The drums are a little more compressed and blended into the stereo field, improving the soundstage greatly, but not making it unrecognisable from it's original stereo mix.

Big A2 , Nov 13, Location: Greater Vancouver. Dave , Nov 13, Location: Mudwest, CA. Quick question - I have the redbook remasters of Desire and Infidels. I think they're better than the old cd's but they sound too sharp. I actually ripped new versions of these cd's with about 2 db taken out at 10k. With this in mind, there's absolutely no reason I should buy the sacd versions of these albums, right?

I don't have an expensive eq unit that can change the eq on the sacd mastering without degrading the signal too much.

So it would be pointless to have these albums in higher res if they're too bright, right? C6H12O6 , Dec 3, Location: Newcastle, WA. I never owned those LPs back in the day, so I'm not familiar with the original sound of those; but do the CD remasters have more low end? Location: USA. Once upon a time. The abyss is hidden away now, like the lost mine of a dead prospector.

I still would. But not an album of Dylan breathing softly. There is the power and the real depth of the song itself, that erases our Tennessee truck-stop postcard image of moonshining and moves in with a vision of nature, an ideal of repose, and a sense of rebellion that goes back to the founding of the country. Old men hiding out in mountain valleys, keeping their own peace. Every vocal was a surprise. The song itself, the structure of the song, was barely a clue.

The limits were there to be evaded. Promoters are now talking about a ten city tour with the possibility of adding more dates, according to Variety.

Hoofbeats, vaguely aided by a string bass and guitar, form the background to a vocal that blows a cemetery wind across the lines of the song.

A quote:. I was trying to get him to do a benefit for civil rights or something. I sure would like to meet Dylan. In fact he wants to meet you. Would Self-Portrait make you want to meet Dylan? The performances were mostly clumsy or languid and all together would have made a lousy record. He sounded something like Billie Holiday. There is a curious move toward self-effacement; Dylan removing himself from a position from which he is asked to exercise power in the arena.

He must enter the studio and come out with that masterpiece. But the pattern is set now, for the biggest stars — one a year, if that. Well, three cheers for John Fogerty. Because Highway 61 Revisited changed the world, the albums that follow it must — but not in the same way, of course. He stole one from Max. He had to have them, you know? Just had to have them. Once he got busted because he heard this record on a juke box and shoved his fist through the glass of the box trying to get the record out.

But would you steal this record? So you said well, alright, there it is. What happened then is what we always look for. Not that he or anyone could have duplicated the impact of Highway 61 Revisited or Blonde on Blonde any more than a re-united Beatles could have ever conjured another Sgt.

His retreat from stardom following his motorcycle accident, his disgust with the voice-of-a-generation thing, is well known; he himself writes about that period eloquently in his memoir, Chronicles: Volume One.

The musician was only Woodstock regeneration: Dylan channeling his inner Mennonite. Over the years, Dylan has offered conflicting views of how seriously or not he took Self Portrait —all probably true.
