Another brilliant archival collection from the Bootleg Series. If you've heard that Bob is three takes and he's done, think again. Listen to the entire CD devoted to Like A Rolling Stone and you'll hear the song go through a transformation to get to the version we know and love. The rest of the set has smaller versions of the song development process, as well as about 45 minutes worth of songs that didn't make it onto an album. Worth it if you can spare the cash.

By Jimi Jac TOP 500 REVIEWER on Nov. 8 2015
Format: Audio CD
Was not quite as excited as usual when I found out that the latest album in the Bootleg series was to cover the 65/66 period of Dylan career, considering that volumes 1 & 7 already covered this time, so listening to the cd feels similar to the “Witmark Demos” (Vol. 9) a defiant case of diminishing returns, there's probably one disc of worthwhile music spread over two albums.
A splattering of new tracks, the best probably “California”, a spiky up-tempo bluesy number, the rest of the album consisting of either works-in-progress or alterative takes of songs (it’s fascinating that Dylan seemed to instinctively know what worked & what didn’t), some of the highlights, a piano based version of “Desolation Row”, a jaunty salsa version of “Just like a Women” & “I want you” with a organ sound like my granddad used to play when I was young.
There’s no doubt that this album is full of incredible songs, with Dylan at his most innovative (although whenever there’s an top 100 albums of all time poll, it’s always “Blood on the Tracks” that ranks the highest) but there only a certain number of times that you can enjoy slightly different version of the same song.
So a fascinating listen, but no hidden gems revealed.

As in the past, these "Deluxe" editions are outrageously overpriced. Come on - almost $30 a disc (X6) for old material! Get real - talk about a cash grab!
