Transfer & Restoration by Prof. Stoned


Prof. sez:

Here's a not so often-heard tune from one of Dylan's best years, transferred from a clean looking and unworn sounding copy. 
The B-side has been omitted here because it is the album mono version which is available elsewhere in much better quality.  



The following was lovingly pinched from http://www.searchingforagem.com/1960s/1967.htm:

"Out-take from Bringing It All Back Home recorded at Columbia Studios, New York, 15 Jan 1965, overdubbed 21 May 1965
The A-side of this single manufactured in Holland, and also released in Belgium and Luxemburg.

This is an alternate version to the one released in 1991 on The Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3, with backup vocals on the choruses 
overdubbed by a female vocal group called The Poppies. Two composite versions of If You Gotta Go, Go Now were produced from 
an overdub session at Columbia Studios, New York, on 21 May 1965. Composite 1 (from takes 1-5) was released as this single, 
Composite 2 (from takes 6-7) was released on The Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3. The musicians who took part on 21 May 1965 aren't 
named, and although there's no mention of singers Michael Krogsgaard thinks the vocal overdubbing may have taken place then. 
However, The Poppies' recording career for Epic as a group occurred only from 1966, so the vocal overdubbing may actually 
have been recorded later. No such session for 1966 is listed in Michael Krogsgaard's series on Bob Dylan's recording 
sessions in "The Telegraph" and "The Bridge".

Hans Seegers adds: "Some collectors claim that this single was mistakenly released by CBS Holland. Research at CBS showed, 
however, that this was not true. As with all Dutch Dylan releases of those days, the release itself and the compilation of 
its A- and B-sides were determined by Columbia USA, who also supplied the master tapes for this single. 
So for CBS Holland this was a normal release as any other Dylan single. It may be possible, as other collectors claim, 
that Dylan objected to the release of If You Gotta Go, Go Now, but no proof whatsoever at CBS was found that this led to 
the withdrawal of it from record shops. Actually there was even a second run at the pressing plant causing the two label 
variations known so far. This being the most sought after Dutch single has more to do with the fact that Holland was the 
only country where If You Gotta Go, Go Now was released legitimately and less with its rarity amongst Dutch singles. 
There are other Dutch singles that are much harder to get!"
