NEWS: Dylan announces massive Bootleg Series release of the ‘gospel years’

Dylan-Bootleg-13

This has always been one of the more fascinating periods of Dylan’s career, when he started exploring gospel music and religious-leaning song subject matter.  Due from Columbia and Legacy on November 3rd, Trouble No More: The Bootleg Series Vol. 13 / 1979-1981 focuses on Dylan’s so-called “gospel years”. The Deluxe Edition features nine discs – 8 CDs and 1 DVD – and premieres 100 previously unreleased tracks, including 14 previously unreleased songs.

This was a period that produced the trilogy of albums – Slow Train Coming (1979), Saved (1980) and Shot of Love (1981).

The deluxe box set is rounded out with a DVD which includes Trouble No More: A Musical Film, a new feature-length cinematic presentation combining unreleased footage from Dylan’s 1980 tours. Directed by Jennifer Lebeau, the film has been selected to premiere at the prestigious 2017 New York Film Festival.  Bonus material on the DVD includes complete, alternate live performances from this era.

In addition to the Deluxe Edition, Trouble No More will be available in 2CD or 4LP versions featuring the first two discs from the box set.
