With such a vast amount of material available for Dylan's career, it is easy sometimes to go for years without hearing a particular album or era. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

It wasn’t until the band stumbled into lockstep, all musicians’ frills burned away, that the song’s dark shadow loomed into view. Critics and fans hailed that one as a rebirth: here, seemingly, was Dylan riding high, Time Out of Mind’s Edgar Allan Poe rags tossed off in favor of a natty bowler hat and a riverboat gambler’s mustache. In 1996-97 Dylan wrote eleven tracks about growing old and these tunes are full of heartbreak and loss.Conversely, Version 2 of ‘Can’t Wait’ (CD 3 – 1997) slows things right down – it’s sultry, dubby, late-night blues, while Version 1 of ‘Love Sick’ (CD 2 – 1997) is seriously spooky, with Dylan’s voice sounding husky and cracked.

Lanois rarely spoke to Dylan before and after takes, and entire days unfolded in icy, uncomfortable silence. The extra discs yield the usual Bootleg pleasures: The Disc 2 version of “Cold Irons Bound” features stunning alternate lyrics about “stones in the pathway hurled” and “clouds of blood,” while the live versions of “’Til I Fell in Love With You” and “Standing in the Doorway” inflect the songs with sinewy hints of roadhouse blues, soul, gospel. Rolling Stone 's David Browne gave the album a positive review, writing that the Time Out of Mind sessions deserve the "under-the-microscope treatment". Dylan, ever the role player, was inhabiting a persona, slipping into a black jacket and working the character for fresh angles.Back cover variant to Fragments (Time Out Of Mind Sessions (1996-1997)), with three label logos instead of two. All tracks on disc four are previously unavailable with the exception of "Make You Feel My Love" (May 21, 1998, Los Angeles). Der neue Remix 2022*****, vom Magier Bob Dylan gewünscht, weil er unzufrieden mit dem aus dem Jahr 1997 war, lässt die Finsternis zurück und die Stimme klingt wie ein Rabe der in der warmen Morgensonne in der Mitte des Geschehens steht und seine alten Geschichten vorträgt die wir alle kennen, denn "Lieder sind wie Gedanken, einen Moment lang können sie die heroische Illusion vermitteln, man könne die Zeit anhalten". There are too many times I've bought stuff that has "alternate versions" of songs, and invariably they're just alternate takes of the same song, no real noticeable differences.

The previous Bootleg Series, Springtime in New York, suffered from focusing on too wide a time period as well as running too short. The story began, appropriately enough, in a picaresque old playhouse Lanois dubbed the Teatro, filled with storybook touches—cob-webbed 16mm projectors, dusty mirror balls. It’s as devoted as he ever sounded, and behind him, Garnier and Mangurian play so subtly and understated they register as lighting.Disc 4 offers live versions of all the tracks from Time Out of Mind except Dirt Road Blues, but with the addition of Mississipi, which was originally intended for the album. The official story surrounding Time Out of Mind goes something like this: Bob Dylan, stricken by the death of Jerry Garcia and sensing a hellhound on his own trail, turned to his beloved old blues records to exorcise the quickening dread he felt upon realizing that the bell also tolls for Zimmerman. They decamped instead to Criteria Studio in Miami, a space with a hallowed history ( Aretha Franklin’s Young, Gifted and Black, the Allman Brothers’ Eat a Peach) and the ambiance of an airport security detention center.
