Bob Dylan’s Massive 36-CD ‘The 1966 Live Recordings’ Box Set Coming 11/11

bob-dylan-36-cd-set

When you’re named a Nobel Prize recipient for Literature, you can release exorbitantly large box sets chronicling one of the most iconic/noteworthy periods of you career.

That’s Bob Dylan‘s current reality, and he’ll do just that on November 11 when The 1966 Live Recordings is released. Spanning 36 CD, the huge set will feature archival live performances Dylan gave across the United States, the United Kingdom and in other European cities.

Rolling Stone quoted Legacy Recordings president Adam Block as lauding Dylan’s performances:

“The intensity of Bob’s live performances and his fantastic delivery of these songs in concert add another insightful component in understanding and appreciating the musical revolution Bob Dylan ignited some 50 years ago.”

It’s that reverence for Dylan, as a songwriter, cultural icon and musician, that has led to his Nobel Prize and this expansive box set.

Separate from this set is other release, The Real Royal Albert Hall 1966, chronicling his gig on May 26, 1966, which will also serve to ‘correct’ a bootleg that surfaced in the late-1990s. That standalone live record will be released on December 2.

    Cannot even begin to guess the M.S.R.P. of this collection! Should I apply now for my small business loan?
