  1. I swiped this from Expecting Rain. Its obviously very large (and very awesome) and I had to badger poor Nellie over at ER several times to get the whole thing. I had grabbed most of it when posted, but didn’t realize several of the links were on a different page and didn’t notice until they were already down. Which is to say I think I finally grabbed the whole thing and I think all of it is now correctly uploaded.

    But I could be wrong. If something is missing let me know.

    They included some really extensive notes which remains in a text file in the download. I whittled them down to make them a little more presentable here.

    1. I forgot to mention that the zip file names are screwy. I uploaded what I thought were all the file only to realize that I was missing a bunch. When I went back and got the rest the file names started over with Part 1, Part 2, etc so they aren’t all in order. Just download everything and you should be good.

  2. So we should download the “Stealing Women” files AND the “Stealing Women Comp” files?

    In any case, this looks amazing, thank you.

  3. ooh very nice, not the absolute greatest of years for Bob, but very necessary and as you put it ‘very awesome’ too. A few professional rec sources included, notably Berlin (from the famous and excellent ‘Exclusive Series’ boot, and Hyde Park ( a gig I was at – Mr EC was fab headlining that day and walked all over Bob that day incidentally, and The Who too)

    Thanks lots Mat, excellent work

    1. My memory of the limited number of shows I have from this year said 1996 wasn’t a great one, but man if this comp isn’t proving me wrong. I guess when you take the best songs from all the shows yo come up with something pretty great.

  4. 6/22/96 is my favorite unreleased Dylan show and I can’t really explain why. It kicks ass, that’s for sure. No songs here, so I thought I’d mention it while we’re talking about how disappointing that year might sound.

  5. The biggest problem with ’96 is that it isn’t the greatest of the NET Tour band lineups. Bob’s usually in fairly decent form. The arrangements are a tad simpler and less convoluted than ’95, which was a great tour in many ways but a little ‘overdone’ at times, particularly on some of the acoustic material. The real issue is that JJ Jackson, despite doing a decent job never reaches the levels of GE Smith or achieves the same telepathic empathy on the acoustic numbers. In addition, and even more significantly, despite the failed experiment of ‘recalling’ Ian Wallace in the intervening period, the memories of the immaculate Christopher Parker on the drums were just too strong for me. Winston Watson was an improvement, and his high energy style had it’s moments. However it took the recruitment of David Kemper on ’97 to get close to the magical ‘engine room’ of Mr Parker and Mr Garnier.

    But heck it’s a great set, and at the end of the day if it had been a truly A1 tour we’d need all the shows in their entiety in lossless anyway.

    Love these ‘one of everything’ comps anyhow

    thanks again

  6. Hi Matt, I’m one of those guys who ought to be thanking you for the amazing amount work you do for this blog but never gets around to it. So thanks!!
    That said, I wanted to note that after downloading this insane compilation and unzipping them all, I’ve discovered these issues: the FLAC 11 folder (with tracks 47-49 & 52) is duplicated. It’s in both Part 3 and Part 4. That’s minor, but the other issue is missing tracks. I can’t seem to find FLAC 16 – 18, which means tracks 70-81 are missing. It’s a pretty messy file set, so it’s easy to lose track of things. Thanks again, for everything!
