Bob Dylan Revisits the Polarizing 'Self Portrait' for 'Bootleg Series' Release
Self Portrait consisted on covers and live cuts, and there has been frequent speculation that Dylan intended the album to tank. This new collection features material drawn from the same era, along with outtakes from 1969's Nashville Skyline and 1970's New Morning. There are a couple of songs from a one-day session in 1970 with George Harrison, along with a slew of demos, alternate versions, unreleased cuts, and original versions without overdubs.
All this appears on the standard two-disc edition. The deluxe four-disc edition, meanwhile, comes with Dylan and the Band's full set from the Isle of Wight in 1969, plus a remastered version of the original Self Portrait album. There are also two hardcover books.
See the tracklist below, and scroll past that to see a video trailer.
