Bob Dylan Live 1962-1966: Rare Performances From The Copyright Collections (2018)

This page is part of a list of original releases by release date of international commercially-released regular stereo Dylan albums. They do not contain rarities or obscurities and are not eligible for the Searching For A Gem list. Nevertheless, their interest value or scarcity means they're worth listing here - as far as I know some are not included on any other Internet site. Promo releases of regular albums are now listed here and no longer In The former yearly Promo sections.

Catalogue numbers of US/European releases: 6CD Deluxe Edition: Columbia/Legacy 19075858962; Single CD: 19075858982; 2LP Set: 19075858971 - release date for all, 2 Nov 2018.

Thanks to Éamonn Ó Catháin for information that all releases In The UK are limited: 6CD set - 6,500; single CD - 15,000; 2LP set - 4,000.

Thanks to Sonny Boy McFitzson for information about the Japanese releases. The Japanese booklet will have Japanese liner notes (maybe analysis of sessions) plus the officially registered lyrics and translations of English liner notes and lyrics. The discs will be Blu-Spec CD 2 format:
1CD (SICP31210 / ¥2,400+tax=¥2,592), 2 Nov 2018
6CD (SICP31211-6 / ¥20,000+tax=¥21,600), 7 Nov 2018 (delayed because of shipping of books from the USA).

Pre-orders of the 6CD set by 12 Oct 2018 will include a bonus tin badge set. Each badge is 38mm×38mm sized. There will not be a Japanese vinyl release, but copies may be imported.

The book included with the Deluxe Edition has four missing pages from Bob's 1974 ring-bound notebook because of a printing error. The missing pages can be found here:

As can be seen on left, some copies have badly cut pages!

Thanks also to Harald Sigvartsen and Per Jakobsen for comments on the tracks and the books.

Harald Sigvartsen says: "And now to the pictures In The “Stories from the press” book. – As you may have suspected, I do really closely read text and inspect the pictures of these releases. In the “Stories…” book I found some pictures worth mentioning. The pictures on pages 78 and 79 of this book must be from the photo sessions from which the covers of the above-mentioned Australian and Swedish best-of releases have their pictures. There are also further pictures In The CD-book which clearly must be from the same photo sessions, they are throughout this book, - on the pages 22, 27, 30, 33, 40 and also (in black/white) on page 34. I hope this is also worth pointing out. (It should be mentioned here that the single disc booklet have some of these pictures. On the pages 10, 16, 20, and, the b/w picture, on page 25.) There is a picture of a “Rolling Stone” magazine on page 33 of the “Stories..” book that is repeated on page 35. On page 35 this picture is cropped, but it is actually the very same picture. Should this be mentioned on your site?"

Harald Sigvartsen adds: Idiot Wind is perhaps Dylan’s most cathartic song outside the songs released In The 1960s (such as Like A Rolling Stone and Positively 4th Street), and it’s a song that has been released in various versions also officially. My personal favorite is the live version from the Hard Rain album. Idiot Wind (Take 4, Remake) is track 9 on the single disc version and also track 9 (by coincidence, I think) on CD4 of the box set. The booklet for the Standard Edition and the book In The Deluxe Edition says that this is the raw version without organ overdub. This is almost correct. There is a little misinformation here. The version used on the Deluxe Edition has 24 seconds of “studio chatter”  at the beginning which is not mentioned In The book (making the song’s length 9.14 in total). The version on the single disc is 8.50, and thus without this “studio chatter”. This means that the version on the single disc edition of The Bootleg Series Vol. 14 is exclusive to this release. Maybe worth pointing out?

