    I love Dylan, he's possibly my favorite recording artist of all-time, but I'm still baffled by the enthusiasm for this release. "Isle of Wight" was a subpar show, the evidence of this has circulated for years. I've never been a fan of 'Self Portrait' - "Copper Kettle" is pretty much the only track I listen to with any interest - and unless we're in for a dramatic shock, the outtakes probably aren't anything to write home about, not if they're anything like what's circulated for years on real bootlegs. I don't think this period's a complete wash, if you take the best stuff from the 'Self Portrait,' 'New Morning' and Leon Russell sessions, you can make a solid, enjoyable LP from start-to-finish (nothing groundbreaking, but certainly one without a single bad track). But a two-disc set with a four-disc deluxe edition? I'm very, very skeptical about the quality.

      How do I downvote this!?

    I love the country period, Nashville Skyline and New Morning being my favourites but you can't help but like Self Portrait too and these outtakes sound fantastic based on the clips. I would have loved to have an alternate NS included - it would only take up a third of a disc - but this is still a great idea, down to the bizarre cover painting (hoping that starts a new trend). And I'm one of the first to question most of the IOW tracks on the official album - LARS is awful - but the clips I've seen of some other performances from the show - St Augustine in particular - are great and, uneven or not, it's a legendary concert and the more complete Dylan concerts available officially the better in my opinion.

    I wonder what happened to the out-takes previously released on the long-lost 1973 'Dylan' album? If those had been cleaned up and remixed, they would have added another interesting dimension to this release, and plugged what remains odd hole in the back catalogue.

    Although the album was of course originally a vindictive release to get back at Dylan for signing with Geffen, much of it is not without merit. Bit of a missed opportunity here!

  4. To the first Anony: if you don't like this taster, then you won't like the box as a whole I guess.


    If, like me, you think it ranks up there with the Basement Tapes material, you're in for a treat.

  5. I am so excited for this new bootleg.This period in his career just seems so genuine and pure. Nothing too fancy. I have high expectations, but I think they'll be met.
