Bob Dylan will release a new box set titled The Complete Budokan 1978 on Nov. 17.
Bob Dylan Set Includes Three Dozen Unreleased Tracks
The collection includes two full performances by Dylan that were recorded on 24-channel multitrack analog tapes at Tokyo’s Nippon Budokan Hall on Feb. 28 and March 1, 1978.

Of the set’s 58 tracks, 36 are previously unreleased.
The Complete Budokan 1978, which is currently available for preorder, will be released in four CD and digital formats. An eight-LP version will be released in Japan only; Another Budokan 1978, a two-LP set featuring 16 specially selected unreleased tracks from the box set will be available everywhere else.
“We mixed the record with the keyword ‘passion’ in mind,” engineer Tom Suzuki said in a press release. “The result is a mix that surpasses the original 1978 release, providing a crisper and clearer sound where each instrument and Bob Dylan’s voice are distinctly audible.”
You can see a complete track listing below, as well as listen to a song from the set, “The Man in Me.”

Dylan performed eight shows at Nippon Budokan Hall in 1978, his first in Japan. That year, Dylan released a live album – first in Japan followed by a global release – from the two shows called Bob Dylan at Budokan.
