Anyone whose visited MRML before knows that I maintain a fanatic devotion to both the works of Bob Dylan and the musical archives of the BBC. BBC recordings are crucial historical documents, which map a midway point between the polish of an artist's studio recordings and the immediacy of their live work.
Now, as the liner notes above will explain (click to read), this is NOT a bootleg of any material in CBS/Sony's vaults. These Recordings Of Independent Origin (ROIO) are, in fact, surprisingly clear recording of two solo concerts concerts Dylan did for the BBC in June of 1965 that were RECORDED DIRECTLY OFF THE TV BY DIE-HARD FANS!
That said, if Web Sheriff, the web monitoring group Dylan's management employ, still believe that this ROIO is not fair game it shall be taken down at once. (I would prefer to do the deed myself, if necessary, but when this POST, also exclusively composed of ROIO material, was judged improper, it was pulled for me). In all fairness, while I do believe that Web Sheriff can overreach, they are nowhere near as heavy-handed as the RIAA et al and do not confuse obsessives with criminals.
