Columbia Records release the 13th volume of Bob Dylan’s Bootleg Series on November 3. It is titled ”Trouble No More” and covers the years 1979-1981, Dylan's period as a born again Christian. The principal release is a box set of 8 CD’s and a DVD. There also is a condensed version available as a double CD or as a 4 LP vinyl release. Columbia have learnt how to make Dylan fans part from their money! The DVD has live footage originally envisioned for a TV show that for some reason never materialized, and also some extra material. The live songs are intercut with short meditations written by Luc Sante which are read by Michael Shannon. The film was shown at New York Film Festival earlier this year. I had the opportunity to see it last weekend. Dylan’s concerts at the time were pretty fierce stuff. Here, the intensity is a little broken up by the intercut material. Michael Shannon is subdued and the words he teach are for the most part adequate, and not too intrusive for a non believer as myself.
