Beware of warped discs and non-fill on this repress. Cobbled together a decent set from three copies but non fill still present on some of the discs-inaudible but still. Disc one in particular was warped on the three copies I have seen. Great to have but just be careful!

If the Bootleg Series from Bob Dylan has proved anything, it's that over and over the best Zimmerman tunes were those that for whatever reason he never officially released or alternate versions that ended up being superior to those that found their way on an album. Volume 1 - 3, the first in the ongoing series, is the most complete, spreading over a thirty year span of his career and includes some of his best work like "Hard Times in New York Town," "Mama, You Been On My Mind," "Every Grain of Sand," "Series of Dreams," and the brilliant spoken work piece, "Last Thoughts on Woody Guthrie".

Unfortunately, the vinyl release was only released in the UK and typically goes for hundreds of dollars. However, if you are lucky (or patient) enough to get this one on vinyl, you'll pleased at the sound quality. Great mastering and dead quiet vinyl. It took me over two years, but I was finally able to snag up a copy (still sealed, too) without breaking the bank. Don't hesitate to grab this one if it ever comes your way at a decent price.

* One thing to note, the booklet is the same size as found in the CD and cassette versions, unlike the large, 12x12 versions found in the rest of the Bootleg Series on vinyl.

Quite simply, these are essential recordings for any Dylan fans, covering three decades of home recordings, demo's, alternative takes and songs that, sometimes inexplicably, didn't make the cut. It's not ALL great, and you can see why some of the tunes didn't make the cut, but they'll still be interesting to Dylanphiles. That said, there are some really beautiful gems in here that make you question the original track selection: "Moonshiner" is one of the best examples of Dylan's singing ability, "Last Thoughts On Woodie Guthrie" should have been made into a song, "Seven Curses" is beautiful, "I Shall Be Released" is better than anything released on the Basement Tapes and "Blind Willie McTell" is easily the best song he recorded in the whole of the 80's.

My dad had this and he guarded it like a treasure. I used to actually sneak and listen to it when he was out of the house, it got that bad! Unbelievable when you think about it. He was right, in a way, it is a treasure chest of unreleased secrets, many better than the album tracks of their era. Dylan made some strange track-choices at times.
