Bob Dylan offers Tell Tale Signs, plus tour news from The Who

This just in from a pair of musical giants...

Bob Dylan's Tell Tale Signs -- the eighth installment in the best-selling Bootleg Series launched in 1991 - will be released by Columbia Records on Tuesday, October 7. Available in multiple formats, Tell Tale Signs will feature previously unreleased recordings and alternate versions of tracks from sessions which generated some of Bob Dylan’s most acclaimed and commercially successful albums from the last two decades, including Time Out Of Mind, Love And Theft, Modern Times and Oh Mercy. (Full track listing is here.) For a limited time, bobdylan.com will feature a free download of “Dreamin’ Of You,” a fully-produced recording from Dylan’s 1997 sessions with producer Daniel Lanois, which spawned Time Out Of Mind. Today (July 29) also marks the launch of a completely redesigned bobdylan.com.

Meanwhile over at TheWho.com, the boys are gearing up for their upcoming U.S. dates with exclusive weekly pre-sales and VIP packages to fan club members. Set to kick off on October 21st at The Palace Of Auburn Hills in Detroit, the tour is currently booked with ten dates, including stops in Boston, Philadelphia, New Jersey, Washington DC and ending with two gigs at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on November 8 & 9. Ticket pre-sales are exclusively offered to ‘Official Wholigans’ fan club members; anyone can sign up now on TheWho.com to get access to pre-sales and other fan club benefits.

I was blown away by the free download of "Dreamin of You" -- it's actually in the running for one of my favorite Bob Dylan songs. I mean, I loved the seventh Bootleg release, but the less cover songs and the more Dylan originals the better!
