Re: [ARSCLIST] Dylan's "Great White Wonder" - query
Paul & Steven, et al -
Some of the tracks mentioned in earlier posts appear on my white label
boot entitled " Stealin' ", which I purchased back around 1969. The
record itself is on the Har-Cub Record Label and the quality of the
vinyl is abysmal. Even new it played poorly and got worse with each
subsequent play. And, no, it wasn't the needle in my old Rek-O-Kut
table! Haven't played it in many years.
Anyhow, the track list (which is actually on the disc):
Can I Crawl Out Your Window
It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry
Killing Me Alive
If You Gotta Go
She Belongs To Me
My Love Waits Like Silence
It's All Over Now Baby Blue
That's All Right Babe
Hard Times In New York Town / Stealin'
Wade In The Water
A mish-mosh of early acoustic, out-takes and pre-Band material.
I'm gonna play it one more time and digitize it.

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 bootlegs.
