Bob Dylan has always been one to fly under the radar, so it should come as no surprise to anyone that the music legend is making collectors of his music nuts with something he did last Saturday.
Dylan released a three-disc collection of songs he recorded way back in 1970 -- including sessions he did with the late George Harrison -- through Badlands, which is an independent record store in Gloucestershire, England.
The store wrote “This release is strictly limited to one unit per customer.” The statement was made after announcing Bob Dylan – 50th Anniversary Collection 1970.
The statement went on to say, “Extremely limited release. It will sell out instantly … Thank you and best of luck.”
The set has 74 songs, including the complete May 1st, 1970 session with Harrison, which included Dylan's “One Too Many Mornings” and “It Ain’t Me Babe,” and a quick run through The Beatles’ “Yesterday.”
Most of the material on this collection comes from the sessions for Dylan's New Morning album, which he released in October of 1970.
2021 could also see the release of the complete sessions for bonus material from Greatest Hits Volume 2. Down the road in 2024, every recording made during his 1974 Before the Flood tour with The Band could also be released.
