Dylan, Royal Albert Hall. Arguably one of the most iconic rock concerts of all time. But how did it get to its official release? The label decided not to do a live album at the time. How did it generate such a demand that it would be issued as The Bootleg Series, Vol. 4 in 1996, and still revered over twenty years later?

The bootlegs.

Often incomplete, sometimes woefully inadequite, but the boots kept the legend alive through the years. Interest in this performance led to multiple bootlegs, which is an interesting history in its own. I invite you to explore these unofficial releases on the fantastic site below, Bob’s Boots. Invaluable resource for unofficial Dylan!
