A: Infidels outtake
B: Infidels outtake; Taken From "Springtime In New York: The Bootleg Series, Vol. 16 (1980-1985)"

"Blind Willie McTell" was the first track seriously worked on at the "Infidels" sessions and the last attempted as recording concluded almost a month later. In the end, it did not make the "Infidels" album, but in 1991, the acoustic piano-guitar version that Bob Dylan and Mark Knopfler recorded the last day was released on "The Bootleg Series Volumes 1-3." This 7" features two previously unreleased takes of the song, with the A-side being exclusive to this vinyl release. The B-side (take 5) is included as part of "Springtime In New York: The Bootleg Series, Vol. 16 (1980-1985)."

I just received four copies. On all 4 the b-side is pressed off-centre, rendering the track unlistenable. I can’t be the only one.

Apologies for the US/UK country error.
I received my pre-ordered copy in the UK a day before the official release and so (wrongly) assumed it was a UK pressing. Error has been corrected.

Country is US, not UK. Third Man is a US label and it was pressed, manufactured and licensed in the USA.

Can see why the A-side it wasn't released before (the harmonica solo is a bit...off), but it's still a pretty excellent rendition. Side B is easily the weaker of the three versions which makes it a surprise that it's going to be on the next BS release. Definitely worth getting hold of though.
