ALIAS - THE SIDEMAN STORY. VOLUME 1.
ALIAS - THE SIDEMAN STORY. VOLUME 2.
ALIAS - THE SIDEMAN STORY. VOLUME 3.
ALIAS - THE SIDEMAN STORY. VOLUME 4. (Cash & Ginsberg)
ALIAS - THE SIDEMAN STORY. VOLUME 5. Great series of discs that feature hard to find tracks that Bob played on. Contains all those early session work that we've read about and never heard. Some wasted tracks included (We are the World? - oy), but some neat stuff with a variety of artists.
A LEGEND IN HIS TIME (3) Career spanning rarities, live tracks and outtakes. Lots of special moments, superb stuff.
FROM THE VAULTS. VOLUME ONE. (2) A mind blowing set of songs purported to have been available as
downloads from the official Bobdylan.com site. Highly reccomend and perhaps one the best of the live
compilations available. Them Columbia vaults hold too much good stuff that needs to be released. So
many highlights - so little time.
FROM THE VAULTS. VOLUME 2. (2) More sensational tracks, mostly from 1998 & 1999. Can't wait for the
BOBDYLAN.COM - MASTERS. Outstanding (and clean!) cuts from the official site with little overlap with the From The Vault Series. Recommended.
BOBDYLAN.COM FIELD RECORDINGS. SPRING AND SUMMER 1999.
BOBDYLAN.COM USA TOUR. JANUARY - FEBRUARY 1999
B0BDYLAN.COM FIELD RECORDINGS 1998.
BOB DYLAN.COM FIELD RECORDINGS 1992-1997. These discs are among the myriad claiming some
connection to the official Columbia site. I do believe that some of the recordings are from other sources. Regardless of source, lots of high sound quality and terrific performances.
SINGING WITH THE CROW: SPECIAL DUETS. Nice collection of duets with Joan Baez, Pete Segar, Willie
Nelson, Bruce Springsteen.
HARD TO FIND. VOLUME ONE. Consists of 21 commercially available, but often difficult or near impossible
to find tracks, i.e. The Hearts of Fire Soundtrack. Nice gap filler.
HARD TO FIND: VOLUME TWO. EXTRAOARDINARY PERFORMANCES 1975-1995. Varied collection of live
tracks. High quality recordings all. Maybe the weakest of the HTF series, but still a nice disc.
HARD TO FIND: Volume III: EVEN HARDER TO FIND. A cornocopia of goodies with a just a ton of cool stuff.
From the 1968 Woody Gutherie Tribute with the Band to the hard to find evening performances from
Newport with Joanie. Excellent.
HARD TO FIND: VOLUME IV: HARDEST TO FIND (LOST DIAMONDS 1986-1996). Another strong collections
of live tracks - has a number of songs with Van Morrison. There's an incredible version of "One Irish
Rover" with Van that I just can't get out of my head.
THE GENUINE BOOTLEG SERIES. VOLUME ONE. (3)
THE GENUINE BOOTLEG SERIES. TAKE 2. (4)
THE GENUINE BOOTLEG SERIES. THE THIRD ONE NOW. (3) A career spanning collective of important
outtakes, alternative versions, unreleased gems and even some live nuggets. I am missing a couple of
tracks here and there, however, this is the g-o-o-d stuff.
TESTAMENT: RARE & UNRELEASED TRACKS, 1961-1992. A varied collection of 17 cuts including a terrific
duet with the great John Lee Hooker. Got some fun stage chat throughout. The accompanying booklet
has an essay written in German.
RARE LIVE PERFORMANCES OF THE SIXTIES. VOLUME 1
RARE LIVE PERFORMANCES OF THE SIXTIES. VOLUME 2
RARE LIVE PERFORMANCES OF THE SIXTIES. VOLUME 3. These 3 discs contain the 1962 Finjun show, the
Gaslight tapes & some Witmark demos. Extraordinary stuff from a young, reedy, Dylan.
ACETATES ON THE TRACKS. VOLUME 1. (1962-1965)
ACETATES ON THE TRACKS. VOLUME 2. (1965-1974)
ACETATES ON THE TRACKS. VOLUME 3. (1974-1984)
ACETATES ON THE TRACKS. VOLUME 4. (1964-1994) Nice series, albeit misnamed, consisting of studio
outtakes from each era. Fills in alot of blanks and each disc has some impressive moments.
