Bob Dylan: Tell Tale Signs

Bob Dylan's Tell Tale Signs: The Bootleg Series Vol 8 is due for release on 7 October 2008.

The two cds cover 1989-2006. So what's there? Mostly alternate (and enjoyable) versions of some of the best songs from Oh Mercy, Time Out of Mind, "Love and Theft", Modern Times. That plus songs which didn't make the aforesaid albums for one reason or another.

Among the revelations, a song that didn't make it to Time out of Mind: Marchin' to the City.

Just beautiful.

Tell Tale Signs also includes some live performances as well as music from several film soundtracks.

In short: great stuff, songs, versions.

Is it rolling, Bob? Yes, indeed.

Interested? Pre-release, you can listen to cd1 and cd2 at: npr

And I pre-ordered mine before NPR streamed it! Feels like opening a present for a peek before Christmas morning.
