This set of early Bob Dylan live performances is tremendous value despite the fact, as already noted by another reviewer, that the documentation is poor and the running order is odd. My interpretation of the songs' sources is as follows, but I'll happily stand to be corrected if anyone knows otherwise:
CD 1, tracks 1,4,9 & 10 from Riverside Church Jul 1961. CD1, tracks 2, 6, 8, 11, 14 & 16 and CD 2, tracks 1,3,4,7 & 8 from Cynthia Gooding Radio Show, Mar 1962. CD1, tracks 3,5,7,12,13,17 & 19 from Studs Terkel Radio Show Apr 1963. CD1, tracks 15 & 18 and CD2, tracks 2 & 9 from Oscar Brand Folk Festival Oct 1961. CD1, track 20, CD2 track 5 and CD3, track 15 from Les Crane TV Show Feb 1965. CD2, track 6 from Steve Allen TV Show 1964. CD2 tracks 10-16 from New York Gaslight Sep 1961. CD2, tracks 17-19 and CD4 tracks 1-22 from Bonny Beecher's Apartment Dec 1961 (Minnesota Hotel Tape). CD3, tracks 1-14 from Carnegie Chapter Hall Nov 1961.
These performances are all available elsewhere and the sound quality is variable as expected, but this is the most economical way to get them all. The track called 'Tell Me Baby' is more commonly known as 'Smokestack Lightning' and 'Dreamed A Dream' is 'Bob Dylan's Dream' I should take a star off for poor documentation, but I won't because of the incredibly good value of the set.
