Through the years, Bob Dylan has become about as well-known for his bootleg releases as he is for his studio albums. Now, even more rare material has popped up from the singer, and this time, a late member of the Beatles will be included in the mix.

The Bootleg Series, Vol. 10 - Another Self Portrait (1969-1971) is due out on August 27, and will feature never-before-heard session recordings and outtakes from Dylan’s albums Nashville Skyline (1969), Self Portrait (1970) and New Morning (1970).

The bootleg will also feature collaborations with the late George Harrison, who recorded two songs with Dylan in May of 1970 entitled “Time Passes Slowly” and “Working on a Guru,” Rolling Stone reports.

Self Portrait, a double album comprised of mostly covers, was released in June of 1970, and garnered mostly negative reviews from critics and fans alike as Dylan was utilizing a country-style singing voice that he’d adopted when recording Nashville Skyline. Released just months later, Dylan’s following album, New Morning, was much more well-received, with the singer returning to a more traditional sound.

According to the official press release, “Another Self Portrait gives fans a chance to reappraise the pivotal recordings that marked Dylan's artistic transformation as the 1960s ended and the 1970s began.”

Vol. 10
will be available in several formats, including a standard 35-track, two-disc version as well as a four-disc deluxe box set, which will feature live audio of Bob Dylan and the Band’s entire Isle of Wight Festival performance from August 31, 1969. Additionally, the album will be released on vinyl as three LPs with a special booklet.

Bob Dylan is currently in the midst of his Americanarama Tour with Wilco and My Morning Jacket.
