R-0273 Dignity - original Oh Mercy out-take from the Touched By An Angel soundtrack album, also see 1998
Now no longer a rarity since it is included in The Essential Bob Dylan (2000) on the bobdylan.com albums page.

R-0552 Waitin' For You - from the Divine Secrets Of The Ya-Ya Sisterhood soundtrack album, see 2002

Jean-Pol Hiernaux has what must be a test pressing dated "10/18/02" (18 Oct 2002). This was from before the site was open to the public. It has only a card containing information about the Custom Mix CD facility, no jewel case inserts. The CD contains R-0271, R-0273 and R-0552 as above.

Custom Mix CD - front scan by Jean-Pol Hiernaux (design 1)
More rarities appeared, including two exclusive tracks! With God On Our Side (live) was confirmed to be the MTV Unplugged version.

R-0268 Cocaine Blues (Traditional) - live, El Rey Theater, Los Angeles, 16 Dec 1997 (A), from the European Columbia Love Sick singles, also on a bonus disc included with the Australian tour limited edition of Time Out Of Mind, for both see 1998.

The Sony Custom Mix web-site misdated this performance as from 20 Dec 1997, the 1998 releases date it correctly - see Cold Irons Bound below for a second misdating. Bob did indeed perform Cocaine Blues on 20 Dec 1997 but that performance has never been officially released.

R-0267 Cold Irons Bound - live, El Rey Theater, Los Angeles, 16 Dec 1997 (A) - same as BDC7 (see above), from the European Columbia Love Sick singles, also on a bonus disc included with the 1998 Australian tour limited edition of Time Out Of Mind (see 1998), and several 1999 promo releases, see 1999. Now also available on the 2001 Japanese live compilation Bob Dylan Live 1961-2000: Thirty Nine Years Of Great Concert Performances, see 2001.

The Sony Custom Mix web-site repeated the mistake on several of the releases that the performance is from 20 Dec 1997. Bob did indeed perform Cold Irons Bound on 20 Dec 1997 but that performance has never been officially released. The Sony Custom Mix web-site also introduced a new mistake by misdating Cocaine Blues, see above.

R-0205 Dead Man, Dead Man - live, Saenger Theater, New Orleans, LA, 10 Nov 1981, B-side of Everything Is Broken Columbia single (see 1989). Later released on the 1993 Japanese promo CD Mr. D's Collection # 3 (see 1993), and now also available on the 2001 Japanese live compilation Bob Dylan Live 1961-2000: Thirty Nine Years Of Great Concert Performances (see 2001).

R-0084 George Jackson - "Big Band" version, A-side of 1971 Columbia single (see 1971), lyrics on bobdylan.com here
Also available on the Nov 1972 Japanese boxed set Bob Dylan: Gift Pack '73 (see 1972), the 1974 Japanese limited release LP Mr D's Collection #1 (see 1974) and subsequent EP Mr D's Collection #2 (see 1976), the 1978 Columbia Australia compilation Masterpieces (see 1978), and the 1993 Japanese limited release CD Mr D's Collection #3 (see 1993). This version was released on commercial CD in 1987 (the CD release of Masterpieces), although that track is distorted. The performance here is in good quality, as on Mr D's Collection #3.

R-0085 George Jackson - Acoustic version, B-side of 1971 Columbia single (see 1971), also available on the 1974 Japanese limited release LP Mr D's Collection #1 (see 1974), and the 1993 Japanese limited release CD Mr D's Collection #3 (see 1993). This version was not released on commercial CD until it was included on a bonus disc with the Dutch release of The Essential Bob Dylan, 2003.

The Sony Custom Mix web-site said George Jackson was the solo acoustic version (R-0085, as confirmed by the online excerpt), but it was actually the "big band" version (R-0084) until the end of April 2003, when it was replaced by the correct track. However, I heard at the end of May 2003 that the latest Custom CDs were again including R-0084. This was very confusing for customers! Amy Dickerson tells me she ordered a CD containing the acoustic version but received the "big band" version - she complained and was sent a replacement with the acoustic version.

R-0435 Highlands - live, Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium, Santa Cruz, CA, 16 Mar 2000 (A), from the bonus CD released with the limited edition of The Best Of Bob Dylan Vol. 2, 2000.

