Bob Dylan was at several crossroads in the mid-1970s. Artistically, he was largely written off as being past his prime. Emotionally, he was suffering through a painful divorce from his then-wife Sara Lowndes. Creatively, he appeared at a stalemate, his previous decade's unprecedented run of transformational brilliance finished. Then came Blood on the Tracks.

A start-to-finish cycle that documents a lover's pursuit of, entanglement with, and loss of a woman, the bracingly intimate 1975 effort remains one of the most encompassing break-up albums ever made and ranks as the most personal statement of the Bard's career. To hear it is to experience the agony, frustration, trauma, highs, lows, confusion, sadness, and, ultimately, requisite redemption associated with intimate relationships gone astray. Dylan maintains it's a work of fiction, but it's evident close-vested autobiographical premise is what helps make it universal: It's the icon singing through tears, going out of his mind, battling hallowing emptiness, firing shots across the bow, and accepting culpability. It is, in short, a consummate expression of love's darker sides and the consequences of what happens when dreams unravel.

As part of its Bob Dylan catalog restoration series, Mobile Fidelity is thoroughly humbled to have the privilege of mastering the iconic LP from the original master tapes and pressing it on dead-quiet LPs at RTI. The end result is the very finest, most transparent analog edition of Blood on the Tracks ever produced-and the first-ever proper analog reissue. Fantastically presenting both the solo acoustic and band-supported songs with the utmost clarity, dynamics, presence, immediacy, spaciousness, imaging, and balance, this version shines a high-powered light on the fluid vocal phrasing, timbral shifts, functional rhythms, and inward-looking strumming that contribute to every song here serving as a wound-exposing confessional.

Odd Mastering Job

I continue to have very strange problems with MoFi pressings. The top end is fatiguing and unnatural. It's just not a happening reissue. It's another in a long string of disappointing MoFi albums. The QC is all over the map, my The Band record is dull and (for some odd reason) completely low-end heavy. The Bitches Brew LP is awful. It's a real shame!!

I have to agree with a lot of the reviewers. This is my favorite Dylan album, and I love Dylan. It is also another MoFi that I also own the original. In every case, the original is better. In this case, not really close. Though my Abbey Road is the worse. My original is a Columbia from 1977. Thin vinyl, but as most of you know, that really doesn't make much difference on sound quality of a pressing. Hey, I love MoFi, terrific packaging, thick sexy vinyl, and access to some vinyl we just can't get otherwise. But the fact is the MoFi pressings are, in general, subdued. I am a fan of MoFi, but they are different than the originals. I seem to always prefer the original, and I want to like the MoFi going in. I am grateful they are out there. But do not think they are the reference.

Stupendous pressing of a stupendous album. Unless you've got a pristine copy of the original release you need this in your collection. Essential.


Been waiting for this one

This is by far my favorite Dylan album. This is without question the best pressing of BOTT I've ever heard. The bass is finally sharp and defined. The imaging and soundstage are crisp and expansive. I hate to use an already overused cliche, but the musicians are in the room with you.

Nothing too fancy, no 45 RPM, no 200g pressing, just incredibly well done mastering and HQ manufacturing process.

It's worth $60, and a bargain at $30


A must buy.

If you're a fan of this album then this pressing is the one to own. MFSL has been on a roll lately and this is another great addition to their catalog.
