LIVE WITH THE BAND, AL KOOPER AND MIKE BLOOMFIELD
Document DR 015 [T-115]
NOTE: Cloned and more accurately repackaged as The Session. But to be avoided in either form as a haplessly scrambled, sonically inferior collection of unrelated tracks, all circulating in superior sound in more complete form. The issuer's identification of the Hawks session tracks as coming from 1965 tour rehearsals is ludicrously incorrect.
BIABH: None of this material features Mike
Bloomfield or, in any prominent role, Al Kooper, and less than half of it is live.
rmd: Sound on the Hawks tracks is pretty good. The
Philadelphia tracks sound like they are recordings of a poorly
amplified concert- there is no static, but the music is distorted
and distant, yielding only a fair sound. The jewel box is molded
from blue plastic, and packaging is average. Overall the sound is
quite a step below Record Document's other Dylan CDs. (Anthony