R-0606 I Threw It All Away - this is a new out-take, previously officially unreleased, although not new to collectors. Wrongly described as a 1969 studio outtake from the Nashville Skyline sessions, it was recorded with George Harrison during the New Morning sessions at Columbia Studios, New York, 1 May 1970. Seven other tracks from this session (R-0419 - R-0425) turned up on the market in 1986 on Columbia acetates, now known as The Gelston Acetates (see 1986), and If Not For You released on The Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3 in 1991 is also from this session.

R-0279 Million Miles - live, Broome County Arena, Binghamton, NY, 19 Feb 1999 (A), from the Columbia promo CD Million Miles: Live Recordings 1997-1999, see 1999.

R-0202 Pretty Boy Floyd (Woody Guthrie) - from the 1988 Columbia Woody Guthrie/Lead Belly tribute album Folkways: A Vision Shared (see 1988), also on the 1993 Japanese promo CD Mr. D's Collection # 3 (see 1993). For the 1989 video and DVD release, see VHS & DVD 1980s.

R-0130 Rita May - Desire out-take, recorded Jul 1975, B-side of 1976 single Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again from the Hard Rain album (also released in France as the A-side), see 1976, lyrics on bobdylan.com here. Some say this sounds like an alternate version, but it's possible it's been remastered.

R-0443 Make You Feel My Love - live, Pauley Pavilion, UCLA, Los Angeles, CA, 21 May 1998 (A), from the European Things Have Changed CD single, May 2000 (see 2000), same as BDC26 from bobdylan.com, Jun 1998 (see above).

R-0552 Waitin' For You - from the soundtrack of the 2002 film The Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood, see 2002.

This is described as a new out-take, previously unreleased, but it is in fact exactly the same take as on the soundtrack album!


Custom Mix CD sample, scan by Pachi Becerril (dated "04/22/03")
My copy of the Custom Mix CD is dated "04/10/03" (10 Apr 2003). Jean-Pol Hiernaux's copies are dated "02/17/03" (17 Feb 2003) and "05/01/03" (1 May 2003) respectively. Gerd Rundel's copy is dated "04/16/03" (16 Apr 2003). Pachi Becerril's copy is dated "4/22/03" (22 Apr 2003).

Apr 2003: (Apple iTunes Online Music Store )

These tracks were available as an "Exclusive" 4-track download single from the US iTunes store only from 24 Apr 2003.

R-0655 Diamond Joe (Traditional) - edited version of the performance from the then unreleased soundtrack of the movie Masked And Anonymous (R-0612, see 2003, VHS & DVD 2000s Part 2 and above)
Although it's the same take and mix, this version is 10 seconds shorter than the
Masked And Anonymous version (2:22 instead of 2:32) because the start of the intro is missing. Thanks to Paul S. Levine and Jean-Pol Hiernaux for information. Note this is a different song from the one on Good As I Been To You, see International Albums (Regular), thanks to Gil Walker for pointing this out. Thanks to Derek Barker for information in "Isis 180" that although the song is associated with fiddler Benjamin F. "Tex" Logan and has been copyrighted by him, it is in fact traditional.

R-0613 Everything Is Broken - alternate take with different lyrics from the version on Oh Mercy (not an alternate mix as described)
Now officially released on CD1 of 
The Bootleg Series Vol. 8 - Tell Tale Signs: Rare And Unreleased 1989-2006, 2008

Spanish Harlem Incident, live from New York Philharmonic Hall, 31 Oct 1964, released on The Bootleg Series Vol. 6

R-0614 Hero Blues - live from New York Town Hall, 12 Apr 1963, not the 1963 studio version which surfaced in 1980 as a Columbia acetate, see 1980
This has now been released on the Columbia/Legacy/Sony Music Europe 6LP limited edition 50th Anniversary Collection 1963, Dec 2013. As this is a limited release, R-0614 is still a rarity. Thanks to Justin Brooks for information this occurrence has an intro missing from the 50th Anniversary Collection 1963 version, but I
am leaving both occurrences as R--0614.


May 2003: (Custom Mix CD site )

R-0606 was removed and replaced by:

R-0271 Roving Gambler (Traditional) - live, El Rey Theater, Los Angeles, 17 Dec 1997 (A), from the European Columbia Love Sick singles, also on a bonus disc included with the Australian tour limited edition of Time Out Of Mind, both 1998


Jul 2003: (Apple iTunes Online Music Store )

R-0617 Cold Irons Bound - live from "Jack Fate and his band", recorded Stage 6, Ray-Art Studios, Canoga Park, CA, 18 Jul 2002, from the 2003 Sony Music Soundtrax Masked And Anonymous soundtrack album and the DVD release, see 2003 and VHS & DVD 2000s Part 2

Thanks to Paul S. Levine for information about this item.


