Hi Greg.

I'm no Dylan expert (I leave that sort of thing to Keith "mussalami" Rusby!). I'm just intrigued by the fact that the actual record company call their CD the "official" bootleg, sort of a contradiction in terms. So the Bootleggers then issue theirs as the "genuine" bootleg.

I have heard rumours that there are some bootlegs which are faked and not Dylan at all, and others say they are Dylan but the rumours are put around by the record company to stop people buying them. Since I'm not a dylan completeist it doesn't bother me in the slightest as I wouldn't be buying them, fakes or not.
