Review:© 2001 Craig Pinkerton Bobsboots.com
An incredible 1993 release from Spank, that includes beautiful photographs, great aesthetics, and an hour of rare tracks in excellent overall sound quality. The Freewheelin' sessions are a perfect 10, coming right off of the mixing console. The quality is good enough to release as official tracks, but the performances are flawed by a botched word, timing, or something similar that left them behind in the vaults. The quality slips to a 7 for (1) and (2), but the powerful and controversial You've Been Hiding is mesmerizing none the less. The quality of the Hotel tape slips even farther to a 5, a 4, and finally to a 3 on Just Like A Woman; and is included only because of its rarity. The 1969 studio outtakes zoom right back to a 9, giving this disc a wide range of sound qualities.
