Never mind.

Here's whatcha do: Take a line out of your headphone socket and record this lot onto a couple of old cassettes. Take them down to a dodgy pressing plant. Press them up on a couple of thousand poor quality vinyl albums. Print a picture of a pig smoking a cigar on the labels and put an nth generation litho repro picture of Bob looking pissed off from around '65-66 (there are lots to choose from) on the front of the blank cardboard covers. Sell them for £20 apiece on a market stall. Bob's your uncle. Bootlegger's fun restored.

Don't forget to include a couple of distantly recorded live tracks from a completely different period and at least one track by someone other than Bob.

Or you can enter a contest to win the 18 disc "Collector's Edition"

Video for an early take of 'Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues' utilising D.A. Pennebaker's film footage from Bob's 1965 (in b&w) & 1966 (colour) tours.

Cheers, John. As rock stars go, Dylan in '65-'66 is pretty much my favourite (until I see a nice old clip of Jimi Hendrix...)

That's only a day and a half (at least) of one's life - without breaks - for one listening.

Re-reading that previous sentence makes it actually sound like one.

Yes, I saw that. Grotesque. Some sort of travesty, I think. I mean, I'm probably romanticising (as usual) but Dylan in '66 did actually have some genuine social and musical significance. Maybe that's the rationale for doing this (other than making money, of course) but it seems so...wrong, somehow. How much is enough? Truly, I wonder what the superfast, wild mercury 25 year old Dylan would have made of it...

The rationale is that apart from the Manchester concert and the few other previously released tracks it would otherwise all be out of copyright next year. On the positive side it will only be a fraction of the cost of last years' 18 disc set and there is an alternative available with the separate issue of the "real" RAH date (the first night).

Any idea what the tune at around 6:40 is (it's being committed to tape)?

I think it's 'If I was a King' as filmed by D.A. Pennebaker (or Howard Alk) in a Glasgow hotel room - two versions were included in last year's big box

Thanks for that detailed link, John. Ever reliable, you are! I thought it had a touch of the Sweet Maries about it.
