1974 Tour Live (3CD Digipack) by Bob Dylan & The Band

1974 Tour Live (3CD Digipack)

We are told .....

  • The entire original WBCN and WNEW-FM Broadcasts of two historic shows from the early part of their 1974 tour; Boston Garden and Madison Square Garden.
  • Professionally re-mastered with background liners and rare archival photos.

For Dylan’s first proper tour since 1966, he was joined by his longstanding colleagues The Band. Expectations for both acts ran high, with huge venues swiftly selling out and immense media interest. It was no nostalgia act, though: whilst Dylan performed old material, he did so with considerable attack, as well as showcasing songs from his new Planet Waves LP.

The Band also played alone, showing themselves to be arguably the finest group of their sort in the world. This release offers two historic shows from the early part of the tour, both originally broadcast on FM radio. They are presented here together with background notes and images.
