I can't remember exactly in which book i read this, but it said that
special care was taken in the recording and performance of the
Live At "Massey Hall", Toronto, 19th April 1980 show, and that
culled from that the track-listing below was delivered to CBS
but failed to get a release;

1.Gotta Serve Somebody
2.Covenant Woman
3.When You Gonna Wake Up
4.Precious Angel
5.Slow Train Coming
6.Solid Rock
7.In The Garden
8.Ain't Gonna Go To Hell

The duration of the track listing is right for vinyl, at just under 48 minutes.
These tracks found their way onto that True Disciple bootleg that billed itself
as a ''Legendary Lost Album'' even though they added additional tracks that
most certainly wouldn't have been part of what Dylan handed in.
Anyway, if anyone reading this can clear it up for me i'd basically like to know
if this is myth or if the above tracks were delivered to CBS and rejected.

As far as I know they were considering the release of a live album from the Toronto shows, but I don't think that the circulating version was regarded as the final product. I think it's a more of a work tape/preliminary compilation. If the project had not been abandoned they would certainly have done additional editing/mixing etc.

Yep they'd have recorded the shows professionally through the mixing
desk into a multi track recorder, and then took them to the studio and
mixed and mastered them. None of those are circulating.
But i'm sure the book had said Dylan had delivered the actual rough
line recordings, so had CBS elected to release them they'd have had
to have them mixed and mastered in the studio before release, ie mixing
sound levels of instruments, re-recording any patches where the line
has dropped out for a few seconds, and possibly have Dylan re-record
some of his vocals. They had him do that on the all star 'My Back Pages',
at the 30th Anniversary bash apparently Dylan was unhappy with his verse and re-recorded it.
Bootlegs really are the naked recordings of the shows, the true live documents
of the shows, its a shame live albums are very rarely live.
But yep, just wanted to know if anyone actually knows for concrete whether
he did deliver this to CBS, i do recall it being said in a book, but i've
got 20 odd books on Dylan and i can't for the life of me recall which one
spoke about this specifically.

All I know is that on the back cover of the 19th apr 1980 bootleg it says this was an aborted live album. Track listing is the same as above.
If this is true, why choose 19th when 20th is much more intense, is one more for the list of Bob mysteries
