Bob Dylan’s massive Rolling Thunder Revue box set will feature over 100 previously unreleased live recordings taken from the first leg of the musician’s famed 1975 tour. The 14-disc set will be released June 7th via Columbia Records/Legacy Recordings.

Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Revue tour took place between 1975 and 1976 and found the musician playing theater shows with little advanced notice. The tour famously featured Joan Baez, Roger McGuinn and Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, while one-off special guests included Ringo Starr, Patti Smith and Joni Mitchell.

Rolling Thunder Revue: The 1975 Live Recordings will boast five complete Dylan sets from shows that took place between October and December 1975 in Worcester, Cambridge and Boston, Massachusetts, as well as Quebec, Canada. The collection will also include recently unearthed audio from rehearsals as well as a bonus disc of rare performances.

The box set will come with a 52-page booklet featuring some never-before-seen photographs from the Rolling Thunder Revue, plus an essay from novelist and musician Wesley Stace. The set is available to pre-order and is available digitally and on CD.

A selection of songs on the Rolling Thunder Revue box set were previously featured on 2002’s The Bootleg Series Vol. 5, which will also be reissued as a three-LP vinyl set with a 64 page booklet.

Rolling Thunder Revue: The 1975 Live Recordings will notably serve as a companion piece to Martin Scorsese’s upcoming documentary Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese, which will hit Netflix and select theaters June 12th. The film is expected to feature a rare on-camera interview with Dylan, as well as other performers from the tour.
