Darkness at the Break of Noon

A friend gave me this boot the other night and if you're a Dylan fan, you're going to want it too. The songs are from a series of rehearsals for Dylan's 1978 tour and were recorded in a studio. So, the sound quality is much better than a typical bootleg. The quality decreases as the disc progresses but it's still a fun listen for fans because Dylan was doing a lot of highly alternative versions of his songs during this period. Lots of background singers, organ and horns. Basically...70's style!

Sorry about the mix-up. It gets confusing when there are so many tracks to post. I'll fix it tonight so you can come back and get those last two tracks later.

I remember someone saying he saw Dylan rehearsing this tour in a below ground studio in L.A. He happened to walk by and saw them through the below street windows in full swing. I believe the European section of this tour was the best, especially in London at Earl's Court. The Toronto, Canada show which I saw was good, but he was reciting the first third of the show before he caught fire.
