'Bob Dylan 1970' gets wide release | The Music Universe

Three disc collection of previously unavailable studio performances includes complete May 1, 1970 session featuring George Harrison

Due to popular demand, Columbia Records and Legacy Recordings announce the forthcoming release of Bob Dylan – 1970, the first widely available pressing of a three disc collection of long-sought-after studio recordings, on Friday, February 26th.

The recordings on Bob Dylan – 1970 were first released in a limited edition on December 4th as part of the Bob Dylan – 50th Anniversary Collection copyright extension series (which began in 2012). The buzz surrounding the 1970 performances, notably Dylan’s studio sit-down with George Harrison on May 1st, created a demand for a broader release of these historic tracks.

Bob Dylan – 1970 includes previously unreleased outtakes from the sessions that produced Self Portrait and New Morning as well as the complete May 1, 1970 studio recordings with George Harrison, which capture the pair performing together on nine tracks, including Dylan originals (“One Too Many Mornings,” “Gates of Eden,” “Mama, You Been On My Mind”), covers (the Everly Brothers’ “All I Have to Do Is Dream,” Carl Perkins’ “Matchbox”) and more.

Bob Dylan – 1970 comes housed in an eight-panel digipack featuring new cover art and liner notes by Michael Simmons.
