Tell Tale Signs: The Bootleg Series Vol. 8
Bob Dylan - 2008
I know that I’m going to catch hell for including a double album largely made up of reworked, previously released songs, but Mr. Zimmerman manages to recreate some of his recent catalogue to stunning effect. The alternate version of “Mississippi” that leads off the double disc is a highlight, recorded as a solo delta style tale that may eclipse the original. Not one of these songs feels like a rehash or that it wasn’t meant to sound this way.
Tambe ranks this as the
#9 favorite album of 2008
