The Music - Promo for Bob Dylan's "Self Portrait (1969-1971): The Bootleg Series Vol. 10" (2013)

The never ending Bootleg Series rolls on and steps into double figures with Bob Dylan's "Self Portrait (1969-1971): The Bootleg Series Vol. 10"  - a double CD collection (thirty-five tracks in all) of unreleased recordings, demo recordings, and alternative takes from Dylan's 1969/70 albums New Morning and, oddly, the much maligned Self Portrait. There is also a de-luxe edition featuring two further CDs and other extras outlined below

Colombia Records have now released this promo for the collection.

A blurb on "Self Portrait (1969-1971): The Bootleg Series Vol. 10"  goes ...
Another Self Portrait reveals fresh aspects of Dylan's vocal genius as he re-imagines traditional and contemporary folk music as well as songs of his own. Across these unvarnished performances, Dylan is the country singer from Nashville Skyline ("Country Pie" and "I Threw It All Away"), an interpreter of traditional folk ("Little Sadie," "Pretty Saro") who's right at home singing the songs of his contemporaries (Tom Paxton's "Annie's Gonna Sing Her Song" and Eric Andersen's "Thirsty Boots") before returning to writing and singing his own new music ("Went To See The Gypsy," "Sign On The Window".)
As well as the standard two disc configuration, The Bootleg Series, Vol. 10 – Another Self Portrait (1969-1971) will also be available in special four-disc deluxe boxed set which will include, for the first time ever, the complete historic performance by Bob Dylan and The Band from the Isle of Wight Festival on August 31, 1969 as well as a remastered version of the original Self Portrait.

Housed in a slipcase, the deluxe edition will include the newly remastered version of the Self Portrait album, in its entirety with original sequencing, in addition to two hardcover books featuring revisionist liner notes penned by Greil Marcus.

A vinyl version of The Bootleg Series, Vol. 10 will include the album's 35 tracks on three LPs plus a 12" x 12" booklet,

The various configurations dropped today, August 27, 2013.
