that speak to his surrealist imagination and biting wit. He possesses the rare ability to make planned strategies appear spontaneous, to challenge audiences with stinting wordplay and minimalist melodies that provide a deceptive false security.
Pat Garrett & Billy The Kid (original Soundtrack)
Bob Dylan's Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid Is Much More Than a Soundtrack to Sam Peckinpah's Western Film: Grammy-Nominated Effort Brims with Outlaw Adventure and Sense of Place Mastered from the Original Master Tapes for Unsurpassed Sound: Hybrid SACD Capped at 2,500 Numbered Copies Includes Original Version of 'Knockin' on Heaven's Door' and Country-Flavored Instrumentals: A-List Cast of Musicians Features Roger McGuinn, Jim Keltner, and Booker T. Jones On the surface, Bob Dylan's Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid serves as a potent soundtrack to Sam Peckinpah's western of the same name. Yet the Grammy-nominated set is much more, remaining distinctive and intriguing because of the cast Dylan assembled for it's creation-and their collective performances. The 10-track album effortlessly breathes with country, folk, blues, and old-time pop flavors. A-list collaborators, including drummer Jim Keltner, fiddler Byron Berline, and Byrds legend Roger McGuinn, assist Dylan in making instrumental portraits teem with detail, character, and a definite sense of place. Then there's 'Knockin' on Heaven's Door.' Transcending the status of song, the Bard's poignant tune has gone on to become nothing short of an anthem-a symbolic hymn whose expressiveness encompasses resilience, sorrow, forgiveness, readiness, and more. Heard anew on exquisite analog and digital editions, everything here takes on deeper meaning and conveys elevated levels of enjoyment. Mastered from the original master tapes, and strictly limited to 2,500 copies on hybrid SACD, Mobile Fidelity's reissues feature reference-level instrumental separation and full-bodied tones that allow the songs to blossom amidst soundstages whose dimensions are limited only by the breadth of your stereo system. The flinty, raw acoustic edge of Dylan and Bruce Langhorne's guitars come into immediate relief. Booker T. Jones' relaxed albeit taut bass, Jolly Roger's downhome banjo, Russ Kunkel's textured bongos, and the crucial string accompaniments flourish. In every regard, Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid has never sounded better.