The next issue is also regarding Idiot Wind. I have not heard the original test pressing of Blood On The Tracks, so I can’t say I know by my own ears what’s what on the matter here. I have checked closely the labels for the test pressing, and they don’t give anything away in terms of useful information. I have, though, listened closely to the versions on the Deluxe Edition, and tried comparing them with the released version on The Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3. I think that track 10 on CD4 must be the version from the test pressing, which also the book says, but, incorrectly, claims that this version was released on The Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3 in 1991. The version released on The Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3 in 1991 is actually the version recorded on September 16, 1974 (track 11 on CD2), Idiot Wind (Take 6) to be specific]. There is no doubt that the text In The book of the Deluxe Edition is wrong claiming that the test pressing version were released on The Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3. The version from the test pressing has not been officially released before the release of The Bootleg Series Vol. 14 this November. I hope this resolves the issues that emerged around which versions of Idiot Wind are on what release – and something that should be pointed out on your site?"

So, the original 1974 version of Blood On The Tracks can almost be assembled as follows:

Side 1: Tangled Up In Blue (CD5, track 2, 6:51, recorded 19 Sep 1974); Simple Twist of Fate (CD5, track 5, 4:22, recorded 19 Sep 1974); You're A Big Girl Now (CD3, track 3, 4:23, recorded 17 Sep 1974); Idiot Wind (CD5, track 10, 8:52, recorded 19 Sep 1974); You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go (CD4, track 2, 3:25, recorded 17 Sep 1974 - the released version was edited to 2:58)*

Side 2: Meet Me In The Morning (CD2, track 5, 5:43, recorded 16 Sep 1974 - the released version was edited to 4:19)*; Lily, Rosemary And The Jack Of Hearts (CD1, track 11, 9:49, recorded 16 Sep 1974); If You See Her, Say Hello (CD4, track 13, 3:26, recorded 19 Sep 1974); Shelter From The Storm (CD3, track 15, 5:02, recorded 17 Sep 1974); Buckets Of Rain (CD4, track 12, 3:23, recorded 19 Sep 1974)

All recorded A&R Studios, New York, 16-19 Sep 1974.

The revised version of Blood On The Tracks released in early 1975 can almost be assembled as follows:

Side 1: Tangled Up In Blue (CD6, track 6, 5:47, recorded Sound 80 Studio, Minneapolis, MN, 30 Dec 1974); Simple Twist of Fate (CD5, track 5, 4:22, recorded A&R Studios, New York, 19 Sep 1974); You're A Big Girl Now (CD6, track 5, 4:38, recorded Sound 80 Studio, Minneapolis, MN, 27 Dec 1974); Idiot Wind (CD6, track 4, 7:53, recorded Sound 80 Studio, Minneapolis, MN, 27 Dec 1974); You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go (CD4, track 2, 3:25, recorded 17 Sep 1974 - the released version was edited to 2:58)*

Side 2: Meet Me In The Morning (CD2, track 5, 5:43, recorded A&R Studios, New York, 16 Sep 1974 - the released version was edited to 4:19)*; Lily, Rosemary And The Jack Of Hearts (CD6, track 7, 8:59, recorded Sound 80 Studio, Minneapolis, MN, 30 Dec 1974); If You See Her, Say Hello (CD6, track 8, 4:44, recorded Sound 80 Studio, Minneapolis, MN, 30 Dec 1974); Shelter From The Storm (CD3, track 15, 5:02, recorded A&R Studios, New York, 17 Sep 1974); Buckets Of Rain (CD4, track 12, 3:23, recorded A&R Studios, New York, 19 Sep 1974)

DISC 2

A & R Studios
New York
September 16, 1974

1. Simple Twist Of Fate (Take 1A) – with band (4:58)
2. Simple Twist Of Fate (Take 2A) – with band (1:24)
3. Simple Twist Of Fate (Take 3A) – with band (4:22)
4. Call Letter Blues (Take 1) – with band (4:42)
5. Meet Me In The Morning (Take 1) – with band, full version (5:43), the version included on Blood on the Tracks test pressing and previously released on Blood on the Tracks was edited (4:19)
Harald Sigvartsen says: "The book correctly says that this is the full version of the song, but doesn’t say why the edited version, which were on both the test pressing and the final version of Blood On The Tracks in 1975, is omitted from the Deluxe Edition. This means that the test pressing version is still only released on Blood On The Tracks. This fact should be pointed out, as the impression was that everything from the 1974 sessions were to be released on the Deluxe Edition."

