Bob Dylan’s Next Bootleg Series Album Features Johnny Cash Sessions

Bob Dylan’s 15th Bootleg Series album is ‘Travelin’ Thru’ will feature unreleased material from ‘John Wesley Harding’, ‘Nashville Skyline’ and ‘Self Portrait’ including songs with Johnny Cash.

According to Dylan’s record label Columbia, “The full-day Dylan-Cash duet session included the first known version of ‘Wanted Man’ and the only version of the song ever sung by Dylan. The following week, Cash made it the opening song at his San Quentin concert. The session provides insight into the shared sensibilities of Dylan and Cash through a variety of covers including two Jimmie Rodgers medleys”.

In his liner notes for TRAVELIN’ THRU, Colin Escott writes, “Talking to journalist Matt Damsker about the sound of JOHN WESLEY HARDING, Dylan said, ‘I didn’t know how to record the way other people were recording, and I didn’t want to… I just didn’t think all that production was necessary.’ He also went for lyrical economy. ‘What I’m trying to do now is not use too many words,’ he said. ‘There’s no line you can stick your finger through. There’s no blank filler.'”

Dylan returned to Columbia Studio A in February 1969 to work on NASHVILLE SKYLINE.
“Bob asked me to be a guest on the album,” Johnny Cash said later, “and I went to the studio and they just turned on the recorder for about two hours.” Columbia Studio A hosted two Dylan-Cashsessions: February 17 and 18, 1969 with a band that included rock ‘n’ roll pioneer Carl Perkinsplaying guitar on six tracks (including his own composition, ‘Matchbox’). One of the more intriguing sonic discoveries on TRAVELIN’ THRU is ‘Don’t Think Twice, It’s Alright/Understand Your Man,’ as two singular singer/songwriters pay mutual compositional and vocal tribute to each other.

The album will be released on November 1, 2019.
