Excellent recordings of the best 1978 live shows.

Excellent recordings of the Gospel period live shows.

Chronicles Vol II and beyond.

I've yet to see VOJ live which represents something of a holy grail for me.

On a more populist note, I would do many bad things to hear the unrecorded album Dylan played for friends post-BOTT. Has to be some gold there...

you can put me on that list, too. i'd love to see the audience's reaction to this terrific song.

A boxed set of the Complete Never Ending Tour from 1988 through 2012..... If the point of the Holy Grail is that those who partake from it live forever there really isn't anything else from Dylan that could qualify. Seriously, could anything ever be better?

But I'll agree that officially released shows from the Gospel tours would be pretty dadgum fine as well.

A perfectly mixed soundboard from a 1979 Fall gospel show. Any will do. But the one from San Francisco on November 16 would be my top choice, I guess. Holy. And quest-worthy.

A very worthy show, indeed. I could live with that.

Bob apparently previewed the BOTT songs to anyone who would listen well before he stepped into the studio. My unattainable Holy Grail would be a collection of all those private performances, many of which were said to be quite different from the final product. Almost as unrealistic would be a full record of the Desire club gigs -- At the time, "Isis" was supposedly like "Visions of Johanna". "Abandoned Love" represents the one tape we do have. Imagine the other songs played in such a setting. Mind-blowing!

All Gospel shows I have not heard.
Any out takes from Gospel years and TOOM.
Any rare material with Bob and George Harrison and/or TW's.

The I'm Cold demoes are probably the most unique thing in the Dylan archives unreleased (presuming it exists). I'd also like to hear a good recording of the 1965 electric tour but I fear one doesn't exist.



I'd like to hear the I'm Cold songs....

Unknown and unreleased demo material would be great. There must be hours and hours of it that aren't catalogued on Bjorner or anywhere else.

Interesting if this person is still around.

For me it would be a CD--an OFFICIAL CD, released in the US and not as an import--pulling together all of the assorted tracks unavailable (or impossible to find) on CD: "Band of the Hand", the "Freewheelin'" promo tracks, "Angel Flying Too Close To The Ground", the 1975 version of "People Get Ready", the alternate take of "Lay Lady Lay", "Twas The Night Before Christmas", and so on and so forth.

Some sort of 'kissology' but with proper quality discs that arnt dodgy.


Ha! How much my opinion has changed on this...
Seven years later. My revised opinion would be whatever bob felt was his most honest and
best recorded work that caught the original intention and feel that he intended.
But it would be nice to hear the '65/ 66 kenwood demo they both did, if indeed it has survived
, but I doubt that . :)

I'd love to come across a live recording of "Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window?" or a studio recording of "Tell Me Momma"

Your 'Holy Grail' is a collection of already released material easily found on the internet?

I would like to hear the December 1973 rehearsals for the 1974 tour. Dylan and The Band got together in LA for a week and ran through all the songs, including a bunch that didn't make the set list. What's interesting about those tapes is that Dylan was more laid back, not yelling like he did during most of the 1974 shows.

Did you miss the part where I specifically stated it that it be "an official CD, released in the US and not as an import", and not a bunch of bootleg MP3 rips?

I thought 'Side Tracks' was going to be that collection, but it' woefully incomplete. Sony should compile ALL the non-album singles, b-sides, soundtrack songs, tribute album tracks, etc., into a series of comprehensive CDs, probably grouped by 'era'.

Won't happen of course.

And they should tie it up with a nice ribbon, send Jeff Rosen and a chimp to deliver it personally to every true fan, and include a coupon for a free dinner at Applebee's, drinks included. Otherwise they're off my Christmas card list!

I'm with Warren. If those existed they would almost certainly be my most listened to music ever.
