NOTE: To be avoided. More than half the tracks on this collection of Dylan/Baez duets are found on official releases (although the Halloween '64 tracks are here drawn from an audience recording). At 11 tracks, it is remarkably short, especially since it omits five circulating Dylan/Baez tracks from 1963-64, most notably from the August 28, 1963 March on Washington -- all included on the fan project from which this travesty was extracted, and which would easily have fit on this disc. The packaging is clumsy and inept; aside from misdating one of the four source recordings and misspelling all of their locations, it manages, not once but twice, to refer to "Joan Beaz" in its largest display type. An abridged, unbalanced butchery of a valuable recent fan project.
