Bob Dylan - Desire [JapaneseFirst Pressing] - LP Album - Japanese pressing, Promo pressing - 1976/1976

1.) Bob Dylan - Desire

Great Jpn. First Press Release

In Hurricane, the album's opening song, Dylan celebrates the story of what he believes is the wrongly imprisoned black boxer Rubin Carter.
He was charged with three murders in 1966 and narrowly escaped the death penalty in a circumstantial trial.
Carter received life sentence. His book The 16th round, which was written in prison, he sent Dylan in 1975, who took this as an opportunity to visit him in prison, whereupon this song was composed.
With his Rolling Thunder Revue and the final concert in New York's Madison Square Garden, Dylan first made this legal case known to millions of Americans. Together with Muhammad Ali, Dylan spoke live with the jailed boxer during the last revue concert.
Rubin Carter was not released until 1985 after the trial was retried.

In a 2005 poll by the music magazine Rolling Stone, the album was ranked 173 of the 500 best albums of all time.
