"D-Sides" : THE WEEKEND MIX
As promised, something very Zimmy for you all.
I admit, it's very random.
Back in the days of music retail, my partner and I, on particularly slow release weeks....you know what I'm talking about...the weeks when the biggest record to hit Tuesday was either a budget April Wine compilation or the 504th Wynton Marsalis CD...would create something "new" and quite possibly "wrong," hoping to make rent with something unique. People had stopped buying CDs thanks to the $18.99 list price being slapped on most of the popular CDs and we just couldn't pay the....OKAY! Sorry.
Here is something we put together, gathering about 20 of Dylan's stray tracks. Tributes, soundtrack tracks, b-sides, ACCEPTANCE SPEECHES...you name it. We grabbed'em and compiled'em and for a little while, we sold'em. A whole lot of'em.
If nothing else, it's a great listen.
