Seems a bit of waste to keep it in the vaults if this is indeed the case.

We've discussed E.C. in some depth but I was wondering if anyone remembers the performances by Joan Armatrading or Graham Parker? Graham Parker was the artist of the moment really, I remember he had an album out called Heat Treatment but I sadly missed his performance at the show. I think I was in the artists services are using my 'Dinner Voucher' at the time.
My memory is that I enjoyed all the acts, including the forgotten men of the day, prog band Lake (nothing to do with Greg Lake, btw) and reggae band Merger. But tbh, all I could really think about was "I'M GOING TO SEE DYLAN!!!!" :)

Yup, and I've got a copy, but I'm sure it's not 'Soundboard'.

An offical 40th Anniversary deluxe release would surely be welcomed!

I've been trying to post photos of the Blackbushe concert but the system keeps saying "It was not possible to determine the dimensions of the image." I keep forgetting it's impossible to post images here.

Oh come on! The world needs to hear this gig is soundboard quality...
It'd probably pass out if that was announces as the next Bootleg series. Such a great gig (though it's probably even better in criso quality). Is it in the infamous vaults? Or just lost?

I'm in full agreement Anr, if the Soundboard of Blackbushe really does exist then it should be rush released on the Bootleg Series in July to tie in with the 40th anniversary of the event, as someone else here already suggested. Columbia should have all those in the art department working overtime as from now. (But realistically I guess all there will be is a tie died version of Dylan and The Dead to discuss!)

Bootleg Series 14 - Blonde On Blackbushe

Bob's most kinky release yet.

Has anyone here actually bought this book? Not that pricey, but hard to decipher the quality of the work. Not sure if only was printed, or only one remaining...

I Was there with my friends, my first proper concert just before my 17th birthday!! .It was not a particuarly nice memory.
I remember getting there the night before started to que to get into the inner ring at about 4am !! absolute nightmare
people vomiting over each other in the que etc horrible. Then the 3 mile army march to Fleet Station afterwards nearly passing out through sheer exhaustion.
As for the Concert itself Dylan was a distant figure.As you can imagine the sound (despite the size of the sound system) wasnt brilliant.Bootleg recordings have confirmed my suspicions at the time that the Earls Court shows were superior particuarly Bobs vocal performance.All in all Blackbush was a Massive event but not a outstanding show in my opinion.
It would be great if the bootleg series focused on Earls Court or one of the European shows but not Blackbush

Let's hope it's not one of the tapes that was erased:

Dylan's 1978 world tour has also been much-maligned, largely because the Live At Budokan album captured a very early show before the band really gelled. "There was so much going on with that big band that Bob didn't always need to give off that much energy," says the source. "But they kept doing the show and it got better and better. Unfortunately, somebody erased most of the tapes. It's very frustrating. We had soundboards of all of them. We do have a couple now, though."
