Another Self Portrait (1969-1971) by Bob Dylan

Bob Dylan's Another Self-Portrait, the tenth volume of the Bootleg Series, includes four CDs that will delight any Dylan fan that longs for his Nashville Skyline, Self Portrait, folk-roots days. While the original Self Portrait album was panned in 1970 by fans who weren't interested in hearing Dylan return to his roots, it is worth a listen now and especially in this remastered and reimagined form. Also included in the set is the full 1969 Isle of Wight concert with The Band, as well as some wonderful and insightful liner notes.

Bert Jansch

This innovative Scottish guitarist and songwriter was influential both as a solo artist and as a key member of the popular British folk-rock group Pentangle during the 1960s and 70s.  His subject matter was often dark, as in one of his most famous songs, "Needle of Death", and his delivery restrained but very affecting. Jansch died in October 2011 at the age of 67. If you've never heard his music, give it a listen!
