Bob Dylan will release his next archival package, “The Bootleg Series Vol. 16: Springtime in New York”, on September 17th. The latest chapter in Columbia/Legacy’s highly acclaimed Bob Dylan Bootleg Series revisits an often-forgotten, rich vein in Dylan’s vast and complex catalogue, shining fresh light on the provocative new musical directions Dylan was taking as a songwriter and a recording artist from 1980 through 1985.

The newist installment of his ongoing out-takes and demo’s highlights the years 1981 through 1985. The project will be available in three formats: a two-CD version, a two-LP edition and a five-CD deluxe box set.

According to a press release, the set will include “unreleased outtakes, alternate takes, rehearsal recordings, live performances and more.” A full-band take on “Too Late,” a folky early version of an “Infidels” outtake “Foot of Pride,” has been released in advance of the set. (“Foot of Pride” appeared on 1991’s The Bootleg Series Volumes 1-3 (rarte and Unreleased) 1961-1991.

The track listing for The Bootleg Series Vol. 16 – which includes material surrounding the making of 1981’s “Shot Of Love”, 1983’s “Infidels” and the 1985 “Empire Burlesque” is available to order at Dylan’s website.

In June, Dylan released a two-hour compilation film, Bob Dylan “Odds and Ends”, featuring archival footage, unused clips from earlier Dylan documentaries and other material from throughout his career.

He also recently issued “Shadow Kingdom” -taped concert that marked his first performance since 2019; the 12-track movie, directed by Alma Har’el, starred Dylan fronting a small house band in a speakeasy.
