This review is from: Bob Dylan : London Bridges Tour Of England 1965 CD/DVD Set (Audio CD)
This is a commercial boot rip-off item stolen directly from a fan sourced project that can be easily found in trading circles and elsewhere on the net, for free. Shouldn't be on sale here.

As a long-time Dylan fan(atic) I have learned over many years to be wary of newly released Dylan material. I have bought all of the officially released albums, including 'A Fool Such as I' and the Australia/Japan only releases 'Masterpieces' and '39 years Live'. This past year or so has seen the release of a deluge of previously rare material, some of which is first rate. Among the latter I would include many early live recordings, such as the 'Studs Terkel Wax Museum' and the Cynthia Gooding radio shows. Also very good are the 4CD set 'Dylan Live Collection' and the 'Finjian Club' recording as well as several others, most of which are available at very reasonable prices. This current product however appears to belong at the other end of the quality/value for money spectrum. A cursory internet search suggests a poorly recorded and produced product with an asking price of around £60. Even the photo illustration on the Amazon site is so blurred that it is illegible, probably for a good reason. This item is supposedly a limited edition of 500 copies, although i doubt very much that it will sell anywhere near that figure. We Dylanophiles may be seen as easy pickings to unscupulous record companies, but years of being ripped off mean that most of us have become a little more wary of what we shell our hard-earned pennies out for.
