  3. Another, so soon.
    Thanx yet again.

  4. Thanks
    I agree with your comment, the nice thing about getting these recordings digitally, is that we can chose what to keep and what to delete. At the moment I keep about 75-80 pct of each album. Everything is worth hearing once, but some I just chose not to save.
    But please just keep them coming.

  5. wow! they just keep coming. I thought this was a 14 vol. collection? Not complaing tho!

  6. I'm addicted, thanks for the fix.

  7. one of my favorite singers, Southside Johnny, sings one of my favorite Bob Dylan's song. Wonderful. Thank you very much

  8. Congratulations! I´m a brazilian fã of Dylan and I have a band that plays Dylan's songs. Take a look at "Dinoboys" on Youtube.


    Thanks for the words: you keep this thing going!

    P.S. Lemonflag, You're percentage is higher than min but out attitudes are identical.

  10. Thanks for sharing. I haven't heard quit a few of these tracks so I'm looking forward to listening.

  11. Thanks! I LOVE this series. I have most already but like a knucklehead, I attached labels to them and now they aren't healthy. Thanks again.
