Bob Dylan has secretly released ‘Bob Dylan – 50th Anniversary Collection 1970’ which includes the rare sessions with former Beatle, George Harrison.

The recordings were put on sale quietly via the UK store Badlands. A European law stipulates that recordings enter the public domain 50 years after their creation if they aren’t officially released by the copyright holder.

Since 2012, Dylan has been releasing recordings to avoid legal bootlegs flooding the market. Many of the releases since 2012 would be of no interest to any one other devout Dylan fans. The recordings include repeated takes of songs. However, some of the recordings can fetch up to €1,000.

The new release is different as it would appeal to more people. It includes the rare session with George Harrison. The pair’s recording of the Beatles classic, ‘Yesterday’ has been published before, yet now the sound quality is infinitely better. You can check out a previous released version of ‘Yesterday’ below.

The collection sold out in minutes. It is a matter of time before the new release is available on certain parts of the internet. Also included in ‘Bob Dylan 50th Anniversary Collection 1970’ are recordings from the New Morning sessions where the Nobel prize winner is joined by organist Al Kooper, bassist Charlie Daniels, drummer Russ Kunkel, guitarist David Bromberg, bassist Stu Woods and drummer Alvin Rogers.

Bob Dylan fans should remain vigilant. The complete sessions for Greatest Hits Volume 2 should be released with out notice late next year. By 2024, Dylan will have to release every recording in his  vault from his Before The Flood tour with The Band.

Recently, a long lost collection of Bob Dylan went up for sale at auction. See how much the items went for here.
