Another Self Portrait (1969-1971): The Bootleg Series Vol. 10

Biography

BOB DYLAN Biography by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Bob Dylan's influence on popular music is incalculable. As a songwriter, he pioneered several different schools of pop songwriting, from confessional singer/songwriter to winding, hallucinatory, stream-of-consciousness narratives. As a vocalist, he broke down the notion that a singer must have a conventionally good voice in order to ... Read more in Amazon's Bob Dylan Store

Editorial Reviews

Bob Dylan Bootleg Series Volume 10 comes from the 1969 1971 recording sessions that ultimately produced the Self Portrait and New Morning albums. All 35 tracks are previously unreleased, alternate takes, demos or live versions of that material. The versions of the songs on this package are radically different from the officially released versions. The cover is new artwork by Bob Dylan. The liner notes have been written by Greil Marcus, who wrote the original Self Portrait review for Rolling Stone that infamously asked, "What is this sh**?". Also included is an extensive essay from well known journalist, Michael Simmons. The set also has extensive photographs of that era from John Cohen and Al Clayton many of them rare and unseen - as well as pictures of the original tape boxes and cue sheets.

The Standard Version contains 35 tracks on 2 CD's, and soft cover perfect bound booklet
The Deluxe Version contains 4 CD s and two hardcover books housed in a hardcover slip case
Book # 1 contains 4 CD's and liner notes
Book # 2 contains the photos from John Cohen and Al Clayton.
The 2 bonus CD's will contain the newly remastered version of Self Portrait and the complete 17 song recording of Dylan & The Band performing live at the Isle Of Wight in 1969
The vinyl version contains 35 tracks on 3 LPs (and 2 CDs) plus a 12" x 12" booklet that includes the liner notes written by Greil Marcus, the essay from Michael Simmons, and the photographs from John Cohen and Al Clayton, and pictures of the original tape boxes and cue sheets.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Most Listenable Bootleg Series Album August 27, 2013
Format:Audio CD
I have been a hard core Bob Dylan fan ever since I belatedly discovered his music during the television broadcast of the concert film "Hard Rain," when I was a freshman at Oberlin in the fall of 1976. (At Oberlin, at that time, Dylan was one of the two most-requested artists on the campus radio station; Joan Baez was the other.) As a serious fan, I have owned multiple copies of every Dylan album on various formats over the intervening decades, and have seen the man himself in concert many times, so Dylan's music has been a large part of the fabric of my life. I hailed the appearance of first volumes of the "Bootleg Series" in 1997 as a chance to finally own "legitimate" versions, with improved sound quality, of songs I first heard on vinyl bootleg albums I bought from a basement record store in Greenwich Village in the late 1970s. However welcome they were at the time of their release, though, previous volumes of the series have provided little more than fascinating glimpses into the artist's creative process, much in the manner of the "Beatles Anthology" discs, wherein we belatedly learned that even Lennon and McCartney were not infallible. I approached Dylan's "Another Self Portrait" cautiously, especially in view of the fact that I am among the legions of fans who, notwithstanding their overall admiration for Dylan, were unimpressed by the original 1970 release, which did have some good tracks, but which was, on the whole, chaotic and unfocused. Imagine my delight, then, when I discovered "Another Self Portrait," a genuine, if long-neglected, masterpiece which far surpasses the vastly inferior album released in its stead more than forty years ago. What Dylan was thinking when he passed over this consistently splendid material in compiling the original release, I can't begin to imagine. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars Isle of Wight August 27, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The 2-CD Another Self Portrait "album" is a deliberate hodge-podge like its parent from back in the day. But I don't know why the producers felt the need to include an unreleased Basement Tapes song and inferior out-takes from Nashville Skyline. Neither of these ideas fit the mold here, for opposite reasons. One is too low-fi (and old) and the others are too clean sounding (and unimportant). Detracting further value, they are placed right next to each other in the running order. I'll end up making my own playlist with the songs that would be appropriate for "Another Self Portrait". There are a lot of goodies -- maybe one CD worth, plus a few too many throwaway versions that probably should have remained in the vault.

One more complaint before I get to the good stuff. This would have been the perfect time to finally get that vinyl-only "Dylan" record on CD. It is cut from the same cloth as many of the SP recordings, and it needs to see the light of the new millennium. Dylan himself once said he didn't think it was so bad. I think it's great, and it would have made the ideal addition to this box.

I sprang for the deluxe version mainly because I wanted to hear the Isle of Wight concert in full (and re-mixed). I was not disappointed. These performances are what we have been waiting for. They fill the gap between familiar live Dylan incarnations. The Band is on fire, and the arrangements are sometimes startlingly different from any you have heard before. When I heard those couple of live songs on the original SP album, I thought they were taken from a sub-par concert. I could not have been more wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars Someday Everything Is Going To Sound Like a Rhapsody August 27, 2013
Format:Audio CD
So sings Dylan in a beautiful solo piano version of When I Paint My Masterpiece that closes out this collection.

And so it is. The haunting, unadorned and authentic work that appears on Another Self Portrait certainly seems like a masterpiece as over and against what was actually released in 1970.

Dylan's unfortunate later penchant for not releasing some of his best work (think Blind Willie McTell and Foot of Pride from Infidels) seems to have gotten underway at this time. In this sense, Greil Marcus inadvertently had it right in asking, "What is this ____t?" in the famous 1970 Rolling Stone review of the original Self Portrait. The release at that time of the honest, unadorned traditional songs that we now hear for the first time would have been a tour de force. Better late than never...

Anyway, setting revisionism aside, let's look at this current and excellent release.

Of the 35 tracks, the majority are from the Self Portrait sessions. These include versions of songs that were released, heard here without the often ill advised overdubbing, as well as a number of other songs in a similar spare style that should have been released, but were not. Apart from the Self Portrait material, there's some great stuff from the New Morning sessions later in 1970. In addition, there are several alternate versions of Nashville Skyline content, a couple of great live recordings from the Isle of Wight, and a smattering of other work from the 1967 - 1971 period.

Here are a few of my favorite cuts:

Went to See the Gypsy - The demo version with just Dylan and David Bromberg on guitar is faraway, haunting, and wistful. It sounds true to the lyric in a way that the urgent delivery of the released version misses almost entirely.

Anticipating its arrival!
I completely agree about New Morning, Nellie. It is a wonderful album from start to finish that stands up to repeated listenings. And I find myself drawn to it much more than many albums in Bob's catalog that are considered to be regarded more highly.

I like the fact that Dylan is releasing... Read More

There is very little well recorded Dylan and the Band around and i am looking forward to hearing what they played at the Isle of Wight.

No Track Listing?
Very bizarre. The lack of tracklisting, and the unclear description of the differences between the two deluxe versions, has me heading to the record shop. Even if it takes a week or more to get it ordered.

Per BobDylan.com, this song was originally released on Greatest Hits Vol. 2.
