New Flagging Down the Double E's compilation
Ray I love this so much! I'm so happy you included Knockin' and Blowin'! My first Bob show was Nov 2002 in Indianapolis and they finished with Knockin'. I was sobbing from those harmonies. Unreal.
I was a kid of maybe 12 or so when AJ Weberman went dumpster diving through Bob's garbage. I thought "that's freaky and excessive ". It's so good to see this Mr Padget fellow refining the search for meaning and process in Dylan...this Double EEs page is super.
I wish I could upgrade. I probably should
Big fan of your book, but by selling your subscriptions on the back of bootleg recordings you are crossing into murky—and frankly illegal—waters. Please reconsider.
"Some of these bootleggers, they make pretty good stuff." - YouKnowWho
The great website "Thousand Highways" curated astonishing Dylan samplers, and shared them freely. You really should be charging a subscription for your excellent writing and original research, not for the distribution, and yes, curation of "field recordings", which we ALL been sharing in the divine fellowship of anal retentive collectors! This "now that you're hooked, if you want Volume 2 (and boy, I do!!), you have to pay me" linkage is somewhat eyebrow raising and Dylan's management alerting. You might reconsider, and I speak as a proud owner/funder of your great book! Never blinked at buying that!
Awesome! Thanks Ray!
Illegal?? Not unless and until Columbia wanted any of the tracks for official release.