6. Call Letter Blues (Take 2) – with band (4:29), previously released on The Bootleg Series, Vols. 1-3: Rare and Unreleased, 1961-1991
7. Idiot Wind (Take 1) – with bass (3:48)
8. Idiot Wind (Take 1, Remake) – with bass (5:29)
9. Idiot Wind (Take 3 with insert) – with bass (7:11) (take 2 is missing!)
10. Idiot Wind (Take 5) – with bass (0:30) (take 4 is missing!)
11. Idiot Wind (Take 6) – with bass (8:52), this is not the take included on Blood on the Tracks test pressing (R-0118, see 1974), overdubbed on 8 Oct 1974, but instead the version on The Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3: Rare and Unreleased, 1961-1991, CD2 track 20!

12. You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go (Rehearsal and Take 1) – with band (1:25)
13. You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go (Take 2) – with band (0:46)

DISC 3

A & R Studios
New York
September 16, 1974

1. Tangled Up In Blue (Take 1) – with bass (7:19)

A & R Studios
New York
September 17, 1974

2. You’re A Big Girl Now (Take 1, Remake) – with bass and organ (4:55)
3. You’re A Big Girl Now (Take 2, Remake) – with bass, organ, and steel guitar (4:23), included on Blood on the Tracks test pressing (R-0117, see 1974) and previously released in a remixed form on Biograph
4. Tangled Up In Blue (Rehearsal) – with bass and organ (0:59)
5. Tangled Up In Blue (Take 2, Remake) – with bass and organ (6:38)
6. Spanish Is The Loving Tongue (Take 1) – with bass and piano (4:56)
7. Call Letter Blues (Rehearsal) – with bass and piano (2:03)
8. You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go (Take 1, Remake) – with bass and piano (3:11)
9. Shelter From The Storm (Take 1) – with bass and piano (6:03), previously released on the Jerry Maguire original soundtrack, 1996 (R-0250)
Apparently R-0250 was mixed to make the piano accompaniment barely audible - it is much more prominent on the 2018 released version of the same take.

10. Buckets Of Rain (Take 1) – with bass (2:57)
11. Tangled Up In Blue (Take 3, Remake) – with bass (6:44), previously released on The Bootleg Series, Vols. 1-3: Rare and Unreleased, 1961-1991
Both Harald Sigvartsen and Per Jakobsen agree that CD3 track 11 (take 3 remake) is the version on The Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3 CD2 track 18! This is at odds with the liner notes (see above).

12. Buckets Of Rain (Take 2) – with bass (3:20)
13. Shelter From The Storm (Take 2) – with bass (4:39), also released on the single CD version
14. Shelter From The Storm (Take 3) – with bass (2:23)
15. Shelter From The Storm (Take 4) – with bass (5:02) – previously released on Blood on the Tracks

Bob Dylan: vocals, guitar, harmonica
Tony Brown: bass
Paul Griffin: keyboards (2-9)
Buddy Cage: steel guitar (3)

DISC 4

A & R Studios
New York
September 17, 1974

1. You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go (Take 1, Remake 2) – with bass (3:43), also released on the single CD version
2. You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go (Take 2, Remake 2) – with bass (3:25), previously released on Blood on the Tracks but in edited form (2:58)!
Harald Sigvartsen says: "You're Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go (Take 1, Remake 2) is said to be the one used on the final album, and thus the test pressing. This is almost correct. It is this take that were used on both test pressing and final album, but the version on the Deluxe Edition is actually an unfaded, 30 seconds longer, version of the song (probably the original version) . This means that also this song isn’t represented with its test pressing/original album version in the box set. [I checked with the labels of the test pressing and the original album from 1975.] I think that this is worth mentioning on your site, as this fact must have slipped the producers of the new Bootleg Series release."

