BBC RADIO: THE BOB DYLAN STORY (5) Hosted by Kris Kristopherson, this is the 10 part history with a variety of interviews with producers, musicians etc. Some excellent information and some great interviews with the likes of Bob Geldof and Tom Robinson. Every Dylan fan must own.
THE BOB DYLAN STORY AT 70 (5) Similar radio show and could be nearly the same as I listened to the above show years ago and didn't really compare the two. This one does bring things up to date in 2011 so maybe they tacked on some updates.
NO DIRECTION HOME PODCAST. It came as parts 1 and 2 from Itunes. Strangly, part 2 is the same as part one with a minute taken away. I have checked repeatedly to see if there is a different part two as the narrator does sort of refer to it. No dice. The good news is that the 30 odd minutes that I do have has terrific interviews from the same people as the Scorsese show with a few additions - I don't remember Manny Roth for example on the show? Regardless it contains DIFFERENT material than the show.
DYLAN: FOUR ONE-HOUR RADIO DOCUMENTARIES (4) Hosted by Patti Smith. These are the terrific and well worn podcasts with extra material I guess.
LIVE AT THE NEWPORT FOLK FESTIVAL RADIO SHOW. This radio show produced in conjunction with the released of the documentary, The Other Side of the Mirror, on the Fest. The usual suspects interviewed by I always enjoy hearing the stories again. I know it ain't true, but I still love to think that Pete Seegar wanted to axe the guitar wires.
THE BEATLES YEARS. THE BEATLES AND BOB DYLAN. EPISODE 4. WESTWOOD ONE. The episode from the radio documentary that covers the relationship between the two. Nice interview clips of Lennon and Dyl.
THE STORY OF POP. EPISODES 20-22. HOSTED BY ALAN FREEMAN. (3) I'd love to hear the rest of this long documentary from BBC Radio, these episodes have parts focused on Dylan. Each an hour long or so and fascinating bringing in the history of the times.
TODD HAYNES INTERVIEW (Terry Gross Interview, Nov 19, 2007) and KEN TUCKER'S COMMENTARY ON DYLAN'S 60TH BIRTHDAY. Off of NPR, nice. Haynes talks about "I'm Not There" film. I didn't like the movie, but he is sincere.
THE EMERGENCE OF DYLAN (2) A Public radio documentary on the rise of our hero.
THE NEW YORKER MAGAZINE DYLAN TRIBUTE. May 19, 2001. "Bringing It All Back Home: A Night of Bob Dylan to Benefit PEN." This is an audience taping of a night that I drove down to attend as well and saw Salmon Rushdie in attendence. Enjoyable tribute with Tracy Chapman, Rickie Lee Jones, Graham Parker & Patti Smith paying homage.
CHRISTOPHER LYDON OPEN SOURCE RADIO SHOWS. Guest Greil Marcus discussing his Like A Rolling Stone book. Fabulous discusion, host gets a lesson.
THE CLASSIC INTERVIEWS VOLUME 3: 1979-1981. Collected interviews - if I can say Bob is an amazing interview.
THE LIFE & TIMES OF BOB DYLAN. John Bauldie interviewed by David Hepworth. Pioneering fan interviewed and represented the clan well.
ROLLING STONE INTERVIEW. With Jann Wenner, four tracks from Jann's tape recorder.
BRIAN HINTON INTERVIEW. Irish BBC radio program - plenty of Dylan talk not too much insight.
THE BLAGGGER'S GUIDE TO BOB DYLAN. Hysterical 29 minute Journey thru Dylan history filled with insider humor. Pythonesque.
BP FALLON "Icons #9" Irish radio show. I guess BP is a musician/industry type of some reknown walking us thru some Bob history. A couple of great personal stories and connections.
THE LYRICS OF BOB DYLAN. BBC program with various talking heads chiming in.
ERNESTO BLADDEN TELEPHONE INTERVIEW. November 21, 1980. 37 Minute interview consisting of a revealing Bob and also some studio tracks to fatten up the show. Bob is clearly thin skinned by the critisism of his previous Gospel tour. The host seems to be a fellow traveler.
ALIAS - THE SIDEMAN STORY. VOLUME 1 - 5 (5) Great series that feature hard to find tracks that Bob played on. Contains all those early session work that we've read about and never heard. Some wasted tracks included (We are the World? - oy), but some neat stuff with a variety of artists.
BOOTLEG SERIES 0: RARE AND UNRELEASED 1959-2019 (3) Very nice career spanning collections of outtakes. Not sure there is anything newly mined, but well curated.
FROM MINNESOTA TO NEW YORK 1958-1961 (4) Superb set of early material, much available on other sets. This is Bucklen, Wallace, Apartment, Belafonte, Carnegie Chapter, Hester, Gleason, Beecher, Brand etc.
