This page is part of a list of original releases by release date of international commercially-released regular stereo Dylan albums. They do not contain rarities or obscurities and are not eligible for the Searching For A Gem list. Nevertheless, their interest value or scarcity means they're worth listing here - as far as I know some are not included on any other Internet site. Promo releases of regular albums are now listed here and no longer in the former yearly Promo sections.

This page is still incomplete - more entries required. For releases of this album in Columbia multi-packs, see International Album Releases (Regular) - Multi-Packs.

US release (2CD), Columbia/Legacy C2K 65759, 12 Oct 1998

This album, recorded live with The Hawks (later The Band) at the Free Trade Hall, Manchester, 17 May 1966, has had a long history before being finally released. The title refers to the fact that bootleg releases of the concert were erroneously attributed to the Royal Albert Hall, London, for many years. Columbia prepared a master of the concert in 1994, which was reportedly rejected by Bob because it was "too clean" and didn't reflect the audience's experience. At least one copy of this master on DAT found its way into the hands of bootleggers to become widely circulated as Guitars Kissing And The Contemporary Fix (the title of a chapter heading in Bob Dylan's book "Tarantula", see Questionable Releases). One track from this abandoned master, I Don't Believe You, was released in error on the recalled release of Biograph, see 1997. It's All Over Now, Baby Blue from this show was released on Biograph in 1985, so appears here in remastered form.

This title was one of the fifteen Dylan albums scheduled for release in late 2003 as a hybrid CD/SA-CD, although it was subsequently dropped. This would have been playable both in stereo on an ordinary CD player and in perhaps in 5.1 surround sound on an SA-CD player or a DVD player that also plays SA-CDs (Sony's higher range models all do this).


Picture from eBay (Emidisc test pressing)
The mono test pressing on an Emidisc recording blank with pink handwritten text plays at 33⅓ RPM and lasts 8:20. It is a mono occurrence of this performance with the famous "Judas!" shout and Bob's response, much bootlegged as from the "Royal Albert Hall" concert, and finally released in stereo in 1998. For more details, see 1966.

Covering letter from Brian Carroll, photo by Alex Greenway (I.B.C. acetate)

The I.B.C. mono acetate contains two tracks recorded live with The Hawks (later The Band) from the concert at the Free Trade Hall, Manchester, 17 May 1966, finally released in 1998 as The Bootleg Series Vol. 4 - Bob Dylan Live 1966: The "Royal Albert Hall" Concert after years of being one of Dylan's most famous bootlegs. As well as Ballad Of A Thin Man, it includes Like A Rolling Stone with the infamous "Judas!" shout. The record was engineered by Brian Carroll at I.B.C. Recording Studios, 35 Portland Place, London, W1. It has a red I.B.C. generic label with black handwritten text and is accompanied by a covering letter from Brian authenticating the disc as the only copy. Brian has also signed the label. The owner Alex Greenway has researched Brian Carroll and confirmed he was indeed an engineer working for I.B.C. at the time the acetate was made. Again, for more details see 1966.

For Columbia LP-length acetates of the 1966 live performance with The Hawks, see International Album Releases (Dylan-only Compilations) 1965-69.

For performances included in 1991 on a CD with Il Dizionario del Rock, an Italian part-work magazine, which are probably from this concert, also see Questionable Releases.

For the story of Bob's 1966 Manchester concert, read "Like The Night: Bob Dylan and the Road to the Manchester Free Trade Hall" by C P Lee (Helter Skelter Books, UK, 1998), revised as "Like The Night (Revisited)" (Helter Skelter Books, UK, 2004).

The insert is blank on the reverse.

This set comes in a slimline 2CD jewel case without a slipcase. It is dated 2010 on the rear insert, the rear of the front booklet and the CDs. Bizarrely, the CDs have text "ORIGINALLY RELEASED 1985" (the date It's All Over Now, Baby Blue from this show was released on Biograph). This must be a mistake, as Ian Woodward assures me no release of the complete show was planned in 1985.

Thanks to Jeffy from Taiwan for information about this item.

The Taiwan version of Live 1966 has an extra 48-page booklet in addition to the 56-page booklet normally included with the CD set. The Chinese booklet includes some never-before-seen pictures of Dylan, an essay in Chinese about Dylan’s career before 1966, and Chinese translations of all the lyrics of the songs that Dylan performed on 17 May 1966.

This set comes in a card slipcase and is part of a series of reissues of "Live" Columbia albums (also including Bob Dylan At Budokan in this section and MTV Unplugged, see 1995). It has a single width 2CD jewel case. The album packaging is minimal, with just the front picture and track listings, no other album artwork. The rear insert is plain on the reverse, the front insert has just the tracklisting. The CDs are plain red with just the title in silver, again truncated to "LIVE 1966".

As can be seen, the inside of the front insert has only the tracklisting with Brazilian copyright numbers, there is no other information.

Thanks to Alexandre Froemming for this album.
