Bob Dylan Manchester May 17th 1966

A bona fide classic for tonight's latest post - Bob Dylan's electric set from Manchester's Free Trade Hall, May 17th 1966. This was bootlegged for years as being from the Royal Albert Hall, and is (in)famous for the shout of "Judas" by a disgruntled folk music fan. (Dylan played two sets - the 1st accoustic & the 2nd the controversial "electric" one, backed by "The Hawks" who later became "The Band"). We can't imagine now the accusations of sell out and being a traitor levelled at someone for playing an electric Fender guitar but it was a different world back then... This is one of my all time favourite albums & one I had for years on a scratchy old bootleg until better quality CD's were released, both officially & as boots. Anyway, those in the know will welcome this... if otherwise, give it a try & marvel..... http://rapidshare.com/files/341079572/Bob_Dylan_-_The_Bootleg_Series__Vol._4__Bob_Dylan_Live__1966__The_Royal_Albert_Hall_Concert__Live___


  1. Hello.
    I always loved this show. I saw somewhere it was voted the best bootleg of all time

  2. SO sorry this link isn't working anymore--I've read about this show and would love to hear it. Once more, your stuff is unspeakably awesome, you've turned me on to lots of great new stuff!
