The box features 148 tracks in all, with more than 100 of those never previously released. This box comes with a 52-page booklet featuring rare and never-before-seen Rolling Thunder Revue photos and an essay by novelist/musician Wesley Stace.

The previously released The Bootleg Series Volume 5 on vinyl, back in print for the first time since 2002 as a 3LP set with a 64-page booklet.

The 14CD box is tremendous value on Amazon in the UK at just £59 and also very cheap too if you’re in France. Also check out that superb JPC.de pre-order price for the 3LP set, it’s HALF the Amazon UK price.

Initial pressing of the CD box now appears to be sold out across many European sites – hence temporary increasing of prices at Amazon. Good news is that a second pressing is expected from Sony by late July / early August.

Paolo Martinelli

Please do not get me wrong: I bought the limited edition of this, from the official website, with the mimic of the plate that was given to the artist as a pass… probably today just a cheap chinese press, and it is not even numbered… But who cares, it was my choice to but that.

But I am feeling pissed off mostly because everything in BS Vol 5 is included in here, and at that time I did pay a full price that is almost comparable to the one I paid this year.

I can understand that Dylan management is trying to recover from the income loss produced by bootlegs, but, hey, it was not fan fault! If companies would have printed by themselves boots, fan would have bought from them…

Bob Dylan BS has been concentrated mostly (not just, I must admit, but mostly for sure) on publishing what has been sold on the most common bootlegs.

A real fan, like me already has spend twice the money to get the same material, to be loyal to the beloved artist…

But now that I had paid three times for the same songs, and twice to the same account… well, now I feel a little bit betrayed!

Maybe is just me…

but that is the way I feel,

regards,

Paolo

Emilio Lafarga Giribets

55€ at the moment on amazon.de using the 10€ voucher.

Shaun Lee Harris

I ordered the BOB DYLAN ROLLING THUNDER REVUE – 3 LP VINYL SET from JPC for a very good price on pre-sale, it came on Saturday, very good service. It was still sealed, when i opened it it only had 2 LPs in it LP 2 was missing it only had the LP cover but no vinyl and no down load card, I contacted JPC on Saturday but still have not herd from them, has anybody had the same problem?

All the best

Shaun

Shaun Lee Harris

JPC service was very good,i think it is a manufacturing process problem because it was still sealed .

Shaun Lee Harris

Just got a new LP from JPC today 16/07/2019, very good service.

Mark

Mine arrived from Amazon France today. Total cost £55.93.

The Geordie Expat

Thanks to Paul for the heads up on April 30th I ordered the box from Amazon.co.uk shipped to the USA for £50.38 which is approx $63.50. Waiting patiently. . .

Banzaibid

Got same deal. Biggest surprise…..I received it June 13 in US. Fastest delivery from Amazon UK ever!!

Mr. Ska '57

Amazon USA $79.03.

stefano

64,42 now on amazon.it

Fran Maher

Where o where are all the unreleased songs , recorded down the years . I have enough live stuff for the time being . E. G. The Infidels sessions . Let’s see a 10disc boxset of studio recordings 1960 to 2020 . That I’d pay for . I know , some people are never happy . Cheers for all the work Paul . It’s an expensive summer ahead .

CJ Feeney

They are on the Bootleg Series. There was plenty of Infidels material on the vol. 1 to 3 set.

Whitmark Demos; Cutting Edge, Basement Tapes; Another Self Portrait; More Blood, More Tracks; Tell Tale Signs all give comprehensive round ups of significant albums or periods in Dylan’s career.

Buy the ones that you think you need. No Dylan fan can really claim to be hard done by in terms of studio archive material.

David

Amazon France now at Euro 60.48 (Friday, May 3).

Marc

I saw this while I was out of the country and while I don’t have a French Amazon account I figured it was safe to pre-order on US. Price has now dropped quite a bit and I expect it to gain parity with the lowest cost version. This is such an excellent bargain.

Thomas L

You don’t need a French Amazon account. Your usual account is valid and the same for all Amazon sites.

Wilfred

Ordered for €65 incl. shipping (to Netherland) at Amazon.fr. Great value, and really looking forward to this as I simply adore both ‘Desire’ and Bootleg Series 5!

Hoddo

Managed to nab one from Zoom for £53.99 with first order 10% discount first thing today but noticed its no longer for sale.
Guess Amazon France is still available at a v decent price

Geoffrey Kavanagh

I too pre-ordered this set on amazon UK. Paul, do you think they will honour my order (they have not canceled it yet)? Anyone else in the same situation?

