From the original uploader:
Here’s a very nice sounding, mostly complete audience show from Osaka 1975. It’s sourced from an LP, but I do not know the name or info of the boot. Sample included of As the Years Go Passing By – EC has only played this tune a few times, one would think.

And a note about the EC series I’ve been enjoying bringing to you: I have one more to put up in this part of the series, then I will be jumping to my favorite EC tour – I have several nice sounding blues shows (’94 – ’95) that I haven’t seen up on the tracker so stay tuned …

I decided to incorporate Diamonds On My Windshield and Spare Parts into a single track, despite that the back cover lists side B as tracks B1 – B5.
The condition of this vinyl bootleg was MINT when I played it back for digital transfer. There were only one or two pops, which I removed.
The exact date of this performance is unknown, but etree is claiming the date is from some point in February of 1975, so that’s what I’m going with (see link below).
Contrary to what the back cover says about the location of this recording, The Troubadour is technically located in West Hollywood, not Los Angeles.
Asylum Records released their own official compilation album entitled ‘Bounced Checks’, which does not contain anything from this recording.

Lossless Bootleg Bonanza: Bob Dylan – Best of the Rolling Thunder Review

Bob Dylan and The Rolling Thunder Revue
Best Of The Rolling Thunder Revue

Download: FLAC/MP3

From the original uploader:

This is a bootleg created by myself documenting the whole 1975-1976 tour, with almost every (if not every) track performed by Bob Dylan in Soundboard Quality (it sounds better than a lot of official releases) and the best performances by the other Thunder Revue artists. The research done with this is INCREDIBLE. I’ve looked up for all the bootlegs of this years, i’ve listened them, and i’ve selected the best cuts (comparing every song from one performance to the others)
The tracks have been edited (fade in-fade out, normalized volume, introductions of the songs…) in order to make it a more fluid experience, and it sounds just as an official record. The bootleg has some covers too (one for each of the 7 CDs) created by myself too.
This is the best album i’ve listened about The Thunder Revue tour, and it represents the best tour of Bob Dylan incredibly well.

The CD 1, 2, 3 and 4 contain almost every track played by Bob Dylan during 1975 and 1976 in an astonishing soundboard quality.
The CD 5 contain the best songs played by the other artists touring with Dylan on these years, on soundboard quality too.
The CD 6 and 7 contain some songs and rehearsals by Dylan during these years but It’s been separated from the four first CDs because of their worse quality in comparision to the other music on the compilation. Anyways, the quality of the performance of each song is worth the noise or bad recording it has, they’re extremely worth it too.

Geetarz Comments:

This is probably one of, if not the, most oft-booted Clapton shows ever, and it’s dizzying trying to keep track of all the different versions, remasters, etc. Rather than tell you which version I think you should listen to, I prefer just to put ’em up and let YOU decide.

There are debates as to the lineage of this recording – some sources list it as a soundboard, others as an impeccable audience recording. I tend to believe it is the latter, but even if I am wrong, does it really matter? If I feed you something you think is chicken, as long as it tastes like chicken, you’re full and who cares? Just enjoy the meal.

For me personally this is the 2nd official ROIO I came across of this performance, and the Slowhand Masterfile, although a bit dated now, has always stood the test of time in my opinion as a very worthy collection.
