The set includes "Ten Million In A Week," [Volume 1]; "Ten Thousand For A Tape," [Volume 2]; "Do It The Old Way," [Volume 3)]; and "Columbia Discovered," [Volume 4]. It omits "I Can't Play Out Of Tune," [Volume 5, Minnesota Hotel Tape.] As on the original fan set, material has been edited out of the First and Second MacKenzie Tapes., DEEP: An archival collection of mostly scarce and elusive early recordings of Dylan, from the 1958 Bucklen tape to the full Feb '65 Les Crane TV show. Much of this material is new to silver disk and is presented in the best circulating quality. "Best" in some cases is not optimum; the nature of some of the home recordings and the technology used to record it was, by today's standards, crude. On the other hand, I would not characterize some of the "archival" material unlistenable by any means.... only challenging. As you can see from the track listing, the historical importance of the material cannot be overstated. If Dylan were a tree, these would be the roots. From all standpoints - fan, collector, music lover - an essential and enlightening look into Dylan's ground floor roots. Originally circulated as a CDR collection, this version has reportedly been remastered and cleaned it up a bit, with very attractive packaging., rmd: Virtually all of this material is low-fidelity, and some is barely listenable at best., ICE: An overview of the early Dylan, starting with the 1958 Bucklen tape and including generous chunks of well-known early recordings. None of the material will be new to serious fans, but this is a one-stop source for much of the surviving "pre- Columbian" music. A booklet and liner notes would have been nice, though., ====================, Tracks:, Disc one, John Bucklen Tape:, Friendship Music, Little Richard, Johnny Cash, A Good Place To Leave, Best Kind Of Music, Talent Show/Buzz Buzz Buzz, Jenny /Ten Million In A Week, Scotty Moore, Blue Moon, Elvis Presley, Bass Player, Echo, Underground Folk Music, Bob Dillon, Minnesota Party Tape:, Red Rosey Bush (Trad.), Johnny I Hardly Knew You (Trad.), Jesus Christ (Woody Guthrie), Streets Of Glory (Trad.), KC Moan (1927 Memphis Jug Band), Blue Yodel #8 (Jimmie Rodgers), Roving Gambler (Trad.), Talking Columbia (Woody Guthrie), Talking Merchant Marine (Woody Guthrie), Talking Hugh Brown, Talking Lobbyist, Gerdes Folk City:, San Francisco Bay Blues (Jesse Fuller), Great Divide (Woody Guthrie), Billy James interview excerpts:, Interview, Cynthia Gooding's Apartment Tape:, Ballad Of Donald White, Chatter, Wichita (Going To Louisiana), Chatter / Tuning, Acne (Eric von Schmidt), Chatter, Rocks And Gravel, Long Time Man, Ranger's Command (Woody Guthrie), Madhouse On Castle Street:, Blowin' In The Wind, Ballad Of The Gliding Swan, Disc two, Karen Wallace Tapes:, The Two Sisters, Rising Sun Comment, Pastures Of Plenty (Woody Guthrie), Blue Yodel #8 (Muleskinner Blues) (Jimmie Rodgers), Payday At Coal Creek, Karen Wallace, Karen Wallace Tape Excerpts:, [all songs are fragmented excerpts], One Eyed Jacks, Go Down You Murderers, This Land Is Your Land (Woody Guthrie), Rockabye My Sara Jane, Nobody Knows You ..., Great Historical Bum, Mary Ann, Sinner Man, Abner Young, Blue Yodel #8 (Muleskinner Blues) (Jimmie Rodgers), One Eyed Jacks, Columbus Stockade Blues, Go Down You Murderers, This Land Is Your Land (Woody Guthrie), Karen Wallace Armpit Tape:, Gotta Travel On, Roving Gambler, The Two Sisters, Go Away From My Window, Rockabye My Sara Jane, Nobody Knows You..., Great Historical Bum, Mary Ann, Every Night When The Sun Goes Down, Sinner Man, Abner Young, 900 Miles, Blue Yodel #8 (Muleskinner Blues) (Jimmie Rodgers), One Eyed Jacks, Columbus Stockade Blues, Payday At Coal Creek, Interview with Karen and Terri Wallace, Disc three, First McKenzie Tape:, Hard Times In New York Town, Wayfaring Stranger (Trad.), Long Time Man Feel Bad (Trad.), Lonesome Whistle Blues (Hank Williams), Baby Of Mine, Baby Let Me Follow You Down (von Schmidt), San Francisco Bay Blues (Jesse Fuller), You're No Good (Jesse Fuller), House Of The Rising Sun (Trad.), instrumental, Second McKenzie Tape:, Rollin' In My Sweet Baby's Arms (Trad.), Bells Of Rhymney (Davies / Seeger), Come All Ye Fair And Tender Ladies (Trad.), Rollin' In My Sweet Baby's Arms (Trad.), Bells Of Rhymney (Davies / Seeger), Highway 51 (Curtis Jones), This Land Is Your Land (Woody Guthrie), Third McKenzie Tape:, Instrumental, See That My Grave Is Kept Clean (Jefferson), Ballad Of Donald White, Hard Rain, James Alley Blues (Dick Brown), I Rode Out One Morning, instrumental, Don't Think Twice, instrumental, Long Time Gone, Only A Hobo, House Of The Rising Sun, Cocaine (Inst.), Disc four, Indian Neck Folk Festival:, Talking Columbia (Woody Guthrie), Hangknot Slipknot (Woody Guthrie), Talking Fish Blues (Woody Guthrie), Oscar Brand's Folk Song Festival:, Sally Gal, Girl I Left Behind, Oscar Brand Show:, Intro, Girl Of The North Country, Only A Hobo, Steve Allen TV show:, Intro/ Interview, Lonesome Death Of Hattie Carroll, Les Crane Show:, Intro, It's All Over Now Baby Blue, Interview, It's Alright Ma (I'm Only Bleeding), ===, source:, Disc one, John Bucklen Tape, Hibbing, MN c.1958, Minnesota Party Tape, Minneapolis Sept. 1960, Gerdes Folk City, NY September 29, 1961, Billy James Interview, NY CBS tape Fall 1961, Cynthia Gooding NY Apartment Tape March 1962, Madhouse On Castle Street, London, UK December 30, 1962 Broadcast in the TV play Jan 12 1963, Disc two, Karen Wallace Tapes, St. Paul, MN May 1960, Disc three, Tapes Recorded at the home of Eve & Mac McKenzie, First McKenzie Tape NY November 23, 1961, Second McKenzie Tape NY December 4, 1961, Third McKenzie Tape NY April 12, 1963, Disc three, Indian Neck Folk Festival, Branford, CT May 6, 1961, Oscar Brand Festival WNYC NY October 29, 1961, Oscar Brand Show WNYC NY March 1963, Steve Allen TV show LA, CA February 25, 1964, Les Crane Show WABC-TV/NY February 17, 1965, Manufacturer / Catalog No., Scouser /, Dandelion / 075/076/077/078, Released:, 2000;
