BOOTLEG: WALK LIKE A DUCK, SMELL LIKE A SKUNK; Hollow Horn Reference Recording: Studio Outtakes Volume One, 49 outtakes from the first 4 studio albums (2 CD), BOB DYLAN "REFERENCE RECORDING COLLECTOR'S SERIES" on the UK HOLLOW HORN LABEL, The aim of Hollow Horn's Reference Recordings Collection is to provide the collector with a concise and comprehensive library of all the essential, unissued, circulating recordings. As such, the recording collection will be a supplement to the authorized catalog of recordings which, it is assumed, the collector already owns., The focus will be to compile recordings that are listenable and enjoyable, as well as enlightening, informative and complete. The collection will be grouped into a series, with each Volume within a series being issued one at a time., The first series to be issued in the Reference Recording Collection, "Studio Outtakes," aims to bring together recordings made during studio sessions that are not issued on the currently authorized album releases (proper). Outtakes from these sessions have surfaced erratically; coming into 'circulation' via tapes, cassettes, CDs, compilations, etc. This dissipation of the tracks means that any context in which they were recorded is totally lost. Though we can only piece together 'fragments' that are in circulation, assimilating them in this way helps restore context to the recordings; sometimes revealing recording practices and procedures, sometimes revealing the development of a song or album, sometimes revealing cacophony and mayhem....but always revealing., "Walk Like A Duck, Smell Like A Skunk" contains outtakes from the first four acoustic albums. Though most of the outtakes are represented here, there are several 'alternate' versions of some of the outtakes that, due to lack of space, have not been included. These alternate outtakes will, however, be included on the final disk of the series, along with any other 'orphaned' tracks from other disks.
