Amoeba Records is selling the record at their Hollywood store
A rare test pressing of Bob Dylan‘s ‘Blood On The Tracks’ is on sale at a record shop in Los Angeles.
After recently purchasing a collection of 4,000 that had many “great, rare and one-of-a-kind items”, LA’s Amoeba Records discovered a rare pressing of one of Bob Dylan’s most iconic records among the job lot.
The record, which dates back to 1974, is on sale at the Hollywood store for $12,000 (£7,600) and is the “most expensive piece Amoeba has ever had for sale”, according to the owners.
The LP includes previously unreleased versions of ‘Lily, Rosemary And The Jack Of Hearts’, ‘Idiot Wind’, ‘If You See Her, Say Hello’, and ‘Tangled Up In Blue’, as well as an alternate take of ‘You’re A Big Girl Now’ that appeared on the ‘Biograph’ box set.
‘Blood On The Tracks’, Dylan’s 15th studio effort, reached Number One in the US charts, peaking at Number Four in the UK. It has been awarded a double-platinum certificate by the RIAA.
Although the tracks on the test pressings have been widely heard, to have a physical copy of this original pressing is incredibly rare.
The pressing is on display at the Hollywood store, available to view and to buy.
