One record consisted of the tracks from the long-rumored Basement Tapes , while the other one was largely folk covers taped live in Nobody realized it at the time, but it was the first commercially available bootleg. In the four decades since, Dylan has been bootlegged more than any other artist.
In he decided to beat the bootleggers at their own game by releasing the three-CD set, The Bootleg Series , Vols. His refusal to release a single show from the Never Ending Tour, the complete unedited Basement Tapes or countless other legendary bootlegs has led to a very active underground Dylan recording community.
In less than two years he would hit the main stage at Carnegie Hall with an arsenal of original material. Columbia taped it for an official release and many tracks leaked out over the years, but in the complete soundboard appeared online with 10 unheard tunes. In the year and a half since his Carnegie Hall show, the year-old had developed incredible confidence onstage, regularly causing the crowd to break into laughter or listen to his words in absolute silence.
The Complete Basement Tapes Of the many versions of the Basement Tapes to trickle out over the years, the official release by Columbia in may be the worst.
A source tells me there are 10 CDs worth of material floating around, but so far only enough material to fill four CDs has popped up. If the Dylan camp has any sense, a definitive, undoctored Basement Tapes box set will be their next release. The first, Hard Rain , is an intense nine-track disc drawn from two May shows. The other, the Bootleg Series Vol. I was at this show. The version of Most of the Time stuck with me for weeks. I had a horrible recording of it, and when I found the above boot I was ecstatic.
The entire show can be found from the same source. We were there, walking down to the show from our downtown home. He has played it 36 times live.. Also, I'm in the minority but I hated the show. I'd seen Dylan about 60 times between '77 Last Waltz and '92 and was sure he was done. I took ''95 off, went to the '95 show at the Warfield in SF and was blown away anew and saw him or so times between then and now.
At the time my recollections of the show were: the sound was crap inside the event center, the two drummer thing was NOT working and Bob seemed disinterested. Listening to it now, it was a skosh better than I remember but not that much. I was at the show and thought it was great. The sound wasn't much to brag on from my seats, but it must have been good somewhere judging by the sound of the boot.
