Spectacular, boldly signed Blood on the Tracks—Bob Dylan's landmark work of heartbreak

A spectacular example of Bob Dylan’s 15th studio album, Blood On The Tracks, signed perfectly by Dylan in silver ink. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from REAL and a letter of provenance from Jeff Rosen, president of the Bob Dylan Music Company, in full: "I represent Bob Dylan and have done so for many years. In 2017 he signed a number of individual albums on a rare and limited basis, including the album photographed here. I can say for certain that it is Bob Dylan's signature. The chain of custody is directly from Bob Dylan to myself." The album itself is from the personal stock of Jeff Rosen and Bob Dylan. The cover and original vinyl record are in mint condition.

Many critics consider Blood on the Tracks to be Dylan’s finest work. With songs like 'Tangled Up In Blue' and 'Shelter From The Storm' it is a gut-wrenching account of the dissolution of his marriage. Dylan has denied that the songs on the album are are autobiographical, but it's impossible not to hear his pain on tracks like 'You're a Big Girl Now' and 'If You See Her, Say Hello.' The common thread throughout is the pain that comes when love dies. Blood on the Tracks endures as one of Dylan’s most honest and heartfelt recordings.

An unbelievable example of one of Dylan’s greatest albums, signed in a controlled environment, for his trusted business manager of 30-plus years. An unprecedented event, especially for the ever-elusive Dylan.
