News and Notes
The Bootleg Series, Volumes 1-3
Usually, "rare and unreleased" collections are for die-hard fans who already own all the artist's albums. That's not the case here, as this triple-disc set may very well be superior to Dylan's Greatest Hits packages. The waltz version of "Like a Rolling Stone" aside, most of the alternate takes improve on the originals, and the previously unreleased tunes hold up nicely against the best songs in Dylan's catalog.
