October 2006 update report: After an unusually long delay, the Guide has been very extensively updated. Aside from adding entries on hundreds of previously unlisted discs and expanding/revising three times as many current entries, I have begun the process of restoring access to nearly 2000 CD cover graphics which have disappeared from the net in recent years. This update is a first step, restoring no more than 10% of the cover scans. All new entries, as well as all the associated files (including graphics), have been successfully uploaded, and most of the previously unavailable images have been restored. As usual, the URLs for many more "index recordings" -- fan projects including (usually) complete recordings of particular contracts, without bonus tracks, and titles typically listing only the date and/or location of the concert -- have been changed, with the source files moved into the tripod area of the Guide to improve site performance (and file names standardized). This update affects mostly recordings/projects from 1988-1990. This reorganization should continue until virtually all post-1973 "index recordings" are treated uniformly. If you have links on your site to these pages, you will need to update the links. I apologize for the inconvenience.
If you have a scan that you don't see here, please drop me a line at the address listed here, or email the files directly to email@example.com.
Your comments and suggestions are appreciated.
Given the heavy usage of the Guide, I expect the host site's download limits to be triggered from time to time.
Please note that all images used on this site are for the purposes of review and comment, and therefore, according to counsel, are within the "fair use" provisions of copyright law. And, as per the recent outcome of Prince's lawsuit against a fan publication, this noncommercial project does not infringe on the artist's intellectual property rights.
As many of the comments included here indicate, I do not support commercial bootlegging and will not provide assistance in obtaining commercial bootlegs. All of the unreleased material described in the Guide can be obtained through noncommercial channels, through the sorts of activities that Bob Dylan, like so many other artists, has been generous enough to tolerate.
Please note that due to the heavy volume of my correspondence you may not receive an immediate (or even a reasonably prompt) reply.
