The previously released Japanese double-disc Bob Dylan live collection featuring concert material taped between 1962 and 1966 will finally be released globally on Friday (July 27th). Rolling Stone reported, "Live 1962 - 1966: Rare Performances From The Copyright Collections begins with solo acoustic tunes taped at Gerde’s Folk City in New York’s Greenwich Village in 1962, continues with major moments from his folk career -- including Dylan’s 1963 headlining show at Carnegie Hall -- and concludes with songs from his legendary 1965/66 electric tour where he enraged folk purists by playing with a rock band."

Among the classic Dylan tunes featured on the set is the earliest known live version of "Blowin’ In The Wind," "Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right," "The Times They Are A-Changin," "Girl From The North Country," "Mr. Tambourine Man," "It Ain’t Me, Babe," "It’s Alright, Ma (I’m Only Bleeding)," "Chimes Of Freedom," "Maggie’s Farm," "She Belongs To Me," "Maggie’s Farm," "Visions Of Johanna," and "It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue," among others.

George Harrison, along with the Beatles, caught Bob Dylan's May 26th, 1966 show at London's Royal Albert Hall and he recalled the scene that night: "The show was in two halves and the first half, he came out and did his usual thing with the guitar and the harmonica. And then, on the second half, he came out with the Band. Now, we knew this was gonna happen anyway, but most of the audience in the Albert Hall were. . . they were kind of disturbed. Y'know, a lot of them were, like, really uptight, 'cause they were, like, 'Hey, he's forsaken the folk. . .' -- y'know? But Bob just came out and said, 'Well, y'all may know this song, um, remember how it goes? Well, it here's how it goes now!' (Laughs) And they just went off wailing. Y'know, it was good. It was a great show -- I mean, ragged, but, y'know, that is the nature of Bob."
