No fix required. The digital silence gaps fall at beg/end of discs, between sets or evident tape edits, do not warrant removal as sector alignment would modify all tracks which are otherwise without any audible flaws.

Lossless Bootleg Bonanza: Bob Dylan – Build a Ladder to the Stars, 1974

Download: FLAC/MP3

Thanks as always to Nellie at Expecting Rain for this compilation. As per usual she has included an enormous amount of information in the text files which I have not included here (but do remain in the download) in order to save space.

Tour ’74 is a much misunderstood part of Dylan’s live performance canon.
The early concerts are quite different to the later ones which formed Before The Flood.

There have been various great compilations of Tour ’74 in the past,
most notably the silver boot Phantoms Of My Youth (Capricorn) and
Bob Meyer’s amazing Nineteen74 from 1981, a “best of” from his exhaustive, and at the time definitive, “1974 Project”.

However, since then, many pristine complete soundboards (& bits of soundboards) have emerged,
along with great audience tapes from Chicago and Hollywood. This new compilation reflects this.

One of the great surprises is the performance & sound quality of The Band songs, which are also included here.

Sound quality here is generally very good to excellent, but some tracks only exist in fair to poor sound.
Unfortunately, the first three tracks from Chicago are in poor sound –
if you don’t like these completist tracks, use the “skip” button.

Hope you enjoy it. You might be pleasantly surprised.

Lies, damn lies & statistics:

All the songs performed by Dylan & The Band on Tour’74.
20 of a total of 41 concerts represented here.
86 tracks.
59 different songs.

From the original uploader:
I first found and circulated this through trades six-plus years ago, and was going through a shoebox earlier today and found it. I haven’t ever torrented it, so thought I would. It is definitely for completists, but stands as one of the very few documents of Dylan’s evolving live sound in the Fall of 1965. I still think that the download is worth it just for Maggie’s Farm.

This is a hissy SBD, indicating a cassette gen or two in there somewhere.
The music, on the other hand, is perfect.
This is an awesome show, exactly 2 months before the Last Waltz.
