The Bootleg Series Vol. 12 - The Cutting Edge 1965-1966 (2015)

This page is part of a list of original releases by release date of international commercially-released regular stereo Dylan albums. They do not contain rarities or obscurities and are not eligible for the Searching For A Gem list. Nevertheless, their interest value or scarcity means they're worth listing here - as far as I know some are not included on any other Internet site. Promo releases of regular albums are now listed here and no longer in the former yearly Promo sections.


The Real Royal Albert Hall 1966 Concert! (2016)

Stereo 150gm vinyl releases: Columbia 88985316001 (USA); Columbia/Sony Music 88985316001 (Europe); Barnes & Noble stereo 150gm vinyl release on blue vinyl: Columbia 88985320591 (USA), all 20 May 2016. CD releases: Columbia 88985308022 (USA); Columbia/Sony Music 88985308022 (Europe/Australia/New Zealand), all 20 May 2016; Sony Music SICP 4784 (Japan), 25 May 2016. A Deluxe Edition will not be released, just the standard CD and a vinyl release (which includes a digital download but not a CD). Thanks to Harold Lepidus for information that the album is also available as a 44.1 KHz/24 bit download from Neil Young's Pono Music web-site.

This is a second album of songs performed by Frank Sinatra, release date 20 May 2016 (USA/Europe), following on from Shadows In The Night in 2015. Bob was reported to be recording again at Capitol Studios, Hollywood, CA, in Feb 2016, but not recording new material for this second album (according to Japanese author Heckel Sugano who wrote the liner notes for the Japanese CD release below), but for later release. All these newly-released songs were recorded at the Shadows In The Night sessions, Capitol Studios, Hollywood, CA, Feb/Mar 2014. Thanks to Andreas Volkert and Fred Muller for finding the 1928 source photo for the front artwork. Andreas did some research on the playing cards depicted on the cover of Fallen Angels and contacted famous card magician and collector Lee Asher. He was kind enough to send the following information: "One of my fellow playing card colleagues, Mr. Toby Edwards, pleasantly informed me that the deck was made by the famous playing card manufacturer Andrew Dougherty (the same guy who made the famous Tally Ho decks which are still in production today). Furthermore, the name of the back design is called "Chinese Dragon Back No. 81". Mr. Edwards was able to source this fantastic information from a Dougherty wholesale price list No. 126, dated July 1st, 1911." The font used for the text is called Caslon Black.

Thanks also to Andreas for information about the boxing photo on the rear of the inner sleeve, which is of Jake LaMotta (the "Raging Bull") and Billy Fox at Madison Square Garden, New York, 14 Nov 1947. Please let me know if you know the name of either of the photographers.

On 15 Oct 2015 Bob surprised the audience at Braunschweig (Brunswick), Germany by performing Melancholy Mood! Melancholy Mood (Walter Schumann/Vick R. Knight Sr.), now released on this album, was the B-side of Frank Sinatra's first single in 1939 (Brunswick 8443)! The A-side was From The Bottom Of My Heart (Harry James/Andy Gibson/Billy Hays/Morty Beck). This single was on the US Brunswick label, and considering Bob, where he first performed the song is not likely to be a coincidence. Thanks to Hermann Rechberger, who was at the show, for the information, and also to Sonny Boy McFitzson.

The complete track listing is:

These two songs, not included on the album, were also recorded at the 2014 Shadows In The Night sessions:

Didn’t He Ramble (W C Handy/Robert Cole) - details of a recording by Frank required!
Stormy Weather (Harold Arlen/Ted Koehler) - now to be released on a triple album Triplicate of more Sinatra songs in Mar 2017!

On 4 Jun 2016 at Woodinville, WA, Bob premiered yet another Sinatra song, I Could Have Told You (Carl Sigman/Arthur Williams), recorded by Frank in 1954! I Could Have Told You will be released on a triple album Triplicate of more Sinatra songs in Mar 2017!
Thanks to Fred Muller for news that Bob recorded a video to mark Tony Bennett's 90th birthday at the WorkPlay Theater, Birmingham, AL, on Friday 28 Oct 2016. The video will be part of an NBC TV special, "Tony Bennett Celebrates 90: The Best Is Yet to Come" to be shown on 20 Dec 2016, which also includes performances by Aretha Franklin, Lady Gaga, Elton John, Billy Joel, Stevie Wonder and others. Bob couldn't attend the actual celebration, which was filmed at Radio City Music Hall, New York City, on 15 Sep 2016, but wished to be included, so he performed and filmed an unidentified song with his band at WorkPlay, with a technical crew and gear brought in for the occasion. The song turned out to be Frank Sinatra's Once Upon A Time. Once Upon A Time, written by Charles Strouse and Lee Adams, was recorded by Frank for his 1965 Reprise album September Of My Years. Once Upon A Time will also be released on the triple album Triplicate in Mar 2017!


Melancholy Mood 7" Stereo EPs:


Columbia 88985306777 (USA/UK) - picture from www.recordstoreday.com
This stereo EP on red vinyl released on Record Store Day, 16 Apr 2016, includes four tracks from the upcoming album Fallen Angels: Melancholy Mood; All Or Nothing At All; Come Rain Or Come Shine; That Old Black Magic. This was first on sale in Japan to mark Bob's tour in April 2016, see International Singles: All Formats 2010-. The cover photo (reversed) comes from a 1962 Japanese advertisement for a Shiseido Cosmetics face cream called "Creampact" featuring model Kyoko Anzai (also right). Thanks to Yoshihiko Satake for confirming this is not Emily Yoshida as previously reported.

