26 thoughts on “Lossless Bootleg Bonanza: Bob Dylan – 1974 Soundboard Collection

  1. Despite its name it should be noted that some of these are obviously audience recordings. Still some killer stuff. I’ve actually posted at least one of these shows before, but this set is too good not to post it all together.

    1. The last 4 songs at Boston are definitely audience because the commonly circulated sbd tape ended with the Band’s 2nd set. Everything else apart from one or two songs in L.A. should be sbd.

  2. Mat,

    very familiar with these shows but not this release. All of these SHOULD be SBD as they are all available from the board.. Wonderland Recs have a reputation for simply cloning other labels discs and grouping them up like this. Of course that isn’t necessarily a bad thing, particularly if you don’t have ’em yet!

    Unusual for Wonderland to be found in Bob country. All their previous releases i’ve stumbled upon have been Elvis SBD collections.

    Nice thing about the ’74 boards is that they span most of the tour, so you can track the evolution (or deterioration) in Bob’s vocal delivery. Of course the excitement levels are solid to the end and The Band are also in awesome form throughout.

  3. I’ve not given the entire thing a listen yet, but at least one disk definitely sounds like an audience recording. At least it has a lot of crowd noise in general and specifically you can hear one dude yelling a lot like he’s standing close to the mic.

  4. I really recommend that you d/l the pdf tour guide book at the link above. It is a fantastic review of the tour and the available tapes/sources and boot releases etc for each show.

    Assuming that the Lossless Bob is correct in the eac check, then you can take it as ‘gospel’ that you have the very best sources for these shows. In any case I am sure that Wonderland do not attempt any mastering or matrixing etc. AUD recordings do exist for most of these shows, possible they or the torrent is in error. However it is unlikely. Basically this was a very ‘lively’ tour played out to hysterical arenas full of those lucky enough to beat the odds and obtain the holy grail of a ticket! This is probably what you are picking up.

    The last 2 LA gigs are the source gigs for ‘Before the Flood’ album. Maybe there is some mixdown and these are not pure desk recs. I’ve never listened to them in great detail. It is the beginning of the tour that i have always preferred, both for setlist and also for Bob’s more nuanced delivery (i.e. not shouting) The tapes for those early Jan shows are only reasonable AUD recs however.

  5. I’ll have to listen again. It may have just been the difference in sound from one show to the next. Sometimes that can be pretty jarring. Maybe it was a soundboard recording and the fans were just super excited. Whatever the case its still some darn fine music.

  6. Hey Mat, cheers for all the great shows just wondering if you happened to have any Willie Nelson shows, in particular from 73-79
    Cheers

  7. I do have a few Willie shows, but nothing from that period. The latest I go back is the 90s with him. Unfortunately even those shows are on some CD somewhere and I’ve yet to locate my external CD-ROM in which to rip them. I can send you some MP3s though. Here’s what I have:

    Willie Nelson
    06/12/93
    06/07/00

    Willie Nelson & Asleep At The Wheel
    02/23/09

    Willie Nelson & Merle Haggard
    12/03/97

  8. Not to state the obvious but I really think Dylan’s backing band was A+ crackerjack on this tour. Very cowboyesque … the same tenor as ’71 Dead in my mind.

  9. Yeah, those boys in The Band were pretty good 😉

    I’ve actually never been a huge fan of The Band (I’ve tried many times to enjoy Music From The Big Pink and failed every time) but when they played with Dylan they rock it.

  10. Great collection but all the downloads (both FLAC and MP3) get blocked by my compute security – it says they all contain malware / spyware ?? I’ve never had a problem before with MC links – any help appreciated

  11. Tried to download the files but my internet security says the files have spyware in them ?
    Any ideas anyone – I have never had this before with MC

    1. Thanks Mat – very odd I still get the message ‘this file contains a virus’ but have ignored it and saved them anyway. I’m sure it is just Kaspersky getting in a panic about nothing. Thanks for a great post

  12. Anyone else having problems downloading shows. I seem to only be getting parts of each file I download and these wont open. Anyone got any ideas?

  13. Great !
    But I encountered a problem when I uploaded a few tracks to my Soundcloud account for sharing.
    The first two went OK but the third one was removed within a minute ..
    And I almost immediately received an email from their websheriff, stating that they detected a copyright infringement in the track
    The Ballad Of Hollis Brown from cd 1.
    Lilith Records ( never heard of them before this) claim to own the copyrigh to that specific track….why only that one and not the other two beats me…I’ve disputed the claim…
    Can anyone shed any light on this ?

    1. Who knows? My guess is that the Web Sheriff runs bots all the time that search Soundcloud for artists and song titles that they’ve been hired to protect. They really don’t care if its an official release or something like I post that isn’t officially released anywhere and thus semi-ok.

      You are not likely to win that dispute as the song is still copyrighted, even if the specific recording is not.

      1. The song itself is not copyrighted to Lilith Records…a shady outfit if you ask me…

        http://bobdylan.com/songs/ballad-hollis-brown/

        Copyright © 1963 by Warner Bros. Inc.; renewed 1991 by Special Rider Music

        So how they can claim that baffles me.
        And why only this song and not the other two ?
        I don’t have much experience with disputing a claim but I will let you know what happens 😊

  14. From what I gather Lillith Records is based out of Russia and they deal mostly in bootlegs, most likely illegally. I’m going to guess that they’ve released some Bob Dylan boots with that song on it (possibly even this one, I don’t know.) So they hire the Sheriff (and if you are asking me the Sheriff is pretty shady too) to make take down requests.

    Do they legally have a claim to the music? No. Does the Sheriff care? No again. Are places like Soundcloud going to pay close attention to whether or not they do? Not likely. Most of those places just take everything down when a request is made. They’d rather you lose a little online music than get themselves sued into oblivion.

    It is for this reason I think you’ll lose. Lillith probably doesn’t have the rights, but Dylan does and while this show hasn’t been officially released it doesn’t mean its exactly legal to be sharing them either.

    Sorry I’m a bit cynical about this, but I’ve been dealing with take down notices for years. I’ve learned to just roll with it.
