This one comes from LB-1013 original set (Yassas Remaster), though I just made a simple de-equalization to make it sound closer to the original recording I had from the 2nd session.

Original Uploader’s intervention
a) Slight deamplification of -1.35 dB throughout
b) Gradual mid cut of -0.82 through -1.34 dB, slightly applied from 1k to 2.5k (through the whole set)

Lineage: shnf (LB-1013) > wav (mkwACT) > wav (adobe audition 1.5 – de-eq.) > renamed flacs (Rname-it.exe) > flac (flac 1.2.1b w/flac frontend 1.7.1 – align on SB option – level 8 – verify on)

November 1972 – January 1973 Sam Peckinpah’s House, Durango, Mexico

1. Billy [0:40]

Bob Dylan (guitar & vocal) with a male voice shily accompaining Bob in the background

Mono recording, 3 minutes (the segment included here is only a 40″ sample)
Received as flac from Michpom. The only one thing he did with it was to pitch it down a little bit using Magic Easy Cleaning software.
Lineage: ?>open reel>DAT>CD-R>wav(easy CDDA extractor)>magic easy cleaning(pitch down)>.flac(flac 1.2.1)>renamed flac(Rname-it.exe)

NOT INCLUDED IN THIS SET (low sound quality)

December 1972 or January 1973 Sam Peckinpah’s house, Durango, Mexico

12. (instrumental) [4:19]
13. (instrumental) [3:11]
14. Billy [3:45]

Note that not included set is just the same one as presented on last 3 tracks of the boot “PAT & BILLY / BOB & SAM”, which turned out to be fake. Track 14 is and edited/degraded version of take #5 from the 1st session (“Billy 4” on the official album) which has been probably taken from the movie soundtrack or movie outtakes discarded during the editing process (as it does include sound effects, such as boot steps and marching horses) and the instrumentals just unidentified pieces which might not indeed come from Peckinpah’s House recording as only circulating take from that event is the above mentioned 3 minutes Billy.

  1. I originally posted this back in 2012. At some point the copyright owner of “Sweet Amarillo” gave me a take down notice. I’ve now reposted it with that song removed. Please feel free to DM me about this.
