Bob Dylan has unveiled Travelin’ Thru, 1967-1969: The Bootleg Series Vol. 15. You can stream a 15-song sampler of the collection below, and purchase your own copy of the box set via Amazon.

The latest entry in the Bootleg Series centers around Dylan’s transitional time in Nashville recording 1967’s John Wesley Harding and 1969’s Nashville Skyline. As such, it features numerous alternate takes and demos from both albums, as well as the newly revealed Nashville Skyline outtake “Western Road”.

At the center of the collection are over 20 songs laid down by Dylan and country icon Johnny Cash during a two-day studio session at Columbia Studio A in 1969. Long sought after but never before released, the tracks include the pair’s take on “Girl from the North Country”, “I Walk the Line”, “Ring of Fire”, “Mountain Dew”, and their first attempt at recording “Wanted Man”. Six of the legendary recordings also feature guitar from rockabilly icon Carl Perkins.
