Simply an incredible release. Capricorn has used a couple black and white period photos that have been digitally colorized to create a classy cartoon look to this release. The back cover is a full color 1965 shot of Bob riding a 500 cc Triumph Tiger. The biggest complaint would be the font used in the typeset. It is too artsy, too small and too thin. Some of it is hard to read. Also there is no venue information listed for the bonus tracks. The material was taken from acetate, but there is little white noise pop to indicate this. The tracks are perfectly quiet. For the most part, the material sounds as if it is the exact mix as on the official release, but the engineer can be heard introducing the songs.  All I Really Want To Do has an extra verse, but the gem here is Mr. Tambourine Man. It is a completely different song than what was released. Your Dylan collection has to include this incredible version. It is drawn out with an entirely different laid back feel and different words. Ramblin' Jack is heard singing along. As for the bonus material, All studio outtake songs are presented in fantastic quality. All I Really Want To Do is a soundboard take. Evidently, since the manufacturer knew the historical data of it, it was listed on the back cover with the acetates rather than under the bonus section.
