Bob Dylan / The 1966 Live Recordings / massive 36-disc box set

1966live

Sony are to release, The 1966 Live Recordings, a 36-disc Bob Dylan box set that will contain every known recording from his legendary 1966 tour.

These recordings are issued here officially from the best available sources (soundboard, CBS Recordings, audience recording). With the exception of the Manchester concert (May 17, 1966) released as The Bootleg Series Vol. 4 in 1998, a pair of songs appearing on the 1985 Biograph compilation and a smattering of others, the overwhelming majority of tracks and performances on The 1966 Live Recordings are previously unreleased in any format – official or bootlegged – and are being made available now for the very first time.

Liner notes have been provided by Clinton Heylin, and each individual CD is housed in a custom sleeve featuring stills from colour film shot by D.A. Pennebaker (see image above).

I have it under good authority that these boxes will be very limited, so if you’re genuinely interested then best advice is don’t hang around and get your (UK) pre-order in or US link is now live.

Discs 30 and 31 will also be issued as a 2LP vinyl set called The Real Royal Albert Hall 1966 Concert (it’s on 2CD as well). The title refers to the fact that for decades, Dylan’s performance in Manchester was incorrectly labeled, ‘The Royal Albert Hall Concert’. Now, for the first time, the REAL Royal Albert Hall concert (originally recorded by CBS Records) is finally being released.

The 1966 Live Recordings will be issued on 11 November 2016. The 2CD version of The Real Albert Hall 1966 Concert comes out on the same day with the vinyl version of that release to follow on 26 November 2016.

There seems to be a vinyl pressing of the Sydney show (opening show of the tour) on the way – at least for the Australian market: https://www.jbhifi.com.au/music/Whats-Hot/folk-rock/bob-dylan-live-in-sydney-1966-vinyl/327304/

Shane

I’m no fan at all of his music but I just wanted to ask, 36 CDs of one tour? How did it happen that they ever recorded so much? I mean, by today’s standards I can totally see it, but back then? Who decided to record so much? What was the intention?

Klaus

I suppose that Dylan’s sound engineer originally comes from the 22nd century and went back to 1966 with his Delorean because he of course knew how many people would be grateful to spend 100 GBP/EUR/USD/fill in any currency you like for a box set of this… Hold your breath: At around 2025 a massive 88CD (or whatever will be used to sell music then)-set of all the gigs from Lady Gaga’s infamous “Artpop” world tour will be released (price tba, but don’t expect it to be less than a 1000 in whatever currency).

phantomengineer

The vast majority was recorded by film-makers for potential use as the soundtrack to a 1966 ‘tour film’, replicating the 1965 tour film’s release of ‘Don’t Look Back’. With the 1966 stuff though, very little was ultimately used in the film that eventually resulted, ‘Eat the Document’, which to this day has only had limited cinema showings, and never had an official, commercial video or DVD release. We can only but hope on that one!
A few shows were recorded by CBS on multi-track, presumably for potential use as a live album, as was the case with various shows in both 1963 and 1964 (which also were never released at the time), and which are only now seeing the official light of day in the (if but very limited) so called Copyright Extension releases which Dylan’s management are generating for release by what is now Sony.
Thirty-one of the thirty-six CDs, therefore, should be in excellent quality, and as I said in an earlier posting, despite the use of the same set list for virtually every show, should reveal the differences and nuances night to night in Dylan’s performances, unlike those of modern day artists replicating their albums note for note, solo by solo.

B_Mag44

Amazon Prime price is $106 (US$) with free shipping. That’s $3.50 per disc for the 30 prefessionally recorded CDs. I’m not going to include what will likely be abysmal sound quality of the 6CDs of audience recordings that make up the tail end of the set. They should have included the Fall 1965 Hollywood Bowl show, which circulates in excellent soundboard quality and includes rare live outings of “Tombstone Blues” and “From A Buick 6,” neither of which appears on the box set. The setlists do indeed give new meaning to REPETITION but for the price you can’t go wrong.

Phil Wilson

Noticed the release date for the Dylan box is now 18th November in France but still showing as 11th in UK, might be a nervous wait for those who have cancelled their UK order

L Lawrie

It was briefly at £99.99 at Amazon.co.uk last night. So this should be the price we’ll be charged.

Steve

Wow! what a mammoth box set ! Incredible. Never thought I’d ever see this released ? I think I’ll be getting the 2-CD set of this though.

Gabriele

I already have bootlegs from all the shows, but this ain’t too expensive, so I think I’ll get it!
But pay attention, ‘coz some shows are poorly recorded.

Mike

Zoom have it (they are owned by the record company) at £99.99 and 10% off for new customers, so just under £90

https://www.zoom.co.uk/product/the_1966_live_recordings_bob_dylan_box_set_cd

RJSWinchester

It’s back on amazon.co.uk again.

AFGreenwood

I’ve ordered it from Amazon.fr just in case. it is about £103 there unless Sterling collapses further!

