Bob Dylan could arguably have one of the largest and most diverse discographies of any living musician. So it repeatedly comes as a surprise to his fans when never-heard-before and rare recordings turn up, adding even more to his ever-expanding repertoire.

On Tuesday, not only were a few extremely rare recordings discovered…. There were 149 tracks in total that not even the most diehard Dylan fans were aware of.

According to ABC News Radio, record collector Jeff Gold is the proud new owner of 149 Dylan acetates, including unfinished tunes performed during the recording sessions for 1969’s ‘Nashville Skyline’ and 1970’s ‘Self Portrait’ and ‘New Morning’.

Gold, who explained to RecordMecca that the recordings were left behind in a New York City room that Dylan used as studio, has placed a couple of his prized possessions up for sale. Prices on the items range from $1,750 to $7,000, but considering someone just spent $2 million on the first handwritten draft of ‘Like a Rolling Stone, these prices seem to be a steal.

Dylan collectors are specifically interested in alternate and unreleased versions of Johnny Cash’s ‘Ring of Fire’ and ‘Folsom Prison Blues’.
