Bob Dylan - Time Out Of Mind mp3 flac

Time Out of Mind is the 30th studio album by the American musician Bob Dylan, released on September 30, 1997, by Columbia Records. It was his first double studio album (on vinyl) since Self Portrait in 1970. It was also released as a single CD. For many fans and critics, the album marked Dylan's artistic comeback after he appeared to struggle with his musical identity throughout the 1980s; he had not released any original material for seven years, since Under the Red Sky in 1990

She looks at me, Says "I'd bring you some but we're out of 'm, you picked the wrong time to come" Then she says, "I know you're an artist, draw a picture of me!"

After spending much of the '90s touring and simply not writing songs, Bob Dylan returned in 1997 with Time Out of Mind, his first collection of new material in seven years. Where Under the Red Sky, his last collection of original compositions, had a casual, tossed-off feel, Time Out of Mind is carefully considered, from the densely detailed songs to the dark, atmospheric production

Released September 30, 1997. Time Out of Mind Tracklist. Dylan’s 1997 Time Out of Mind was his first collection of new material in some seven years, and the songs reflect his depression at the loss of his wife, Carolyn Dennis, through divorce. The songs are melancholy and resigned, but powerful.

Time Out of Mind feels like the antithesis of our pervasive need to have an opinion about everything all the time. It is a reflection on a life lived, not a reaction to someone else’s ideas. There’s a place for both, as Dylan’s own brash, youthful songs made clear a half-century ago. The difference is one of insight, of 55 years of life slowly distilled into wisdom. Everything won’t be alright, but desolation can be its own unlikely source of triumph. Dylan had a grief that gave him nowhere to go but the grave-or, as he did, onward.

Difficulty: intermediate. Bbdim A7 Em7 Lord I'm waist deep, waist deep in the mist. Bbdim A7 Em7 It's almost like, almost like I don't exist A7 G Em7 I'm 20 miles out of town, Cold Irons bound. The walls of pride is high and wide, can't see over to the other side It's such a sad thing to see beauty decay, it's sadder still to feel your heart torn away one look at you and I'm out of control like the universe has swallowed me whole I'm 20 miles out of town and Cold Irons.

Hystana
Mine is nearly perfect (which is uncommon with new pressings these days). The sound is excellent as well. Worth picking up.
Rrd
There seems to be some confusion about this release. To clarify: the main double LP is the same as the 2014 Music On Vinyl reissue, which is excellent. It's probably digitally sourced but that doesn't matter as it sounds great. The 7" is exclusive to this release. The LPs are really well pressed, too; a couple of minor imperfections but nothing serious and all in all it sounds great. Well worth going for.
Goktilar
They just used the MOV master, which propably isn't made from the original tape but a digital source.
Fountain_tenderness
I do not understand anything. Is it worth buying this 2017 reissue on vinyl or not? What is the sound quality of this LP? Honestly, I like the sound of the first CDs from 1997.
Jark
Not dark yet. One of the greatest pieces of all time.

Musicfreak98 It's definitely a legit pressing. I believe that Sony (or whoever owns the Dylan catalogue) loaned out the rights to Music On Vinyl for the first reissues of a lot of his albums but they've recently started rereleasing the Dylan catalogue on their own Legacy imprint using the plates that MOV made for their reissues, hence the same matrix details. Over the last couple of months they've rereleased a load of Dylan albums on Legacy and they all have the MOVLP matrix details, I have a few of them myself. How does your copy sound by the way? I need a copy of TOOM on vinyl and debating if I should go for this new one or the 2014 Music On Vinyl release. I would say go for this release as it appears to be the only one with the extra 7 inch record. The vinyl itself is exactly the same - same plates, pressed at the same plant. This release sounds great. Definitely nothing to be "irritated" about as somebody posted above.
Perilanim
It's not odd or fishy. Sony/Columbia and MOV share metal parts for lots of Dylan releases on vinyl.
Bolv
They sound exactly the same hence being irritated over this. But if this true then it clears up a thing or two.

