    Maybe they go with a big box (like the Live 1966) for RTR/Desire in 2018. And then BS14 will come next year in 2019...

    I would be fine with something like that, although that's not what the rumor says. From SearchingForAGem:
    2 Jan 2018: A rumour on Facebook says that Bob Dylan's Bootleg Series Vol. 14 will be a "Completely Raw" deluxe box set from the 1989 Oh Mercy sessions, to be released on 5 Oct 2018. This may be a hoax, but more information will be added if available. Out-takes from Oh Mercy were of course released in 2008 on The Bootleg Series Vol. 8 - Tell Tale Signs.

    Personally, I think if they're going to split up BS and immersive tour boxes into two different series, I'd love them to focus on BOTT and Desire for BS14 and do a complete 1975-1976 tour box as a separate release. And both would tie in with the rumored doc coming out. They could save the Oh Mercy box for next year (or later than that, even. Methinks the Infidels sessions are more interesting).

    Hard to say if there is any substance to this, but Oh Mercy is pretty far down my wish list....73-78 and 83-87 in any/various incarnations is def more interesting at this point.

    I’d happily take an Oh Mercy set. Love that album.

    Alan seems inclined to dismiss it as a hoax elsewhere. The post that started it looks like a gag to me (and not an particularly clever one at that):

    “Bob Dylan bootleg series vol XIV: oh gees oh mercy 32 disc completely raw deluxe box to be released October 5th 2018”

    My 2018 prediction is new album this Spring (May or June) and a live RTR non-BS release this fall to coincide w/ the documentary. Next BLS will be 2019.

    While some version of BOTT / Desire / RTR is the bell that HAS to ring eventually, I absolutely love Oh Mercy and would gladly buy a "Complete Sessions" ("raw" or otherwise) box. On the other hand.....
    .... if this is the original rumor, it does have the whiff of "hoax" to it. Not impossible, though. After all, when a Bootleg Series built around the Self Portrait sessions was first rumored, it was widely dismissed by fans as "impossible." And an Oh Mercy set is actually one of the stated future project by Rolling Stone's Dylan "source," so....

    I bet that a lot of folks wouldn't have picked "Self Portrait" prior to "Another Self Portrait" so "Oh Mercy" makes perfect sense.

    I really really want them to do BOTT obviously, but anyone who has heard an Oh Mercy outtake boot knows there's some incredible material there. I'd happily take it.

    I would prefer an Oh Mercy set to a Blood on the Tracks set, but I think 2018 is finally the latter's year. The Scorcese documentary seems like a synergy opportunity too good for a major corporation like Columbia to pass up. But, then again, BOTT has been put on the back burner for the past five or so years, so I wouldn't be too surprised if it happened again. Bob's expressed some negative views on the album in the past, so I wonder if he's had any role in delaying things...

    Has there been any recent news about Scorcese's film?

    The longer they leave BoTT, the closer they get to perhaps having to release everything because of the Euro copyright rules. If that's the choice Sony must make, let it sit there for a few more years!

    Probably not true... although perhaps there is a delay in the Rolling Thunder doc????

    As much as I love Oh Mercy, they really need to put out the Blood on the Tracks set already.

    It's the "32 discs" bit of the post that makes it unbelievable to me.

    On the other hand a 32 disc box of live Rolling Thunder shows, outwith the Bootleg Series and along the lines of The 1966 Live Recordings box, is certainly feasible for this year.

    Agree. Seems hugely unlikely. That said, I’d buy it in an instant.

    I would prefer a new album with original material this year and to wait til 2019 for BS 14. The wealth of archival material we have gotten the past 3 years is staggering (Basement Tapes Complete, Cutting Edge, Live 1966 and now Trouble No More). Not complaining, but I could use another year to digest it properly....

  19. The last 2 Dylan archival releases have been live show based.2018 might be something studio based followed by Rolling Thunder box in 2019.

    I would really love a 1989 live box set. Actually a 1988 to 1990 g.e smith era box set is very close to the top of my wishlist

    Seems unlikely that the oh mercy sessions would fill 32 disks. It sound like Someone is taking the piss .

    The actual quote doesn't necessarily imply that it is the "Oh Mercy" LP sessions (at least my read of it). I think something might be brewing in Dylan's camp... have to release something this year!

    I’m interested in Oh, Mercy, although I’d be more interested in Infidels.
