The Gaslight  tape is an absolute 'must have' to any serious collection. It has been available as a quasi-legitimate European LP for many years, in several different packages. BB-g35 is a reproduction of an  LP box set.
 There are tapes that float around that are better quality than the issued pieces. There are a few different CD packages / manufacturers available. As all forms of this recording are very good quality, Don't worry about which package to acquire. Most all have the same material.
* Subsequently released on the official CBS LP
'Bootleg Series Volumes 1-3'.
