Did he do a take with vocals of Dirt Road Blues?


I believe so... There’s singing in the clip from the film, right? I could be remembering wrongly.

Yes!
It's one of my personal holy grail type of recordings.
This should be released as a live album with an accompanying DVD of the performances.
According to director Larry Charles there were more than 20 songs recorded, bjorner.com only lists 11.

Dylan's voice is shot on the Masked and Anonymous stuff so I'm not keen to hear that. I would like to hear both 1996 Atlanta shows, especially as the engineer Mark Howard has now revealed Dylan gave him tapes of the shows to remix. Explains where the live takes for the Not Dark Yet single came from, and the sound. The three tracks released; Boots of Spanish Leather, Ballad of a Thin Man and Tombstone Blues all sound terrific, so I'd love to hear the rest. Interestingly, it seems Dylan handing these recordings over to Lanois and Howard was also the genesis for the TOOM recordings.

I had never thought of those performances as a possible BS release. I like it. Everything was professionally filmed and recorded, much like the supper club shows. I also heard there were close to a couple dozen songs. It would be nice to hear the songs without the dialogue, maybe the soundtrack is that way but I never did purchase it. I always wonder what more is left to mine from but there’s probably mountains full of material. Wasn’t there a rap album that was so bad it was decided the world would never be ready for which ended up at the bottom of some river?

My Back Pages from Atlanta is available, too. It was released on the 1997 Columbia promo CD "Live '96".

I wonder why The Bee Gees wouldn't let Bob into their studio when the first one tried
in Miami wasn't sounding quite right?
I hope it's because it was in-use and that's all, it's just the way it's written in the article,
''and they came back with NO!'' ...with no additional reasoning made me wonder if the
Bee Gees weren't keen on Bob using their studio.

I don't think he had a hoarse voice from shows particularly?
Or do you mean that post 1996 you're not keen on how his vocal's deepened?

To me it sounds top notch!

It has some really good close-up performance footage to it too.

Thanks! There's been a voice at the back of my head going, 'I'm sure there was a release of My Back Pages somewhere. Will have to try and track this down if possible. Promo CDs tend to be more difficult to locate.

The acoustic tracks are pretty good, but the electric ones feature Bob's voice at its most raw. I'm not a fan of the camera angles either. They just look weird!

I thought Larry Charles was quoted somewhere saying they recorded 20 or more songs for M&A? If so, I wonder what the other five or seven songs are...

1982–1986 Infidels/Empire Burlesque/Knocked Out Loaded/Hearts Of Fire sessions
1987 Down In The Groove/"Self Portrait II" sessions

1992 unreleased album (recorded in Chicago, produced by David Bromberg)
2008 My Own Love Song soundtrack (18 instrumentals)
2009 Vigilante Man (The People Speak outtake)

1963 The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan (original version)
1964 In Concert (cancelled album)
1974 Blood On The Tracks (original version)
1987 Down In The Groove (original version)

audio - in concert:
1976-05-16 Fort Worth
1976-05-23 Fort Collins
1978-07-15 Blackbushe (or one of the Paris shows or one of the late 1978 US shows)

1987 entire tour with the Grateful Dead (12 CDs) [Mixed to match the sound as heard in the stadiums. The circulating, unmixed soundboard tapes (most of which also run too fast) are a gross misrepresentation of the shows.]
1987 entire "Temples In Flames" tour (33 CDs)
1988–present – one release to document each phase of the so-called "Never-Ending Tour“

video:
1956 The Jokers (early Dylan band) live on a talent show on KEYD-TV – Channel 9 – Minneapolis-St. Paul (broadcast live, probably not recorded) [Info comes from Howard Rutman.]
1958 The Golden Chords (early Dylan band) live on WDSM-TV – Channel 6 – Superior/Duluth (broadcast live, probably not recorded) [Info comes from Monte Edwardson.]
1958 The Satin Tones (early Dylan band) live on WDSM-TV – Channel 6 – Superior/Duluth (broadcast live, probably not recorded) [Info about this comes from Shelton. It is unclear if this might actually be The Golden Chords TV appearance.]
1959 Elston Gunn & The Rock Boppers (another of Dylan’s Hibbing era bands) live on WTCN-TV – Channel 11 – Minneapolis-St. Paul (broadcast live, probably not recorded) [Info comes from John Bucklen.]
1965–present – official promo films
1962–present – TV appearances
1966 Eat The Document (+ alternative D.A. Pennebaker cut)
1974 (were any shows filmed professionally?)
1976 Hard Rain (Clearwater and Fort Collins versions)
1978 Renaldo And Clara (filmed in 1975) (they should include a documentary that outlines how this movie was based on 1945 French movie "The Children Of Paradise“)

1994-08-14 Saugerties, NY ("Woodstock '94")

Outstanding initial post, useful, helpful and downright handy.

