Sony Releases Limited Edition Bob Dylan Outtakes Collection

Sony will issue a four-disc, 86-song Bob Dylan set, The 50th Anniversary Collection, in a limited European-only release. The set is comprised of rare recordings made in 1962.

Tracks included are "Mixed Up Confusion," "Sally Gal," "That's All Right, Mama", and "Baby, Please Don't Go."

A rep from the record label dished to Rolling Stone in further detail:

"Roughly 100 copies of the collection were given to random record stores in France, Germany, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Fans who logged onto Bob Dylan's official website from France or Germany in the final days of 2012 were also allowed to download the collection for 100 Euros."

"The copyright law in Europe was recently extended from 50 to 70 years for everything recorded in 1963 and beyond. With everything before that, there's a new 'Use It or Lose It' provision. It basically said, 'If you haven't used the recordings in the first 50 years, you aren't going to get any more,'" added the source.
