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.

  1. apparently i can’t unzip this having downloaded to my mac through chrome…? is that on my end? i downloaded the 320 mp3.

  2. Mat,

    As you know i have a deep fear of Chrome. From time to time i install it purely to assist in clearing my pending ‘mega’ links queue. I ue it once in a blue moon, i never use it for any other purpose, i opt out of all google analytics etc. After binging on my downloading i uninstall and even del the setup file, which my malware scanner is convinced is dodgy!

    Recently my old win pc has been slow and clogged, my very expensive and totally dependable power supply has been ‘racing’, getting hot for no apparent reason and then causing unexpected and sudden shutdowns. Decided to do some housekeeping, scans, registry cleans, uninstalls etc. All malware checks etc were negative, all software reported the pc to be totally clean. I then decided to free some much needed disk space. Went looking fo suitable candidates. In view of the above i was horrified to discover Google had downloaded and stored >8GB of whatever it does, in my local settings\application data folder!!

    For comparisons sake this is approx half the size of a full windows installation, about 200 time the necessary size for a fully featured browser. Presumably all this is done in compliance with some permission i granted buried deep in the terms and conditions of the chrome install. Whatever it represents it was all done in the background and with no interaction from me whatsoever.

    Few questions

    1. What the hell is all this functionality doing?
    2. What impact is all this having on the everyday performance of my computer?
    3. What data are Google collecting about a user who doesn’t even use this browser on a regular basis, and who has proactively opted out of everything on more than one occasion?

    Moral of this story is

    Be afraid, be very very afraid

    Incidentally, since removing all this garbage and all traces of Chrome from my computer, it has returned to a faster, more stable state, the power supply has calmed down completely and it has not crashed at all.

    Message to Steve – use another browser, any other browser!

  3. Oh sorry, aside from my general (yet totally justified) paranoia, one of the multitude of reasons i decided to uninstall Chrome (AGAIN) was it’s tendency to produce corrupt or stalled downloads. I now understand that my irregular use meant that Chrome had far too many things of it’s own to do on the rare occasions i opened it. In addition I only used it to d/l from MEGA and never from Amazon.

    It is however one more reason (how many do you need?) to not have this **** on your computer.
