Junkyard Angel 004 [T-608]

Massey Hall (Toronto, ON); April 19, 1980 (line)

Tracklist: Gotta Serve Somebody, Covenant Woman, When You Gonna Wake Up, Precious Angel, Slow Train, Solid Rock, In The Garden, Cover Down Break Through

NOTE: The first seven tracks on this disc reportedly make up Solid Rock, a live album compiled by Dylan but rejected by Columbia. The final track, incorrectly sourced on the cover slips, comes from the same April 19 performance as the other songs. However, "Cover Down" was apparently not slated for the planned LP.

DEEP: Not much need be said about this terrific sounding set, allegedly the unreleased live album considered for official release way back when. The sound is as close to official release quality as you are likely to hear. The performances of the gospel material are breathtaking, Dylan's singing never better and his conviction awe-inspiring. Essential stuff.

rmd: I think this is Bob's greatest album ever, unreleased or not. Great performance and crystal clear sound.
rmd: Stunning quality "official" live recording that never actually made it to release. The performances are superb and committed.
