    A Sony catalogue number such as
    SICP-6512 seems to suggest the CD will be manufactured in Japan. Usually the catalogue number would look different and something like *non Japan made disc or manufactured outside Japan would appear in the product listing.

    It’s on Spotify too. I might even listen to it. Friends report flimsy packaging

    Would you call this album soundtrack or studio album?

    The Bard Highway 61 Revisited. That is all.

    I ordered the Japanese CD - hoping for better packaging :)

    Listened to it this morning on my commute. Pleasant but inessential, I think.

    I'm interested in that, too.

    One more question: Are the recordings of this official physical release exactly the same as in the movie?
    Or is it mixed differently?

    My CD just arrived. I haven't listened yet but shockingly minimal packaging. No booklet. Not even any musician credits, which is just disrespectful. Bit disappointing but I look forward to the music.

    We don’t know what kind of agreement or communication was given to the musicians prior to the session. None of them have spoken out about playing on it or feeling disrespected for 2 years which makes me think they’re along for the ride.

    I'm seeing all the complaints about packaging......Dylans albums have hardly been the grandeur of packaging over the years....especially on CD. Time Out Of Mind had bare minimum info back in the day in a folded inner cover - which became standard for the next few albums. R&RW was a basic cardboard sleeve - although we did get the musicians names at least.

    Mildly interesting that it is on the Columbia Legacy label and thus considered to be an archival release rather than a new album as such.

    Well, maybe so but this does feel a bit cheap as a product, notwithstanding the nice cover shot. But as has already been said, R&RW and Tempest weren't much better.

    They told me Monday arrival even though I ordered it the day it was announced. Woke up this morning to a notification it would arrive today along with the new Roger Waters LP.

    When In Rome It's far from being all over...

    I've used the genre soundtrack when I just imported it into itunes*.
    There's no gaps in the music so far, they all segue into each other with little musical (w)interludes. I'm up to track 7.

    (*Yes, I still use iTunes etc. :rolleyes: )

    Nice, I have them both on pre-order too. Rufus is a sensational live act too if you haven’t seen him. What a talented family!

    Listening now, hi res (24/96) on Qobuz. Sounds really nice to my ears on first pass. But then again, it's Bob. I'm biased.

    Any word on if or when we'll get a physical release of the video on DVD/Blu-ray/4K?

    First listen and, well, it is an odd beast isn't it. I haven't seen the show but the audio only experience sounds rather like a bunch of musicians sitting around jamming on some old Bob tunes without any real intention of them being made public. It sort of reminds me of some of the rehearsal recordings from the Rolling Thunder box, though obviously it is a very different sounding Bob and band. Great to hear him singing so well though.

    Agree that it’s odd. The singing is strong but it’s strangely unsatisfying as a CD release. Not sure why I don’t like it more.

    After my first listen, what really jumped out is that Bob sounds great. But my first impression was, oh jeez, another Bob Dylan live piece that won't get much airplay. That's not to say he hasn't released some indispensable live albums, bootlegs included. But to me, Shadow Kingdom doesn't fall into that category. I'm content to stream this one.

    It's really an audio/video thing IMO, but that's me. I don't think I'd ever just "listen" to this.

    I was going to buy it after listening today - but not in this shoddy CD package, and not as an overpriced, three sides only, vinyl "double".
