Mono studio recordings. Gathered from different sources, some variation in sound quality (ie tape hiss and/or the tell tale scratchiness of acetate) and volume should be expected. A number of cuts are clipped or incomplete and brief dropouts are not uncommon. Ballad Of Hollis Brown would seem to be from two sources. The splice falls immediately after the line "Your eyes fix on the shotgun that you're holding in your hand." The 10/24/63 Columbia recordings of Eternal Circle and Percy's Song were reportedly lodged with Witmark and so are included here. Witmark EU numbers are taken from Heylin and are provided where known. An excellent overview of vintage Dylan. Dubbed 01/25/97. 1 x 90 min. and 1 x 60 min.