[…] the six-LP 40th anniversary of The Band‘s The Last Waltz and maybe even Bob Dylan‘s 1966 Live Recordings (although in the UK that is already very hard to get hold […]

GHB

I hadn’t thought about the Bootleg Series question (as to why this isn’t part of that series) – certainly (for the ‘full’ 36CD set anyway) the physical format is different (box, paper sleeves compared to the 7″ format with hardback book used in the preceding four Bootleg Series sets), but this could have been got around by their designers I’m sure. Add to this the limited nature of the release (which wasn’t the case for previous Bootleg Series ‘full’ sets except the [very expensive] 18CD Cutting Edge set) …. interesting …. can’t imagine this means an announcement for the next in the official bootleg series in November this year, though with Sony who knows. Wouldn’t be good for the wallet mind to have two in a two months!

John Ireland

Just got an email from Spin CDs in Newcastle. Now advertising at £139 instead of £99.99. Clicking on the link they are indicating that the UK allocation for this set is now sold out and the more expensive set is U.S. Looks like Sony have either underestimated demand or it’s a heavily restricted copyright extension exercise. I’m puzzled why it isn’t part of The Bootleg Series.

Rare Glam

It’ still on HMV for £99.99

Mark

Is that an article about Scott Walker on the cover of the box set? Now THAT’s cool.
PS my uncle was at the Melbourne gig, one of the earliest in this set.

noyoucmon

Paul, do you have any intel on why this isn’t part of the Bootleg Series? Apologies if I missed something in the comments.

J

Paul
Thank you for the tip. I just purchased on amazon USA and it gave me an order #. Oddly the page said there was only one (1) available. I changed it to two (2) and it charged about $340 and I got an order number. Hopefull!!!
Oh by the way, for people who think this it is to many cds just play one a week and it just 36 weeks you will have heard them all.
Cheers
J

Eamonn

Like Sunday Mass! I’m looking forward to hearing these shows, I’ve only heard Sydney,acoustic Dublin and Manchester already, can anyone confirm how many (if any) have never been available before on boots?

Ronnie

We are thrilled to announce Bob Dylan: The 1966 Live Recordings, a new boxset that will contain every known live recording from the legendary 1966 tour with (what became known as)The Band.

The overwhelming majority of tracks and performances on Bob Dylan: The 1966 Live Recordings are previously unreleased in any format -official or bootlegged and are being made available now for the very first time.

Liner notes have been provided by Clinton Heylin. Each individual CD is housed n a custom sleeve featuring stills from colourfilm shot by D.A.Pennebaker, who’s footage from Dylan’s 1965 and 1966 tours became the cinemaverite classics Don’t Look Back and Eat The Document.

Looking forward :) !

GHB

This has always been badged as limited, and while I appreciate this is a (very very!) loosely used term in the music sales business, even some of the independents who specialise in Dylan (for example badlands.co.uk and bobdylanisis.com) are now showing this as unavailable/out of stock (and these folk often get good [preferential?] stock of limited items) …. while Sony may (?) respond to demand this actually looks like, certainly at present, it is indeed limited …. interesting …..

Gavin

Unavailable on Amazon at moment

Randy Layton

well, I keep getting this. Just now: The 1966 Live Recordings Box set
Bob Dylan (Performer) Format: Audio CD
#1 Best Sellerin Box Sets
Currently unavailable.
We don’t know when or if this item will be back in stock.

MikeH

My logic is that if it is limited to a couple of hundred copies as the previous one then why put the weight of Legacy behind it – it will sell out without any effort.

ISIS say it is not limited – and they are usually right.

RJSWinchester

It’s back on sale on amazon.co.uk and it’s also for sale on amazon.com. Yesterday it was at No.1 in the amazon.co.uk sales chart for music (not just box sets). If it is limited edition, it’s in the thousands or tens of thousands of copies produced. Very good value for money though – looks like a nicely produced product (i.e. no overly excessive packaging) and similar in style to the Complete Bob Dylan box set from a couple of years ago. I tried to resist but…

Andrea

This is obviously a copyright renewal clearance as others have already said. The price is interesting, but as much as I love Dylan, the repetition of material is discouraging. Too much of a good thing, to be exact 19-20 times a good thing (19 Tambourines, 19 Johannas, 19 Babies blue, 20 Pill Box Hats…).

I also have some doubts about the audio quality, being soundboard tapes or audience recording, I don’t see myself listening to so many repetitions if they don’t at least have a fantastic audio.

With so many great music being release this autumn, this is something I won’t be purchasing any time soon…

Howie

People complaining about not being able to sit through 36 CDs of basically the same tracks should try getting through The Beatles 72 CD Let it Be Day by Day series. I jumped ship at CD 4. At least there’s no chance of that getting an official release.

Randy Layton

I have that too, never got close. Imgaine being the beatles going through that. miserable.

