another self portraitNext 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.
