Bob's Boots ref  #   BB-e02

Tony Glover recorded this famous tape in Bonnie Beecher's apartment three days before the Christmas of 1961. The recording was traded among a few fans shortly after, and has been in relatively wide circulation since 1969. It was actually the first bootleg ever produced. It was released on an untitled 2 LP set in 1969, and became known as 'Great White Wonder'. It has been available under various titles a countless number of times in the decades that followed. The quality has generally been very good. It is an essential recording to even the smallest collection. To date, only 'Hard Times In New York Town' has seen official release on 'Bootleg Vol 1-3'.
