Amnesty International commemorates its 50th anniversary with the release of an album featuring the cream of the world’s music talent covering Bob Dylan songs, with contributions from a huge variety of artists including Adele, Patti Smith, Pete Townshend, Ke$ha, The Gaslight Anthem, Sting, Jackson Browne, Elvis Costello, Sinéad O’Connor, Kris Kristofferson, Bad Religion, Marianne Faithfull, My Chemical Romance, Bryan Ferry, Pete Seeger and many more. Entitled Chimes of Freedom: Songs of Bob Dylan the album features 73 tracks on four CDs.
This superb 3 CD set was originally released by Doberman, who professionally manufactured the inserts & booklets. With the original issued package, the discs were CD-r's with very nice paper labels. Doberman had released only glass mastered titles in the past, and some of their newest releases are once again appearing on glass mastered CDs. The three CDs were then pressed by the wonderful people at Scorpio, who released them on 24kt gold discs. The discs carry a take off of the MFSL gold disc logo.
Time Out of Mind was a legitimate comeback, Bob Dylan's first collection of original songs in nearly ten years and a risky rumination on mortality, but its sequel, Love and Theft, is his true return to form, not just his best album since Blood on the Tracks, but the loosest, funniest, warmest record he's made since The Basement Tapes…
I don't think any of you need to be told of the legend that is Bob Dylan, and despite the fact he's been recording music for almost 60 years now he continues to work on new material. His thirty-eighth studio album "Triplicate", will also be the very first triple album from Dylan. The project will be released by Columbia Records & Sony Music Entertainment on CD, Vinyl and all digital Retailers.Like Dylan's previous two studio albums, Triplicate features covers of classic American songs. The album will be Dylan's first three-disc album, featuring thirty songs across its three discs, each individually titled and presented in a thematically-arranged 10-song sequence.In reference to the album, Dylan has stated: I am finding these great songs to be a tremendous source of inspiration that has led me to one of my most satisfying periods in the studio. I've hit upon new ways to uncover and interpret these songs that are right in line with the best recordings of my own songs, and my band and I really seemed to hit our stride on every level with Triplicate.
