Audio: Bob Dylan Wraps Up ‘Blood On The Tracks,’ Records ‘Tangled Up In Blue’ – Dec. 30, 1974

On December 30, 1974, Bob Dylan wrapped up work at Sound 80 Studios in Minneapolis, rerecording three songs for Blood On The Tracks.

That day Dylan tried one more time to nail “Tangled Up In Blue,” “Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts” and “If You See Her, Say Hello.”

Clearly he was pleased with the outcome, as those were the takes that ended up on the album.

(According to Clinton Heylin, Dylan may have recorded “Meet Me In The Morning” that day too.)
