Bob Dylan - Pretty Saro

Bob Dylan ran through the 18th century English folk song "Pretty Saro" six consecutive times during the Self Portrait sessions in March 1970, but none of those versions made the final cut for the album and the song remained in Columbia's vault for the past 43 years. The track never even leaked onto bootlegs, but on August 27th, it's finally coming out on Another Self Portrait, a 35-track box set of songs cut for Nashville Skyline, Self Portrait and New Morning




 To promote the set, filmmaker Jennifer Lebeau created a video for "Pretty Saro" utilizing images from the Farm Security Administration stored at the Library of Congress. "His vocal delivery is so haunting," she tells Rolling Stone. "I wanted to be able to visually represent that sort of unrequited love in a world that seems like it should be sad, but the people are always happy and fine."
