NOTE: By most reports, the Wild Wolf claim to have accessed master tapes is false; the source for this disc appears to be the bobdylan.com files. Several tracks are misattributed by the CD packaging, including "Visions Of Johanna," "Tears Of
Rage," and "Love Sick." Despite some reports
otherwise, these are audience recordings. An identical (and apparently earlier) semiprofessional release circulates as "The Genuine Internet Series Vol. 1."
Another variant of the same set, the Morose Moose fan project, carries a slightly different sourcelist, which may well be more accurate.
DEEP: A 13-track compilation culled from master tape
sources, as opposed to website downloads. Only 2 performances
overlap "From The Vaults
I," and the mixes make both seem different. Overall, most
of these versions/mixes seem more "true" and robust, with
a smoother, fuller sound. Quality on the tracks here is superb.
Altogether, a mighty fine listen and great cover shot of Bob in the
rmd: The quality is astounding, as are the performances,
An amazing document of Dylan in early 1999. Essential.
