Bob Dylan and George Harrison - Studio Sessions 1970

Reloaded 02/June/2015 - This is another recording, that from what I can work out seems to have been circulated in different forms for many years. Since we originally ran this feature I came across some additional material with two extra songs, so I have added that version as well, as part two below. In addition to the original comments below, other sources have stated that this was very much a Bob Dylan session and George Harrison was an invited support player.  Before the days of The Travelling Wilburys perhaps the various egos still jostled for superiority. Whatever the case it makes for a good listen.  Bob Dylan and George Harrison are remembered for working together in The Traveling Wilburys in the late 1980's, and of course, Bob Dylan's guest appearance at George's 'Concert For Bangladesh' in 1971. This session is from May 1970, when both artists were busy on solo projects. Indeed Bob Dylan released two albums in 1970, 'Self Portrait' and '

Bob Dylan - BBC TV Centre 1965

This specific recording of Bob Dylan has an interesting history to go with it. The actual performance was back on June 1st 1965 at the BBC Television Centre in London with a studio audience. The set was then broadcast in two parts on BBC TV in the UK on the 15th and 26th June 1965. As far as I can find out the BBC broadcast the second half of the recording first. The notes that accompanied this recording provide the actual 'history' of this specific recording as follows. This specific audio track was originally recorded on the 15th & 26th June 1965, in Hull, Yorkshire, UK. using a KB domestic 1/4in. recorder with a BSR tape deck, running at a speed of 3.75ips via a line connection to Rediffusion wired system junction box (TV set). This tape, while in great quality, came in the wrong speed and needed some work before it was listenable.Volume, speed & pitch corrected in London, U.K. 10th - 12th September 2005 using CoolEdit Pro 2.0. Some additional remastering

Bob Dylan - Live In Canada 1962

Having just released his thirty third solo album 'Together Through Life' , which has received some very positive reviews, I thought it would be interesting to wind the clock back some 47 years! This is Bob Dylan back on the 2nd July 1962, live at the Finjan Club in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, a venue that I have no further details of, however judging from the audience, I would imagine it was quite an intimate affair. This is taken from the Yellow Dog, CD version (Cat No YD010), probably the best bootleg version of this show. Source: Soundboard recording Sound Quality: Very good, this version 192kbps (MP3). Genre: Bob Dylan (early, acoustic, folk period). Set: Full set (cannot confirm). Set List: Death Of Emmett Till Stealin' ( Trad - Memphis Jug Band arr ) Hiram Hubbard ( Trad ) Blowin' In The Wind Rocks and Gravel ( Brownie McGhee ) Quit Your Lowdown Ways He Was A Friend of Mine ( Trad )* Let Me Die In My Footsteps Two Trains Runnin' ( Mc

Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash - Sessions 1969

This is hardly making it's Internet bootleg debut here, however the Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash sessions from 1969, remain elusive for many collectors, and I am happy to do my bit to help. The often asked question regarding these sessions is, why have they never been officially released ? The musically historical importance, audio quality, and perhaps the actual performances themselves, make that a reasonable question, however in all honesty forty years on, the 'cats out of the bag' if you get my drift? The contents of the sessions are detailed in track lists below, if you have just passing interest in either of these two artists, I would suggest that the recordings are well worth a listen. Source: Taken from an early generation silver CD. Sound Quality: Very good stereo soundboard, studio and auditorium. Genre: In all fairness Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash will suffice. Track List: BS studios, Nashville, TN , USA - February 17th -18th, 1969 . 01 Good Ol'

Bob Dylan Part One - The Hollywood Bowl - 1965

The controversy of it all! 1965, the year Bob Dylan 'went electric' . Looking back now, it all seems so quaint. Fans outraged that Bob Dylan had sold out, abandoning his folk roots, and daring to perform with a band, and not only that, some of them had 'electric guitars'. It all began at the Newport Folk Festival in July of that year, with the crowd apparently 'booing' as he performed three songs with what was then most of The Paul Butterfield Band . The legend of going electric (with the famously recorded heckle of 'Judas' the following year in Manchester - England), is of course in the scheme of things pretty unimportant, but way back then the folkies were clearly a serious bunch, not open much to their icons doing the unthinkable. Mind you it did not do Bob's record sales any harm, and can you imagine 'Desire' or 'Blood On The Tracks' as wholly acoustic affairs? After the Newport festival and in support of the
