Bob Dylan vinyl released for Record Store Day 2015

Bob Dylan has taken part in Record Store Day 2015 – releasing two vinyl versions of The Basement Tapes and The Night We Called It A Day.

The international event is in support of independent record stores and labels with dozens of top artists making releases.

Dylan’s UK contribution is limited to the 7” track from latest album Shadows In The Night with Stay With Me as the B Side. There’s also a video to accompany Night We Called It A Day, which is on YouTube below, and chalks up another hit for themes of violence in Dylan’s music in recent years.

The U.S. releases are  The Basement Tapes (180g mono) Other Peoples Music 12″ 2500 and The Basement Tapes Other Peoples Music 12″ 2500 .

There were 4,000 pressings in the UK of the disc The Night We Called It A Day. I picked up one from the Rough Trade store in Nottingham.
