Bob Dylan's controversial "born again" period will be the subject of the next entry in his Bootleg Series.

Trouble No More -- The Bootleg Series Vol. 13/1979-1981 will cover the three albums Dylan recorded after embracing Christianity (he's since returned to Judaism) -- 1979's Mark Knopfler produced Slow Train Coming, 1980's Saved and 1981's Shot Of Love -- on a massive eight-disc/DVD collection.

Due out November 3, Trouble No More includes 100 previously unreleased studio and live recordings, the latter coming from a 1980 shows in Toronto and 1981 concerts in London. The bonus DVD includes Trouble No More -- A Musical Film which features unreleased footage from Dylan's 1980 tour and more, as well as full-performance videos of six songs. The film will be premiered at the New York Film Festival this fall before the box set's release.
