The recordings on Bob Dylan - 1970 were first released in a limited edition on December 4th 2020 as part of the Bob Dylan - 50th Anniversary Collection copyright extension series (which began in 2012).
The official title of that release is the "50th Anniversary Collection: 1970" and it includes all the outtakes from the "New Morning" and "Self Portrait" album session that were not already included on "The Bootleg Series Vol. 10: Another Self Portrait", plus the legendary session with George Harrison.
The buzz surrounding these 1970 performances created a demand for a broader release - hence this 3CD set, newly titled as "1970".

Bob Dylan - 1970 includes previously unreleased outtakes from the sessions that produced Self Portrait and New Morning as well as the complete May 1, 1970 studio recordings with George Harrison, which capture the pair performing together on nine tracks, including Dylan originals ("One Too Many Mornings," "Gates of Eden," "Mama, You Been On My Mind"), covers (the Everly Brothers' "All I Have to Do Is Dream," Carl Perkins' "Matchbox") and more.

Bob Dylan - 1970 comes housed in an 8-panel digipack featuring new cover art and liner notes by Michael Simmons.
