From This is a 2008 release of the Infidels outtakes. The material has seen wide bootleg release, but not for the last several years. It seems to be a copy of Rough Cuts with a few minor changes. This is as nice a package as there has ever been for these outtakes. To start with, perhaps one of the best thought out title names in the history of bootlegs. It was used six years earlier for a title that was live from Tampa, but it didn't have much meaning for that release. It was actually the working title for the recording session that produced Infidels. So here we have the outtake material with the outtake title. Genius! There was an extensive Rolling Stone interview in 1984 where Bob confirmed this. Read that excerpt on the right. Then we have the incredible front cover photo that seems to scream the title in picture form. The fonts are clean and sharp, and the back cover photo and layout are masterful. The other muted color and sepia tone photos included in the package help to make this elegant release a must have! One point that is quite unusual is that the tray liner is a separate printed sheet from the back, and fits snugly between the two spines of the CD case. This version of Thief On The Cross is a nice recording with Bob's vocals quite clear. It has either been cleaned up, or it's a lower generation dub of the original circulating version. Either way it's a nice bonus to have included. The discs are packed full with 76 minutes on disc one and 77 on disc two, so you really get your money's worth. The rumor circulating about this mysterious European manufacturer is that there will be no other Dylan titles. With the taste and talent that they've displayed here, that would surely be a loss for the Dylan community. Other Labels should stand up and take note. This is a class act.
