Yeah, and Boston, too.
I don't care that they already carved up both shows to give us BS#5, I want full shows!

I bet the OP is kicking himself/herself for typing "review" instead of "revue", but it's too late to change now unless some mods can work miracles...

Are these Amazon links maybe two separate releases?
The 1 disc is the "Soundtrack" to the documentary and the 14 disc is the collector's edition.
I'll take them both though anyway.
So I'll hold off the pre-order until there's an official announcement.


Makes sense. Any idea if the $213 price is legit? Of course without any info, it's hard to judge the price, and I get that 14 CDs is impressive and who knows what (incomplete) pamphlet will accompany it, but how does that price compare to previous BS-releases? Anyone done a tally of retail prices of them?


The price is for the Japanese import.

It’s easily done. Just pick anyone.
Or, maybe it’s a “review” of the Revue?

You mean this thread is a review of a barely announced box set? Because amazon says "revue". I assumed I'm not the only one who is irked by it, but maybe I am.

I tried to give up being irked long ago.
It sneaks up at times, though. I get it.

I’m happy for the ‘75 stuff and ‘76 will be fun too.
Ready for the future too, if Dylan, Inc. allows it.

The title of the thread was copied from a report elsewhere on the internet, maybe a mod could change it to the correct "Rolling Thunder Revue: The 1975 Live Recordings (14 CDs)", before people start to lose sleep over it.

Same here.
Best to revue all the options before committing.

The only reason you guys beat me to all of the clever lines and comebacks is because I don't think of them first.

BTW I'm calling it now.

In May there will be this 1975 set.

Followed by BS15 RTR1976 set in November.

Hmm, amazon.com and amazon.co.uk have removed the product page. Strange. But maybe they are working on the real fully detailed page?

It's also No disponible on amazon.es.
At least it's still listed under Mis pedidos and not cancelled.

Yeah, this always happens. I guess the release is added to some central database when it registers its release code, which is like a barcode that music has to be registered with to get royalties ect. I imagine Amazon automatically populates its site with releases from this database, then humans manually take down major releases that have appeared before they've been officially announced.

I feel like the 75 sets were rather stagnant and unchanging, both in songs and arrangements. Hopefully we get (for folks like me) some bonus stuff no one has heard yet, or a chopped down 2-4 disc set.

1976 just seemed much more loose, ragged, and ready to go off the rails. The arrangements varied almost nightly on some songs, and the song choices were a bit more adventurous. Hope eventually 1976 gets its due representation

according to Olof's files 39 different songs were performed in 1975 (see: http://www.bjorner.com/1975%20The%20Cir ... 20Town.pdf )
they also say that 24 (out of 31) complete shows are in circulation. Thus I wonder why it's only 14 CDs…

What what what?! Too cool! I'm so glad to hear that Sony's doing this. Not entirely for the box set itself - excited as I am to hear more 1975 shows in good quality, the setlist is comparatively limited - but because they might do something similar for the much weirder 1976 and 1978 tours in the future. I'll be snatching this up ASAP.

This reminds me of seeing a fake picture of a complete Never Ending Tour box set/truck hybrid.:lol:
I believe it was posted on the Hoffman forum when the Cutting Edge collector's edition was announced. Who knows, maybe it will become reality one day...

Yeah, I'd actually rather a '76 set than a '75 one.

With 14 discs, there should be room for at least one complete show including the actual "revue" portion of the show with all the guest performers. Why bother calling it Rolling Thunder Revue if you don't include the actual revue?

I would love to see the "Night of the Hurricane" show get "The Complete Last Waltz" treatment including all guest performances and speeches as well as any video footage if it is available. As the final show of the 1975 leg, with Dylan coming back to the city where his career began, it just feels like a historic event as well as a great performance.

Because that was the name of the tour? Should songs on the Neverending tour never stop playing? I dont know about y'all but I could give two shizzles about the other performers (unless there is any recording of Ginsbergs participation, but I always assumed he was more the guru rather than someone who was miced up? Am I wrong?).

According to insiders, there are still at least two NET performances of Spirit On The Water under way right now somewhere.

I didn't get that joke... Is it because Spirit on the Water is a pretty boring song?