I've just started collecting the vinyl editions of the Bootleg Series.
I may have waited too long to get a couple of them, here in the states.
If anyone has shopping tips you are invited to PM me.

No mention of the the Supper Club dates? I'd have some interest in that. Other areas of interest for me: the full BOTT because it's historic and going to happen anyway; early shows from the '74 tour because I'm interested in hearing vital, live versions of the Planet Waves material; Street Legal demos because so many of those songs just need room to breathe; the '77 stuff though I doubt it exists; stripped versions of EB/KOL material because New Danville Girl is worth it; something from the 86-87 tours, though my interest would not extend beyond a Rolling Thunder/Trouble No More-style two disc compilation of the best performances; any worthwhile JWH, UTTS, or L&T outtakes you got; some reasonable curation of the NET.

2012 - The 50th Anniversary Collection 1962 (4 CD-Rs)
2013 - The 50th Anniversary Collection 1963 (6 LPs)
2014 - The 50th Anniversary Collection 1964 (9 LPs)
2015 - The Basement Tape (original mono mix of 1968 publishing demo) (LP)
2015 - The 50th Anniversary Collection 1965 (download of 14 CDs worth of material)
2016 - The 1966 Live Recordings (+ separate releases of London May 26 and Sydney)

Films:
2005 - No Direction Home (covering 1941-1966)
2007 - The Other Side Of The Mirror - Live At The Newport Folk Festival 1963-1965
2007 - Don’t Look Back (covering UK Tour 1965)
2017 - Trouble No More (Live 1980 + bonus material)

II. Possible future projects

Planned for 2018 (according to "a source" – Jeff Rosen? – speaking to "Rolling Stone" magazine):
- Rolling Thunder Review documentary
- Blood On The Tracks sessions (hopefully including the unknown and uncirculating solo version of the album as previously mentioned by "the source")
- Desire sessions

Mentioned by "a source" in interviews with "Rolling Stone" magazine:
- pre-Columbia coffeehouse tapes
- Hard Rain and other TV specials
- 1978 tour
- Infidels sessions
- Sydney 1986 ("Hard To Handle" concerts)
- Oh Mercy sessions [note: This could include the very early "Emlah Court" demo sessions, e.g. the piano demo of God Knows.]
- Supper Club CD/DVD [note: I think that this should stay in the vaults. Excellent quality soundboard tapes of all four shows are already circulating and are nice to have but the preceding electric shows in the US in Sep./Oct. 1993 were much, much better concerts: Jones Beach first night, Holmdel, Hollywood Bowl – some of Dylan’s best shows.]
- "some sort of examination of the Never Ending Tour [1988-present]"*

---

*Here are some shows that I consider the best of the best from that era:

- Berkeley 1988
- Brussels 1989
- New York City October 10, 1989
- Paris January 30, 1990
- Dunkerque 1992
- Holmdel 1993
- Dresden 1994
- Dayton 1999
- Cologne 2000
- Berlin 2003
- Kalamazoo 2008
- Tampa 2010
- Beijing 2011
- Brussels 2013
- Mainz 2015
- Frankfurt 2017

---

III. My personal suggestions

Studio/demo tapes:
1982–1987 Infidels/Empire Burlesque/Knocked Out Loaded/Hearts Of Fire/Down In The Groove sessions
1982 Bob Dylan/Clyde King duets album ("Trouble No More" shows just how beautiful their voices sound together.)
1990 Under The Red Sky (rough mix version: live in the studio, no "superstar" overdubs, diff. vocals/lyrics, fantastic album, needs to be made available to the public)
1992 unreleased album (recorded in Chicago, produced by David Bromberg)
2008 My Own Love Song soundtrack (18 instrumentals)

also:
Shake Sugaree (TOOM outtake, Teatro, Oxnard 1996 or Criteria, Miami 1997) [planned for BS 8: TTS, not released]
God Knows (piano demo, presumably from 1989 Emlah Court sessions) [planned for BS 8: TTS, not released]
Don't Think Twice, It's All Right (NYC 2004, United We Swing outtake)

