Bob Dylan | The Bootleg Series, Vols. 1-3 (Rare & Unreleased 1961-1991) | 5LP Vinyl Box Set

  • $ 94.99

Bob Dylan has always been incredibly prolific, only releasing a fraction of what he records. Such a policy has made him a prime target for bootleggers over the years, finally prompting this sanctioned 1991 dive into the Dylan vaults.

This incredible 5LP vinyl box set consists of rare tracks, unreleased outtakes, early versions of classics ("Times They Are a-Changin'," "Like a Rolling Stone," "I Shall Be Released"), and alternate versions that sometimes cut the originals ("Idiot Wind"). A measure of Dylan's depth is his list of discarded songs ("She's Your Lover Now," "Blind Willie McTell," "Series of Dreams") that would be the crown jewels of most catalogs. These tracks serve as a shadow history of one of our most important artists. - Ben Edmonds
