From the original uploader:
There’s been enough interest in the fragmentary line recordings I’ve been posting lately that I thought I’d put this one up. It’s incomplete (here) for a different reason, because so much of it (roughly half) has been officially released. Here’s the “missing” half.

These tracks do not come from the common commercial bootleg of the concert (Hollow Horn), which was tampered with a bit and doesn’t include, inter alia, the opening (crowd only) segment. I don’t think anything of great value was omitted, but I don’t know of a detailed comparison. This recording is reliably reported to be an unaltered copy of the original, professional reels.

This recording came onto general circulation shortly after the release of the commercial boot. It’s never been up on DIME before (aside from a version including the official tracks, banned within minutes in 2009), probably due to the major surgery required to make it comply with DIME’s TOS regarding official content. I’ve preserved the original track names, in case anyone else has the original flacs hanging around and wants to help seed. lists this concert as the live debut of “Hattie Carroll,” but I believe it’s more likely that Dylan played it at His “dress rehearsal” concert in Philadelphia the night before.

A Couple of Things

The other day I got a random, slightly cryptic e-mail inviting me to a Bob Dylan site.  It gave me a username/password and told me I’d have to get a premium File Factory account.  I looked at the site and it contained a huge amount of Dylan shows, but again all hidden behind a premium File Factory account.  I was skeptical at first, but after passing a few e-mails back and forth with the owner and being far too excited about all those shows I laid my money down.  Luckily FF was having  a sale and I got a 1 year account fairly cheap.

Turns out all those Dylan shows are MP3 only.  At first I found this to be really annoying (don’t get me wrong I’ll still be downloading them all and reposting) but then I realized my premium FF account works for all sorts of things.  So I have been systematically downloading not only all the Dylan MP3s but also going through various other bootleg blogs and grabbing everything I can via File Factory.

Which is awesome, but also means some of you will need to be even more careful when it comes to grabbing things you already have.  I’ll still be posting stuff I’ve grabbed from the torrents and regular trades, etc, but expect to see more stuff you’ve already seen on the regular blogs.  Oh and lots and lots of Dylan MP3s.

Speaking of seeing things you might have seen before, I’m going to spend the next week or two going through some old e-mails and reposting a bunch of requests.  I’m really rather terrible and replying to e-mails and remembering to repost things when I say I will.  I get a lot of e-mails coming into my account that I post publicly on the blog and things tend to get buried fast.  Which means I’ll see something, maybe even reply to it and then forget all about it.  Sometimes this means I’ll promise to reupload something and then forget to do it.  So now I want to actually keep those promises.  Which means you’ll be seeing a lot more reups for a little while.

Anyways, I hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving (and for those of you non-Americans, I hope you had a grand Thursday.)  And as always, keep enjoying the tunes.