12. Buckets Of Rain (Take 4, Remake 2) – with bass (3:23), previously released on Blood on the Tracks
13. If You See Her, Say Hello (Take 1, Remake) – with bass (3:26), previously included on Blood on the Tracks test pressing (R-0119, see
1974)
14. Up To Me (Take 1, Remake 2) – with bass (0:57)
15. Up To Me (Take 2, Remake 2) – with bass (6:48)

17. Buckets Of Rain (Rehearsal) – with bass (0:53)
18. Meet Me In The Morning (Take 1, Remake) – with bass (4:57), previously released on the Duquesne Whistle 7” single, 2012 (R-0935), also released on the single CD version but in edited form (4:17) so R-0935 remains a rarity!
19. Meet Me In The Morning (Take 2, Remake) – with bass (4:15)

DISC 5

A & R Studios
New York
September 19, 1974

1. Tangled Up In Blue (Rehearsal and Take 1, Remake 2) – with bass (3:08) (see comment for Take 3)
2. Tangled Up In Blue (Take 2, Remake 2) – with bass (1:32)
3. Tangled Up In Blue (Take 3, Remake 2) – with bass (6:51), included on Blood on the Tracks test pressing (R-0120, see 1974) but not the take previously released on The Bootleg Series, Vols. 1-3: Rare and Unreleased, 1961-1991
The previous statement that both these takes were the same is incorrect. My earlier information was that Take 1 from 16 Sep 1974 was released on The Bootleg Series, Vols. 1-3, while the take released on the Blood on the Tracks test pressing was Take 1 from 19 Sep 1974 (CD5, track 1 above). We now know that CD5 track 3 (Take 3, Remake 2), and the version on the test pressing are the same take!

4. Simple Twist Of Fate (Take 2, Remake) – with bass (4:51)
5. Simple Twist Of Fate (Take 3, Remake) – with bass (4:22), previously released on Blood on the Tracks
6. Up To Me (Rehearsal and Take 1, Remake 3) – with bass (2:25)
7. Up To Me (Take 2, Remake 3) – with bass (6:24), previously released on Biograph
Thanks to Fred Muller for pointing out that the recording date on Biograph and bobdylan.com is 25 Sep 1974. This cannot possibly be correct. The only New York recording session after 19 Sep 1974 documented by Michael Krogsgaard is an overdub session for Idiot Wind on 8 Oct 1974 by Paul Griffin on organ. However, this mistake may have occurred because the first test pressing is dated "9/25/74" (see 1974). Michael Krogsgaard's 1988 book "Master of the Tracks" gives the recording date of the released take of Up To Me as 25 Sep 1974, but in his article "Bob Dylan: The Recording Sessions (Part 3)" in "The Telegraph" 55, Summer 1996, he revised the date to 19 Sep 1974.
8. Idiot Wind (Rehearsal and Takes 1-3, Remake) – with bass (4:53) (see comment for Take 4)
9. Idiot Wind (Take 4, Remake) – with bass (8:51), also released on the single CD version
10. Idiot Wind (Take 4, Remake) – with organ overdub (8:52), included on Blood on the Tracks test pressing (the real R-0118, see 1974) but not the take previously released on The Bootleg Series, Vols. 1-3: Rare and Unreleased, 1961-1991
The earlier statement that both these takes were the same is incorrect. My previous information was that Take 4 from 19 Sep 1974 was released on The Bootleg Series, Vols. 1-3, while the take released on the Blood on the Tracks test pressing was actually Take 6 from 16 Sep 1974, overdubbed on 8 Oct 1974. This is wrong - CD5, track 10 is the track from the test pressing! We now know that CD5 track 10 (take 4, remake) with organ overdub, and the version on the test pressing are the same take.

