Yes, that is the one I am referring to. My Dylan collection is complete up to Nashville Skyline but after that it gets a bit patchy (especially after Desire) and I have never heard Self Portrait before so this seemed like a good purchase. One of the discs is just a remastered version of the original album but there is also a live disc with the Band. It's also not just Self Portrait outtakes. There is a fair bit of stuff from New Morning too. It is definitely expensive but if you are into fancy packaging it is (almost) worth it.

As a huge Prince fan I dearly wish that he had his own "Bootleg Series" type of releases. He has tons of unreleased material but doesn't seem keen on making it available.

Is there a particular Dylan era that you would like to see further explored? I guess the obvious example would be more material from The Basement Tapes sessions.