A LEGEND IN HIS TIME (3) Career spanning rarities, live tracks and outtakes. Lots of special moments, superb stuff.
FOR SALE OR ON THE SHELF (6) Superb collection of early 60's material, demo's, performances etc.
A LOT OF LOVE (2) Consists of the Dave Herman London/strumming interview and then a strange, freaky WBAI 1986 Dylan call in to Bob Fass's radio show Tre bizarre.
TELEPHONE TAPES This is a strange collection of poor quality - though quite rare - recordings. In fact I have not seen this one on too many lists or have heard some its material. Don't know what the story is but there are some recordings that sound like they recorded off a telephone call with Bob talking and singing. Also contains the London Madhouse performance and the 11/27/64 performance among other things like a wierd interview or two. Alot of this makes for difficult listening as the recording quality at times is quite low.
FROM THE VAULTS. VOLUME ONE. (2) A mind blowing set of songs purported to have been available as downloads from the official Bobdylan.com site. Highly reccomend and perhaps one the best of the live compilations available. Them Columbia vaults hold too much good stuff that needs to be released. So many highlights - so little time.
FROM THE VAULTS. VOLUME 2. (2) More sensational tracks, mostly from 1998 & 1999. Can't wait for the third.
BOBDYLAN.COM - MASTERS. Outstanding (and clean!) cuts from the official site with little overlap with the From The Vault Series. Recommended.
BOBDYLAN.COM FIELD RECORDINGS. SPRING AND SUMMER 1999.
BOBDYLAN.COM USA TOUR. JANUARY - FEBRUARY 1999
B0BDYLAN.COM FIELD RECORDINGS 1998.
BOB DYLAN.COM FIELD RECORDINGS 1992-1997. These discs are among the myriad claiming some connection to the official Columbia site. I do believe that some of the recordings are from other sources. Regardless of source, lots of high sound quality and terrific performances.
THIN MAN'S BOB DYLAN.COM PERFORMANCES (8) From the Thin Man's download site, here's the "complete" official site's releases. Scattered among the 8 discs in no discernible order.
SINGING WITH THE CROW: SPECIAL DUETS. Nice collection of duets with Joan Baez, Pete Segar, Willie Nelson, Bruce Springsteen.
HARD TO FIND. VOLUME ONE. Consists of 21 commercially available, but often difficult or near impossible to find tracks, i.e. The Hearts of Fire Soundtrack. Nice gap filler.
HARD TO FIND. VOLUME TWO. EXTRAOARDINARY PERFORMANCES 1975-1995. Varied collection of live tracks. High quality recordings all. Maybe the weakest of the HTF series, but still a nice disc.
HARD TO FIND. Volume III: EVEN HARDER TO FIND. A cornocopia of goodies with a just a ton of cool stuff. From the 1968 Woody Gutherie Tribute with the Band to the hard to find evening performances from Newport with Joanie. Excellent.
HARD TO FIND. VOLUME IV: HARDEST TO FIND (LOST DIAMONDS 1986-1996). Another strong collections of live tracks - has a number of songs with Van Morrison. There's an incredible version of "One Irish Rover" with Van that I just can't get out of my head.
HARD TO FIND. VOLUME 5: LOST TRACK SEARCHER. Starts off strong with a couple of takes of "Blue Eyed Jane," I actually like the grammy performance of Love Sick (Soy Bomb!) and appreciate having his grammy acceptance speech. Smile Bob Smile.
HARD TO FIND. VOLUME 6: DYLAN'S ZIP GUN. Scraping the HTF barrel a little, manages to throw together a few outtakes and live cuts, much available elsewhere, some not.
HARD TO FIND VOLUME 7: MUSIC FROM THE OUTLAW HIDEOUT. Stars off in HTF tradition with the "Lonesome River" from the Ralph Stanly record and then the Joan Osborne and Bob duet on Chimes of Freedom. After that it contains some rarely performed live tracks from the late 1990's.
GREAT WHITE WONDER (2) The 2 CDr version of the famed boot.
HOLLOW HORN. PERFORMING ARTISTS SERIES. VOLUME TWO. LIKE MARLON BRANDO. (2) A fine collection of early Bob stuff, some 1961 Gaslight, 1961 Carnegie Hall, 1962 Carnegie Hall & then 26 Bonnie Beecher Apartment tunes.
THE GENUINE BOOTLEG SERIES. VOLUME ONE. (3)
THE GENUINE BOOTLEG SERIES. TAKE 2. (4)
THE GENUINE BOOTLEG SERIES. THE THIRD ONE NOW. (3)
THE GENUINE BOOTLEG SERIES. FOURTH TIME AROUND (3)
A career spanning collective of important outtakes, alternative versions, unreleased gems and even some live nuggets. I am missing a couple of this is the g-o-o-d stuff.
