Bob Dylan fans are in for a special treat with the January 27th release Fragments – Time Out of Mind Sessions (1996-1997): The Bootleg Series Vol.17. The new five-CD or 10-LP set includes a newly-remixed version of the Grammy Award winning 1997 Time Out Of Mind album by famed engineer Michael Brauer, accompanied by no less than three other discs of alternate versions, outtakes, live takes, and a bonus disc including previously released material from the critically acclaimed The Bootleg Series Vol. 8: Tell Tale Signs: Rare and Unreleased 1989–2006.
Both fans and media alike have always asked Bob Dylan his thoughts on the state of the world and life in general. A while back, during an interview with ABC’s 20/20, he tried to sum up some type of philosophy that suited the way he lived: “‘Don’t know if its’s gonna stop or not stop. I don’t take anything for granted. You can only do so much, y’know? Who knows what’s lurking behind the corner at any time (that) may come up? So, we can have these big plans and dreams, but there’s no guarantee that any of it is gonna come off. I just go from day-to-day and keep at it.”