11. You’re A Big Girl Now (Take 1, Remake 2) – with bass (3:06)
12. Meet Me In The Morning (Take 1, Remake 2) – with bass (3:52)
13. Meet Me In The Morning (Takes 2-3, Remake 2) – with bass (1:43)

There is also a small MP3 download insert which is plain white on the rear - the download code has been obscured on the scan. "14552" is printed in the top right hand corner, missing from the European version below. The records of Gerd Rundel's copy have matrix numbers: Side 1 - 18-0265 19075858971 - A (handwritten), MPO 18 40628 (stamped), Side 2 - 18-0265 19075858971 - B (handwritten), MPO 18 40536 (stamped), Side 3 - 18-0265 19075858971 - C (handwritten), MPO 18 41510 (stamped), Side 4 - 18-0265 19075858971 - D (handwritten), MPO 18 40647 (stamped). There is also handwritten "RKS" and stamped "STERLING" in the vinyl on each side. This means that the records were mastered by recording engineer Ryan K Smith of Sterling Sound, Edgewater, NJ.

Columbia/Legacy 19075858971 (USA for Japan) - front scan found by Sonny Boy McFitzson
This copy of the US 2LP set was bought in Japan, scans found online by Sonny Boy McFitzson. Thanks to Gerd Rundel for pointing out that the rear sleeve of the copy sold in Japan is slightly different from that of the US copy, with no Columbia and Legacy logos on the left, and no barcode on the right. All other details appear the same.

Columbia/Legacy/Sony Music 19075858971 (Europe) - test pressing front sleeves scan by Gerd Rundel (Records 1 and 2 are the same)
Thanks to Gerd Rundel for finding a test pressing of the European 2LP set. These audiophile quality 187gm discs were pressed in France by MPO and come in the original lined MPO Test Pressing sleeves. "MPO" is "Moularges et Plastiques de l'Ouest [Western Mouldings & Plastics]". The front has French and Spanish text while the rear has English and German text. The front is identical on both sleeves while the rear sleeves have handwriting in black marker pen. The sleeves are dated "8/5/18" (either 8 May 2018 or 5 Aug 2018, both dates well before the album was actually released).  The order of the tracks is the same as the commercial release. The matrix numbers are: Side 1 - 18-0265 19075858971 - A (handwritten), MPO 18 35468 (stamped), Side 2 - 18-0265 19075858971 - B (handwritten), MPO 18 35463 (stamped), Side 3 - 18-0265 19075858971 - C (handwritten), MPO 18 35464 (stamped), Side 4 - 18-0265 19075858971 - D (handwritten), MPO 18 36933 (stamped). There is also handwritten "RKS" and stamped "STERLING" in the vinyl on each side, as the US discs.

The European 2LP set again comes in a wide sleeve holding both LPs with a front sticker. The inner sleeves are the same as those of the US release. The four page 12" insert has different copyright text on bottom right of the rear (see detail scan below), but otherwise it's the same as that of the US release. This European copy comes also with the MP3 download insert (again plain white on the rear) but the small number "14552" at front top right is missing.

The box and the two books for Sony Music SICP 31211-6 were imported from the USA. These scans by "Merurido" were found on www.discogs.com by Sonny Boy McFitzson. I assume the rear and spine scans are actually of a wrap-around obi. Sonny Boy McFitzson has the following comments on the Japanese language booklet:

pg2: It says below Disc5 tracklisting
*Please note Disc5 tracks 3&10 are described as Previously Released in the English liner notes but are actually Previously Unreleased.
However there is no further information in the Japanese exclusive text specifying the previously released takes.
pg3-7: Intro by Ben Rollins/ “Have you ever even listened to these?” by Jeff Slate
pg8-19: Track by Track descriptions
pg20: Summarized Bob Dylan Chronicles 1974 by Heckel Sugano
pg21: STORIES IN THE PRESS intro by Ben Rollins
pg22 (bottom): The whole English texts translated by Heckel Hugano
pg23-27: Essay by Kenta Hagiwara, Sep 2018 (where he points out the misinformation on Tangled Up In Blue and Idiot Wind.)
pg28-46: Officially registered lyrics, no variations printed.
The 1974 version of Spanish Is The Loving Tongue is a full lyrics take minus a verse. The "Moonlight in the patio" verse isn't sung but is on The Basement Tapes version.
pg47-48: Bobtalks transcribed and translated by Yuriko Banno.

Thanks to Bill Hester, Gerd Rundel and Sonny Boy McFitzson for information and scans.
