**LAST FEW REMAINING COPIES**
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 record
stores and the Third Man Records online and physical stores.
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).
