Here are some of the songs topping the charts from music hot spots around the world.
Worldcrunch's pick of the week is Bob Dylan's "Pretty Saro", a single which features on the latest album of his bootleg series Another Self Portrait (1969–1971), released on August 27.
The compilation revisits the songs of what is commonly considered as Dylan's worst album, Self Portrait. The liner notes were even written by Greil Marcus, who wrote the original Self Portrait review for the magazine Rolling Stone in 1970 that infamously asked, "What is this shit?" Out of 24 songs, there are five new tracks, four are 1969 live performances, and the rest are covers of traditional and popular folk songs. All the tracks offer a new approach of Dylan's forever changing mood and music.
