Bob Dylan: Travelin’ Thru, 1967-1969: The Bootleg Series, Vol. 15 (Legacy Recordings)

The meeting of minds between Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash has long been the thing of legend, but now the legend is made real with a three disc set that chronicles Dylan’s Nashville country years, featuring the historic session, as well as outtakes from his two albums from this time and an incongruous Earl Scruggs session recorded in 1970. It’s an exciting and compelling document of Dylan’s reinvention as a country crooner.

The Artist Formerly Known As Prince: Ultimate Rave (NPG/Legacy)

At the end of 1999, Prince reemerged, signed to a new record label with his first new album of newly recorded, non-archival material. This three-disc set compiles the original record, a rare fan-club only release, and a DVD of his New Year’s Eve 1999 pay-per-view concert. Though more a stutter-step than the intended comeback, it proved that The Artist was still Prince.

Bob Dylan: The Real Royal Albert Hall 1966 Concert! (Columbia/Legacy Recordings)

One of the most notorious bootlegs in rock and roll history has also been erroneously credited.
