Blood On The Tracks Bootleg On The Way?

Bob Dylan's classic "Blood on the Tracks" album might be the next target in the ongoing dig into his archives.

An unnamed source tells Rolling Stone magazine that "Blood on the Tracks" -- which came out in 1975, is "the natural next one" for Bootleg Series; a "Blood" release would include some "very special" solo acoustic recordings Dylan made during the start of the album in New York, as well as unreleased material from sessions in both New York and Minneapolis, with two different bands.

But the source also told Rolling Stone that Dylan's camp has "a couple of things on our minds," including live and studio recordings from Dylan's born-again period during the late 70s and early 80s and the documentary film about the 1975-76 Rolling Thunder Revue tour.

Coming for sure, however, is "Bob Dylan in the 80s: Volume One," a tribute album that will feature covers by modern rockers such as Slash, Built To Spill, Glen Hansard, Deer Tick, the Hold Steady's Craig Finn and others. The set is due out March 25.
