The Alias series of CDs are actually Pirate CDs rather than bootlegs. It is the intent to gather together all released, or partially available tracks from various artists' projects on which Dylan appears. Each CD of the series is limited to only 500 copies. Each copy is stamped with its' individual number. takes a dim view of pirate material, however. While the offering  is for the Dylan fan who doesn't want to have to purchase 9 or 10 different CDs that may only contain very minimal Dylan content, still, the artist offering this material to the public should not have to suffer the potential lost sale that this CD represents. This material is not so obscure as the first volume, and many can be found on line or ordered from local music stores. The one thing that this set has going for it (other than the perfect quality, of course) is the beautiful package, with unique photos and a full color photo CD.