DIGNITY. An ecclectic mix of studio outtakes from 1962-1995 - nice to get some Wilbury's stuff.
TV GUIDE. (2). The set contains songs performed on TV from the 1964 Steve Allen Show to Farm Aid &
Saturday Night Live. Neat idea thought the sound quality varies.
JOHN BUCKLEM TAPE. From 1958 it is virtually unlistenable with very low sound quality for the handful of
songs. You can't make much of it out, but it's historic.
THE DYLAN'S ROOT. Contains the East Orange, NJ songs from February/1961 and 7 cuts from the
November/1961 Carnegie Chapter Hall show in New York City. Excellent sound quality throughout.
IN THE PINES. Splendid collection. Features 2 cuts from the Carnegie Show, 7 Cuts from the Bear Club, 9
Leeds Demos - all clean plus 2 outtakes. Nice packaging to boot. Recommend!
HARD TIMES IN NEW YORK CITY 1961-1962. Nice collection on a single disc of early stuff from Gerde's & Cynthia Gooding's apartment. Much of it available elsewhere, some nowhere else.
THE MINNESOTA TAPES. (3). May & December/1961. Simply astonishing. Features the Beecher Apartment
stuff along with the Minnesota Party tapes. Some 50 folk songs from Woody Gutherie & Jesse Fuller to Big
Joe Williams and the Rev. Gary Davis. Critical to understanding where Bobby came from.
ECHO'S ALBUM. (2) Splendid collection of important early stuff. Contains the July/1961 Riverside Church,
The April/1962 Gerde's Folk City, the February/1964 Quest Show, the April/1963 Bear, the Feburary/1963
Skip Weshner, the October/1962 Billy Fair, the May/1964 Hallelulah, the the July/1963 WNEW show.
Consistantly high sound quality - surprising considering the recording technology of the day. Setlist only.
THE FINJAN CLUB. This is an early Dylan folk club performance in Montreal in July/1962. Delightful listen,
not up to today's sound quality, but still pretty good.
FOLKSINGER'S CHOICE. A terrific 1962 studio inteview with Cynthia Gooding with about 10 in studio
songs performed. A Real stunner.
BROADSIDE. Includes the WBAI show performance along with Broadside Demo's and a little of the 1963
March of Washington Performance.
THE BANJO TAPE & NYC TOWN HALL. Entertaining disc consisting of a party tape really with Bob playing
with Village Folkie, Happy Traum (on banjo) and then the April/1963 Town Hall performance.
BOB DYLAN IN CONCERT. Recorded and scheduled for release by Columbia in 1963. Includes the original
cover art as well.
STEALIN' THE LOST TAPES '61-'63. Assorted stuff with the band as well asan incongrous 4 bonus tracks from Woodstock
FREEWHEELIN' OUTTAKES. Essential unreleased material from the 1963 album. It sill blow your mind how
good this unreleased stuff is. Major.
THE WITMARK DEMOS. (2). A shattering set of demos laid down with just guitar and harmonica.
STUDS TERKEL'S WAX MUSEUM. May/1963 radio interview with the legendary Chicago broadcaster and
journalist. Studs is quite taken with the young Dylan, he cajoles him into 7 in studio songs.
BEFORE THE FLOOD AND AFTER THE FIRE. Contains the Terkel show with 2 bonus tracks.
FROM NEWPORT TO THE ANCIENT EMPTY STREET IN LA. (2) Consists of the complete Newport Folk
Festival day performances from 1964 & 1965 along with the best version of the 1965 Hollywood Bowl show
with the Band. Dylan plugs in and changes the planet. Big.
FOLK ROGUE. Just an incredible collection of Bob's Newport Folk Festival performances including
workshops. Hear Bob asking the audience for a harmonica to play for Mr. Tambourine Man. So cool.
1965 REVISITED (14) I actually bid a couple of hundred bucks on Ebay for this and didn't get it. Hence I don't have the artwork and packaging which I hear is incredible. Contains a mix of outtakes, interviews and live concerts. Fourteen discs!
