Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan collectibles, box sets, and rarities. No rock vinyl collection is complete without these hard-to-find releases from the legendary the rock icon


Columbia Records and Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, will release Bob Dylan - Trouble No More - The Bootleg Series Vol. 13 / 1979-1981 on Friday, November 3.
The latest chapter in Columbia/Legacy's highly acclaimed Bob Dylan Bootleg Series showcases the music Dylan wrote and performed during one of the most surprising, controversial and inspired periods of his career.
As the 1970s ended and the 1980s began, Dylan responded to the changing of the decades with a three album trilogy--Slow Train Coming (1979), Saved (1980) and Shot of Love (1981)--of spirit-filled songs of praise, worship and devotion. These songs were as deeply personal and packed with poetics as any Dylan had ever written, but the force of conviction and power of faith evident in these performances baffled segments of Dylan's fanbase (just as Dylan's "going electric" had alienated folk purists in 1965).

The live concerts from this crucial epoch in Dylan's history contain some of the most intensely jubilant and transcendent performances of his career. Bob Dylan - Trouble No More - The Bootleg Series Vol. 13 / 1979-1981 offers fans and music lovers the opportunity to fully experience for the first time this extraordinary chapter in Bob Dylan's musical journey.
With the exception of "Ye Shall Be Changed," released in 1991 on The Bootleg Series, Vol. 1-3), none of the tracks on Trouble No More have been previously released. This collection debuts 14 previously unreleased songs and a multitude of unreleased live performances, rare studio outtakes and more.

Available exclusively on the deluxe box set is a DVD which includes "Trouble No More: A Musical Film," a new feature-length cinematic presentation combining unreleased footage from Dylan's 1980 tours with new material written by Luc Sante and performed by Academy Award nominee Michael Shannon. Directed by Jennifer Lebeau, "Trouble No More" has been selected to premiere at the prestigious 2017 New York Film Festival.  Bonus extras on the box set's exclusive DVD include a rare performance of "Shot of Love" from Avignon 1981 and more.

PACKAGING/SPECIAL FEATURES
Deluxe version, in an oversized slipcase with a separate hardcover photo book.
The deluxe box set includes a hardcover book featuring an introduction by Dylan scholar Ben Rollins with liner notes by Amanda Petrusich, Rob Bowman and Penn Jillette.

The Bootleg Servies: Vols 1-3 (5LP Boxset)

It is absolutely humbling, given the quality of the material on this 3-CD, 58-song set, to think that these are the Dylan compositions that DIDN'T make the cut for his albums! Includes long-rumoured songs (“She's Your Lover Now”; “Blind Willie McTell”), alternate versions (of the songs on Blood on the Tracks, for instance), live cuts and more unreleased treasures. A must.

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 triple-disc dive into the Dylan vaults. It 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 catalogues. These 58 tracks serve as a shadow history of one of our most important artists.
