"Blood On The Tracks" - 12" stereo test pressing, Columbia/Legacy 19015931221 (USA/Europe), 13 Apr 2019:


Columbia/Legacy 19015931221 (USA) - picture found by Bob Meyer
Thanks to Fred Muller and Bob Meyer for news that the 1974 Blood On The Tracks test pressing will be released on vinyl on Record Store Day, 13 Apr 2019. This will be an exact reproduction of the 1974 disc with the original mixes (not included on the Deluxe Edition of The Bootleg Series Vol. 14 - More Blood, More Tracks in 2018, almost certainly deliberately) and be limited to 7500 copies worldwide. This will be the first time that the award-winning liner notes by Pete Hamill will actually describe the takes that are on the album!
