Editors’ Notes This exhaustive volume of previously unheard Bob Dylan outtakes, rehearsals, song sketches, and alternates of hits chronicles The Bard during his most prolific years—the mid-’60s sessions that gave us Bringing It All Back Home, Highway 61 Revisited, and Blonde on Blonde. Revelatory, sometimes raw variants of songs like “Like a Rolling Stone” (this set includes the entire 20-take session) and “Just Like a Woman” show how Dylan could masterfully alter a lyrical sentiment, and even its meaning, with simple vocal, and sometimes musical, shifts in phrasing and tone.
