This unique collection of songs draws mainly upon Columbia’s Bootleg Series, an ever-expanding collection of outtakes, alternate versions, live performances and lesser-known songs from the incomparable Bob Dylan.
Some of these songs stand comparison with the Dylan classics and several shed light on the variety of his astonishing career of over fifty years, including his very distinctive approach to writing and recording.
All the music has been specially transcribed and in each case is based faithfully on a specific Dylan recording. Together they form a Bob Dylan songbook with a difference: a celebration of some of his less familiar songs and performances that enhances the reputation of an already universally acclaimed musical giant.
The Bob Dylan: Bootleg Songbook is arranged for Piano, Voice and Guitar and includes full-page photographs, as well as background notes for each of the 35 featured songs.
