The page on bobdylan.com about the Harry Smith Anthology of American Folk Music has a radio broadcast of an interview with Greil Marcus which includes unreleased performances of Bob Dylan and the Hawks performing Ballad Of A Thin Man from the Royal Albert Hall,  London, 26 May 1966, and Bob Dylan and the Band performing the following songs from the Basement Tapes, 1967:

All I Have To Do Is Dream - unreleased song
Clothesline Saga - unreleased alternate version
Lo And Behold! - unreleased alternate version
Tears Of Rage (Bob Dylan-Richard Manuel) - alternate version from the original Basement Tapes circulated to artists in 1968 (R-0382 - see Questionable Releases)
This recording also contains I'm Not There (1956), listed below (BDC1) and I'm Your Teenage Prayer (BDC9) Nick Ralph confirms all the Basement cuts have no clicks or pops, indicating a tape source, not an acetate as I originally stated.

Greil Marcus interview items - although supposedly from acetates, only Ballad Of A Thin Man appears to be.


1997


Dec 1997:

BDC0    Big Yellow Taxi (Joni Mitchell) - from the 1973 Columbia album Dylan (R-0102) [this was notified to me in Jun 2000] - the full song is included in the songs pages, not just a sample

BDC1    I'm Not There (1956) - unreleased track from the Basement Tapes, 1967, now released on the original soundtrack of the Todd Haynes film I'm Not There, see 2007
It has now been released in Nov 2014 on The Bootleg Series Vol. 11 - The Basement Tapes Complete (CD3, track 11) and The Bootleg Series Vol. 11 - The Basement Tapes Raw (CD1, track 10), so is no longer a rarity.

BDC5    Lay Down Your Weary Tune - Carnegie Hall, New York City, 26 Oct 1963 (stereo version), from the cancelled 1964 album Bob Dylan In Concert (R-0370, see 1964)

I originally reported that this was in stereo - the 1965 released version was in mono only. However, Nick Ralph points out it was in mono!
Take 17 has now been released in stereo on The Cutting Edge 1965-1966: The Bootleg Series Vol. 12 (6CD Deluxe Edition) CD4, track 2, and The Cutting Edge 1965-1966: The Bootleg Series Vol. 12 (18 CD Collector's Edition) CD6, track 19. Because BDC10/R-0044 is in mono, it remains a rarity.

Dreamin' Of You
There are also free downloadable MP3 files of Dreamin' Of You and Mississippi from the forthcoming Bootleg Series Vol. 8: Tell Tale Signs, see here. Dreamin' Of You is 5:54 whereas the stated length of the album track is 6:23, but the longer time appears to be an error. For a promotional CD single with a 3:34 radio edit of Dreamin' Of You, see 2008. For Mississippi, see here. (I assume this is unreleased version #1, track 1 of CD1 of Bootleg Series Vol. 8: Tell Tale Signs.)
