Bob Dylan has announced the 14th instalment of his long-running Bootleg Series: More Blood, More Tracks.
Due November 2, the box set is huge in scope. It compiles “every surviving take” from the New York and Minneapolis sessions that culminated in Dylan’s 1975 classic, Blood on the Tracks.
“Dylan cut each of these amazing performances—some of the best he ever committed to tape—one after the other, live in the studio, without headphones, and without the types of overdubs that most performers rely on to make their records sound finished,” Jeff Slate, a journalist who has written extensively about the legendary musician, pens in the set’s liner notes.
“Instead, on these tracks, we find Dylan—just a singer with a guitar and a harmonica and a batch of great songs—delivering performances that thrill you when they’re supposed to and break your heart when they need to.”
Released as a teaser for the upcoming collection is “If You See Her, Say Hello (Take 1).” Stream it here:
