Get the SACDs only if you have a SACD player. Otherwise just get the regular editions, because without the SACD player theres really no reason to pay the extra $. Its like spending extra money for a DVD that has features in HD and surround sound, but your watching it on a tv without those features. Pat Garrett has Knocking on Heavens Door, but the rest is mostly instrumental. The Basement Tapes are definitley worth getting, As for why certain albums are or aren't in SACD I'm not sure what the record companies criteria are for choosing. Maybe they don't think theres enough demand for those particular albums in SACD, I personally have no idea. I still want to know why The 1973 "Dylan" album is out of print and so damn hard to find (other then the fact that its widely regarded as one of his worst)

"Blood On The Tracks" should be the first CD you buy - in whatever format.

I can't really ward you off from ANY Dylan albums. They're all great - with the exception of, perhaps, albums like "Self Portrait" (although I can't speak from experience on that one, as I don't own it. I've only read stuff about it not being all that "good").

I have the regular CD's. They sound good to me! You will also need to buy "Biograph", and the three live "bootleg" sets that have been coming out sporadically for the past 7-8 years.

The Bootleg Series, YES. Emphatically. These are all excellent compilations.
Good luck even finding Dylan. It was cancelled or something, but it went out of print a long time ago.
Definitely NOT Dylan and the Dead or At Budokan. These are unlistenable.
Before the Flood isn't bad, but Dylan shouted the whole tour, he sure wasn't singing.
I like Hard Rain and the 30th Anniversary Concert, but they are not vital. Hard Rain is the more vital of the two, because Dylan's seething.
Biograph is worth a look at.
I don't think I've ever heard Real Live, so I cant help you with that one.
Since MTV Unplugged is available on DVD, I'd recommend getting that instead, because I always get the a/v version versus the strictly audio one, when the choice is offered.

I'd also recommend seeing Dont Look Back and the recent No Direction Home biography, if you haven't already.

By the way, I really don't think Saved, Knocked Out Loaded, Under the Red Sky, Down in the Groove or Empire Burlesque are worth buying, because each one has maybe one decent song on it. Emp. Bur. isn't so bad, but it REALLY suffers from nauseating '80's production.

No biggie! Happens more often that you'd think. I figure I must "talk" like a guy.

I don't think so. It was a single, and as far as I know, it's only release was as such.


I woke up this mornin',
There were tears in my bed.
They killed a man I really loved
Shot him through the head.
Lord, Lord,
They cut George Jackson down.
Lord, Lord,
They laid him in the ground.

Sent him off to prison
For a seventy-dollar robbery.
Closed the door behind him
And they threw away the key.
Lord, Lord, They cut George Jackson down.
Lord, Lord,
They laid him in the ground.

He wouldn't take shit from no one
He wouldn't bow down or kneel.
Authorities, they hated him
Because he was just too real.
Lord, Lord,
They cut George Jackson down.
Lord, Lord,
They laid him in the ground.

Prison guards, they cursed him
As they watched him from above
But they were frightened of his power
They were scared of his love.
Lord, Lord,
So they cut George Jackson down.
Lord, Lord,
They laid him in the ground.

Sometimes I think this whole world
Is one big prison yard.
Some of us are prisoners
The rest of us are guards.
Lord, Lord,
They cut George Jackson down.
Lord, Lord,
They laid him in the ground.
