In the latest chapter in Columbia/Legacy’s highly acclaimed Bob Dylan Bootleg Series , they showcase the music Dylan wrote and performed during one of the most surprising, controversial and inspired periods of his career. See what’s inside Dylan’s ‘Trouble No More – The Bootleg Series’.
As the 1970s ended and the 1980s began, Dylan responded to the changing of the decades with a three album trilogy–Slow Train Coming (1979), Saved (1980) and Shot of Love (1981)–of spirit-filled songs of praise, worship and devotion.
These songs were as deeply personal and packed with poetics as any Dylan had ever written, but the force of conviction and power of faith evident in these performances baffled segments of Dylan’s fanbase (just as Dylan’s “going electric” had alienated folk purists in 1965).
The deluxe box set includes a hardcover book featuring an introduction by Dylan scholar Ben Rollins with liner notes by Amanda Petrusich, Rob Bowman and Penn Jillette.
Here’s some videos from the 1980’s that showcases Bob’s spirital side.
