In 1966 There Was
This is most likely the first ever release of the Manchester/London tape. Although the cover stamp simply says "Live in Concert", The LP label says "Royal Albert Hall".  The tape from the CBS acetate had been in the hands of only a few privileged individuals for the previous four years. Now it was being given to the fans. The somewhat mistaken  label would forever brand all of the tracks of this incredible recording as "The Royal Albert Hall".

According to the cover stamp (and our research) this very rare 1970 English release by an unknown label is the first ever issue of what would be an endless number of releases and re-releases of the famous recording that would forever be known as 'The Royal Albert Hall'. In fact, it was taken from an unreleased CBS acetate of an  intended live Bob Dylan LP that never saw the light of day. The tracks were from London May 26, 1966 and Manchester May 17, 1966. This LP was also issued in the GWW wrap-around cover. There is also some confusion about an entirely different LP that appeared in this cover. You can find it listed as
