From: Alan Fraser, Subject: New early versions of Mr Tambourine Man and Eternal Circle, I've been very fortunate to receive a copy of a mystery acetate of, "live" Dylan performances from Fantasy Records of Berkeley, CA., The purchaser of this acetate has been in contact with Fantasy Records, and they have confirmed that the acetate is genuine, and it was, created from a tape between 1972 and 1980 by Ralph Gleason, who was, then co-owner of Fantasy. The acetate was mastered by Fantasy's chief, mastering engineer, David Turner. Fantasy also said they have the, original tape in their vaults, along with a recording of Bob's show at, Berkeley Community Theater, 22 Feb 1964. Ralph Gleason attended that, concert and reviewed it for the "San Francisco Chronicle". We now know, he recorded it too!, Of special interest on the acetate are two "new" recordings of Mr., Tambourine Man and Eternal Circle!, Mr Tambourine Man - unknown live recording. Has the line "hidden, leaves" instead of "frozen leaves". Bob said in an interview that this, song was written on leaving New Orleans, which was 12 Feb 1964. The, first known version up to now is the Eric von Schmidt home recording, which is probably from late April 1964, but which this must predate., The Jun 1964 Witmark demo has "frozen leaves"., Eternal Circle - unknown live recording, dedicated by Bob to, "...anybody who plays an instrument. It's not so easy". The opening, line is "I strummed" instead of "I sang" No live recording of this, song has surfaced till now., Songs known to have been performed at Berkeley, 22 Feb 1964, include:, One Too Many Mornings, Restless Farewell, North Country Blues, Only A, Pawn In Their Game, Who Killed Davey Moore, The Walls Of Red Wing, Eternal Circle and Chimes Of Freedom, plus With God On Our Side and, Blowin' In The Wind with Joan. Not Mr. Tambourine Man, though... You'd, think Ralph would have mentioned Mr Tambourine Man if it had been, played! However, Eternal Circle could indeed be from Berkeley. When, Mr. Tambourine Man is from can only be speculated. Two songs on this, acetate are known studio recordings with fake applause added, and it, may not therefore be a live recording - opinions wanted.
