A selection of somewhat obscure tracks that are very cool.
“Ranger’s Command,” Gerdes Folk City, NYC, September 29, 1961:
“Going Going Gone” voice and guitar, from Planet Waves sessions:
“Outlaw Blues” voice and guitar, possibly from the January 13, 1965 studio session:
“Mr. Tambourine Man” live, Royal Festival Hall, London, May 17, 1964:
“Red Cadillac and a Black Moustache,” cool cover of the Willie Bea Thompson and Lilian May song that was recorded by Warren Smith among others and appears on the Good Rockin’ Tonight: The Legacy of Sun Records compilation:
“Let’s Keep It Between Us,” San Francisco, Warfield Theater, 1980:

Thank you for these, and many other wonderful tracks you have posted. Particularly enjoyed the beautiful “naked” Going, Going, Gone. My wife was at the 1964 Festival Hall concert so hear Mr Tambourine Man ten months before it was released. Bob stopped his cab when they waved at him after the show. He got out, had a chat and signed their programs. Probably wouldn’t happen today….
That’s so cool — I hope your wife still has the program.
She certainly does, lovingly preserved. It’ll be 50 years old in a few weeks.
That is amazing. I am 18 and I love Bob Dylan. Wish more people my age understood his genius. I am envious that you were able to grow up in that era.
It was a very special time. But there’s great art being made right now by new artists. You just have to dig. They’re not Dylan, but in their own way they’re great. The novelist Elena Ferrante and director Paweł Pawlikowski (“Ida”) and the singer/songwriter Jolie Holland and Kim Gordon, and there are plenty more.
