Bob Dylan Creates New <i>Self-Portrait</i> for Bootleg Series


Though Bob Dylan is best known for his musical talents, he wants to remind the world that he can do other stuff, too, with the new collection Another Self Portrait (1969-1971).

Adding “Artiste” and “He Who Plays With Words” to his resume, he’s chosen to adorn the cover of his album with, you guessed it: another self portrait. The forthcoming LP aptly hearkens back to his 1970 album Self Portrait. The first album didn’t receive the best reviews, but Dylan certainly wasn’t fazed.

Another Self Portrait, which contains outtakes from the sessions for Self Portrait and its follow-up, New Morning, is due for release on Aug. 27. Columbia Records said on Tuesday that the album—released in a two-disc and a four-disc-edition—will include a live recording of the music legend and his band performing at the Isle of Wight festival in 1969, along with demos of songs like “Went to See the Gypsy,” “If Not For You,” “Wigwam” and “All the Tired Horses.”
