The same take was also featured on The Best of Bob Dylan the following year. The complete recording session of "Shelter from the Storm" was released in 2018 on the deluxe edition of The Bootleg Series Vol. 14: More Blood, More Tracks, with Take 2 included on its single-CD and 2-LP versions.

"Shelter from the Storm" also appears on two live albums by Dylan — Hard Rain (from a May 1976 performance) and At Budokan (recorded in February 1978).more »
