The Bootleg Series Vol. 9 - The Witmark Demos 1962-1964 (2010)
<-

This page is part of a list of original releases by release date of international commercially-released regular (normally) stereo Dylan albums. This album is actually in mono, but it's included here because it has been added to the bobdylan.com albums page! 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. Although this album is available in mono only, it's included here because it's listed on the bobdylan.com albums page.

All tracks were recorded live at the 1st Annual Folk Festival, Brandeis University, Waltham, MA, Friday 10 May 1963.

Thanks to Fred Muller for reminding me of the item in the "Isis" newsletter that Bob Dylan could headline an event called “50th Anniversary Bob Dylan Folk Festival”. Reported in “Brandeis Hoot” (Brandeis University’s Community Newspaper) the event, the brainchild of student organisers, would be held in the 2013 Spring semester to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Dylan’s concert there on 10 May 1963. However, the same student paper has now announced that Dylan’s booking price, nearly $300,000, would hamper the net finances of the university. It seems the event will still go ahead, but without Bob Dylan!

This 7-track CD in a card sleeve was given away as a bonus disc with copies of The Bootleg Series Vol. 9 - The Witmark Demos and the 9CD set The Original Mono Recordings . All tracks were recorded live at the 1st Annual Folk Festival, Brandeis University, Waltham, MA, Friday 10 May 1963. The advance artwork showed a card sleeve with spine text, which is the US design - the European and Australian card sleeves have no spine text. It also omitted the text in red "1ST SET" and "2ND SET", which is present on all three commercial releases shown. The CD itself has the design of a 1960s "audiosonic" blank (equivalent to a CD-R today). The European release has "Made in the EU" on both the rear sleeve and the CD. The Australian release has "Distributed in Australia by Sony Music Entertainment Australia Pty. Ltd." on both the rear sleeve and the CD. The European and Australian releases have the Sony Music logo, omitted from the US release. Thanks to Derek Barker of "Isis" magazine for pointing out that Bob's set took place on Friday evening 10 May 1963, not "SATURDAY EVENING" as on the back of the sleeve, and also that the ticket price on the Brandeis poster they published in "Isis" 152 was $4.00, not $4.40!

Thanks to "Isis" 152 for the picture of the Brandeis poster and the story of how this performance was discovered in the Ralph Gleason archives by site contributor Jeff Gold, for more details see Jeff's blog here . Thanks to Steven Jump of Badlands and Éamonn Ó Catháin for the artwork, to Derek Barker of "Isis" and Arie de Reus for information and to Moise Potié, Jeremy Mayle, Stuart Moore and Bill Hester for scans.

Columbia/Legacy/Sony Music 88697 84742 2 (Europe) - front with sticker (my copy)
Thanks to Andrew Wellman for news that amazon.com listed this 2010 bonus CD for general sale in the USA and Europe on 12 Apr 2011. The 2010 disc came in a card sleeve, but the 2011 release is in a jewel case and the front insert is an 8-page stapled booklet with notes by Michael Gray, author of "Song & Dance Man III: The Art of Bob Dylan" and "The Bob Dylan Encyclopaedia" (which contains a flattering entry about me and this site). There are also several previously unreleased photographs. The catalogue number is given incorrectly as "88597 84742 2" on the rear of the front insert. Thanks to Stuart Moore for scans of the Australian release.
