Der neue Remix 2022*****, vom Magier Bob Dylan gewünscht, weil er unzufrieden mit dem aus dem Jahr 1997 war, lässt die Finsternis zurück und die Stimme klingt wie ein Rabe der in der warmen Morgensonne in der Mitte des Geschehens steht und seine alten Geschichten vorträgt die wir alle kennen, denn "Lieder sind wie Gedanken, einen Moment lang können sie die heroische Illusion vermitteln, man könne die Zeit anhalten". Critics even suggested it might be the final great Bob Dylan album – it wasn’t of course, but, as it turned out, Time Out of Mind, was the last album Dylan made with a producer – all his records since have been self-produced, under the pseudonym Jack Frost. I don't know if they're entirely audience recordings or a combination of sources but I would have far preferred professionally recorded versions.

Like all of the stories surrounding the creation of Bob Dylan albums, this one bears traces of myth and marketing. For the brooding and bluesy Time Out of Mind – Dylan wrote the songs while snowbound on his Minnesota farm in the winter of 1996 – Daniel Lanois was at the controls. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Disc 1 is a new mix of the original album, with a less gloomy feel, and bringing Dylan's feral growl right up front in your living room. They decamped instead to Criteria Studio in Miami, a space with a hallowed history ( Aretha Franklin’s Young, Gifted and Black, the Allman Brothers’ Eat a Peach) and the ambiance of an airport security detention center.

Back cover variant to Fragments (Time Out Of Mind Sessions (1996-1997)), with three label logos instead of two.

If “Not Dark Yet” sounded like it was in the beginning stages of evaporation, “Mississippi” felt like fumes itself—far too ethereal and light for Time Out of Mind.He reportedly felt haunted by Buddy Holly, and in tribute, he created his own ghostly version of the Crickets, pulling from his touring lineup, session-player royalty, and beyond. Sessions stretched to 10 hours while Lanois drove Dylan to try “Not Dark Yet” again in E-flat, then in B-flat, until Dylan finally snapped, “If you haven’t got it now, you ain’t getting it. And the extra sides of outtakes from the convoluted sessions that produced this gem are equally as compelling. It includes such iconic songs as “Love Sick”, “Not Dark yet” and “Make You Feel My Love”, which became a modern standard after it was covered by artists as wide ranging as Billy Joel, Garth Brooks and of course Adele. Considering the often sombre and spectral mood of Time Out of Mind, it’s fascinating to hear how in some cases the different takes are much more upbeat and lighter than the final recordings.
