Audio: Bob Dylan’s ‘Blonde On Blonde’ New York Sessions — Left On the Cutting Room Floor

On October 5, 1965 Bob Dylan began recording Blonde On Blonde at Columbia Recording Studios, Studio A in New York.

Off and on through January 27, 1965 Dylan and a bunch of musicians that included The Band made many recordings. Most of them didn’t make it onto Blonde On Blonde. After that Dylan headed for Nashville where the bulk of the album was cut.

Below are some of the New York versions recorded. I’m obsessed with Blonde On Blonde, so I find all of these fascinating.
