  1. Philip Birtwistle says:

    Saw on the Steve Hoffman Forum that some people got a booklet that wasn’t even glued in the first place, just a collection of loose leaves in the cover……….

  2. CJ Feeney says:

    Re: the CD booklet. Amazon reviewers are commenting that it falls apartquickly. It also looks the same as the booklet in the 2cd set.

    Can anyone verify on quality and content?

    • Mark W says:

      The booklet looks to be bound the same way as the booklet in the original bootleg series 2cd set. That one is still intact in my copy. The two booklets are totally different in content and are also different in size; the new one is square while the original one from the 2cd set is the same height but wider by around 15mm.

  3. Philip Birtwistle says:

    If you look inside the cover for the Falmouth rehearsals, the map printed there is of Falmouth in Cornwall!!! Jeff Rosen messing with us or a genuine cock up???

  4. Mark says:

    I found that Amazon music (streaming) had what looked like a complete show from 11/11/75 (including the rest of the revue) and Wolfgang’s Vault has that show plus a couple of others some complete and some not, the main one being the 8/12/75 at MSG.

  5. Marc Sutton says:

    I do have to say that I received the vinyl box set yesterday and played it today. The pressing is fantastic without any surface noise and the booklet is magnificent!!! Well worth the money in my humble opinion. I watched the Rolling Thunder Revue film on Netflix last night as well and found it fascinating, especially the live performances with Dylan in superb vocal form throughout. Well worth a watch.

    • Wayne Olsen says:

      I agree about the Netflix special. I wasn’t expecting to see early Patti Smith. I better get this!

  6. Jim says:

    I’ve listed to the rehearsals and first concert discs. I’m going to have to take care and space these out because I don’t want to get Rolling Thunder fatigue. Especially since I also watched the film the other night which is superb but should be taken with several buckets of salt.

  7. Peter Stanton says:

    Ordered the CD box from Amazon France ages ago. I see that there are 2 additional small payments, non sterling purchase fee £1.22 and a non sterling transfer fee £1.50. I have bought many items from Amazons France, Germany, Italy etc and don’t recall these before.

    Is it just my bank deciding to charge me?

    • Mark says:

      Peter – I didn’t get charged anything additional. The box arrived the day after release.

    • Alan says:

      Sounds like you paid in Euros and didn’t choose the £ option at checkout.

      • Peter Stanton says:

        Thanks and well spotted Alan. The conversion option would not work, but I went ahead anyway not realising that there was a difference .

        We live and learn.

        Pete

    • Phil Wilson says:

      If you get a Halifax Clarity card, or Nationwide credit card, they don’t charge foreign transaction fees (and Halifax tends to always have the best exchange rate). I have used these on holiday and for foreign transactions for years.

  8. RJS says:

    The CD box set is a very nice indeed. Small and compact, it looks (and sounds!) fabulous.

  9. Simonf says:

    Good video Paul. I got my box last Friday and it’s great. I never bothered with the original Bootleg #5 set as I always thought that someday something bigger and better would come along and since you get all 22 tracks from #5 on the new box it’s looks like I’ve made a nice little saving!
    Anyone know when the Martin Scorsese film of this tour is being released on DVD/Blu Ray for those of us who do not have Netflix?

    • David M says:

      You can get a free subscription for a month of Netflix. Not sure why anybody would not do this while waiting for a physical product that may not arrive in years (if it does at all). And there’s plenty of other stuff worth watching.

  10. Danny says:

    Nice video. It can be hard to get the CD´s in and out of this type of cardboard sleeves without scratching them. I thought people who still buy CD´s care about this stuff? The vinyl box looks lovely with nice polylined inner sleeves to protect the records. I will go for the vinyl…

    • David M says:

      But the vinyl has about 15% of the content of the CDs! In my experience they do not scratch that easily and unlike vinyl will normally play perfectly anyway. One can be a little too anal about these things and, after all, it is the music that matters the most, isn’t it!

    • Dean says:

      Simply buy some poly liners for your CD’s…….
