With Dylan coming to Utah on Aug. 1, it is dually exciting that Columbia Records will release Bob Dylan's "The Bootleg Series, Vol. 10 - Another Self Portrait (1969-1971)" on August 27.

The set contains 35 rarities and previously unreleased recordings. The unreleased recordings, demos and alternate takes on "Another Self Portrait" — drawn mainly from the 1970 studio recording sessions that resulted in the official 1970 albums "Self Portrait" and "New Morning" albums are said to "shed new light on an essential and pivotal period in the artist's ongoing musical evolution." By the way, those albums are regarded by many to be among the worst Dylan ever released. From the press release: The original Self Portrait, released in June 1970, was Dylan's tenth studio album and his first to receive real pans from the music press ("What is this s___?" was literally the opening sentence of Greil Marcus's review in Rolling Stone while Robert Christgau gave the album a "C PLUS" rating in the Village Voice).

Marcus writes the liner notes for this set. interestingly enough.