Dec 2003: (Custom Mix CD site )

The Sony Custom Mix CD facility has now been discontinued L. Newbury Comics in the USA have copies of a twelve track all rarity Custom Mix CD for sale for $14.95, see here Thanks to Jean-Pol Hiernaux for information that this CD-R is offered by Newbury Comics as a permanent item with the same fixed twelve tracks and artwork.

Note that the timing of George Jackson (5:53) is a mistake. It's 3:38 and is the acoustic version (R-0085) and not the "Big Band" version (R-0084).

Thanks to David Plentus for scans.

R-0683 Went To See The Gypsy - unreleased demo version of track from New Morning, with Bob on piano (this was available from the US store only on 12 Oct 2004)
Now no longer a rarity since it appears as track 15 on CD2 of 2013's The Bootleg Series, Vol. 10 - Another Self Portrait (1969-1971
).

Thanks to Jean-Pol Hiernaux for information about this item. Thanks to Evan Marshall for pointing out the 2013 release.

Dec 2004: ("Uncut" magazine web-site )

The UK "Uncut" magazine's Jan 2005 issue had as its feature article the story of the recording of Blood On The Tracks in Sep and Dec 1974 "One of the most truthful dissections of love gone wrong in rock history.' Exactly 30 years after its release in January 1975, we present the full story of Bob Dylan's Blood On The Tracks." You can listen to the five replaced tracks from Blood On The Tracks at "Uncut"'s web-site here. Thanks to Fred Muller for spotting this.

Picture from PBS web-site
This page has additional footage from the Martin Scorsese documentary No Direction Home (see VHS & DVD 2000s Part 3), as part of the publicity for the film.

R-0626 Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat - live with The Hawks, Dublin, Ireland, 5 May 1966 (not 2 May 1966 as listed), excerpt (1:34), now released in full on the Columbia/Legacy USA/Europe 36CD set The 1966 Live Recordings, Nov 2016

R-0732 Mr. Tambourine Man - live, Belfast, Northern Ireland, 6 May 1966, excerpt (2:40), now released in full (8:18) on the Columbia/Legacy USA/Europe 36CD set The 1966 Live Recordings, Nov 2016

Thanks to Artur Jarosinski for finding this and Ian Woodward for additional information.


Sep 2005: (RealPlayer Online Music Store (US Only) )

R-0711    Boots Of Spanish Leather - recorded live at Carnegie Hall, New York, 26 Oct 1963, from the six-track CD Bob Dylan Live At Carnegie Hall 1963, see 2005

Note the title is misspelled "Carnagie"! This track was available in the US only and is not on iTunes.

Thanks to Jean-Pol Hiernaux for information about this item.


Nov 2005 (download sites such as iTunes):

"Exclusive Out-takes From 'The Bootleg Series Vol. 7: No Direction Home - The Soundtrack'"- Three Track Download Only Single, Columbia (no catalogue number) (USA), 1 Nov 2005/(Europe), 14 Nov 2005:
Thanks to Terry Kelly and Ian Woodward for the news that to coincide with Bob touring the UK three tracks were made available from 14 Nov 2005 for download from sites such as iTunes! The three tracks were recordings considered for inclusion on the soundtrack to the Martin Scorsese picture "No Direction Home", and one of them is available on the bonus disc with the DVD release. These tracks are in MPEG4 (.m4p) format, which is a copyrighted format that can be copied to an iPod and only be burned to CD-R using the iTunes software.

R-0725 Baby, Please Don't Go (Big Joe Williams) - out-take from The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, recorded Columbia Studios, New York, 25 Apr 1962
There were two complete takes of this song from the recording sessions according to Michael Krogsgaard, one take of which is in circulation amongst Dylan fans. Thanks to Bob Stacy for confirming this sounds like that take in better quality.
Both takes have now been released on the Sony Music Europe 4CD set The 50th Anniversary Collection, Dec 2012.

R-0726 Mr. Tambourine Man - live, Newport Folk Festival, Newport, RI, 26 Jul 1964 (evening performance)
Note this is not the audio of the bonus track from the Martin Scorsese documentary film "Bob Dylan: No Direction Home", DVD release, Sep 2005, see
VHS & DVD 2000s Part 3. That track is dated incorrectly as 26 Jul 1964 but is actually from the afternoon workshop on the 24th and not from the evening performance on the 26th. Thanks to Bob Stacy for identifying these performances.

