Bob Dylan Shares Rehearsal Recording Of 1980 “Every Grain Of Sand”

first_imgIn 1978, Bob Dylan spent a great deal of time writing gospel tunes, many of which never made it on record simply because there wasn’t enough time to release them all. Most of the unrecorded songs lived on gospel tours from 1979 to 1981 (that eventually turned into bootlegs), or they never left the rehearsal room at all. Now in 2017, Bob Dylan is gearing up to release the songs from his spiritual period in the upcoming box set Trouble No More – The Bootleg Series Vol. 13 / 1979-1981. Following the release of “Making A Liar Out Of Me,” which never made it out of a rehearsal room, and rehearsal version of “Slow Train,” Dylan shares the another single from the box set: “Every Grain Of Sand.” This particular recording was taken from a September 26, 1980 session for Shot Of Love.“Every Grain Of Sand” will be featured in a six disc set from Bob Dylan’s gospel era to be released on November 3, 2017. The box set will feature both studio and live recordings, including two discs of rare and unreleased outtakes and rehearsal recordings, from this era to place Dylan in his own period of sound, creativity, and ultimate mastery.Listen to 1980’s outtake of “Every Grain Of Sand” below:Check out some of the other recordings from the upcoming compilation below: Trouble No More – The Bootleg Series Vol. 13 / 1979-198Disc 1: LiveSlow Train (Nov. 16, 1979)Gotta Serve Somebody (Nov. 15, 1979)I Believe in You (May 16, 1980)When You Gonna Wake Up?
