Bob Dylan’s bootleg series sets sight on his time in Nashville for its next release. 

A three-disc package, the release highlights Dylan’s sought-after sessions with country great Johnny Cash, as well as cuts from 1967’s “John Wesley Harding” sessions and 1969’s country-rock revolution “Nashville Skyline,” Rolling Stone reports.

The upcoming bootleg includes a Cash-Dylan medley of Jimmie Rodgers’ music, a cover of “You Are My Sunshine” and a take of “Wanted Man,” a song penned by Dylan featured heavily in Cash canon. 

It includes seven takes from illusive “John Wesley Harding,” which Dylan cut with premier Nashville players in a three-day period.

Dylan enthusiasts can score the release — titled “Bob Dylan (Featuring Johnny Cash) — Travelin’ Thru, 1967–1969: The Bootleg Series Vol. 15” — as soon as Nov. 1, according to Rolling Stone.  

Dylan recorded a total three albums in Nashville from 1966 to 1969, “Blonde on Blonde,” “John Wesley Harding” and “Nashville Skyline.” 

The Dylan Bootleg series launched in 1991; highlights this decade include “The Basement Tapes Complete,” “The 1966 Live Recordings” and “The Rolling Thunder Revue: The 1975 Live Recordings.”
