A 50th anniversary collection of recordings by Bob Dylan is scheduled for release on Feb 26.

Bob Dylan - 1970 includes previously unreleased outtakes and alternate versions from the sessions that produced Dylan’s albums Self Portrait and New Morning.

Still, arguably the most notable material on the three-disc collection is the complete May 1, 1970 studio recordings alongside George Harrison. They performed a total of nine tracks together, including Dylan originals, cover songs and even a rendition of the Beatles classic “Yesterday.”

The material has never seen wide public release, but this isn't the first time it has seen the light of day. These songs were earlier put on sale in a very limited edition in the U.K. to circumvent a European law stipulating that recordings enter the public domain 50 years after their creation if they aren’t officially released by their copyright holder. The collection sold out in seconds, as Dylan continues issuing archival material in order to avoid the legal distribution of third-party bootleg.

A complete track list for the Bob Dylan - 1970 50th Anniversary Collection can be found below.

Dylan recently grabbed headlines by selling his catalog publishing rights to Universal Music Publishing Group for a reported nine-figure sum.
