Bob Dylan

Say what you look like about Bob Dylan - his croaky vocals, his erratic live shows, his quixotic personality and his refusal to be labeled - this enigmatic artist has produced a catalogue of songs the envy of singer-songwriters the world over.

And the fact this is Dylan’s eighth official Bootleg Series speaks, or rather strums, volumes. A collection of unreleased tracks, demos and alternate takes, this album underscores the timelessness and range of Dylan’s compositions.

From the soulful “Mississippi,” oozing longing and regret, to “High Water,” a high-octane, post-apocalyptic vision Dylan played live at Niagara Falls in 2003, we’re treated to a dazzling range of works from the past two decades.

Broken relationships, abandoned love, social consciousness, loss of dignity and an angry defiance that still has resonance despite the longevity of Dylan’s career. By Michael Gibb