R-0727 Outlaw Blues -  alternate take from Bringing It All Back Home, recorded Columbia Studios, New York, 13 Jan 1965 (wrongly listed as "16 Jan 1965")
This alternate take was then previously uncirculating. Thanks to Bob Stacy for pointing out that the published date of 16 Jan 1965 cannot be right, as Michael Krogsgaard's series of articles "Bob Dylan: The Recording Sessions" shows that the album recording sessions took place on 13-15 Jan 1965. This take is probably the final take from 13 Jan 1965. The date of 16 Jan 1965 may have been when selected takes were extracted to a compilation reel for consideration for the Bringing It All Back Home album.
Thanks to Roger Ford for information that this take is now on both the 6CD and 18CD versions of The Bootleg Series Vol. 12 - Bob Dylan 1965-1966 The Cutting Edge released in Nov 2015 (6CD version - CD1, track 14; 18CD version - CD1, track 10), so is now no longer a rarity.


Picture from Play.com found by Éamonn Ó Catháin

Thanks to Jean-Pol Hiernaux for the information that this download CD single was also made available at iTunes stores in Austria, Belgium, Germany, Greece, Finland, France, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Portugal and Spain, but not in the I Tunes stores of Australia, Canada, Denmark, Japan, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland! Thanks to Peter Coulthard and Éamonn Ó Catháin for information that this online EP is also available for download in MP3 format from Play.com in the UK: Thanks to Georg Thoma for information that the EP was available in lossless format (CD quality) from Music Load Austria, but Justin Brooks informs me this site has now shut down.


Dec 2005 (iTunes):

R-0709 The Times They Are A-Changin' - recorded live at Carnegie Hall,  New York, 26 Oct 1963, from the limited edition six-track CD Bob Dylan Live At Carnegie Hall 1963, Sony Music (USA/Japan), 2005

This track was available from the iTunes store in the USA only.

Thanks to Jack Guerreiro for information. Thanks to Paul S. Levine for information that this track was also available in Dec 2005 from iTunes:

R-0544 Man Of Peace - recorded with the Grateful Dead during rehearsals at Club Front, San Rafael, CA, 9 Jun 1987, from the Grateful Dead Records/Arista album Postcards Of The Hanging: The Grateful Dead Play The Music Of Bob Dylan, 2002


"Live Folk Masters: Blowin' In The Wind [Digitally Reworked]" - Five Track Download Only EP, Apple iTunes Music Store (no catalogue number) (European stores), 14 Dec 2005 (removed 8 Jan 2006):


Picture from iTunes UK web-site
The tracks are: A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall (6:45); Bob Dylan's Dream (3:39); Boots Of Spanish Leather (4:40); John Brown (4:40); Blowin' In The Wind (2:39). Bob Stacy has identified these tracks as all previously officially unreleased, recorded for Studs Terkel's Wax Museum, Radio WFMT, Chicago, IL, 26 Apr 1963. The programme included Farewell as the first song (see my Starlight In The East "F" page), and then the songs as listed, but with Who Killed Davey Moore? between John Brown and Blowin' In The Wind. However, these songs were originally performed solo, here they have been buried under a vile cacophony of electronic instrumentation - strongly not recommended! This is a great shame, as the original solo acoustic versions represent an important historical document - this is the first public performance of Boots Of Spanish Leather.

These tracks have been created by CARINCO AG, which is a Swiss company, very present on the German market, and has released a lot of cheap CDs and especially musical DVDs (anthologies of blues, country, folk, jazz, etc.). There is a contract between CARINCO AG and DIGITAL MUSICWORKS INTERNATIONAL INC (DMI) and during 2005, especially November and December, CARINCO AG and DMI have released various collections (all “TM”) of downloadable EPs or LPs on iTunes: “Blues Masters”, “Rock Masters”, “Jazz Masters”, “Soul Masters”, “Folk Masters”, “Classical Masters”, and “Classical Vocal Masters”. In the collection Live Folk Masters, Bob Dylan is currently the only artist.

