Blind Willie McTell

Cat No: TMR740

A long-awaited release, this is the 7 version of the Bob Dylan Classic Blind Willie McTell, out exclusively on black vinyl on August 20, 2021.

The record will be available only at indie recordstores. The 7 features two previously unreleased takes of the song, with the A-side being exclusive to this vinyl release. The B-side (take 5) will be included as part of Spring In New York: The Bootleg Series,
Vol. 16 (1980-1985). The recordings on this single feature a formidable lineup of session musicians, including Mark Knopfler, Mick Taylor, Sly Dunbar and Robbie Shakespeare. Blind Willie McTell was the first track seriously worked on at the Infidels sessions and the last attempted as recording concluded almost a month later. In the end, it did not make the Infidels album, but in 1991, the acoustic piano-guitar version that Bob Dylan and Mark Knopfler recorded the last day was released on The Bootleg Series Volumes 1-3. The full band version from the first day of the
sessions will now see the light of day as part of Springtime In New York: The Bootleg Series, Vol. 16 (1980-1985).
