Guam Thunder Acid Project 043, CD1/2 OF 9]

Captain Acid noted:

I was planing to do this one for a long time. It took lot’s of time to finish it. I did the usual things, phase, level, speed (where necessary) correction and EQ. The main problem was that there was too much bass on some tracks and vocals were down in the mix, i tried to deal with that with EQ. In the end i worked on this nine-disc version, mostly. But It had some micro gaps on some tracks on the first two discs. The same thing was with the six-disc version. I patched those from “Going, Going, Guam” (I did not want to work on that one because it was already remastered). Discs 4 and 5 were bit distorted, so i took those tracks from the dolphinsmile share on Electric Ladyland.

On Disc 9 Tracks 27 - 30 are from sessions with Eric Clapton.(From bootleg “Happy B Erik”). Track 30 is from Clapton bootleg “No Reason To Cry Demos”.

No noisereduction, compression or limiting was done by me.

Original notes:

These comments were authored by others: “The track listing is approximate as it is a rehearsal. Sometimes verses (and even phrases) are practiced, so where one track finishes and another starts is fairly arbitrary. There is a female singing backup vocals. It is not Joan Baez so I presume it is Donna Weiss. The versions of Just Like a Woman and Tangled up in Blue are very interesting. They are clearly practicing the version of Tangled that was performed at Ft Collins. It has interesting tempo changes with each verse and Dylan systematically works through each verse to get a rhythm he is happy with.

Unfortunately the version of Just Like a Woman (with similar tempo changes) only gets one live performance at Salt Lake City and there is no circulating tape of that show. Exact numbers of takes of particular songs are essentially arbitrary, because Dylan sometimes stopped songs to repeat passages with problems, sometimes completed songs and returned to problem spots. Dylan also occasionally sang, hummed, or played a short portion of the opening of a song before trying a full version; those fragments are not listed separately. This project initially circulated without a specific title.

  2. Timely post, in that today Dylan released Rough and Rowdy Ways. It’s his first album of all new material in 10 years and has received universally good reviews.

  4. Please ignore all the off-topic comments below!

  5. Bob Dylan’s ‘Hurricane” is still widely regarded as the truth. Bob hasn’t performed it in years, probably because there’s a lot of very solid evidence that Carter & his pal were guilty. Go here For Cal Deal and the Hurricane story:
    Dylan sang, “We live in a land where justice is a game.” Yes, it’s a “political world.” And “the world is ruled by violence, but that’s better left unsaid.” We are taught not to rush to judgement, that one is innocent until proven guilty, and that mobs with torches are dangerous…that trying to placate the mob by self-flagellation will only show weakness and lead to more people taking advantage and playing whatever race card or blackmail card will get them the power they crave.

  16. Finding out that about Bob has been hard for me to accept . Real fuckin hard . Keep hopin somebody will tell me it ain’t really true . That he was adopted or some shit like that . The only thing worse would be to find out he was a hi Yeller . I’d quit listening to him if that was the case

    By Derrick on Jun 20, 2020

  17. Many thanks….again.

    By Canute on Jun 20, 2020

  18. As my copy of ‘Rough and Rowdy Ways’ arrived this morning this is a great celebration for the new album.

    Thanks Big O, always enjoy some more Bobby but the new album is truly extraordinary and as someone has said somewhere else it is like delving into a good book . . . . .

    By Claude Balls on Jun 21, 2020

  28. Looking forward to the rest of the sessions. 1976 was a great year for fans of both Dylan and Neil Young/Crazy Horse. Arguably both at the top of their games ‘live’.

    By Johnny A on Jun 22, 2020

  29. Can this website delete all of the racist and anti-semitic comments beneath posts please?

    I will cease to support or recommend bigO if i have to continue to wade through this garbage.