Thanks to Jean-Pol Hiernaux and Bob Stacy for information. This EP was downloadable from the 17 European iTunes music stores, but not the US, Canadian, Australian and Japanese stores. I have checked through a friend with Bob Dylan's office, and they say the tracks are from bootlegs, reworked and released without permission. The Studs Terkel material has not been authorised for release by Bob or Columbia, and I'm sure the 1966 material (see below) is illegal also. I am only listing this material for reference, and it was removed from iTunes on 8 Jan 2006. I hope that Bob's office and Columbia will be spurred to release this show officially so it can be heard as intended!


"Live Folk Masters: Visions Of Johanna" - 13 Track Download Only Album, Apple iTunes Music Store (no catalogue number) (European stores), 14 Dec 2005 (removed 13 Jan 2006):


Picture from iTunes Belgium web-site
A new set of 13 tracks from Carinco AG appeared on 3 Jan 2006 as Visions Of Johanna, including the tracks from the "Blowin' In The Wind" EP above plus Farewell (which is mistitled "My Own True love" as on bootlegs) and Who Killed Davey Moore, all from Studs Terkel. They are without digital reworking this time but with fake applause! This album also includes the acoustic set from a 1966 concert with sound reported as poor. Jean-Pol Hiernaux has identified the 1966 tracks as from the Adelphi Theatre, Dublin, Ireland, 5 May 1966. They're almost certainly taken from one of the circulating bootleg CDs. Again fake applause was added, totally unnecessarily.

Thanks to Jean-Pol Hiernaux for information. This album was downloadable from the 17 European iTunes music stores, but not the US, Canadian, Australian and Japanese stores, and was removed on 13 Jan 2006. As above, I shall not be listing the material except for reference.

15 Aug 2006: Thanks to "rbn" for informing me that both the "Blowin' In The Wind" and "Visions Of Johanna" Live Folk Masters offerings are available for download from the RealNetworks Rhapsody site. I assume that Bob's management will eventually intervene to have them removed.

Thanks to Artur Jarosinski, Harold Lepidus, Éamonn Ó Catháin and Jean-Pol Hiernaux for information.

The 1973 Dylan album:

R-0096 Spanish Is The Loving Tongue (Charles Badger Clark/Billy Simon) - band version with backing singers, Self Portrait out-take recorded at Columbia Studios, Nashville, TN, 24 Apr 1969, not the solo version R-0072 released in 1971 as a single B-side, which was a 1970 New Morning out-take
See the note about writer credits for this song in the entry for R-0072 in 1971.

R-0097 Lily Of The West (Traditional, arranged E. Davies/J. Peterson) - New Morning out-take, recorded Columbia Studios, New York, 3 Jun 1970

R-0098 Sarah Jane (traditional) - New Morning out-take, recorded Columbia Studios, New York, 1 Jun 1970

R-0099 A Fool Such As I (Bill Trader) - Self Portrait out-take recorded at Columbia Studios, Nashville, TN, 26 Apr 1969
This is the stereo version, a mono version (presumably a reduction from stereo) was released on Columbia 7" singles (R-0453, see 1974) This song was written by Bill Trader, but occurs frequently on releases of this album and Columbia singles wrongly credited to "B. Abner" - see a page on the authorship here!

R-0100 Can't Help Falling In Love (Hugo Peretti/Luigi Creatore/George David Weiss) - New Morning out-take, recorded Columbia Studios, New York, 3 Jun 1970, this track was reportedly also the A-side of a South Korean single, see Questionable Releases

Now also released on The Bootleg Series Vol. 7: No Direction Home, Sep 2005, but in a version with a spoken intro, so R-0514 remains a rarity. R-0514 was also released on Step Right Up!, a compilation CD given away with the Jul 2010 edition of the UK "Mojo" magazine, see 2010.

R-0240 Wade In The Water (traditional) - from the "Minnesota Hotel Tape", Minneapolis, MN, 22 Dec 1961, previously released on Bakhålls Litterära Röster (The Ambush's Literary Voices), compilation CD given away with an issue of the literary magazine "Bakhåll", Sweden (see 1994). A short excerpt was also included in the Highway 61 Interactive CD-ROM (see 1995). It also appeared on the 2001 Japanese live compilation Bob Dylan Live 1961-2000: Thirty Nine Years Of Great Concert Performances (see 2001)

R-0467 Handsome Molly (Traditional) - live at the Gaslight Café, New York, Oct 1962, previously released on the Japan-only CD Bob Dylan Live 1961-2000: Thirty-Nine Years Of Great Concert Performances, Feb 2001 see 2001, and on Bob Dylan Live At The Gaslight 1962, Starbucks/Hear Music/Sony Music Custom Marketing Group (USA), see 2005

