Re: [ARSCLIST] Dylan's "Great White Wonder" - query
Yes,and I believe my particular Trademark of Quality issue dates from 1970.This has an orange slipsheet,with four small photos of Dylan,and the TMOQ pig,at the center bottom.Two photos are labeled ''Greenwich Village,1962'',one labeled''Folklore Center,New York 1962'',and one just ''1963''.It has the large numeral labels,and is not a gatefold.

As Steven Abrams wrote, the original bootleg album called "A Great
White Wonder" was a compilation of tracks from different periods in
Dylan's career. It had the first release of material from the
Basement Tapes, though other bootlegs shortly after captured more of
the tracks from those sessions.
The first issue of "A Great White Wonder" appeared in Summer 1969. It
was a double fold-open album with glossy white paste-over cover, and
no printing of any kind. The disc labels were off-white or cream, and
had no information either.
The bootleg was itself quickly bootlegged, with the famous pink
rubber stamp on the front, proclaiming "A Great White Wonder." The
rubber stamp format was popular for a long time afterwards among
