  1. Thanks Mat –

    sorry to go off topic, but:
    Hey Bob fans, I’m listening to Blood on the Tracks and associated
    boots a lot at the moment — was there only ever the one (officially
    released) version of Simple Twist Of Fate ???? I thought there was
    another but I can’t find it anywhere.

  2. I can’t recall any alt version being released on any of the Bootleg Series releases. It wasn’t on Biograph, More Greatest Hits or Masterpieces either. Haven’t got my main Bob master drive plugged in right now, so can’t be absolutely sure.

    Next best (almost official) version is from the John Hammond TV Tribute. You can find it here, included as bonus trax, or oon some ‘grey release’ pirate CD/DVD releases


    1. thank you
      I think I must have confused it with big girl now alternative
      which sounds from same session?? just guitar plus electric bass

  3. ps this is another good Van show. Curent tour is pretty good, tight and focused. Recording here is VG+ to EX-. I personally found the Stuttgart gig (13 July) to be even better, both in trems of sound and performance/setlist.

  4. Yep Tony, you’ll find the awesome original ‘New York Sessions’ version of Big Girl Now on Biograph. One of several songs (incl Idiot Wind) which were re-recorded with a richer full band sound prior to the album release. Also on the ‘New York Session’ boot which is actually from a test pressing of the album as originally conceived.

  5. Tony, 2nd attempt – first vanished into the ether, so briefly

    Find the really ex alt (earlier) ver of ‘Big Girl Now’ on Biograph (Bio ‘mix’ of course) and several other BOT trax (incl ‘Idiot Wind’) on boot ‘New York Sessions’ copied from test pressing of orig ver of BOT album. Some trax were re-recorded prior to final rel, with a richer fuller band sound. Many of the other earlier versions were included on the first ‘Bootleg Series’ box ‘vol 1-5’.

    Try to find the boot if you can, the orig period sound/mix is far preferable to my ears.

  6. Sorry Tony, my ‘guidance’ has kept disappearing into God knows where. Definitely more of an issue with this blog host service

    Right, my posts aren’t appearing. No doubt they will all appear at once sometime soon

  7. Great comments, both about the Blood On The Tracks outtakes, and this show. PS Tony – Sony has a ‘Bootleg Series’ piece with all BOTT outtakes ready to go, from what I’ve heard, but held it up to put out the Self Portrait one instead. I feel 100% sure it will all see the light of day when they’re ready!

  8. Yes Grant, the longest ever rumour, that will one day turn into a reality i’m sure. Still think I’ll be listening to the period sound for the ones we’ve already got. With BOTT we are lucky in that regard. Mind you, from an article i read years back (in ISIS I think), there would seem to be a multitude of takes still lying around. in Sony’s defence they did do a wonderful job with the mix and mastering for the Cutting Edge, so I will reserve judgement. Also it was worth the wait for the Self Portrait stuff, which was revelatory
