Crash on the Levee (Bob Dylan)
Comments: Review of the release found at The Band Homepage:
2CD Band bootleg released on the Wild Wolf label in 2000, with tracks from 1971 live recordings and rehearsal tapes. All previously unreleased/ uncirculated according to this "ad" for the CDs:
Incredible 33-track, superb quality from master reel sources. Another fab Wild Wolf set with 25 previously unreleased/uncirculating performances from the NY City, Academy of Music, December 28-31, 1971/72 gigs that spawned "Rock of Ages" - but no overlap with that one. Plus a terrific 8-song rehearsal from UltraSonic Studios, Long Island, in Dec 1971, also uncirculating & in primo sound.
Beautifully dressed up color glossy set w/vintage Band pics (6) spread throughout a 3-panel gatefold paper sleeve and classic color live shot from the Academy on back cover. Disks are 24K gold plated, audiophile design, with black/gold song titles on disk. An absolute knockout 155+ minutes and an instant Hall-of-Famer.
