Even the most casual of Dylan fans can identify Bob’s 1969 duet with Johnny Cash, “Girl From the North Country.” Cash fans will also know Dylan penned his song “Wanted Man,” and the Man in Black frequently covered Bob’s songs over the years.
If you ever wondered if the two music icons ever played more songs together, wonder no more!
Announced today, the upcoming 15th volume of Dylan’s long-running Bootleg Series—Travelin’ Thru: 1967-1969—gathers unreleased recordings from their 1969 duet session and Bob’s appearance on The Johnny Cash Show, in addition to outtakes from 1967’s John Wesley Harding and 1969’s Nashville Skyline.
All in all, the Dylan vaults show no sign of running low on A-grade material yet.
