"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)."
