Bob Dylan The Bootleg Series Vol. 6: Live 1964 - Concert At Philharmonic Hall on Numbered Edition Hybrid 5.0 Multichannel 2 x SACD + 56 Page Booklet
Available In the 5.0 Surround Sound Format for the First Time!
This 1964 concert is the first all acoustic live performance to enter Bob Dylan's discography. This recording certainly has its share of firsts and highlights, including the only known live version of "Spanish Harlem Incident," and the premier of the songs "Gates of Eden" and "If You Gotta Go, Go Now."
This 5.0 Surround Sound mix of Dylan's October 31, 1964 Halloween show at New York's Philharmonic Hall is a complete recording and has never been released on this format until now. This 2CD Audio Fidelity collection presents the entire concert from the original Columbia Records master tapes. The package also contains a 56-page book filled with historical photographs and informative notes.
Here is Dylan as an eager-to-please 23 year old with nothing between him and his audience but a guitar and a harmonica. His voice is in top form throughout the 19 song set and when Joan Baez joins him the voltage only increases. In marked contrast to the tight-lipped living legend of the mid-70s, here is Dylan as entertainer, joking and bantering with the crowd, proving himself to be a masterful performer.
While much has been made of the later electric performance of the 1960s, it is here that you can see just how good Bob Dylan really was at such a young age. He displays all the budding facets of his art up to this time, from the protest songs, to the more introspective material to the radical new directions he was on the verge of going.
