Bob Dylan’s Nashville Skyline Outtakes Sold on eBay

An original master recording of outtakes from Bob Dylan’s Nashville Skyline sessions has apparently sold on eBay for $30,000. The tape was offered by a consortium of Ampersand Records USA, Lake Carmel Music and Navybob LLC. The auction was for the recording itself — not the intellectual rights that would allow it to be commercially released. The one-inch, eight-track analog tape runs for 27 minutes and includes five outtakes of Dylan’s hit, “Lay Lady Lay,” and an unreleased jam session of “Going Back to Chicago.” The recording was made on Feb. 14, 1969 at the Columbia Studio on Nashville’s Music Row and has been stored in a New Jersey warehouse for almost 18 years.