TESTAMENT: RARE & UNRELEASED TRACKS, 1961-1992. A varied collection of 17 cuts including a terrific duet with the great John Lee Hooker. Got some fun stage chat throughout. The accompanying booklet has an essay written in German.
ACETATES ON THE TRACKS. VOLUME 1. (1962-1965)
ACETATES ON THE TRACKS. VOLUME 2. (1965-1974)
ACETATES ON THE TRACKS. VOLUME 3. (1974-1984)
ACETATES ON THE TRACKS. VOLUME 4. (1964-1994) Nice series, albeit misnamed, consisting of studio outtakes from each era. Fills in alot of blanks and each disc has some impressive moments.
A LONG, HARD CLIMB. DELUXE EDITION. Outtakes, Alternate Recordings, and Live Performances 1969-1973. Nice fan compilation of material. Great vibe.
DIGNITY. An ecclectic mix of studio outtakes from 1962-1995 - nice to get some Wilbury's stuff.
TV GUIDE. (2). The set contains songs performed on TV from the 1964 Steve Allen Show to Farm Aid & Saturday Night Live. Neat idea thought the sound quality varies.
ONE PUSH OF THE BUTTOM (2) The set primarily concentrates on TV performances in the 1963-1969 period. Excellent.
IF MY THOUGHT DREAMS. Collection of various TV performances, certainly available elsewhere. I have 15 of 17 tracks and no artwork.
PLUGGED, UNPLUGGED & JAMMING (Volume 1 & 2 (Spanish is the Loving Tongue) (2) Poorly titled, but brilliantly compiled set featuring career spanning performances with many he has shared the stage with - Van Morrison, U2, Springsteen, Tom Petty, Joan Baez - some previously available, much not. Far out, man.
DUETS This one collects duets with Van Morrison from 1984-1998. Some good stuff, some not available elsewhere.
NEVER ENDING TOUR COVERS 1988-2000 (9) Courtesy of the Dylan tree this is what you would expect. A wildy varied (and inconsistant) set of songs Dylan has performed of others during NET.
FRIENDS WILL ARRIVE, FRIENDS WILL DISAPPEAR (3) The brilliantly compiled collection of mid concert guest appearances at Dylan shows - everyone from Van Morrison to Joan Baez. Hey, this is my baby, launched on the Dylan tree with 1780 takers. Not bad. I'm a made man, friends.
THINGS HAVE CHANGED - LIVE & UNRELEASED. 4 Song EP (may have been commercially released at some point) contains: "Things," "Highlands," "Make You Feel," & "Can't Wait."
NASHVILLE SESIONS 1969 AND MORE. A recent trove of stuff, my version is missing the middle 5 tracks as they were commercially released I guess. Very handy set.
ROCK AROUND THE WORLD #90 + #91. "ROLLING THUNDER, PARTS 1 & 2" (2) Wonderful radio show with lots of interviews of participants on the greatest rock tour in history.
WAITING FOR A TRAIN ACROSS THE GREEN MOUNTAIN. A collection of pirated tracks from soundtracks and the like - mostly through the 90's. I had a bunch of it, buying the individual discs - shit did I really pay $15 for the soundtrack to Feeling Minnesota? You don't have to with this collection.
PAUL VINCENT INTERVIEW. November 11, 1980. Backstage at the Warfield, a fairly cooperative Bob in tow.
ROLLING THUNDER LOGBOOK. BBC4 Broadcast. This is a dramatic reading of Sam Shepherd's book that was broadcast. Fun.
AS IT SHOULD BE. A little compilation of tracks related to Chuck Berry tunes.
TIME OUT OF THEFT Another late era, pirated collection of one off contributions, sountrack tracks, etc.
'THE ENTERTAINERS" FEATURING ROBERT SHELTON. A radio interview circa 1986/1987 with the famed writer in promotion of his book. He gets it and shall we say he got it before anyone else did. Shelton is a living, breathing part of the early Dylan story.
ROCKLINE PHONE IN. June 17, 1985. This is a phone in show with Bob taking calls promoting the Empire Burlesque album. What a kick.
SHELTER FROM THE STORM COMPILATION (3) Fan compiled collection of 30 different takes of the masterpiece.
TALKING BOB DYLAN BLUES. SEPTEMBER 26, 2005 (2) London. Tribute concert hosted by Billy Bragg featuring Odetta, Martin Carthy, Roy Harper, LIam Clancy, Robyn Hitchcock, Barb Junger, KT Tunstall (fab version of Tangled).
CHABAD TELETHON APPEARANCE. SEPTEMBER 24, 1989. Bob's strange performance along with Harry Dean Stanton and Peter Himmelman. Let me tell ya, these Jews aren't the most inclusive.
