Just dropping the needle on mine. This is a fantastic set... It sounds like some of the songs have been touched up a little. I'm hearing some reverb that I haven't noticed before. The sound over all is great. It's a treat listening to this stuff on vinyl for the first time...

No complaints so far. The packaging is nice as well, but not up to par with a Bootleg Series release. Though that was to be expected. Still, theres session information for each song which is a nice touch. The liner notes are nothing special.

Considering doing a needle drop on this one, if anyone is interested.


PM me if you end up doing a needle drop. I found this link, but $75 + shipping is ridiculous. Sorry, I'm a fan, but not at that price.

For those who have it, and have listened to it, which version of "Mixed-Up Confusion" is on there? The single version (which would be the correct one) or the alternate version that debuted on Masterpieces?

I'm glad I bought this set. Most of the stuff comes from Biograph. I have a vinyl version of Biograph which is pretty worn out after 25 years of playing. So it's good to be able to have a "fresh" version of at least some of the songs.

Such a cool release!

is this an analog transfer? I was assuming it would be digitally sourced. Anyone know?
Correct my premise but presuming they didn't go to special lengths, it's a lot easier to just use digital sources? And would the rationale also be that generally the remastered stuff is a notable improvement over the originals?

First of all...great release...

...i've been looking for a nicely priced biograph for so long, but haven't been lucky enough to stumble upon one. but this has all the songs i've wanted plus more. how great is that george jackson?



but, I have a question...my copy is numbered 7893...I thought there were only 5000 copies?

any takes on this? misprint? it isn't the euro MOV copy.

I don't know exactly how many copies there are, but there are five digits in the number, so my guess is 10,000. Mine was in the 100s but had two zeroes before it.

Right, and that's what I noticed too. The only thing I could think of is if perhaps the UK copies on the Music on Vinyl label are counted in the same total.

Was just curious, saw a few others had the same situation with numbers past 5000.

P.S. - Just listened to "Caribbean Wind" and I was really unimpressed, not sure if this puts me in the minority, but just didn't catch my ear.

However, this live version of "Heart of Mine" is making me melt. This groove is almost as poppy and catchy as any of the great Smiths tracks, but only composed and emoted as Dylan can. Fantastic.

I have # 3482,or to be more correct 003482, so there could be 100.000 copies out there. Of course maybe the copies are numbered separately for every region or something like that.

It's notable that this release is a door opener for Bob's marketing team - a non-bootleg series collection with only about 2-4 songs that make Dylan's "hit" list, with the rest being exceptionally solid songs that are less well known to the casual fan or nonDylan fan. Getting them out to a masses who may not have heard them before. Hopefully this will be the first in a series of material capturing Dylan's phenomenal 'side tracked' songs. Will the Back of the Basement Tapes be next?

I've got all of this except for a track or two, but I find it fascinating. Perhaps it's the sequencing which is very nice. It is nice to have Things Have Changed on vinyl too. I think it's a well done selection of tracks.

It's good to have them on vinyl, definitely, but there are so many real rarities that could and should have been selected. What's real rare on this collection? George Jackson?

What about soundtrack songs, songs off tribute and charitiy albums and the like? I was thinking about the 2008 re-recorded Hard Rain recently and thought it was a pity they didn't go for those tracks. Maybe next time.

Well it's a Record Store day/Black Friday thing. A Collector's piece, essentially. Anything like what you are describing would probably be saved for a BL Series general release.

Those tracks will, at some point, come out on a Dylan comp. I will be happy to pick it up when it does.

With 6 digits you could go as high as 999,999.

It is still widely and easily available. I guess these rather well-known songs make it easier to sell than covers and obscure original songs. I'd still hope that if tracks that have been officially released but are rather hard to find are released as a collection, it won't be as part of the Bootleg Series.

Just playing side 6 for the first time. There seem to be a lot of pops on that side. :? The others weren't like that, they played straight through without problems. This is the European MOV version. Anyone else had problems with that?

I have the mov-release: no pops.

Mine is poppy in places, not unusual for MOV vinyl in my experience I'm afraid to say. I've got some super clean quiet vinyl from them, but some that pops all over the place. Add that to the fact that they usually work from digital masters and well... It is what it is I guess.

Thank you both. So no use complaining, I guess?

You probably should. I would if I wasn't such an uncomplaining sap!

Though you'd think it would make more of an impression the more people complained. :wink:
I'll try.

Picked up a copy at The Electric Fetus in Minneapolis yesterday. Priced at $40, got 15% off that with a coupon from Black Friday, pretty good deal I think. There were still 3 copies available if anyone in the area is still looking for one.

This may be rare some day but there seem to be a lot out there right now. Every record store near me has at least 10 of them.
