"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 Bob Dylan and Mark Knopfler recorded the last day was released on The Bootleg Series Volumes 1-3. The full band version from the first day of the sessions will now see the light as part of Springtime In New York: The Bootleg Series, Vol. 16 (1980-1985).
