Bob Dylan’s next volume in his Bootleg Series is just a few weeks away, and now we have our first listen.
The Cutting Edge 1965-1966, set for Nov. 6 release, a time capsule of a landmark time in Dylan’s discography, in which he plugged into an amplifier, turned rock-ish, and created three seminal records: Bringing It All Back Home, Highway 61 Revisited, and Blonde on Blonde.
On Thursday, The Daily Beast debuted Take 1 of “Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window,” which is distinctly different from his Highway 61 version and boasts similarities to “Like a Rolling Stone.”

Vol. 12 will come with a robust 18-disc collector’s set for the most ravenous of fans that “will include every note recorded during the 1965-1966 sessions, every alternate take and alternate lyric.”
It’s the latest installment in bootlegs from Dylan, who previously released demos from 1962 to 1964; live performances from 1964, 1966, and 1975; outtakes from the sessions for 1970’s Self Portrait; and, most recently, his “basement tapes” recordings with The Band from 1967.
Head to The Daily Beast to hear “Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window.”
