The CAT Club and route present ‘BLOOD ON THE TRACKS’ by BOB DYLAN.
October 13 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm£15
THE NEW YORK VERSION
To mark the inaugural National Album Day, The CAT Club will be holding a Saturday matinee event with a rare version of a classic album, a book launch and a very special guest.
We welcome leading Dylan authority CLINTON HEYLIN for the worldwide launch of his new monograph NO ONE ELSE COULD PLAY THAT TUNE – THE MAKING AND UNMAKING OF DYLAN’S 1974 MASTERPIECE and the playing of the New York version of Bob Dylan’s seminal album, Blood on the Tracks.
Bob Dylan originally recorded Blood on the Tracks mainly acoustically in New York but, as the release of the album was imminent, he rerecorded 5 of the songs with a band in a studio in Minneapolis that had a very different feel. Not for the first time there are many who think the man himself made the wrong decision. We will be playing the original New York version.
The record will play after a presentation from Clinton. In synchronicity with other National Album Day events taking place across the country, needle drop time is 3:33pm.
Entrance to the launch is £15 and includes a free copy of the book.
