Dylan was compiled and issued with little input from Bob Dylan himself, using outtakes drawn from the Self Portrait and New Morningrecording sessions. It followed the artist’s departure from Columbia for Asylum Records, and the much-hyped announcement of his first major tour since 1966. Subsequently, it was seen as a cash-in and even a “revenge” move by Columbia, diluting the Dylan market just two months before the release of Planet Waves, and using two outtakes from the odd and much-derided Self Portrait album. The remaining seven songs are actually New Morning outtakes.
Other November 19:
- Achtung Baby is the seventh studio album by rock band U2. It was produced by Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno, and was released on 19 November 1991 on Island Records. Stung by the criticism of their 1988 release Rattle and Hum, U2 shifted their musical direction to incorporate alternative rock, industrial, and electronic dance music influences into their sound. Thematically, the album is darker, more introspective, and at times more flippant than their previous work. Achtung Baby and the subsequent multimedia-intensive Zoo TV Tour were central to the group’s 1990s reinvention, which replaced their earnest public image with a more lighthearted and self-deprecating one.
- Bob Dylan and his “Rolling Thunder Revue” plays Memorial Auditorium, Worcester, Massachusetts.
A good “Audience” recording of the concert is in circualtion:
