Bob Dylan's "The Bootleg Series" Continues
Posted by Alex Mazariegos on Jul 17, 2013 - 2:54:36 PM

HOLLYWOOD—Bob Dylan aficionados will have a chance to purchase “The Bootleg Series, Vol. 10 ”“ Another Self Portrait (1969-1971)” when Columbia Records releases the next installment in the Bootleg Series on August 27.


The newest entry in the series offers 35 rarities in the form of unreleased recordings, demos and alternate takes from the 1970 studio recording sessions that resulted in the official 1970 albums “Self Portrait” and “New Morning.”


Bob Dylan's tenth album, “Self Portrait,” was released in June 1970 to generally spiteful reviews from critics; chief among them was Greg Marcus' infamous review in Rolling Stone, which began with a rather acerbic barb aimed at the album. Dylan has since defended his intention behind releasing the album. In a Rolling Stone interview in 1984, he confessed that he intended to make a terrible record in order to eradicate his “spokesperson of a generation” label imposed on him by critics and fans. As a continuation of the singer's reflections, the press release for the reissue of “Self Portrait” describes the album as “a deliberate act of iconoclasm that shattered Dylan's image as 'generational spokesperson' while stretching the boundaries of pop music and his own.”


The action backfired by Dylan's own admission, and in October 1970 he released his eleventh studio album, “New Morning,” which returned the musician back to songwriting (“Self Portrait” contained mostly covers). Critics warmly received the album upon its release, though its reputation cooled as it fell under the shadow of Dylan's 1975 album “Blood on the Tracks,” which critics and fans deemed a masterpiece.


The tenth entry in the Bootleg Series will be distributed in a standard two-disc set and a four-disc deluxe boxed set. The standard release will contain the 35 aforementioned rarities; while incorporating the tracks in the standard set, the boxed set will also include the complete performance by Bob Dylan and The Band from the Isle of Wight Festival on August 31, 1969, a re-mastered version of Self Portrait and two hardcover books.


A vinyl version (three LPs with the 35 tracks plus a booklet) will also be released.
