Some famous early material comprise this Label's sophomore Dylan issue. All material except Carnegie are soundboard recordings. Some better than others. The Bear is very nice. Arguably the best performance ever of 
'With God On Our Side' (minus the last verse)
(1) Fair to good both in quality & performance
Gerde's: Very nice. Upfront and strong.
Carnegie: Poor audience recording
The aesthetics are simplistic and the packaging is minimal, although the cover photo is nice.
