This release is, as the title indicates, various oddities and outtakes taken over a 20 year span. The review is mixed. The Package is fair, though not outstanding. The graphic aesthetics are weak. Full historic info on the tracks is included on the insert. The recordings are a mixed bag of rarities and standard fare in a range of sound quality. The gem that makes this package worth the price is the previously unknown You've Been Hidin' Too Long, a searing protest a'la Masters Of War. The rarely heard Working On A Guru, from a May 1, 1970 studio tape with George Harrison and Charlie Daniels is a Beatlesque pop song. Both songs are in great quality. Let Me See is little more than Bob humming a chorus to guitar chords, but it causes one to wonder if this nice sounding tune ever developed further. There are other highlights that make this a nice addition to the collection, especially for the fan of studio outtakes.
