rmd: Also packaged as four single CDs. Each disc sports a different photo of Bob on the front, but minimal additional packaging. While inexpensive, each disc is not really all that full- all of these songs could have been put on just two CDs (and in fact, most of it can be found on two other CD boots). The first two discs duplicate the more common "Gaslight Tapes" CD in the same sound quality. The second two discs duplicate the " Montreal 1962 New York 1961" CD -- but are more complete and in better quality. (Anthony Kopolka)
