compilation spanning from 1964-2001 that documents guest appearances at Dylan shows. This wonderful and diverse set comes to us from Larry Fishman's hard work. He has really put together an incredible set of music. Of course the quality of the sound, while consistently high, does fluctuate. For the most part; however, it is outstanding., From Larry..., "I researched and spent some time on Olof's pages and then cross referenced though my collection to come up with, what I think, is a pretty amazing group of material., As I was working on this, I focused my attention on special guests/unannounced/surprise appearances at concerts. Hence I eliminated studio stuff entirely - frankly there are plenty of good collections of that anyway. I wanted some clear continuity throughout so I decided to eliminate the tours backed by established bands: The Dead, the Band & Tom Petty., What I wanted to do was to capture those moments when the audience was given a surprise treat (it is for that reason I decided to also not include a Paul Simon duet as that was on the menu for that tour) - I have personally loved those moments whether they be at Dylan or some other concert. One of the performances I included was the 1-24-98 Van Morrison performance in Boston which I attended. What you can't see when listening to "Knockin on Heaven's Door" are the roadies scrambling around the stage setting up a mike and equipment for Van. We are all exploding while it was going on and listening to the song again you can hear the crowd erupt a few times in anticipation and then midway through the song when Van appears. Its frankly a mess of a song with the lyics stretched out - but oh fun., What interests me is that messy chemistry of another artist trying mesh or duet with Zim. And then the excitement that it brings to the audience and to the art -- how it reinterprets the song. It ain't easy - sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't- I imagine there is mighty little rehearsal, but that what appeals to me. (I did read Sheryl Crow in an interview where Dylan forced her to sing all of the lyrics to Highway 61 before he would bring her on stage). I didn't want to include, scheduled joint appearances. As much as I enjoy those, they are slicker, staged more coordinated affairs and don't have that manic energy or charisma that a live concert has., Another thing I wanted was to make this whole thing listenable - first in sound quality and then in variation of material. Jeez, I could have made an entire disc out of Rainy Day Womens & I Shall Be Releaseds. The vast majority of the listed songs are in excellent sound.", Extra Information, Artwork to come..., Tree Type: audio, Sign-up Dates: CLOSED!, Disc Lengths: Three 80 min discs