Dougie Adam

The difference being DYlan and the Band live in 1966 were consistently good… I had a few Let It Be outtakes CDs and found them to be boring… and the bleeps from the camera synch signal irritating on top of the Twickenham sessions not really having many great performances to listen to, just hours of rehearsals, run throughs etc and lots and lots of chat.

MikeH

Don’t panic! From http://www.bobdylanisis.com.

“We don’t have a firm price from Sony yet but the box is likely to retail for around £105.00. The firm price and ordering details will follow soon. Please be aware that this is not a numbered/limited edition.”

And given that Legacy are promoting this on FB I don’t see how it can be that limited – why bother pushing it if that is the case……

tyrone

A very good price for 36 CD’s – although I suspect 2 shows would have filled 1 CD

Cheers Paul.

simon taylor

I posted the comments about this being potentially limited availability over on the Steve Hoffman forum and received a pretty much universal response that this was not the case. Unless there is evidence of it being limited I’d assume we can expect this to be available on amazon.uk again soon.

simon taylor

Paul – can you advise where your information on limited availability is coming from? I don’t suggest you are wrong, or indeed that the Hoffmanites are also wrong in suggesting that this release will be plentiful, just would like to understand as don’t think you have confirmed. Thanks.

Tim H

Amazon in the UK are still selling it.

Dougie Adam

And to add to Paul’s comments, some of the larger disc Bootleg Series releases have been limited in quantity, particularly the 18 disc Cutting Edge version, followed by the 1965 live shows (freebie to those who paid for 18 disc 1965/6 studio recordings).

I would imagine that with the Manchester show already released on volume 4, that Sony will reckon the most sales will go to the 2 disc REAL RAH concert as many people buying that could already have the Manchester version and the jump from a 2 disc version up to 36 disc with no 6 disc option will mean even though the 36 disc option is at a bargain price not many will make the time to listen to all the discs well.

Stevieb

What, no soundchecks included!

Mark Phillips

Frustrating to miss out on Amazon UK. Any idea if these will be all mono or if some will be stereo?

Philip Cohen

4 of them were recorded on multitrack(albeit 3-track) and may be presented in stereo. Those are Sheffield, Manchester & the two London shows. All of the others are definitely in mono.

Jhon

Sorry, who is really listening to all that???

ANDREW R.

Amazon uk link live again,ordered, but will they fufil? or cancel? white knuckle time till November
methinks!

Gav

Just ordered in uk via badlands online

Roberto

Incredible.
One of the first live boot cds I bought was the ‘Albert Hall’ show – it was copied from a scratchy vinyl boot. I would later rebuy that show multiple times until it was officially released. This show is one of my all time favorites and I’ll pick up anything released related to it. The Dylan sets are the finest

Spencer

Paul,
Thanks for the heads up on this. Looks great. Just pre-ordered it on Amazon USA. Can’t wait.

Phantom Stranger

I’d like to believe that Sony doesn’t limit this set. I had to pass on the 18-CD Cutting Edge set due to price but 1966 is a great value.

Just seen this, a bit late I know. Immediately concerned as a new Dylan release appears to be sold out but then checking the tracklisting the words “audience recording/fragment/incomplete” appear too often. Plus the price too high for bootleg material. I can understand why they’ve done this but i’ll settle for the double vinyl version for £18.30 plus postage. Will settle for this.

bootlegs are often more expensive than professional recordings sold by the official record company

Got in there after about 12 attempts – at 20.58 GMT. Kept saying only available from other sellers and then there was nothing behind the other sellers link.

Thanks Paul.

This is what my wife envisions the soundtrack to Hell to be like.

Ordered for total of 91 GBP including postage (no VAT for us Americans), or about $120 US. Pretty good deal!

as long as “bootleg series vol4” is overpriced on vinyl,
this is a VERY GOOD opportunity to get a gig on vinyl from this tour for a HONEST price
(as long as discogs b***ards don’t buy all the stock to re-sell it 10x the price)

Of course, I ordered it. I prefer that Sony issue this material to the general public, and at a very reasonable price(which they will), rather than issue a limited edition of 400 CD-R sets or 1000 vinyl sets. With no reasonable chance of obtaining those scarce sets, I found “other” methods of obtaining the music. But if Sony were to have a change of heart and offer those “50th Anniversary Collection” sets on a widely available CD release, attractively packaged and with liner notes…..I’d buy them.

Yup I heard similarly so don’t um and ah too much or you’ll miss out

Christian Fex

WTF? At least it’s not crackling vinyl ;-)

Just been to Amazon UK (17:58pm) and the full box set is still up there for pre-order.

Holy crap.

I slavishly collected the bootlegs but this promises to be fabulous. Completely unexpected too… One of the few occasions where I think I could quite merrily listen to the same set played over and over (and over) again.

It’s back up again on Amazon UK btw.

ANDREW R.

Amazon have it as “currently unavailable” dont know when or if? Sold out on pre-order already?
Paul please clarify. Thanks
