Now, in an apartment in New York, one of rock’s biggest starts music has been found. Some early Bob Dylan recordings have been found. “A treasure trove of 149 early Bob Dylan recordings were found in a New York City apartment including unreleased versions of songs from three Dylan albums from the 1960s and 1970s, local media reported Wednesday.The acetate records, which were used while recording and mixing albums, were found in two cardboard boxes in the closet of a New York apartment that Dylan once rented, according to the New York Daily News.The acetates, which are more fragile than commercial records and were not to meant to be played more than a few times, were sent between Dylan and his producer as they worked on the final versions of the albums Nashville Skyline, Self Portrait and New Morning, music historian Jeff Gold, who was tasked with verifying the records, told the paper.” A finding like this is something special. “”This is unprecedented. The sound quality is unbelievably great. These are first-generation recordings, cut directly from the master tape.”
