The obscure Banjo Tape has never sounded better. Long thought to have come from a home recording by Gill Turner, it is now thought to have been recorded on February 8th at Folk City. Happy Traum sings harmony and plays the banjo (from whence the recording derived its' name). Gill Turner provides harmony on the final track. The Town Hall tape is a 'must-have' for fans of early Dylan. The concert was line recorded directly from the soundboard, and several tracks were intended for an ill-fated live CBS LP. Two tracks eventually did see official release. 'Tomorrow Is A Long Time' on 'Greatest Hits 2' and 'Masterpieces', and 'Last Thoughts On Woody' (wisely omitted on this release) on 'The Bootleg Series 1-3". Three other tracks from that show that were left off of this disc are 'Dusty Old Fairgrounds', 'All Over You', and 'John Brown'. It was a mistake leaving them off, and including a pirate track of 'Tomorrow Is A Long Time'. The package is incredible with beautiful photos and great looking aesthetics. -bobsboots.com
