Bob Dylan has announced volume 17 of his Bootleg Series. The record, titled Fragments – Time Out of Mind Sessions (1996-1997), compiles unreleased recordings including studio outtakes and alternate versions, as well as live versions recorded between 1997 and 2001. It also includes a new remix of Time Out of Mind. The release comes as a 5xCD or 10xLP box set, as well as in abridged versions. It’s out January 27. Listen to an alternate version of “Love Sick” below.
Among the rarities are early versions of Time Out of Mind songs from the 1996 Teatro sessions with Daniel Lanois, Tony Garnier, and Tony Mangurian. When sessions began in earnest at Miami’s Criteria Studio the following year, Bucky Baxter, Duke Robillard, Cindy Cashdollar, and many more joined proceedings, and many of their unreleased takes feature here. The completed work won the 1998 Grammy for Album of the Year. Find the new box set’s full tracklist on Dylan’s website.