16 Years 16 Men All Over the Place in the Long Black Coat. (2) Fan compilation. 21 Takes of that mysterious and smokey tune. Not sure if this is the best song to give the treatment to due to the similarity of arrangement.
MISCELLANEOUS 78'S (2) First the really bad news: I don't have setlist or source info. Good news, its a collection of scratchy 78's of the old country, blues & folk covers that Dylan has done along with extra's like Warren Zevon's appearance on Letterman, Radio Station chat. Sort of an unusual mix tape.
THE ROOTS OF DYLAN: A collection of Recordings from the 20s, 30s and beyond. (2) From the DylanPool, this is a stunning, beautiful collection that should be on all Music Fan's shelves. These are the stone cold originals...songs Bob has covered, references, alluded to, influenced etc.
SONY MUSIC STUDIOS SESSIONS. September 30, 1994. A handful of studio outtakes of old RnB covers.
THE OTHER ANTHOLOGY OF AMERICAN FOLK MUSIC (4) From the Dylan Pool - a superb history lesson of American Music. Immense.

NOW YOUR MOUTH CRIES WOLF
WHERE THE MONKEY DANCES
ONE MORE LAYER OF SKIN
A MAN WITH NO ALIBI
PARK IT WHERE THE SUN DON'T SHINE (2) This is the 8th volume of the Hollow Horn series. The first dedicated to the Wilburys (not bad) and the 2nd disc consists of the mighty demos, June '92 sutdio sessions and couple of other studio outtakes.
This is a career spanning collective works of outtakes. I think quite hand and impressive i've read commentary across the specrum from critisism to lavish praise. Wouldn't have my collection without it.
DYLAN HEARS A WHO! SUEUSS VIA ZIMMERMAN. 7 Dr. Seuss stores set to the Thin Wild Mercury Sound of a Dylan Impersonator. Pretty funny and strange stuff - but oddly it works.

FROM STATESIDE TO SCOTLAND; Another BBC Scotland production this hosted by Pat Kane. It's 29 min program on the familiar story of Bob gets booed while electric, but with the focus on his stop in Scotland. Old friend, Micky Jones shows up along with some scottish folkies. Fun.

BOB DYLAN'S BIG FREEZE. BBC Radio Broadcast on November 25, 2008. Fine little documentary chronicling Bob's first visit to the UK in 1962, his appearance on Madhouse on Castle Street. Good stuff.
BOB DYLAN PODCASTS (2) The mini shows hosted most of the time by Patti Smith. Somewhat ill conceived and choppy. But hey I'll take em.

NASHVILLE CATS - THE MAKING OF BLONDE ON BLONDE. BBC Radio show broadcast, May 16, 2011. Super show with great interviews on the making of the landmark album. While I know so many of the stories to hear them told again is a real pleasure. Certainly a few new stories that I haven't heard before - and I've heard alot.

This was an audio tape posted on You Tube in the Spring of 2013 as his son was mounting a campaign to write a book using various interviews he conducted prior to his father's death. It's a lo fi recording about an hour long, but turning up the volume you can hear it all. Victor was a real character and it's fun to hear him tell a couple of stories. Not sure there is a commercial book here, but would love to hear the other tapes if they ever get posted or circulated.

EXPERIENCE ENSAM. This is the 15 min or so audio feed of the movie click from Dylan's November 23, 2014 Philadelphia 4 song gig for one "lucky" man. For some kind of documentary film.
50TH ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION COPYRIGHT EXTENSION 1963 (4) Thanks Sony, more corporate releases - seems odd, why not release it on a larger commercial basis. Must have a reason.
50th ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION COPYRIGHT EXENSION. 1964 (9) It's an odd release featuring song snippets, live performances, alt takes etc. Some of it I had, others new to me. Hey, bring it all on.
THE NEW BASEMENT TAPES CONCERT. November 13, 2014. Los Angeles, CA. This was a concert by the groups who performed on that project. A poorly recorded audience taping. You get Elvis Costello, Jim James, Rhiannon Giddens etc.
ROLLING STONE MAGAZINE PODCAST. ALBUM FLASHBACK. The Making of Dylan's Empire Burlesque. Includes a great interview with Roy Thomas Baker, the album's producer. A victim of it's time, the album suffered deeply by it's flawed production concept, but we got "Dark Eyes."
MUSIC CARES PERSON OF THE YEAR SPEECH. February 6, 2015. It's 33 minutes long and damn fascinating. The artists brings us a human side shown in such a fascinating way. Glad to get this shaky recording.
NOBEL PRIZE SPEECH. 2017. Amazing.
ABSOLUTELY SWEET MARIE. February 3, 2018, Speicher Lee, Germany. Radio Broadcast of a Germany Dylan inspired Jazz Band, Not bad.
