Bob Dylan may follow up his latest Bootleg Series release,The Rolling Thunder Revue: The 1975 Live Recordings, with a collection of recordings he did in the late '60s.
A Dylan source tells Rolling Stone, "We’re thinking about possibly doing Bob’s work in Nashville from John Wesley Harding through the Johnny Cash sessions... The outtakes from that period have never been heard.”
The Cash sessions refer to when The Man in Black joined Bob on February 18th, 1969 at the end of the sessions for [Dylan's]Nashville Skyline album.
They turned out a re-recording of Dylan's “Girl From the North Country,” which is on Nashville Skyline, but they did more that day, which has never been released. Among the songs they cut are “Wanted Man” -- which Cash played at San Quentin just one week after the session -- “Matchbox,” “Mystery Train,” “You Are My Sunshine,” “Ring of Fire,” “Careless Love” and “Big River.”
The source adds, “We’re trying to find one really good take of each song. The giant dumps of everything like we’ve done in recent years really aren’t my preference. I like stuff that is more curated.”
