Bob Dylan Planet Waves on Numbered Limited Edition Hybrid SACD from Mobile Fidelity! Mastered from the Original Master Tapes!

Chart-Topping 1974 Record Reunites Dylan With the Band: Interplay Alone Worth Experiencing Set in Highest-Possible Fidelity

Mobile Fidelity Version Brings Underrated Gem to Fullest Light With Warm, Revealing Sound

Edgy Personal Album Captures Legendary Artist Straddling Line Between Romance and Suspicion: Includes Beloved Favorites “Forever Young” and “You Angel You”


Bob Dylan’s Planet Waves became an event even before the album was released and revealed itself as an understated masterwork. His first studio recording in nearly four years, the homespun 1974 effort finds him reuniting with the Band, by then firmly established as virtuosos. The chemistry is obvious on every song. And the modest and spare production only magnifies the honesty and purity of the collaboration. Mobile Fidelity’s hybrid SACD deepens the music’s emotional connection and rustic warmth to the fullest possible extent.

Mastered from the original master tapes, this collectable audiophile edition brings to the surface the communal interplay and warm, relaxed vibe established by Dylan and the Band. Listeners will finally sense the sensitive tones made possible by the ensemble’s laidback nature and watertight playing. The deep body of Richard Manuel’s piano, pinpoint decay of Garth Hudson’s organ, and clarity of Dylan’s vocals emerge with new perspective. As a result, Planet Waves leaps from the background of Dylan’s catalog into the fore, the revelatory sonics helping earn the record serious consideration as one of the Bard’s finest.

Recorded in just three days time, Planet Waves is at its core an exhibition of the inimitable folk-rock honed by Dylan and the Band. Recalling the Americana spirit of The Basement Tapes while adding a domesticated edginess and subtracting a degree of wildness, the set personifies simple charm and scraggly sweetness. Couched in the context of Dylan grappling with the chasm between family life and the road, Planet Waves fittingly encompasses myriad moods and contradictions, with tunes ranging from unquestionably devotional to overtly dark. In between, the singer attempts to navigate peace, catharsis, and resolve.

Per Dylan’s hallmark, many tunes on Planet Waves involve twists and subterfuge. Not, however, the best-known offerings—the often-covered wish “Forever Young,” celebratory roll-and-tumble “On a Night Like This,” devotional “You Angel You,” which spark with love, romance, and prayer-like tenderness. Yet the seeds that blossomed into 1975’s traumatic break-up album Blood on the Tracks are also planted here. Complex feelings and deep-seated personal confusion surface on “Wedding Song,” the hardscrabble “Tough Mama,” piano-centered “Dirge,” and knocking-on-heaven’s-door darkness of “Going, Going, Gone.”

Throughout, Dylan’s voice supplies subtle hints about his mindset and intent as the Band shadows him step for step, adding to the thematic ambivalence and contributing to a debate over meaning that continues today. Indeed, such relevance confirms the significance of Planet Waves 40 years after its original release. Mobile Fidelity’s SACD version digs beneath the surface and helps expose the record’s buried strains.