In concert:
1974 A re-examination of the board tapes from New York/Seattle/Oakland/Los Angeles, mixed to better match the sound as heard in the arenas.
1976-05-16 Fort Worth
1976-05-23 Fort Collins
1978-07-15 Blackbushe (or one of the Paris shows or one of the late 1978 US shows)
1984-07-07 London [or Brussels 06/07 (incl. Tangled Up In Blue – "forbidden zone"-version), Rome 06/21, Barcelona 06/28]
1987 entire tour with the Grateful Dead (12 CDs) [Mixed to match the sound as heard in the stadiums. The circulating, unmixed soundboard tapes (most of which also run too fast) are a gross misrepresentation of the shows.]
1987 entire "Temples In Flames" tour (33 CDs)

note:
"The source" mentioned that in some cases the audience tapes sound better than the board tapes captured by Dylan's crew (esp. "up until the mid-2000's"), so I think they should merge the board tapes with the best audience tapes, to create a fuller, more realistic soundscape. A fan-made example of this practice would be the Rothbury 2009 soundboard/audience "matrix" (LosslessBob LB-7971) or the fan-made 3-source-merge of Jimi Hendrix's last regular show at Fehmarn/Germany 1970, which merges the official release of the show (on Dagger Records) with two audience tapes for a much better overall sound.

Reconstruction of "lost" albums that were due for release, but got cancelled or were replaced by reworked versions (These could be released as vinyl-only limited editions for Record Store Day.):
1963 The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan (original version, mono mix, including the tracks that were deleted from the regular version)
1964 In Concert (cancelled album, mono mix)
1974 Blood On The Tracks (original version from December 1974 test pressing)
1987 Down In The Groove (original version from August 1987 master)

Juvenilia [hopefully held by the Tulsa Archive]:
1940s "Dictaphone" recordings of young Bobby Zimmerman singing songs like "Accentuate The Positive" (recorded by Dylan’s father) [probably lost]
1956 The Jokers acetate (early Dylan band) [Bought by the Dylan organization from the estate of Larry Kegan, now probably in the Tulsa archive.]
1950s rehearsal tapes of Dylan’s early bands recorded at the garage of the Zimmerman home at 2425 Seventh Avenue East, Hibbing, MN
1958 John Bucklen tape
1959 Dick Kangas tape
1960 Karen Wallace tape (This should be released officially. The original tape has very good sound and over twenty songs, incl. early Dylan original "One-Eyed Jacks".) [Still owned by Karen Wallace?]

Rumors:
1977 "I'm Cold" demos (10–12 songs were written in 1977, one song supposedly called "I'm Cold", probably not recorded)
1978 Street Legal piano demos
1978 Spanish language versions of some Dylan originals

Video:
1956 The Jokers (early Dylan band) live on a talent show on KEYD-TV – Channel 9 – Minneapolis-St. Paul (broadcast live, probably not recorded) [Info comes from Howard Rutman.]
1958 The Golden Chords (early Dylan band) live on WDSM-TV – Channel 6 – Superior/Duluth (broadcast live, probably not recorded) [Info comes from Monte Edwardson.]
1958 The Satin Tones (early Dylan band) live on WDSM-TV – Channel 6 – Superior/Duluth (broadcast live, probably not recorded) [Info about this comes from Shelton. It is unclear if this might actually be The Golden Chords TV appearance.]
1959 Elston Gunn & The Rock Boppers (another of Dylan’s Hibbing era bands) live on WTCN-TV – Channel 11 – Minneapolis-St. Paul (broadcast live, probably not recorded) [Info comes from John Bucklen.]
1965–present – official promo films
1962–present – TV/Internet broadcasts
1966 Eat The Document (+ alternative D.A. Pennebaker cut)
1974 (It seems no shows were filmed professionally.)
1976 Hard Rain (Clearwater and Fort Collins versions)
1978 Renaldo And Clara (filmed in 1975) [Note: They should include a documentary that outlines how this movie was based on 1945 French movie "The Children Of Paradise“.]
1994-08-14 Saugerties, NY ("Woodstock '94")
2002-07-18 concert for the film Masked & Anonymous, Stage 6, Ray-Art Studios, Canoga Park, CA
2009 Vigilante Man (The People Speak outtake)

Have you heard the Supper Club tapes?
Do you know what Dylan's voice sounds like at the Supper Club?


Well, obviously I've heard Ring Them Bells many times over. I think that's terrific. I've otherwise heard bits and pieces here and there. Inspired by your comment, I'm actually listening to the complete soundboards on YouTube right now. It's not his best era for vocals, no question there. He's in his phase where he sort of gently scuffs the notes instead of destroying them completely. Often a line will sound terrible at first, but then somehow the phrasing will make sense by the time he reaches the end. Actually listening to Tight Connection as I type, and it sounds great to me. Shows how great that song is beneath the syth pop discount bin production on EB. Overall, it just seems like a more interesting trove than the MTV official release turned out to be. Matter of taste, but not something to just dismiss.

That would certainly be amazing to hear all those on CD.


I'm still thinking it's too much like his live performances to be released while
he's still able to tour.

BD is always "in character" while before the public. Lets enjoy it all while we can.
