Entering into Bob Dylan on my alphabetical bootleg upload makes me a little nervous. I absolutely adore Bob Dylan. I love him. His music informs my life. Yet I realize in the realm of fandom I am small change. I don’t have the breadth of knowledge, the countless hours of listening, reading, and all encompassing that so many fans do. When I post these bootlegs I worry that I will be nailed for posting lossy mp3s. I worry that any comment I take will be wrong, or fraudulent or stupid. So here, ye fans of greatness, stand aside, or I understand I am not worthy of Bob. I am but a peon next to Saint Bob. But, man, I do dig the man and his music and I want to share some shows. That might not be enough, but it is something.

This is a really interesting recording. Taken from a radio show and filled with lots of interesting interview bits here is Dylan before he became legend. He is not the becoming god, but a folksinger, a guy who found something in Woody Guthrie and is attempting to be a fellow troubadour. There are hints of legend, and especially the mystic as he answers questions often cryptically. The songs are essentially covers, but good ones and played by a man who knew the possession of history.
