Columbia Records/Legacy Recordings will release a new compilation album of Bob Dylan recordings, Live 1962-1966: Rare Performances from the Copyright Collections, on Friday (July 27) worldwide. This special Japanese Tour edition is being released worldwide by popular demand, according to an announcement from Legacy.

Live 1962-1966: Rare Performances from the Copyright Collections will be available digitally or on CD.

Most of the performances on the album have been previously available only on the extremely limited edition “50th Anniversary / Copyright Extension” albums (three highly collectible compilations—released in 2012, 2013 and 2014—of rare early Dylan recordings).

Across two discs’ worth of music, Live 1962-1966: Rare Performances from the Copyright Collections “chronicles Dylan’s transformation from groundbreaking acoustic ‘folk’ artist to iconic force of pop culture,” according to the press release.

The album features seminal recordings from the artist’s coffeehouse era (Gerde’s Folk City, 1962), his 1963 breakout concerts at New York’s Town Hall and Carnegie Hall, a duet with Joan Baez from the historic March on Washington (August 28, 1963), performances from his European and world tours of 1965 and 1966, moments from the 1964 and 1965 Newport Folk Festivals and more.