Bill

I do hope that there is a realistically priced single, or double disc version. Sometimes less is more. That single disc version of the unreleased “Blood On The Tracks” was really great.

CJ Feeney

The Bootleg Series vol.5: Rolling Thunder Revue (aka Live1975) is a 2 CD summary of this set. It’s reasonably easy to get hold of. The 3 LP vinyl edition above has the same tracklisting.

Jim Wood

Fuming it was on Amazon on CD about an hour ago and come back to order and says unavailable Grrrr

Ian Garrett

I pre-ordered a couple of days ago on Amazon UK, it’s now disappeared!!! Looked on Amazon Fr and ordered it on there.

Geoffrey Kavanagh

It is interesting to note that the CD box set is no longer available from amazon in the UK. Is this perhaps a truly “limited” edition?

Jeff

Thanks for this PAUL!!!! ORDERED 5 copies from France under $60 delivered to the USA when Amazon wants $109!!

HEADS UP TO YOU PAUL AND EVERYONE ELSE WHO IS INTERESTED

The Rolling Stones Rock N Roll Circus is now available for pre-order on Amazon.com for $72.98 with release date of June 7!! It’s a 4 disc set!!

David M

5 copies?

Lenny

Amazon bloody useless for us in Aus yet again! Not on Aus site and none of the others will ship to us. Thank heaven for JPC – 115AUD posted so I’m happy. Thanks Paul.

Jan Burnett

Now ‘only available from 3rd party’.
I wonder if Amazon have discovered a pricing error?

Phil Wilson

If ‘When I Paint My Masterpiece’ and ‘This Land is your Land’ were played at most shows, any idea why they were left off the Bootleg Series Vol. 5?

Phil Wilson

One More Cup of Coffee (Valley Below) – Seacrest Motel Rehearsals is available to stream on Amazon (other platforms are available).

Pablo

Thank you Paul!! Ordered ;)

Larry Davis

WOW, killer deal…ordered from Amazon France, and even tho it went up to 60 Euros and change, the VAT was removed, and with shipping, like $66US!! An utter steal!! Thanks Paul!!

Robert Laversuch

Hi excellent news – ordered. My fave Dylan period, too. Desire is my fave album of his. Sixty pounds for a 14 CD box is a steal.

fan

Next : a bluray box of the complete film reels? O:-)

Paul Simmons

Yes where is BluRay Directors Cut of RENALDO & CLARA
I saw this at Venice California on its brief release.
And of course where is BluRay & cds of NIGHT OF THE HURRICANE MSG
I saw this from behind the stage intimate and amazing

Peter

A lot cheaper than I anticipated
Thanks Paul
June is going to add a lot of weight to my shelves what with this and the Tangerine Dream set !!Hey ho – must be done

Jarmo Keranen

Two years ago i bought The 1966 Live Recordings boxset. The box is still in unwrapped condition. Maybe i buy this box in 2025 when The Rolling Thunder Revue tour is 50 years old!

noyoucmon

I went with Amazon France to Chicago. I’ve got the original vinyl version of Bootleg Vol. 5, but I this bodes well for 6 and beyond being reissued reasonably, as I stopped buying the vinyl with that volume.

James Kane

Ordered. Thanks again Paul. This is an absolute no brainer if ever there was one – 14 CDs for less than sixty quid!! I was expecting over a hundred. Can’t see anything to complain about in this fantastic release. Keep them coming Bob.

Paul Murphy

One hates to be churlish to such a marvellous release, but surely, surely the wonderful, unique performance of ‘Abandoned Love’ from the Bitter End on 03 July warranted inclusion on the ‘Rare Performances’ disc.

Ben Williams

I think the quality is just too bad, but a fine live track that is – maybe they have stuck it on as a secret track…

Golden Age Of Dylan`s Treasure Chest

There is a very high quality recording of `Abandoned Love` available. I`ve heard it and so have many others. Hopefully if the 2nd leg of RTR is represented in a similar box it`ll be included on that. I hope.

Stephen

Perhaps it’s being saved for a Desire Sessions (and related) box down the line.

Darren Linklater

Good value set. Pre ordered today.

I honestly thought that this would be £100 plus with the trend for ever increasing prices.

Hope Mr McCartneys team are taking note…..

Eric Thiessen

Amazon US is the same price as Dylan’s website – they should be lower soon…

Jurg

I wished I was a Bob Dylan devotee, then I could buy every year at least one big box set of music I would cherish.

Stephen

Never too late to start!

Bernie

Thanks so much for the deal alert. Amazon in France will ship it for $100 Canadian all in.

