CD Reviews

Whatever was handy
B. W. Fairbanks | Lakewood, OH United States | 10/13/2004
(2 out of 5 stars)

"An exhorbitantly priced single disc from Sony Japan that is a poor representation of Bob Dylan's work on the concert stage.

Clearly, whoever slapped this together just grabbed whatever was handy because there is no rhyme or reason to this set. A handful of rarities, some good (the jubilant "Somebody Touched Me") but others unremarkable (an okay "Deadman, Deadman"), are sandwiched between several performances previously released on "Hard Rain" (an energetic "Shelter From the Storm"), "Dylan and the Dead" (an incoherent "Slow Train") and "Unplugged" (the forgettable "Dignity"). None of these performances come close to qualifying as Dylan's best, but here they are, singled out as if they represent the highlights in nearly four decades worth of performances. And, as an import, it costs considerably more than any of the excellent multi-disc sets in "The Bootleg Series."

If you absolutely insist on owning a live version of "Country Pie," or are a die-hard who'll buy anything with Dylan's name on it, this disc is for you. All others should beware.

Expensive, but Worth it For Collectors
Stephanie Sane | from the Asylum | 10/03/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"In a way this material seems like it was all thrown together, but collectors are going to want to get it for the unreleased material that's been salted into it. "Wade in the Water" from 1961," gives us kind of a bluesy Mr. D. "Handsome Molly" recorded at the Gaslight a year later gives us a folksy Bob. "To Ramona" from the "Don't Look Back" film is a nice version, but maybe they could have left off the horrible "Dead Man, Dead Man" recorded in New Orleans in 1981. The stuff from the "Never Ending Tour," is nothing short of outstanding. This CD is worth everyone of those five stars even with that one stinker on it.Reviewed by Stephanie Sane"
Worth It For "Born In Time"
phillyfan329 | 07/21/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I have many official Bob Dylan CD's but I have never got into the bootlegs with Bob because it just is too much and too expensive for me to keep up with. That made this a good purchase for me because it had many songs from a broad time frame. I think all the songs on here are at least good and some are great.
I might be a neophyte here but I really think the live version of "Born In Time" is outstanding and is worth the price of this CD by itself. That version just shows what a great performer Bob Dylan is. I only wish the CD was a bit cheaper.
Finally I hope one day Dylan releases many more of his complete live concerts like the Dead or Pearl Jam have, particularly after reading Paul Williams 3rd Dylan book because it sounds like Dylan was doing much of his creating on stage in the 70's & 80's as opposed to in the studio. Ill keep my fingers crossed and make sure I tune in to XM radio on Wednesdays at 10 AM EST."
