Bob Dylan: Tell Tale Signs: The Bootleg Series Vol. 8
Buy! - (Columbia)
The latest volume in the acclaimed Bootleg Series of rare and previously unreleased Dylan recordings features material from 1989-2006, the time of Dylan’s latter-day creative renaissance when he dug deep into traditional blues, folk and country to create his own roots music of existential dread on three of his finest albums, Time Out Of Mind, Love and Theft and Modern Times. This 2-CD set (which also comes in a 3-disc version) includes previously unreleased songs, demos and alternate takes of album tracks, live recordings, cover songs and soundtrack tunes. Far from being a marginal odds ‘n sods release, it’s an essential document of one of Dylan’s great creative periods. Many of the alternate takes feature radically different arrangements and lyrics, and some of the previously unreleased songs rank with Dylan’s best. 10/1/2008 - Don Yates
