Bob Dylan Releasing Frank Sinatra Covers Album
According to Dylan, all songs were done live and in "maybe one or two takes," being mixed "as it was recorded." He also noted that all the songs on the album were "buried" themselves, mostly lesser known Sinatra songs rather than his biggest tunes.
"It was a real privilege to make this album," Dylan said in a press statement. "I've wanted to do something like this for a long time but was never brave enough to approach 30-piece complicated arrangements and refine them down for a five-piece band. That's the key to all these performances. We knew these songs extremely well. It was all done live. Maybe one or two takes. No overdubbing. No vocal booths. No headphones. No separate tracking, and, for the most part, mixed as it was recorded." Read more here.
