Buying multiple copies of vinyl records makes more sense than multiple copies of CDs. Condition is always key but sometimes it is just hard to let a vintage record not go home with you. For me, every Bob Dylan record is tempting but a nice, clean copy of Blood On The Tracks was just irresistible.
I have one copy hanging on my wall but it has tons of static, so I wanted a clean copy to spin. This beautiful break up album is one that you don’t really listen to; you absorb it. It is heartbreaking and liberating all in one shot. You have probably heard the great “Tangled Up In Blue” but if you really want to hear the power of Blood On The Tracks listen to “If You See Her, Say Hello” “You’re A Big Girl Now” or “Idiot Wind.” There are very few records that always sound fresh and can survive endless, repeated spins but this one is definitely among them. Was it worth buying a second copy? Without a doubt. Just like it will be worth buying third and fourth copies if the opportunity ever arises.