THE CIRCUS IS IN TOWN. Sweet single disc. Half from a July 19, 1965 show, the other half from a June 26,
ELECTIRC BLACK NITE CRASH. Real good sounding single disc of the Hollywood Bowl show of
Spetember 3, 1965. Title from a poem in Dylan's Tarantula in case you were wondering.
HALLOWEEN MASK. The Amazing October 31, 1965 show with a handful of duets with then flame Joan
Baez. Hear a young, happy, jivin', laughin' Bob. "I've got my Bob Dylan Mask on." A phenomonal piece of
THE EMMETT GROGAN ACETATES. Mostly outtakes from "Another Side" recorded in 1964. Has that rare
version of "Mr. Tambourine Man" with Ramblin' Jack Elliott. I just read in Sonny Barger's autobiography
that Emmett Grogan suggested to the Stones that they hire the Hell's Angels as security at Altamonte.
LIKE A ROLLING STONE. 16(Sixteen!) takes on the mighty song.
NOW'S THE TIME FOR YOUR TEARS. The beautfiul solo show from May/1965 at the Free Trade Hall.
7 YEARS OF BAD LUCK. A nice grouping of Freewheelin' outtakes and other assorted (up to 1969)
goodies. It is essential to own all of the early outtakes. Period.
LONG DISTANCE OPERATOR. A better than decent audience recording of the December/1965 Berkeley
THIN WILD MERCURY MUSIC. A bunch of slammin' outtakes from Bringing It All Back Home, Highway 61 &
Blonde on Blonde. A+.
HIGHWAY 61 REVISITED AGAIN. Outtakes and alternate mixes from the classic album. I particularly like
the reworked "Desolation Row." The first boot I bought.
GENUINE LIVE 1966 (8) That's eight big discs. 1966 was a good year. All material in fine quality. One of those boots that you gotta own. Trader put all of the artwork - including posters onto a CDr. Will include it as a 9th in trade.
PLAY F****** LOUD. 8 Tracks from the 1966 Europeen tour with the Hawks. The Final track only is on the
Live 1966 disc.
BOB FASS WBAI-FM (2) Interview & Call in Show (January/1966) with Bonus tracks from the February/1966
show in Pittsburgh. Dylan is matched for evasiveness and etherial answers by host Bass Fass in this
gruesome, entertaining and uninsightful inteview. No artwork.
TALES OF A MEXICAN PAINTER (2) April/1966 in Sydney, Australia. Quite enjoyable with a fantastic sound
quality. Some spaced out chat between songs from Bob.
MELBOURNE '66. Clear and precise single disc. Fine.
THE LIVE DYLAN: Dublin. May 5, 1966. Contains 6 acoustic songs from that show.
LEICESTER '66. Okay recording with the Band and Bobby pluging away.
GUITARS KISSING & THE CONTEMPORARY FIX (2). May 17, 1966. Finally commercially released as the
Live 1966 discs, but in case you wanted a copy of the most important bootleg in history.
HEAR THE DOCUMENT. (2) The same show as above with some wierd bonus stuff including the legendary
discussion between Bob & John Lennon in the back of a taxi cab driving through London - high on pot &
SINGS THE BODY ELECTRIC. (2) Includes 6 from the above along with a dozen from the Royal Albert Hall
show 10 days later and more. Great stuff all, includes a Dylan denial that he doesn't write drug stones.
Thanks for clearing that up for me, Bob.
BEFORE THE CRASH VOLUME 1.
BEFORE THE CRASH VOLUME 2. Has the May 26 & 27, 1966 Royal Albert Hall shows in fine kettle along
with a few extras.
THE GENUINE BASEMENT TAPES. VOLUMES 1-5. (5) It's a world unto itself.
THE DYLAN/CASH SESSIONS. A fun improvisational session with the man in black. Hear Zim yodel! Includes
Robert Allen's performance on a Cash TV special as well. Heck of a good time, studio stuff is from
ISLE OF WIGHT FESTIVAL '69. Bob's got that Nashville Skyline vocal thing going. Wierdly inconsistant
sound quality, almost track by track. Some are sound excellent while others lack.
