Bob Dylan - Little White Wonder Volume II (an Italian bootleg record)

I figure I have been a Dylan fan for about half of my life. And I have spent about an hour or two a month for the last 10 years in record stores combing through their used discs - buying rare albums and Bob Dylan records off the shelf. I still wish I had more Bob Dylan 45s.

Today's highlight: the bootleg album: Little White Wonder Volume II. This is an old Italian bootleg record I picked up several years ago. I have owned it for years and only listened to it a handful of times. Holding the disc in my hand today as I write this... it's in remarkably great shape - probably for this very reason it has only been played two or three times in as many decades. Now it's a bootleg collector's item!


The cover: Shot from an LA concert - 2/14/74

I had the songs from LWW2 burned from vinyl by a sound tech I ran into once. That has allowed me to give them the songs the occasional listen - and to share the tracks with you today! These are bootleg tracks - never before released and not available commercially. FOr this reason - the fact I am sharing these songs does not harm Bob Dylan and no money is being directed from the Columbia label. The songs are free! Check 'em out:

Also - if you have no sound or speakers, this is the best option. - Ryan (Keepin' It Real)
