What can be said about Bob Dylan these days or about his enormous output over the years? Always able to reinvent himself, seemingly at the drop of a hat, he has an extraordinary capacity for still providing surprise. With this eight-disc set, we have a remarkable range of both older, well-known material and a batch of previously unreleased tracks. A compilation that will appeal to fans everywhere.

Dylan’s ‘Bootleg’ series has led to enormous speculation about whether they’re genuinely ‘bootlegs,’ albums that often have a rough heart and feel. In truth, it’s hard to say with this series, and Vol 13 has excellent quality sound, recording values and comes complete with a booklet of comprehensive info about the recordings themselves. The two previous Vol 11 & Vol 12 sets, have both picked up Grammy awards and this latest edition looks likely to complete the hat-trick.

Cds in the set feature a variety of performances from Live recordings to straight studio takes and feature recording from both sides of the Atlantic and range across his material from the late-70s through the early 80s. Dylan’s well-known and often commented upon conversion to Christianity figures in his Canadian, Toronto, concerts while his Earls Court, London, performance discs are wedded to his back-catalogue with tracks including, Mr Tambourine Man, Maggie’s Farm, Just Like A Woman, and Like A Rolling Stone. The overall result is pretty much an essential release for fans of Dylan everywhere.
