New Old Bob Dylan – “Dreamin’ Of You”

Tell Tale Signs, the eighth volume of Dylan’s Bootleg Series, is out in October. It’ll include previously unreleased material/alternate versions of songs from the last two decades (see Time Out Of Mine, Modern Times, Oh Mercy, and some odds-and-ends soundtrack appearances, etc). If you go to bobdylan.com and don’t mind signing up/registering you can download “Dreamin’ Of You.” I handed over my info and got the track — it’s a bluesy, well-produced recording from the 1997 Time Out Of Mind sessions with Daniel Lanois. (Because it’s Dylan, I need to listen again and pay attention to the lyrics.) If you aren’t into singing up for things, you can head here for a 30-second streaming clip.
