    Picked up Bob Dylan's Bootleg Series Vol 5. It's very good, for all you Dylan fans out there. I thought I'd mention that there's a bonus DVD in it (limited edition) with two songs mixed to 5.1, both taken from Bob's lost film Renaldo and Clara. Very neat, indeeeeed!

    Vic, I thought this set wasn't coming out until tomorrow (Tuesday). I guess some stores put it out early. [​IMG] Best Buy advertised it for just $14.99 in the Sunday flier. Circuit City advertised it for $15.99. Great prices on a two-disc set, especially with the DVD.

    And $17.99 at Tower Records!

    I haven't listened to it yet, but I have several bootlegs from this tour, which is among my favorite of all Dylan tours. Possibly my very favorite. Only 65 and 66 really contend for me.

    Listening to it now. I find this leaps and bounds better (to my taste) than Live 1966 (of course they were vastly different times in his career). There are a few tracks on Biograph from this tour (namely Isis and Romance in Durango) and these recordings are much better and the performances much more lively. Now hopefully they'll release a similar compilation of his Fall tour of this year once it's done (if it ever is). It's truly amazing how Bob's orchestrations of his classic songs change over the years, and yet they still remain the same songs. Check out bobdylan.com's RealAudio recordings of the current tour to see what I mean.

    Argh, I need to catch up. I don't have any of the bootleg series. I've seen a box set with the volumes 1-3, I didn't even realise there was a 4. Is there yet another box set with all 4?

    And Bootleg Series Vol. 6 will be released at some point next year. It is going to be the legendary (and much bootlegged) Philharmonic concert from Halloween 1964. An excellent choice for an excellent series of recordings... long may it run! [​IMG]

    I have a promo sampler disc from The Bootleg Series: Volumes 1-3 [Rare & Unreleased] 1961-1991, and it is very good. I never got around to buying the boxed set. Come to think of it, I haven't listened to the sampler in awhile. I should give it a spin. [​IMG]

    This album (Vol 5) is an awful lot of fun. I can't even get to disc 2, cause I keep playing disc 1. The DVD is great as well, I just wish there was more than two songs on it. I've seen Bob a few times in concert and he usually seemed to walk through the show without much excitement. On the Rolling Thunder shows he was alive, with real enthusiasm in his performance. Which is a real joy to hear (and see).

    Do all the discs have the DVD included? I Mentioned to my mom that I want it for xmas; dont want her to get one without the DVD.

    Tower had Dylans 1st, Slow Train & Infidels for $5 each. Easier than recording the lps!
