Bobby's Best Blood

What to pick for the "Post 71" album? There were two great albums with The Band in '74: studio (Planet Waves) or live (Before The Flood), but lets's jump ahead for what is now considered a Top 5 disc by Bobby.

And that would be the album that everybody refers to as "the breakup album," with ties to his disolving marriage to Sara. Not so fast, the composer doth protest: It's based on Anton Chekov short stories. Whatever. There's no denying that several of the songs rival "Positively 4th St" as slap-in-the-face tirades.

Even the album had a checkered history. Recorded in New York City in September, 1974 (as noted) and set to be issued around Christmastime. That is until Bobby's brother David heard the pre-release acetate. Too dark, he exclaimed. So David set up recording sessions in Minneapolis to redo five songs (as noted). Some have different lyrics and "Idiot Wind" was radically changed. The New York versions of those recordings have since became part of Sony/Legacy's Bootleg series (Vol 14: More Blood, More Tracks).

And then there was the fiasco with Pete Hamill's liner notes. After critics lambasted them, Columbia revised the back cover to eliminate them. Then, the fine folks at The Grammys© awarded Hamill "Best Liner Notes." Columbia was forced to reinstate them. A tip for collectors: black text liner notes: original issue; white liner notes: third issue. Details here .