R-0725 Baby, Please Don't Go (Big Joe Williams) - out-take from The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, recorded Columbia Studios, New York, 25 Apr 1962, previously available on the iTunes downloadable 3-track single Exclusive Out-takes From "The Bootleg Series Vol. 7: No Direction Home - The Soundtrack", Nov 2005, see above

R-0709 The Times They Are A-Changin' - live at Carnegie Hall,  New York, 26 Oct 1963, from the limited edition six-track CD Bob Dylan Live At Carnegie Hall 1963, Sony Music (USA/Japan), 2005

R-0710 Ballad Of Hollis Brown - live at Carnegie Hall,  New York, 26 Oct 1963, from the limited edition six-track CD Bob Dylan Live At Carnegie Hall 1963, Sony Music (USA/Japan), 2005

R-0711 Boots Of Spanish Leather - live at Carnegie Hall,  New York, 26 Oct 1963, from the limited edition six-track CD Bob Dylan Live At Carnegie Hall 1963, Sony Music (USA/Japan), 2005

R-0712 North Country Blues - live at Carnegie Hall,  New York, 26 Oct 1963, from the limited edition six-track CD Bob Dylan Live At Carnegie Hall 1963, Sony Music (USA/Japan), 2005

R-0294 To Ramona - unidentified live performance, misdated as The Oval, City Hall, Sheffield, England, 30 Apr 1965, from the 2000 DVD release of D.A. Pennebaker's 1965 film Don't Look Back, see VHS & DVD 2000s Part 1
This performance is definitely not the one known by Dylan collectors to be from Sheffield (from an audience tape containing six songs which could only have been recorded at Sheffield). My guess is that it's from City Hall, Newcastle, England, 6 May 1965, see VHS & DVD 2000s Part 1.

R-0727 Outlaw Blues -  alternate take from Bringing It All Back Home, recorded Columbia Studios, New York, 13 Jan 1965, previously available on the iTunes downloadable 3-track single Exclusive Out-takes From "The Bootleg Series Vol. 7: No Direction Home - The Soundtrack", Nov 2005, see above

All versions are as far as I know still in mono as originally recorded. Sadly, it does not appear on the B-side of a withdrawn CBS Spanish EP (see 1972), because the record was mispressed with It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry from Highway 61 Revisited instead!

R-0064 I Ain't Got No Home - recorded live with The Band at the Tribute to Woody Guthrie, Carnegie Hall, New York, 20 Jan 1968 (afternoon show), from the Tribute to Woody Guthrie Part 1 album  (see 1972)

There are a bewildering number of download variations on the Dylan 3CD set and the extracted single CD on various iTunes sites worldwide with different bonus tracks! As well as R-0826 there are three new rarities for download:

R-0436 Blowin' In The Wind - live, Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium, Santa Cruz, CA, 16 Mar 2000, previously found on the limited edition bonus CD single given away with The Best Of Bob Dylan Vol. 2 in the UK, 2000
This is listed as "Recorded in Australia, Aug 1998", but it's actually the performance shown! Thanks to Richard Hillier for confirming this.

R-0681 Tryin' To Get To Heaven - live audience recording from the UK in 2000 (now identified as Wembley Arena, London, England, 5 Oct 2000) (A), originally released on a Columbia US promo CD single, 2004
This track was previously identified wrongly as from the Guildhall, Portsmouth, England, 25 Sep 2000. It is now included on the third CD of the 3CD set of The Bootleg Series Vol. 8 - Tell Tale Signs: Rare And Unreleased 1989-2006 (see 2008). As this set is a Limited Edition of 5000 copies, R-0681 remains a rarity.

R-0270 Can't Wait - El Rey Theater, Los Angeles, 20 Dec 1997, originally included on the 1998 European Columbia Love Sick CD singles, see 1998

Confusingly, the Dylan album information given on all screens is for the 1973 deleted album of the same name, see 1973. Thanks to Éamonn Ó Catháin for news this has now been corrected.

There is a concert including Bob at the SNACK Benefit, San Francisco, CA, 23 Mar 1975 with Neil Young and members of The Band. Unfortunately there was a fault with Bob's microphone and he is almost inaudible, so this is for completists only! There are also four concerts from the Rolling Thunder Revue from Oct-Dec 1975. Bob is credited with guitar/vocals on all four but there are no songs sung by him online, only from other members of the Revue.
