Bob Dylan to Release 1970 Sessions With George Harrison

Columbia Records and Legacy Records have announced the wide release of Bob Dylan – 1970 (50th Anniversary Collection), out on Feb. 26, 2021. The recordings will be released as a three-disc collection, and they were first shared on Dec. 4 as part of the Bob Dylan – 50th Anniversary Collection copyright extension series.

Bob Dylan – 1970 (50th Anniversary Collection) contains previously unreleased outtakes from Dylan’s Self Portrait and New Morning sessions. It also includes the complete and historic May 1, 1970 studio recordings with George Harrison.

A couple of weeks ago, Bob Dylan sold his entire discography to Universal Music Group in a landmark deal.