MOVLP on deadwax. Doesn't say anything about music on vinyl on the cover or label. Bit odd.
Drelajurus
I've been in contact with music on vinyl and they said that they have nothing to do with this pressing..
Xinetan
So, I just picked up this reissue and I also have the original press. I just listened to "highlands" and "not dark yet" and compared the quality of the sound. Overall, I think they both sound great but I prefer original press instead of the reissue. On the original pressing the vocals sound more raw and up whereas the reissue sounds more like a CD. The sound quality is crisp and equally distributed. With that said I love that this got a legit reissue. My copy (cover and inner sleeves) was purchased thrashed and has looked like shit for years. It's nice to have one thats in good condition.
in waiting
Boy oh boy, if you review sound quality or a specific pressing always refer to the versions you review!"the reissue sounds more like a CD"
Siralune
I found a new copy of this online for a good price and I just received it in the mail. When I opened it I found much more debris than is typical. Instead of small pieces of paper, it seemed like thick animal hair and it almost covered the records. While brushing the hair off I was even more dismayed to see that there appeared to be significant scratching on the records. I put the first side on my table and the sounds was even worse than expected with loud sustained crackles every rotation. I am hoping it was just a bad copy - but this is by far the worst new record experience I have ever had.

I could go on and on about this album ... all I'll say is, I've been waiting a long time for a tune like 'Highlands.' Bob has found his vision again, through the simple act of self exploration, questioning himself and the nature of his being. I've been waiting to write about this release until the man had a couple more under his belt. Now that he has, and the two that followed this release are as strong as ever, I'm going to give you the chance to read an overview of the meaning behind the song 'Highland' which I did for my Psych Class. My paper was much more in depth, sighting references which I have omitted here. I'm sure that anyone into Mr. Dylan will be able to pick up on what I'm suggesting.Well my heart's in the Highlands gentle and fairHoneysuckle blooming in the windowed airBluebelles blazing, where the Aberdeen waters flowWell my heart's in the Highland,I'm gonna go there when I feel good enough to goWindows were shakin' all night in my dreams [‘Windows’ is a common reference by Bob. Widows can be eyes on the world, or a separation from the world ... as in his most famous window line, ‘The windows are all filled with frost.’ From the album John Wesly Harding.]Everything was exactly the way that it seems [there is nothing to be interrupted from his current vantage point, he sees himself and the world as he and it actually are]Woke up this morning and I looked at the same old page [a reference to his life, and a line used from ‘My Back Pages] Same ol' rat race [the fact that the music business and especially his constant touring are not as exciting as he once thought it all was, or as exciting as the audience may think it is]Life in the same ol' cage. [Bob has made his bed and now he is finally learning to live and sleep in it]I don't want nothing from anyone, ain't that much to take [All those that he once held as heroes, those who could be looked to for the path aren’t really what they’re cracked up to be, because they’re all just trying to make their own way through life. Another reason for him to tell his audience that his songs are for him, they belong to him, and should not be taken as a path to be followed] Wouldn't know the difference between a real blonde and a fake [Here he is saying that he has often been fooled, knowing what’s real and what isn’t is not that important, it’s just enjoying what one sees, everything can be fake or real from moment to moment, so don’t go holding truth too tightly, it will fool you.]Feel like a prisoner in a world of mysteryI wish someone would come And push back the clock for me [As with all people who have gotten older, most wish they could turn back time, but always with the perspective of being young again and knowing what an older, wiser man knows.]Well my heart's in the Highlands wherever I roamThat's where I'll be when I get called homeThe wind, it whispers to the buck eyed trees in rhymeWell my heart's in the Highland,I can only get there one step at a time.I'm listening to Neil Young, I gotta turn up the sound [Bob has mentioned in interviews the fact that Neil has some great lyrics, but it’s Neil’s sound that carries him away.]Someone's always yelling turn it down [A reference to turn down the volume, in other words his concerts have become more rock and roll, and to return to the audience the splendid lyrics Bob was initially know for, but Bob, he’s just gonn’a turn up the sound anyway because this is where he is now.]Feel like I'm driftingDrifting from scene the sceneI'm wondering what in the devil could it all possibly mean? [Bob has been around for so long, seen so much, and filly shrugging it all off, inferring that he has no idea what all of it ‘life’ actually means or is about.]Insanity is smashing up against my soul [Bob’s visions vs his heart, or the higher power he feels exists.]You can say I was on anything but a roll [While Bob was never out of step with his audience, he certainly was out of fashion. In other words, he kept on producing but he wasn’t rolling out the songs or images as before, or perhaps the audience was not adept enough to see his visions.]If I had a conscience, well I just might blow my top [This is a reference to telling, primarily interviewers, to shut up with their stupid questions, and that if he cared enough he’d just tell them off.]What would I do with it anyway Maybe take it to the pawn shop [Here he’s asking what would it matter if he told them all off and spoke the truth, he’s got more to lose and nothing to gain by opening up. The legend, the mystery is worth far more then any revelation of actual truth.]My heart's in the Highlands at the break of dawnBy the beautiful lake of the Black SwanBig white clouds, like chariots that swing down lowWell my heart's in the HighlandsOnly place left to go [Bob has been everywhere, done everything, experienced truth, lies, fabrications, beauty, success, and sadness, all that’s left is what’s on or not on the other side of life.]I'm in Boston town, in some restaurant [A reference to his early days in Boston and Cambridge University. The reference to restaurant is a way of looking at life, the comings and goings and the sustenace that feeds us.]I got no idea what I want [He has no idea what he can gain from looking back, non the less, he’s looking at his early days, trying to figure what he’s trying to figure out.]Well, maybe I do but I'm just really not sure [Again, he’s saying that in his heart or his soul he may know just what he’s looking for, but he’s not ready to admit to himself yet.]Waitress comes over [The waitress is Bob, the waitress is Bob’s alter ego or subconscious, in