5.0 out of 5 stars Up there with Dylan's best, 31 Dec. 2013
This review is from: Another Self Portrait (1969-1971): The Bootleg Series Vol. 10 (Audio CD)
I'm so glad I bought this, the 2 disc edition. Whilst I would love to have the deluxe set with the full live performance, I am absolutely delighted with this standard edition. "Another Self Portrait" is beautifully sequenced and is conceptually and musically superior to "Self Portrait". It takes you on a gorgeous journey into Americana, continuing the trip started with the Big Pink basement sessions through John Wesley Harding, Nashville Skyline and into New Morning. To me, this music achieves the same ambitions as a John Ford western. Majestic and intimate, sweeping and affectionate. Nostalgia can be sweet in measured doses and it's a pity that the original "Self Portrait" album ended up being so muddled and forced. The Bootleg Series has once again come up with gold. Buy with confidence.

An excellent review - I bought this set a couple of months back, but your 'John Ford Western' analogy will enable me to appreciate it afresh.

Thank you very much :-) I have been listening to it repeatedly during Xmas.
