Bob & Brom




















In June '92, Bob Dylan recorded a couple of tracks with David Bromberg in Chicago's Acme Studios. Sadly, none of these were released, until Tell Tale Signs, the 8th installment in the Bootleg Series, gave us Miss The Mississippi and Duncan And Brady. Of at least eight other songs recorded at the Bromberg sessions that remain in the vaults, three rather lofi-sounding but fine tracks are circulating in collector's circles: two takes on Bromberg originals, and the beautiful traditional Polly Vaughn.

Bob Dylan - Polly Vaughn
Bob Dylan - Kaatskill Serenade
Bob Dylan - Sloppy Drunk

Peter, other songs recorded are said to be the traditionals I'll Rise Again, Lady Came From Baltimore, and Casey Jones, Brombergs World Of Fools, and Blind Willie Johnson's Nobody's Fault But Mine. Here's hoping we'll hear them some day.

Thanks, I did hear about his version of "Rise Again" and hope it gets airing some day.

He played Rise Again live once too, in 1980.
