EDITORS’ NOTES

Rarities, discoveries, and in-concert landmarks fill the soundtrack of Martin Scorsese's documentary covering Bob Dylan's early years. Among the surprises is a 1959 home recording of a soft-voiced Dylan singing "When I Got Troubles." Another highlight is a version of Woody Guthrie's "This Land Is Your Land" that rings like a conversational tribute to both its author and its subject. Of course, Dylan's turn toward electric rock 'n' roll is well-represented here; a menacing alternate take of "Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat" demonstrates that rock and Chicago blues were the man's music as surely as any ancient ballad. The set climaxes with the 1966 "Judas!" take of "Like a Rolling Stone." The majesty and threat conjured by Dylan and The Hawks remain awe-inspiring.

Maggies Farm live

This will go down in history as when Dylan went electric and Pete Seeger went insane cause he "couldnt hear the words". Fuggetaboudit! This is just the best version of the song. Dylan and Butterfield Blues Band. (when I saw Dylan in Chicago in 1997 the only time he talked was when he said "Just wanna say hi to my old friend Sam Lay") Mike Bloomfield's guitar pre-dates Robbie Robertson's- it blisters it explodes.... This is the band Dylan wanted to tour with.. just an amazing performance.

Poppycock

Itunes really needs to stop this "album only" track buying. The beauty of getting to buy individual tracks is so fans aren't twisted into having to purchase the same song over and over. I have a majority of these tracks from the other bootleg series, the one track I really want from this album is desolation row, that of course is locked.
