rmd: Packaged in a glossy folding cardboard sleeve with photographs from the first half of Bob's career, as well as a booklet that gives details of the tracks and a piece by Clinton Heylin about the official Bootleg Series 1-3. Many of the tracks are already circulating. The package is very well produced and presented. It is much less convenient to handle than Great Dane's You Don't Know Me, but contains a much more representative sample of Dylan's career. (Clive Barrett)

NOTE: The 1999 Scorpio reissue of the set includes a slightly revamped booklet.
