Bob Dylan - Bootleg Series 10: Another Self-Portrait

Postby John Etherington » Tue Jul 16, 2013 1:56 pm

This sounds good - better than "Self Portrait", and with Bob really singing!

First thought that came to mind echoed the Griel Marcus "what is this sh*t" review of the original Self Portrait album that is mentioned in the video ... but what the promo presents sounds great.

Below is the track list. A standard version will have 35 tracks on 2 CD's and a "deluxe version" will have 2 additional CD's - the complete recording of Dylan & The Band performing live at the Isle Of Wight in 1969 and a newly remastered version of the original Self Portrait album.

CD1
1 Went To See The Gypsy (demo)
2 In Search Of Little Sadie (without overdubs, Self Portrait)
3 Pretty Saro (unreleased, Self Portrait)
4 Alberta #3 (alternate version, Self Portrait)
5 Spanish Is The Loving Tongue (unreleased, Self Portrait)
6 Annie's Going To Sing Her Song (unreleased, Self Portrait)
7 Time Passes Slowly #1 (alternate version, New Morning)
8 Only A Hobo (unreleased, Greatest Hits II)
9 Minstrel Boy (unreleased, The Basement Tapes)
10 I Threw It All Away (alternate version, Nashville Skyline)
11 Railroad Bill (unreleased, Self Portrait)
12 Thirsty Boots (unreleased, Self Portrait)
13 This Evening So Soon (unreleased, Self Portrait)
14 These Hands (unreleased, Self Portrait)
15 Little Sadie (without overdubs, Self Portrait)
16 House Carpenter (unreleased, Self Portrait)
17 All The Tired Horses (without overdubs, Self Portrait)

This is quite exciting...maybe because Dylan's now reached such a low ebb?. I'd like to get the deluxe version, since I saw Dylan at the Isle of Wight. I hope this isn't a rip-off like the deluxe version of "Tell Tale Signs" was (and which I wasn't stupid enough to buy). If it is, someone will hopefully release a "Great White Wonder" version.

This sounds interesting...the last Dylan album I bought was the bootleg series Tell Tale Signs and loved it. Don't have his recent studio releases.

This is great news! Thanks John & Eskimo. Hopefully the deluxe version isn't a rip off John, as any version of the IoW concert I have is not exactly the best of quality ;-)

Dylan sings Eric Andersen! I see that "Thirsty Boots" is included on his forthcoming "Bootleg Series Vol.10 - Another Self Portrait" compilation.

Was included earlier this year as the 'b' side to Wigwam, John. A single release as part of Record Store Day. It's obvious now that Sony had one eye on this announcement.

Yours for the not inconsiderable sum of £63.99 on pre-order John. Gulp.... :shock:

If someone had told me 43 years ago that excitement would be be generated by Dylan releasing an album of outtakes based on the nearly universally-hated Self Portrait ...

Dylan's "official" store is listing the 2 CD set at $19.98, deluxe 4 CD set at $99.98 ... the $80 (£53) difference buys you the Isle of Wight concert, the remastered "Self Portrait" (the original version goes for $4.99 on Amazon) and 2 hardcover books with photos and liner notes ... I share the interest in the Isle of Wight recording with hopes that it is of good quality but this seems a bit pricey ...

It will be interesting to see what "Self Portrait Stripped Raw" noted in the promo video means ... the original production contributed to the "quality" of the album although certainly was not the main factor that made it what it was ... Could Death of A Ladies' Man (Naked) be on the horizon?

Who is this man?

Zimmy - One of Eric Andesen's greatest songs - the b-side to "Wigwam"???!!! Are they out of their minds?

I sure ain't paying £63+ for the deluxe edition...I'll wait till it's £20 at Fopp!

I think they are hoping we are ... and in my case, they are probably right ...
