Japanese original release of “Side Tracks,” which was originally released as bonus CDs for “The Complete Album Collection Vol.1.” Features cardboard sleeve artwork faithfully replicating the LP which was released for “record store day.” Also features the high-fidelity Blu-spec CD2 format (compatible with standard CD player). Uses the latest remastering which was used for “The Complete Album Collection.” The liner notes include new Japanese translations of lyrics. Released on the Black Friday edition in 2013 Record Store Day brouhaha, Bob Dylan’s Side Tracks is a 30-track journey into the deeper cuts of the legendary musician’s catalogue. In essence – It stands as an alternate history, a left-of-center greatest hits collection from an artist whose best songs sometimes are the stray cats and orphans left as B-sides or recording room scraps. Most everything here has appeared elsewhere on compilations like the incomparable Biograph, but by stripping the record of Dylan’s well-known songs, it provides a deeper look into his metamorphosis from nasally folk artist to his current status as a gravel-voiced elder statesman.
