Genuine Bootleg Series
Manufacturer: Scorpio
Catalog No. 94-14-01/02/03

Released: 1994 ; Re-release 1999

This incredible 3 CD set is packed full of outtakes and live performances spanning 3 decades of Dylan's career. A lot of the material circulates on tape, LP, and/or other CD releases; but this first rate package is a great collection of them all in one place. While not as nice as having the complete set of outtakes of each venue package together, still; for a compilation type of package... (think of the official Bootleg series 1-3) other than the silk screen on the discs themselves, this series is hard to match. Each disc contains four macaws that don't relate to anything Dylan. The package includes the 3 CDs, each in a separate and unique black and white cardboard sleeve. All packed in a glossy full color cardboard photo box. Included is a booklet that lists tracks along with the venues, dates, and wonderful vintage photos. A true labor of love package. Part 1 of a series that also includes 2 & 3.
