Bob’s Boots review: The quality of this CD is well below average by today’s standards, but for a 1965 audience recording, it’s not bad at all. Get over the low fidelity buried sound, and you’ll be rewarded with a gem whose historical value cannot be overstated. It’s a great performance, to start with. Very unlike the raw power that was to follow in the coming year.. but just as good in it’s own rights. Consider it being the only recording of any substance of Dylan & The Hawks (The Band) of that year,… consider that it contains the only know version of the title track,… consider that some of the arrangements are like no other known recording, …. and this CD becomes a masterpiece.

  1. Thanks for this one!

    I was wondering if you have the Genuine Supper Club Soundboards from Scorpio listed in the must have section of bobsboots?

    Thanks again!

  5. Mat, sorry what I meant to make clear is that the ‘upgrades’ on my list are the scorpio releases – 4 cds, essential stuff, lovely balanced live ‘matrix’ mix and one of the few things Bob did in ’93 that is really worth checking out
