Bob Dylan’s Tell Tale Signs

The eighth volume in Bob Dylan’s official “bootleg” series, Tell Tale Signs, arrives in stores today, handsomely packaged and sounding for all the world not like a collection of leftovers, but like a lost Dylan masterpiece. Its 27 songs– including outtakes, alternate recordings, soundtrack material, and live cuts from 1989’s Oh Mercy all the way through 2006’s Modern Times– confirm that this current period of Dylan’s career is among the best, if not the best, and that the music he’s making today is as challenging, rewarding, and vital as anything he’s ever done.

I’ll have a full review up soon. Until then, here’s a glowing review from my friend Thom Jurek, and a poignant homage from my friend Andy Whitman.
