The Grogan material is good, solid, historically important; and of great quality. The original demo of Mr Tambourine Man with Ramblin' Jack Elliot is what was sent to the Byrds. Most of the other acetate recordings are more or less unedited versions of the official releases. The most notable difference is in All I Really Want To Do, which contains an extra verse. The bulk of the material was taken directly from the 1994 bootleg release Emmet Grogan Acetates. There is little rhyme or reason to the choice of the filler material. Mostly snippets from venues that have been booted, and/or officially released  for quite sometime. A problem with the two 1966 songs is that they are both recorded on the same track.