other words he is facing himself.] Nobody in the place but me and her [Just Bob alone with his thoughts.]It must be a holiday, there's nobody around [Bob taking a break, a time for reflection, a day off from the world around him.]She studies me closely as I sit down [He looks at himself with consideration.]She got a pretty face and long white shiny legs [A reference to Bob’s beautiful youth, the fact that he represented both male and female values and virtues.]She says, "What'll it be?" [Here Bob verbally confronts himself, asking, ‘OK, you’re here, you’ve come this far, what is it you’re here for.]I say, "I don't know, you got any soft boiled eggs?" [This has a double meaning. First it probably refers to the fact that he wishes he could be tougher, with an outer shell for protection, holding his obviously softer, actual self safe and in tact. Secondly, it may have a reference to the act of throwing eggs at performers who were not sincere of just bad.]She looks at me, Says "I'd bring you somebut we're out of 'm, you picked the wrong time to come" [Here she/Bob realizes that he’s not going to get any relief or protection today, that he’s opened this door, the door to the restaurant, and needs to see just what’s cooking.]Then she says, "I know you're an artist, draw a picture of me!"I say, "I would if I could, but, I don't do sketches from memory." [Here she/Bob is admitting that he’s an artist, that he’s achieving success again, but it’s been so long that he hardly knows how to handle himself, this adulation feels like a memory.]"Well", she says, "I'm right here in front of you, or haven't you looked?"I say," all right, I know, but I don't have my drawing book!"She gives me a napkin, she says, "you can do it on that"I say, "yes I could but, I don't know where my pencil is at!" [With these lines she/Bob is trying to convince himself that he has talent and at the same time is making excuses to keep from admitting the fact. Perhaps the idea of admitting or embracing the fact would mean that he could to be hurt if he opens up and is rejected by his audience which he both embraces and holds at arms length at the same time.]She pulls one out from behind her earShe says "all right now, go ahead, draw me, I'm standing right here"I make a few lines, and I show it for her to seeWell she takes a napkin and throws it back And says "that don't look a thing like me!"I said, "Oh, kind miss, it most certainly does"She says, "you must be jokin.'" I say, "I wish I was!" [Bob finally sees himself, wants to deny it, but in the same breath has to shake his head and admit that what he is seeing is the truth and is as real as it’s going to get.]Then she says, "you don't read women authors, do you?"Least that's what I think I hear her say,"Well", I say, "how would you know and what would it matter anyway?""Well", she says, "you just don't seem like you do!"I said, "you're way wrong."She says, "which ones have you read then?" I say, "I read Erica Jong!" [Bob is being challenged by himself and as he does with interviewers, he steps back into his mode and waves them off with misdirection, and the fact that only he knows what he does or doesn’t do.]She goes away for a minute and I slide up out of my chairI step outside back to the busy street, but nobody's going anywhere [It’s as if Bob, standing in front of the mirror, shakes his head or rubs his eyes, to bring himself back to the surface and put all of these thoughts behind him.]Well my heart's in the Highlands, with the horses and houndsWay up in the border country, far from the townsWith the twang of the arrow and a snap of the bowMy heart's in the Highlands Can't see any other way to goEvery day is the same thing out the door [Bob is just going through the motions of life, the motions of being Bob Dylan.] Feel further away then ever before [He feels further and further away from himself and who he actually is]Some things in life, it gets too late to learn [Admitting that the past can’t be changed, and by the time a person gets to the point of realizing this, it’s usually too late ... but he obviously doesn’t feel it’s too late or he wouldn’t have made this album.]Well, I'm lost somewhere I must have made a few bad turns [Admitting that one is lost, or that one has made a few bad turns is to admit that one has found their way and has also made some really positive good turns as well.]I see people in the park forgetting their troubles and woesThey're drinking and dancing, wearing bright colored clothesAll the young men with their young women looking so goodWell, I'd trade places with any of them In a minute, if I could [Again the dream of being young, seeing how beautiful he and his life were, wishing he could go back in time to his youth, not the present youth in the 21st Century the image would suggest. In other words he doesn’t want to be young today, he wants to be young again in his own time.]I'm crossing the street to get away from a mangy dog [Bob is the ‘mangy dog’ he is trying to get away from himself.]Talking to myself in a monologue [This song is his monologue]I think what I need might be a full length leather coat [Again, the full length leather coat would offer him protection, covered from head to toe.]Somebody just asked me If I registered to vote [This may be Bob decision to finally admit that he should get involved in politics, do his part with the voice he has, extend his visions beyond himself.]The sun is beginning to shine on me [The sun represents the success of his new album, his great band and most successful tour.]But it's not like the sun that used to be [Bob is saying that the success is not like that of his early days, but it’s success non the less, so why not embrace it.]The party's over, and there's less and less to say [Not an actual party, just his seat at the head of the table as he asks what can he possibly have to say that is of any relevance or that anyone would care to hear.]I got new eyes Everything looks far away [Bob is saying that, yes he can see, but all that he held dear, all that he thought had value and meaning looks so distant because all that matters at the end of ones life is the joy of living, just being alive.]Well, my heart's in the Highlands at the break of dayOver the hills and far awayThere's a way to get there, and I'll figure it out somehowBut I'm already there in my mind And that's good enough for now [Here Bob is saying that ‘I’m fine, right where I am. I can’t change anything, and the look see into my soul has been insightful.]*** The Fun Facts: As to the historical meaning of the album's title, Time Out of Mind means TIME IMMEMORIAL. Strictly speaking, 'time immemorial' is any time before 1199, this being the date set in 1275 as the time before which no one could remember, and therefore no legal cases could deal with events before that date. 'Time out of mind,' recorded from the fifteenth century, is just the plain English version of the same thing. Since the eighteenth century at least, 'time immemorial' has been used in much the same way as the 'Mists of time' and both expressions are now often used vaguely to mean little more than 'in the past.'Review by Jenell Kesler

