    Whew, well, you're a more indulgent fan than i my friend terrible acting i feel, an interesting exercise but it doesn't reveal anything for me about the road. I found Larry Sloman's On The Road book really puts you there, at least for me. I still got a copy on VHS floating around of R&S and haven't felt the urge to pop it in since that format was in vogue! (and it's not like i'm not invested in that era, hell, i've got one of them brass buckles!;-) Glad someone really enjoys it tho'!

    Still kinda reeling from hearing Easy & Slow the other day via the NPR stream. Was totally transfixed, i got a big huge time weakness for Bob doing covers, 'specially ones from old ballads like that. Giving voice to the songs rattling around his head, irresistible ...

    Me, too. I don't like the song at all and I'm not blown away by the performance. Obviously, I'm in a minority of one and I'll live with that. Maybe I'm just a foo-well...

    Glad it’s not just me. I never listen to advance previews. Just want to hear the whole thing in its entirety when it’s released.

    Hey, don't go beating up on yourself for what you like, that's a terrible alley to be walking in. Everybody isn't supposed to like everything all the time, nothing would mean much if it did. And to be honest, at this point in me listening to it, what moves me most is that he played it then and put it out for consumption now, not that it cracks any mystery around him or anything, but how he's still got a dialogue with those old songs. It's definitely not in the Golden Vanity level to me, at least not yet.

    So, sorry bud, you ain't no fool to sticking to your guns! Wha? You don't just wanna mind of your own?!?!?:tiphat:

    In preparing its spot on my shelf, has anyone posted the dimensions of the outer box? The pictures suggest the outside height of the box is CD size.

    I don’t like everything, but I do need to hear it. This era has cocaine all over it, for better or worse.

    "Initial orders smashed Sony's expectations but more stock has been guaranteed and will be available for the release date of 7th June. However the stock is still likely to run out quickly..."

    The 1966 recordings box is still in stock. So my advice is: don't panic!

    But in theory this could have a smaller run because the 1966 box hasn’t sold out

    Didn’t initial run of that box sell out as well? I seem to remember mass panic for that one on release day

    Yes, much like this box, the initial run of "The 1966 Live Recordings" sold out on pre-orders. I think it took a week...

    As others have mentioned, it was reprinted (perhaps more than once). In fact, unlike the more elaborate Bootleg Series boxes, it seems the streamlined packaging of the 1966 box makes it economically viable to keep it in print indefinitely and I imagine it’ll be the same for the RTR set.
