From the original uploader:
Nice recording of a famous Bruce show from the Born to Run era. There’s some fericious guitar soloing at the end of Saint. Note there are a couple of dropouts during the first minute of Kitty’s Back, as present on the source.

From the CD liner. This is the set perfomed after a bomb threat forced the evacuation of the theater. The first six songs before the bomb threat were not on the master. It’s an incomplete show, but a wild and fantastic show went on after it was safe to return to the hall.

From the Boot’s Top 50. The (in)famous “Bomb Scare Show.” Forty-five minutes into the concert, the building had to be cleared due to a bomb scare. Bruce and the band evidently spent the time in the bar of the “Phhhhhhhhister” hotel continuing the “bomb” motif, if you know what I mean. Bruce came back to the stage feeling rather loose, and several times during Little Queenie, he asked the audience, “Are ya loose?” starting a Bruce catch phrase that lasts to this day.

The original package for this Winged Wheel release is a two color cardboard gatefold pack. The photo is of a couple years later than the recorded material… at NYC’s CBS Studio A. A paper insert lists full song details. The silk screened silver disc is a wonderful reproduction of a vinyl LP. The retouched (r) back cover is a bobsboots creation that contains an additional spine on the left side to simulate a jewel case insert.

Review from someone:
Though not as famous as the Hotel Tape, This recording from Bonnie Beecher’s apartment predates that one by half a year. Dylan’s progress was explosive during this time, and half a year was a lifetime. The tape is nowhere near the league of the later recording, partly because of the low quality of the original recording, and partly due to a remarkably uninspired performance. One of the first times that a young Bob would hear himself on tape; nerves, inexperience, and limited repertoire would result in, at best, this mediocre offering. The tape is significant, however, not only for its historical importance, but also as a standard by which to compare the December tape. The cover photo is from CBS archives, and pictures Dylan in Columbia Studios, NY 1962 during the recording of his second LP.
