Sony Music are to release The Cutting Edge, Volume 12 of their long running Bob Dylan Bootleg Series which will open up the vaults (in a big way) for the 1965-1966, and the Bringing It All Back HomeHighway 61 Revisited, and Blonde On Blonde sessions.

A six-CD deluxe edition of The Cutting Edge offers an abundance of alternate takes, and demos from some of Dylan’s most revered work including a whole disc devoted to Like A Rolling Stone (20 takes) and the scrappedBlonde On Blonde sessions with The Band.

The deluxe features every track from Bringing It All Back Home, Highway 61 Revisited and Blonde On Blonde in some form of alternate (many with multiple variations) with the exception of Maggie’s Farm and Gates of Eden.In total the deluxe edition offers over seven hours of priceless audio of Dylan in the studio in the mid-sixties.

If six discs aren’t enough, Sony will also be sating the appetite of the hardcore Dylan fans with a mammoth 18-disc edition of The Cutting Edge: The Bootleg Series Vol 12 1965-1966 which is said to include “every single note recorded by Bob Dylan in the studio in 1965/1966″. In total, 379 tracks. This will come with nine mono vinyl singles, a 180-page hardcover book and is limited to 5,000 units. It won’t be repressed.

If this is all too much you can opt for ‘highlights’ set, The Best of The Cutting Edge, which gives you a selection of 36-tracks across two CDs complete with a 60-page booklet. This ‘Best Of’ is also available as a deluxe vinyl 3LP set which will include the two CDs.