Gary Fowles

Been waiting for the pre-orders for this since it was rumoured a while back. Fantastic price. Really don’t get the grumbling on here. If you don’t like it, don’t buy it. Personally this is one of my favourite Bob periods. I love the Bootleg Series devoted to it, so to get all of this on top of that is a dream come true.

The Golden Age Of Empty Wallets

I agree with you Gary. Anyone moaning about this release are the type of person described by the term ‘miserable gits’. I suggest anyone not happy with this release to seek professional medical help.

For me this is a great period for Dylan music, ‘Blood On The Tracks’, ‘Desire’ the Rolling Thunder Review, which IMHO is his greatest tour, ’75 & ’76.

Thanks for the JPC alert Matthias, ordered the LP BS5 repress and earlier on Amazon UK the 14 CD Box for £54.

June 7th is gonna be a good day with Bob Box and his mate Shakey’s ‘Tuscaloosa’ coming out. The week after their pal Brooooce’s anticipated, by me anyhow ‘Western Skies’. In May there’s the Late Great Ronnie Lane’s box, Big Big Train’s new double LP and The Waterboys newie.

It’s just like 2018 all over again!

Matthias

On JPC Germany, you can get the vinyl version for only 39,99 Euro. That’s a fantastic price!

graeme ewan

JPC keeps advising my postcode is invalid for the UK. Can anyone help?

graeme ewan

ok thanks. not used jpc before. any feedback re cust service etc? cheers.

Adrian Porter

Great prices – thanks Paul and thanks Matthias for the JPC deal….Graeme Ewan, I also had problems trying to enter my UK postcode. It wouldn’t accept it whatever I put in. I got round it by first creating a new account (this accepted the postcode no problem) and then logging in to place the order. Good luck!

Phil Wilson

At Amazon France, you can buy a gift card for 50 euros, and get 5 euros free, so that takes the price (with postage) down to about £50.79

Tony

This will be my first Bob Dylan box set, I used to work night shifts with a Dylan fan who played a bootleg of this non stop, used to drive me potty as the sound was dreadful but the music was something else, be great to hear this, great price.

Jim Breeds

I’m not sure I want that many different recordings of the same songs. A single or double CD containing the best of each song would have been great! Oh well, one more cup of coffee …

Stephen

We already have exactly that in Bootleg Series Vol. 5.

Lowell

Wish the Beatles do something like this for Abbey Road 50th

David M

Huh? Live shows?

Paul Simmons

ABBEY ROAD DELUXE BOX arrives in September Expect at least 2 formats
A double CD Original remixed by Giles Martin with a 2nd CD of alternate takes.
The Deluxe Box will include a large book and a BluRay with the remix in 5.1
There was no Mono version. Four additional cds will include the remix and
an extensive amount of rare alternate takes. Hardcore Beatle fans will already find
a good number of them to be familiar with a definite sonic upgrade.

Henrik Kirkegaard

Incredible how many old live recordings Dylan will realease
Why not any newer live materiel
I simple dont get it
To many boxset From Dylan in my opion
Great artist

Phil Cohen

Why not newer live Dylan material? Perhaps because of what his voice sounds like in his late 70’s. In two more years, Dylan will be 80. Dylan is wise to give the public more vault material from the “good ol’ days”.

Paul Simmons

How about HARD RAIN complete concert BluRay?

Andrew Lindsay

Excellent offer…thanks Paul.

If only Paul McCartney was as fair to his fans…

Steve Anderton

Never bought a Bob Dylan boxset before , but this has so many great songs and it’s reasonably priced so have pre-ordered it !

Gary

How much identifiable Mick Ronson to be heard on all this ?

The Ragman

You can check out Mick Ronson’s contribution on tracks like Isis [Live], Seven Days [Live] on Bootleg Series Vols 1-3, or the 5th volume of the series “Live 1975” and I think he was still in the band for the 1976 leg where the “Hard Rain” live album was recorded.

David

Amazon France totals $66.05 for delivery to the United States. Amazon U.S. price already up to $109,98. At the risk of understatement, thanks for helping me get a bargain.

ruben

I’ve tried the Fr site, but the addressing appears to only have France and Belgium as choices… is there an explicit way to select US addresses?

thank you!

Marc I Federman

I guess this leaves the door open for a 1976 release, now that we have the 75 RTR

Ben Williams

Was expecting this set to be over £100 so I was thrilled to see it at less than £60 on Amazon UK – preordered!

Jim

I was expecting this to be equivalent in£a to the USD price. So that’s a nice surprise. Six eighths of a Bowie album.

paul wren

Triple LP now at £70 but I’ve ordered it anyway. Good news all round for Dylanologists…………..
