#627 – Bob Dylan’s Beard

20130829-000643.jpg

I grabbed the deluxe edition of Bob Dylan’s Another Self Portrait, the latest in the Bootleg Series of previously-unreleased material from across his career. As the comic points out, this particular collection covers everything from 1967 (the year of John Wesley Harding) to 1972 (the year before Dylan did the soundtrack to Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid). It’s an interesting collection, covering (as the title suggests) a bunch of stuff from one of Dylan’s most challenging albums, Self Portrait. The usually more stripped-down arrangements of the alternative versions presented here make for a unique listening experience, one much more in line with the sound Dylan had toyed with on John Wesley Harding and Nashville Skyline.

And that’s your daily dose of Dylan data.
