There is not only “ANOTHER SIDE OF BOB DYLAN”, the album is been recorded two albums of sound source of “HIGHWAY 61 REVISITED” flying one, it was called the topic is in circulation among traders in the mid-90s . The was recorded there mainly in the album take rough mono mix, differences and degree except take that was recorded in this time “ANOTHER TAKE” that contains the producer of the announcement before you play, “HIGHWAY 61 Toward the “Ending has accounted for many mix of state that does not fade out.
Those of course are a number of items at that time that was distributed because it is rare sound source but had been released, they are that the nature of the original is acetate, it was recorded in the equalization that held down the scratch noise emitted more than normal analog vinyl was just. Is it but I similar even “ANOTHER TAKE” of this time, actually those who listened the state was recorded honestly acetate without the equalization will not than not very many. So I will have to included with this first release worth a version as its acetate state.

Please enjoy together also this acetate sound source in the first minute.

Another Takeには昨年登場したセッション新音源だけでなく、以前から出回っていたアセテート音源も使われています。これはフォーク時代のディランと親交があった俳優のエメット・グローガンがディランから譲り受けたアセテートが彼の没後になって流出したもので、ファンの間ではエメット・グローガン・アセテートと呼ばれていました。そこには「ANOTHER SIDE OF BOB DYLAN」だけでなく、アルバムが一枚飛んで「HIGHWAY 61 REVISITED」の二枚のアルバムの音源が収録され、90年代半ばにトレーダー間で流通して話題を呼びました。そこに収録されたのは主にアルバム収録テイクのラフ・モノ・ミックスで、今回「ANOTHER TAKE」に収録したテイク以外は演奏する前にプロデューサーのアナウンスが入っている程度の違いや、「HIGHWAY 61」の方ではエンディングがフェイドアウトしない状態のミックスが多くを占めています。
もちろんレアな音源ですので流通した当時でアイテムはいくつもリリースされていましたが、それらは元がアセテートという性質上、通常のアナログ・ビニール以上に発せられるスクラッチノイズを抑え込んだイコライズで収録されたものばかりでした。それは今回の「ANOTHER TAKE」でも同様なのですが、実はそのイコライズなしのアセテートを素直に収録した状態を聴かれた方はあまり多くないのではないでしょうか。そこで今回の初回リリース分に付属するのがそのアセテート状態そのままのバージョンなのです。
確かにアセテートですのでスクラッチノイズは頻繁に入ってしまいますが、それでも生のままのウォーミーな音質ならではの魅力があるのも確か。むしろその質感が新鮮に聴こえるのではとすら思えてしまいます。それらに加えて「ANOTHER SIDE~」期だけでなく、エレクトリック絶頂期である「HIGHWAY 61~」のレア音源まで収録されているのですから、初回オンリーのギフトとは思えないほど充実した内容はディラン・ファン大満足のCD-Rことを保証します。ぜひ初回分でこのアセテート音源も一緒にお楽しみください。
