GerryM New release of 1970 Dylan (2) New release of 1970 Dylan 01 Dec 20


According to Rolling Stone,

-A tiny number of Bob Dylan fans scored a valuable collectible on Sunday when a three-disc collection of songs cut in 1970, including the legendary George Harrison sessions, was quietly put on sale via the U.K. store Badlands.

-“This release is strictly limited to 1 unit per customer,” the store wrote when announcing Bob Dylan – 50th Anniversary Collection 1970. “Extremely limited release. It will sell out instantly … Thank you and best of luck.”

-This collection was released in response to a European law stipulating that recordings enter the public domain 50 years after their creation if they aren’t officially released by the copyright holder. To avoid legal Bob Dylan bootlegs from flooding the market, his camp has released yearly copyright protection releases going back to 2012 when the complete 1962 recordings came out.

-Many of them contain take after take of the same song and would be of interest to nobody but the most devoted Dylan scholars, but they’re become extremely valuable due to their scarcity. They often sell on the resale market for upwards of $1,000 each.

There's more to the article, including a complete track listing of the new release. A lot of music there that I wouldn't have associated with Dylan, e.g.,

I Can't Help But Wonder Where I'm Bound
Universal Soldier
Spanish is the Loving Tongue
Thirsty Boots
Come All You Fair and Tender Ladies
Come a Little Bit Closer
Mama You've Been on My Mind
Yesterday
Ghost Riders in the Sky
All I Have to Do is Dream
Jamaica Farewell
Can't Help Falling in Love
Long Black Veil
Lily of the West

A local radio station played Yesterday from the new release. Have to say, I prefer the original.
