in the late 60s/early 70s of unissued Bob Dylan pulled from the Columbia
files. Untitled, and in a plain white sleeve, one of these bootlegs
appeared on the Har-Kub label. I have never seen lousier quality vinyl.
Ever. Still have the record because it is pretty rare, and the material
was the first release of the material thereon. Later, of course, it was
all "officially" released on various "bootleg" compilations produced
by... Columbia, naturally!
