A comprehensive anthology of music from the mythic first leg of Bob Dylan’s groundbreaking Rolling Thunder Revue, this 14CD box set includes all five of Dylan’s full sets from that tour that were professionally recorded. The collection also provides the listener with an intimate insider’s seat for recently unearthed rehearsals at New York’s S.I.R. studios and the Seacrest Motel in Falmouth, MA plus a bonus disc showcasing one-of-a-kind performances from the tour.

The collection features 148 tracks in all, with more than 100 of those never previously released. Included in the box set is a 52-page booklet featuring rare and never-before-seen Rolling Thunder Revue photos and a revelatory essay by novelist/musician Wesley Stace. Concurrent with the release of the 14CD box set will be a reissue of The Bootleg Series Volume 5 on vinyl, back in print for the first time since 2002 as a 3LP set with a 64-page booklet.

Bob Dylan – The Rolling Thunder Revue: The 1975 Live Recordings is available for pre-order now in digital, and CD formats: https://bobdylan.lnk.to/rollthunder-boxsetPR

Launched in the fall of 1975, Bob Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Revue flouted the touring conventions of the time by featuring an eclectic cast of characters and playing small and unusual venues with little advance notice. The shows would often stretch to more than four hours long, generating some of the artist’s most dramatic and dynamic on-stage performances ever. Dylan debuted the new songs he’d written for his forthcoming Desire album (which became one of the most acclaimed and popular in his canon) with a fire and intensity that Dylan had reached ten years earlier with his incendiary tours with musicians who became The Band. He also took wild, interpretative rides through his back catalog and broke out some unexpected covers.

Dylan gathered amazing friends and collaborators for his ensemble – dubbed Guam for the tour – that included T Bone Burnett, Mick Ronson, Joan Baez,  Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Bobby Neuwirth, Scarlett Rivera, Ronee Blakley, Steven Soles, David Mansfield, Rob Stoner, Howie Wyeth and Luther Rix. Poet Allen Ginsberg and Joni Mitchell also brought their talents to the show’s encores. Dylan, the consummate band leader, managed to take these musicians from various backgrounds and sensibilities and mold them into a tight musical unit on stage.

Bob Dylan – The Rolling Thunder Revue: The 1975 Live Recordings serves as a companion piece to the new film, “Rolling Thunder Revue – A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese,” premiering on Netflix on June 12. Every one of Bob Dylan’s performances in the movie can be found in this boxed set.

ABOUT DANNY ELFMAN
For over 30 years, four-time Oscar nominee Danny Elfman, has established himself as one of the most versatile and accomplished film composers in the industry. He has collaborated with directors such as Tim Burton, Gus Van Sant, Sam Raimi, Peter Jackson, Ang Lee, Rob Minkoff, Guillermo del Toro, Brian De Palma, James Ponsoldt and David O’ Russell. Beginning with his first score on Tim Burton’s Pee-wee’s Big Adventure, Elfman has scored over 100 films, including: Milk (Oscar nominated), Good Will Hunting (Oscar nominated), Big Fish (Oscar nominated), Men in Black(Oscar nominated), Edward ScissorhandsBatman, To Die For, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Alice in WonderlandSilver Linings PlaybookAmerican HustleAvengers: Age of Ultron, Spiderman, A Simple Plan, Midnight RunSommersby, Dolores Claiborne, and the Errol Morris documentaries The Unknown Knownand Standard Operating Procedure.  Most recently he has provided the music for Tim Burton’s film Dumbo, Warner Bros. Justice League, Gus Van Sant’s Don’t Worry He Won’t Get Far On Foot and The Grinch for Universal.

A native of Los Angeles, Elfman grew up loving film music. He travelled the world as a young man, absorbing its musical diversity. He helped found the band Oingo Boingo, and came to the attention of a young Tim Burton, who asked him to write the score for Pee-wee’s Big Adventure. 34 years later, the two have forged one of the most fruitful composer-director collaborations in film history. In addition to his film work, Elfman wrote the iconic theme music for the television series The Simpsons and Desperate Housewives.

Elfman has expanded his writing to composing orchestral concert works which include: Serenada Schizophrana, a symphony commissioned by the American Composer’s Orchestra, which premiered at Carnegie Hall in 2005, Rabbit and Rogue, for the American Ballet Theater choreographed by Twyla Tharp, performed at The Metropolitan Opera house in 2008, and Iris for Cirque du Soleil directed by French choreographer Philippe Decouflé.  In 2011, Danny Elfman’s Music from the Films of Tim Burton live orchestral concert, premiered at Royal Albert Hall, and has since toured around the world and won two Emmys.

In 2017 Elfman’s violin concerto, “Eleven-Eleven” written for violinist Sandy Cameron had its world premiere in Prague and was performed by Cameron and the Czech National Orchestra.  In 2018, Elfman’s violin concerto, “Eleven-Eleven” had its U.S. premiere performed by Cameron and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and this year,  “Eleven-Eleven” was recorded by Sandy Cameron and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and released on Sony Classical International. Also, Elfman’s first Piano Quartet, commissioned by the Berlin Philharmonic Piano Quartet, premiered at the Berlin Philharmonie.

“I need to push myself into new territory with fresh challenges as much as I can and whenever I can. I am told I have a recognizable style but my greatest pleasure is when I can surprise the audience with my music.”

ABOUT CHRIS BACON
Chris Bacon burst onto the film scoring scene with his full throttled score for Duncan Jones’s hit thriller Source Code. “From the point that I could start thinking about what I wanted to do when I grew up,” says Chris Bacon, “it was always to write movie music.” Having cut his teeth as a protégé—orchestrating, co-composing, and writing additional music—of James Newton Howard (on films like Gnomeo and Juliet and King Kong), Bacon made his solo debut with the score for Angels Fall and hasn’t looked back. He gave animated accompaniments to Space Chimps and Alpha and Omega, and composed the dramatic score for the war documentary High Ground produced by Don Hahn. Chris also wrote the underscore for the second half of NBC’s Smash season one, which earned him his first Emmy Award Nomination. Chris recently received his second Emmy Award Nomination on Bates Motel for best Original Dramatic Score for a Series. He has also contributed additional music to David O. Russell’s Academy Award nominated American Hustle, Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Age of Ultron, Paddington produced by David Heyman, and Sony Picture’s Goosebumps. His most recent work includes Rob Reiner’s Being Charlie, ABC’s TV drama When We Rise, the Amazon reboot The Tick directed by Wally Pfister, the Fox feature Snatched directed by Jonathan Levine, and  the Paramount animation-adventure feature, Sherlock Gnomes.

Bacon grew up in Utah, learning playing piano and saxophone before studying music composition in college. He moved to L.A. to attend USC’s film scoring program, which resulted in his apprenticeship with Howard. “It comes back to instinct,” he says of his process, “and for better or worse, following my ears.”
