There are plenty of stories about how Dylan and Lanois clashed in the studio over the sound of Time Out of Mind and Lanois’ approach to production.

The compilation includes a remix of the original Time Out of Mind album, outtakes, alternate versions and live recordings. This set gets it right, consisting as it does of well over 60 minute discs but it also has more impact focussing on one album.Prior to its release, Dylan had been plagued by ill health – a life-threatening respiratory infection caused by inhaling fungus spores, which he put down to riding his Harley in the Louisiana swamps. Dylan's performances of Tryin' to Get to Heaven and Not Dark Yet are subtle and sad, difficult to deliver quietly live.

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. And the final Tell Tale Signs disc, well I can see why it’s here it adds a piece to the journey of the songs on Time Out of Mind. When I heard that a box set based on Time Out of Mind was imminent, I went back to the original album with fresh ears. I felt that his voice, which was at one of it's least easy on the ears stages in the mid-1990s, was being propped up, or glossed over, by the production.With that in mind, the first disc in this 5CD offering is a new 2022 remix of the original release, by engineer, Michael Brauer, who says he was trying to capture something that had more of a feel of what was going on in the room, with less additional processing. Disc four presents songs from Time Out of Mind in a series of spectacular live performances from 1998-2001. 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. Disc five is a bonus disc containing all Time Out Of Mind related tracks that were previously available on The Bootleg Series Vol. So in conclusion, I am glad I bought it, it offers more than I thought, although the inclusion of CD 5 is annoying if you bought the deluxe Tell Tale Signs.
