Bob Dylan has produced just 100 copies of his new album – and he’s hidden a handful of them in selected record shops across Britain, The Sun reports.

It’s like Charlie And The Chocolate Factory’s Golden Ticket for the folk legend’s fans.

The four-CD album – The 50th Anniversary Collection – features 86 live tracks and studio outtakes recorded by Dylan in 1962-63.

The tracks include a previously unheard version of his classic "Blowin’ In The Wind."

Dylan’s record company, Sony, have produced the super-limited edition to avoid losing control of the songs under EU copyright rules.

Just 100 have been pressed and sent to specialist record collector shops in Britain, Germany, France and Sweden.

Fans better hurry as copies of the most exclusive album ever made are already being sold for $1,000 on eBay.

You can expect that figure to go even higher.