This is a very good pressing. Not sure how it compares to the original since that one is way out of my price range but I can't imagine it sounding much better. Recommended reissue.
Grosho
Thanks for the response. Understandable that the original sounds the best. But nice that the reissue is a worthy stand in.

So, I just picked up this reissue and I also have the original press. I just listened to "highlands" and "not dark yet" and compared the quality of the sound. Overall, I think they both sound great but I prefer original press instead of the reissue. On the original pressing the vocals sound more raw and up whereas the reissue sounds more like a CD. The sound quality is crisp and equally distributed. With that said I love that this got a legit reissue. My copy (cover and inner sleeves) was purchased thrashed and has looked like shit for years. It's nice to have one thats in good condition.

Dylan continuing the bluesy feeling of the previous three albums, but finally with some originals. I knew this was good on the first listen, but it took me a few listens to realise what a great album this is, a must for any Dylan fans

A good album but overproduced. At times you just want to tell it to calm down and speak to you normally.
Ttyr
maybe you have the reissue. I got the reissue version and it was definitely too hot. I'm really curious about the original pressing

This is Dylan's 30th album issued in 1997, and the second album produced by Daniel Lanois just after "Oh Mercy" (1989). When one listens to it for the very first time, it might sound strange and not easily accesible, although according to Clinton Heylin it sounds like a Lanois CV. Actually, as Dylan explained it in an interview in Guitar World Magazine, the main goal was "to make a record that sounds like a record played on a record player", and it just works out. Strong bluesy numbers included here ("Love sick", "Million miles", "Cold irons bound" for instance) and undisputabely some of the most beautiful ballads ever written by Dylan ("Standing in the doorway" and the famous "Not dark yet"). What is remarkable here is the beauty of the lyrics poetry and the outstanding beauty of the music itself. Among the very best musicians in the world took part in this masterpiece, featuring Cindy Cashdollar, Duke Robillard, Jim Keltner etc. The album was isssued on Vinyl LPs (out of print now) and CD (still available) and the sound is extremely different: paradoxically rough on vinyl format and clean on CD format; i think it's better and accurate on LP. Sometimes an artist is able to misjudge his own work: Dylan told his dissatisfaction about the final result. Nevertheless, "Time out of mind" is a genuine masterpiece: the album won 3 Grammy awards including 1998 best album of the year, it was ranked #1 in the "Village Voice" 1997 Critics' Poll, and made "Uncut" magazine's Album of the year. It ranked #408 in the RS 500 Greatest Albums of All Time and is mentionned in the All-TIME 100 Albums. All these awards it did truly desserve.
