I don't know what to say about one of the  more famous bootlegs of all time that has not already been said. 1961-1966. The front cover says: "The only definitive collection! 10 record set over 8 hours of music. 134 previously Unreleased tracks" This set has yet to be bettered  in sound quality, even by some of the CDs that contain the same material.

The cover on this great 1985 box set is simple but effective. A grainy looking black and white shot of Bob with all of the songs listed on the front. Each of the 10 LPs have deluxe full printed labels, and come in deluxe anti-static sleeves 

The Label is Tarantula. The folks behind the Label were the best in the business. They released only the highest quality pieces in fantastic major label quality covers.  One trick to spotting their work is by the name of the Label. The name of the Label was different for each artist they released, and had some tie-in with the artist that usually only a hard-core fan would recognize (i.e. Tarantula) 

All albums are pressed on high quality vinyl, and have full printed labels.  All recordings are the best that were known to exist. 
The set came with a 14 page book  that commented on the recordings. The book has many errors. Not only grammatical, but historical as well. It is reproduced, none the less, exactly as written. All information as to venue, dates, etc is taken from the book. This information is accurate as to the package, but for true historical dates and venues, another source should be consulted. One good source is the Unreleased tape guide
