I’ll be out of town for the next two weeks or so. We’re crossing half the country to visit both sides of the family for the holidays. Before we left I set Mediafire to upload all the shows that I had recently torrented (all five of them) and also converted several others to MP3 which I will upload sometime over the trip. I should have a dozen or so shows posted in that time period.

How awesome am I? Even when I’m gone I find ways to post shows. :)

The only drawback is that I forgot to put the lossless show information on my laptop so for the show info I will have to rely on etree. This should be fine except that a couple of the shows are compilation type deals and I’m not sure I’ll be able to find them. I may just have to download them from my own upload and get it that way. I also won’t be able to convert any of the lossless shows to MP3 until I get back, nor can I tell you what they sound like.

I’ve been collecting bootlegs for nearly fifteen years now. Amazingly it was less than two years ago that I discovered bootleg blogs. In fact it was after I started my own version that I discovered others were doing the same thing. At first it was like discovering gold in your back yard. Then it was like going down a wormhole there were so many different blogs out there.

I downloaded everything. Constantly. Then I filled up my hard drive and realized I needed to stop. I very rarely download anything from a blog anymore. Not only was I running out of room but I knew I wanted to blog things that I had obtained from normal sources. What I mean is that I prefer to link to blogs that have interesting things and not upload them myself. That way I’m fostering the community and not stealing so to speak. Now of course stuff that I already have on disk, and stuff I get in torrents are still circulated in other blogs, but I’m at least not directly ripping them off.

Yes this also means that I rarely actually listen to the stuff I link too. I simply link what looks interesting and make no comment on the quality.

Anyways that being said today I have a couple of shows I downloaded from elsewhere. These didn’t come from blogs so I don’t feel like I’m intruding on somebody’s space. They were found in basically download areas, where someone has uploaded the shows to a site similar to Mediafire and then someone unrelated found the download.

I don’t know if any of that makes sense. I feel a kinship with the other bootleg blogs and I don’t want to upload stuff I downloaded from them, but in this case it didn’t come from a blog but rather a random site that isn’t updated regularly.

Anyways, enjoy the PJ.

Video Bootleg Bonanza: Bob Dylan - Don’t Look Back Outtakes

Download Video: Megaupload

I honestly have no idea where I got this, nor did I even remember having it until a couple of days ago when I found it in one of my bootleg books. At first I assumed it was a typical music bootleg, but when it wouldn’t play I discovered it was in fact video.

A little Google juice turns up information that this is what was leftover from D.A. Pennebaker’s documentary of Dylan’s 1965 tour of Britain. This review says it is mostly for hard core Dylanphiles. Personally I’ve never seen the original documentary and have yet to sit down and watch this. I’m not much for watching music DVDs so I’m not sure I ever will watch this one.

Whatever, download it if you want. I said I was uploading basically everything I have and I will continue to do so. I’m being pretty negative with this, but the little I did watch included some pretty brilliant live footage of Dylan. You can also stream the show here (don’t adjust your volume, the sound kicks out for maybe thirty seconds right at the beginning, its on the download too.)

  • New Repost Policy: With the near constant flux and changes being made by the main file hosting sites I no longer feel any show that I post will be around permanently. Because of this I will no longer be reposting any old show. Once it is gone, it is gone. I am terribly sorry about this, but my time is limited and I simply cannot spend all of it reposting shows.
