Next week — August 27th, to be precise — Columbia Records will release Bob Dylan’s The Bootleg Series, Vol. 10 – Another Self Portrait (1969-1971), a collection of 35 tracks (unreleased recordings, demos and alternate takes) that were largley recorded during studio sessions for the 1970 albums Self Portrait and New Morning. If you’re looking for a little preview, then head over to NPR’s First Listen site where 15 tracks are streaming for free … for a limited time. Titles include “Time Passes Slowly #1″, which features Dylan playing with George Harrison; a version of “If Not for You” performed solo with only violin accompaniment; and a live version of “Highway 61 Revisited” recorded by Dylan, backed by The Band, at the Isle of Wight concert in 1969.
Enjoy the free listens while they last.
