Bob Dylan TELL TALE SIGNS: The Bootleg Series Vol. 8

On October 7, Bob Dylan will release TELL TALE SIGNS: The Bootleg Series Vol. 8. The two-CD, 27-song set contains previously unreleased studio recordings, demos, alternate takes, live tracks and rarities spanning 1989 to 2006, a rich period that generated the lauded Time Out of Mind, Love and Theft, Modern Times and Oh Mercy. A third 12-track disc is part of a limited-edition deluxe set in a hardcover slipcase with a book with photos of all of Dylan's singles. The 27-song version also will be issued in a limited-edition four-LP set.

YES!!! I plan on creating a unit around Dylan's work once I begin teaching next year. Here is an interesting article that claims his songs are NOT poetry (what?)

I'm interested in his take of 32/20 Blues. I sure do like Gov't Mule's version. The rest of the tracks should be interesting also.

That Cocaine Blues will be nice. I want to hear the Cold Irons Bound from 'Roo too. I remember that show (sort of) and I was pissed because I didn't feel like Bob D was getting the credit he deserved from the crowd. The way I remember it, he was really rocking out that night, more so than I had ever heard him do live and I've seen him enough to know, haha. Elvis + Dylan + The Beatles = the holy trinity of modern popular music. If you ever feel like blowing your head off, put on Blood on the Tracks and really listen to it. It just might save your life, his last masterpiece in my opinion.

Smittea, im not one to judge but you sure seem to be, if you think you hold some sort of superior intellect over anyone youre whole perspective is fucked. LEt alone you have no idea who i am, so to have the nerve to give me any type of advice through an internet post is absurd. I dont mean to chap your uptight ass furthermore although id just love to throw one more quote at cha "the only true wisdom is in knowing that you know nothing". Peace

rainydaywomen420...there is nothing about "peace" in your comments. You are right about me not knowing WHO you are, but based upon your juvenile posts we can only assume the worst. Your enthusiasm for music is fantastic, your tendency to quote lyrics as your own message is somewhat pathetic and the rest of your messages are,...well...somewhat immature.

I wish that he put a version of Mississippi on this cd.

smittea, i am truly saddened by our "juvenile" bickering, clearly you paid no mind to the very last quote (not a lyric, a quote from socrates) because you should never "assume" anything. I dont quote lyrics as my own message, only to further promote brilliance. Lastly, can i buy you a drink?

Oh YEAH! Grand Slam! Best music news I've heard in a while. There is a version of Mississippi on here, surlybuf - fisrt song, D1. I love the fact that recent years live cuts will be on here, that's awesome. I wish the Dylan camp would release more live shows from ALL Dylan eras. Might try to catch some of the late August run in Indiana.
