Bob Dylan - Trouble No More - The Bootleg Series Vol. 13 / 1979-1981 will be released on Friday, November 3.
The deluxe box set edition includes eight CDs and a DVD of Trouble No More: A Musical Film, a new feature-length film incorporating previously unseen footage from Dylan's 1980 tours.
As the 1970s ended and the 1980s began, Dylan released an acclaimed, if divisive trilogy, Slow Train Coming (1979), Saved (1980) and Shot of Love (1981), described by the singer's record company, Columbia/Legacy as `spirit-filled songs of praise, worship and devotion.'
The deluxe box set also features a hardcover book featuring an introduction by Dylan scholar Ben Rollins with liner notes by Amanda Petrusich, Rob Bowman and Penn Jillette.