Thanks to Éamonn Ó Catháin, Ed Ricardo, Sonny Boy McFitzson, Andreas Volkert and Fred Muller for information.


Vinyl  Releases


"Fallen Angels" - stereo vinyl test pressing: United Record Pressing, Nashville, TN, 2016:


Side 1 in generic sleeve, scan by Gerd Rundel (Side 2 is the same)
While the files for this record were mastered by Greg Calbi at Sterling Sound, and cut there by Ray Janos, Wes Garland at Nashville Record Productions cut Side 2 of the commercial release below. Apparently United Record Pressing (URP) of Nashville, TN, ruined the lacquer for side two and rather than spending the money to have Ray cut Side 2 again, Wes Garland was sent a CD (probably the commercial CD) and he re-cut from that. (Information from www.analogplanet.com found by Éamonn Ó Catháin.)

The test pressing shown was manufactured at URP. The record comes in an orange/brown card sleeve with cut-outs on both sides for the labels and has handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - AL88985-316001-RE1, Side 2 - BL88985-316001-RE1. It also has “RJ STERLING” on both sides of the vinyl ("RJ" is Ray Janos).

Thanks to Keith Venturoni and Gerd Rundel for information and scans.

The Limited Edition from Barnes & Noble in the USA has a unique catalogue number, Columbia 88985320591. There is a dark blue square sticker on the front of the shrink-wrap. The record comes on 150gm blue vinyl, not 140gm as in Europe, and has the regular commercial number 88985316001. It comes in the regular sleeve but a barcode sticker with “88985320591” is pasted at rear bottom left (however, “88985316001” is printed on the spine and at the bottom of the rear of the inner sleeve). There is an original price sticker at top right of the rear sleeve.

The album comes with an insert which has a download code on the rear. The record has handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - AL88985-316001-RE1, Side 2 - BL88985-36001-RE-2. There is also “RJ STERLING” on Side 1 and “WG/NRP” on Side 2. As stated above, Side 1 of the commercial release was mastered by Ray Janos at Sterling Sound, but Side 2 was mastered by Wes Garland at Nashville Record Productions (NRP)

The regular black vinyl release Columbia 88985316001 is also 150gm and copies have a circular red sticker on the front like the European copies. The inner sleeve, record labels and download code insert are exactly the same as those for the Barnes & Noble release. The handwritten matrix numbers have one small difference from those of the Barnes & Noble release: Side 1 - AL88985-316001-RE1, Side 2 - BL88985-36001-RE-3. There is again “RJ STERLING” on Side 1 and “WG/NRP” on Side 2.

Thanks to Erika and Gerd Rundel, Tim Prince and Sonny Boy McFitzson for information and pictures.

Columbia/Sony Music 88985308022 (Europe) - CD in jewel case with front sticker (my copy - Australia/New Zealand release has the same sticker)
The European CD release comes in a regular jewel case and has a round red sticker on the front of the shrink-wrap. The front insert is folded with the LP artwork on the outside and the LP inner sleeves on the inside. There are again no writer credits - for those see the top of the page. The CD comes in a black tray so the reverse of the rear insert is plain white.

The Australia/New Zealand release was made in Australia and has the same catalogue number as the European release. The round red front sticker is the same as the European sticker, although Fred Muller reports that his copy has the sticker attached to the jewel case, not the shrink-wrap. The front insert is the same as the European release, but the rear insert has a different format barcode and the "Sony Music" logo is more prominent in red and white instead of in the light blue background colour. Fred also points out that the spine text on the rear insert is printed vertically upwards, not vertically downwards as it is on the North American and European rear inserts.

"Fallen Angels" - CD release: Sony Music SICP 4784 (Japan), 25 May 2016:


Sony Music SICP 4784 (Japan) - front with obi, scan by Sonny Boy McFitzson
The Japanese CD release comes in a standard jewel case with a black CD tray - the reverse of the rear insert is plain white. There is no front sticker. The obi is white with black and red text and price ¥2,400. The release date is "16.5.25" (25 May 2016), the original release date is "16.5.20" (20 May 2016) and the withdrawal date is "16.11.24" (24 Nov 2016). As well as the worldwide front insert (a folded sheet), there is a Japanese booklet. The Japanese booklet has English lyrics and the translations, plus liner notes in two parts; the first by Heckel Sugano about what Bob said about the songs, the recording process for AARP, and how Al Schmitt created the tracks. According to this, the horns on Maybe You'll Be There are played by the same guys as on Shadows In The Night: Alan Kaplan (trombone), Francisco Torres (trombone), Dylan Hart (French horn). Stu Kimball played acoustic guitar and Donnie Herron acoustic mandolin on All or Nothing, although they are playing the song electrically in concert. Heckel also mentions in the liner notes that Dean Parks replaces Stu Kimball on It Had To Be You, Melancholy Mood, That Old Black Magic and Come Rain Or Come Shine. The second liner notes by Kenta Hagiwara are about the specific versions of the songs Bob has referred to on Fallen Angels (see the notes at the top of the page).
