SELF PORTRAIT is the tenth studio album by Bob Dylan, released on June 8, 1970, by Columbia Records.
SELF PORTRAIT was Dylan's second double album (after BLONDE ON BLONDE), and features many cover versions of well-known pop and folk songs. Also included are a handful of instrumentals and original compositions.
Most of the album is sung in the affected country crooning voice that Dylan had introduced a year earlier on NASHVILLE SKYLINE. Seen by some as intentionally surreal and even satirical at times, SELF PORTRAIT received extremely poor reviews upon release; Greil Marcus' opening sentence in his ROLLING STONE review was: "What is this shit?"
Below are the songbooks, copyright Big Sky Music, 1970.
