"Mentioned by "a source" in interviews with "Rolling Stone" magazine:
- pre-Columbia coffeehouse tapes"

Which section was this in?

All the Bootleg Series have been great. I'll be happy with anything they release, even a Knocked Out Loaded installment.

The best thing about being a Dylan fan is learning his greatness literally has no limit. There are still 100s of CDs worth of quality music or music that will go down in history (Big Blue/Basement Tapes) they could release. And I for one would enjoy any of the above mentioned ideas.

After a "Blood and Thunder" set, I'd like his 1980s output to be given another chance. I also think that with day's technology there should be a Dylan-ran site with all (and regular updates of his) concerts for a reasonable fee or yearly dumps of concerts like the 1966 boxset (again for a reasonable fee).

Still amazes me that it was seven years between the initial 3 volume release, and the Manchester gig, then another four before we Rolling Thunder!

Imagine if they continued the trend of Vol. 1-3 where each disc is considered a volume, we'd be up to like Volume 50 or something by now.

announced: 2018 – The Bootleg Series Vol. 14: More Blood, More Tracks (Blood On The Tracks sessions)

Additional retrospective releases:
2005 - Live At The Gaslight 1962
2005 - Live At Carnegie Hall 1963

2015 - The 50th Anniversary Collection 1965 (download of 14 CDs worth of material)

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

Mentioned by "a source" (Jeff Rosen?) in interviews with "Rolling Stone" magazine:
- pre-Columbia coffeehouse tapes
- Rolling Thunder Review documentary
- Desire sessions
- Hard Rain and other TV specials
- 1978 tour
- Infidels sessions
- Sydney 1986 ("Hard To Handle" concerts)
- Oh Mercy sessions
- Supper Club CD/DVD*
- "some sort of examination of the Never-Ending Tour [1988-present]"

*I think that the Supper Club recordings 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.

Future project mentioned by Richard Alderson (facebook, May 2018):
- Gaslight Tapes ("My original recordings of Bob from the Gaslight in October 1962 will be released on Sony in the near future ... very, very few have heard them in their pristine sonic glory.")

---

Never-Ending Tour

My suggestion would be to do a box similar to the "1966 Live Recordings" set that provides an overview of the development of the sound and most of the line-up changes.

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

"The source" mentioned ("Rolling Stone", September 25, 2017) 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.

---

III. My additional, personal suggestions

Studio:
1984–1986 Empire Burlesque/Knocked Out Loaded/Hearts Of Fire sessions
1987 Down In The Groove sessions + reconstruction of Dylan's original version of the album (August 1987 master)
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)
1996/1997 Time Out Of Mind sessions (there are rumors that a covers album was recorded as a separate project before work began on TOOM, then there are the early sessions in Oxnard in 1996 and finally the sessions in Miami in early 1997 + some of the sessions were filmed by Daniel Lanois' brother)

also:
Don't Think Twice, It's All Right (NYC 2004, United We Swing outtake)
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]
My Own Love Song soundtrack (18 instrumentals, recorded at the Together Through Life sessions in 2008)
Saved (Toronto 1980) and Caribbean Wind (different version) [BS 13 "outtakes"]

In concert:
1974 A re-examination of the multitrack 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) with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers & The Queens Of Rhythm.

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)

IV. 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 Vault/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?)

V. 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 (said to be more like a loose run-through of some of the Street Legal songs at a rehearsal at Rundown Studios in Santa Monica)
1978 Spanish language versions of some Dylan originals

VI. 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)

Perhaps there is some place left for the "experiment ensam" performances from 2014 ?
(And may be there is more stuff, that was rehearsed and recorded then)
