Finding Dylan bootlegs is easy, but knowing which ones to pass up isn't.  The low-key Bob's Boots site ( has documented more than 1,500 albums, with accompanying commentary on sound quality as well as a review of the performance itself.  And the CD section has a search engine that lets you sort recordings by concert venue or date, so you can track down that show you saw at the Gaslight Café back in '61.  And while you can't buy bootlegs on the site (it's illegal), you can hookup with traders who might be willing to send you a copy.  Few artists are as enigmatic as Robert Allen Zimmerman, and fewer still have bodies of work that are as well-documented.  It's an irony Bob Dylan would be proud of - assuming he ever logs on to find out about it.
