I hope all is well out there in cyberspace.
For some time, I have been "publishing" compilations of Bob Dylan field recordings and outtakes on expectingrain.com. That has been rewarding, and seems to have brought some small amount of joy to the world.
The two years or so that this project has taken have been fruitful, and I'd like to share the compilations with a wider group of people. That, of course, is where this blog comes in.
Over the next several months, I hope to post the full collection of tapes, which span the years 1965 - 2013. I will also do my best to link to retailers so that you might purchase the official Columbia releases which relate to these posts.
I can't say strongly enough that I disagree with piracy, and encourage listeners to purchase available recordings through legitimate stores. All recordings found here are unreleased, and no money should be paid to anyone but the artist/record company for these songs. If the links found herein contain anything which could be purchased elsewhere, or otherwise cause offense, please send me a message and they will be removed ASAP. I claim no rights to these recordings, or my edits of them.
Please post comments as you see fit, and most of all: enjoy! There is a wonderful appreciation of truth and beauty to found in the art etched upon these ones and zeroes.
